How to use cover up in a sentence?

  1. House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff:

    A Director of National Intelligence has never prevented a properly submitted whistleblower complaint that the IC IG determined to be credible and urgent from being provided to the congressional intelligence committees. Never. This raises serious concerns about whether White House, Department of Justice or other executive branch officials are trying to prevent a legitimate whistleblower complaint from reaching its intended recipient, the Congress, in order to cover up serious misconduct.

  2. Zoe Lofgren:

    My concern with President Bill Clinton impeachment was that there was no high crime or misdemeanor. Lying about sex does not disrupt the constitutional order. It doesn't threaten the national security, we're not pursuing President Trump's lying about sex. President Trump former lawyer is in prison because he lied about the President's affairs. That has nothing to do with undercutting the constitutional order. If we were pursuing President Trump because of President Trump cover-up of President Trump affairs, that would be improper. And we're not going to do that.

  3. Jerry Nadler:

    The Department's decision reflects President Trump's blanket defiance of Congress's constitutionally mandated duties, in the coming days, I expect that Congress will have no choice but to confront the behavior of this lawless Administration. The Committee will also take a hard look at the officials who are enabling this cover up.

  4. Melissa Mays Melissa Mays:

    That's criminal. I'm sorry. There's no other word for it, the fact that they took away my right as a mother to protect my children because they chose to cover up and lie instead of fixing the problem or at least addressing it, they chose to hide it from us and then we ended up poisoning our children. And there's nothing they can say or do that will take that away and fix it.

  5. Moshe Maimon:

    Yet another jury has rejected J&J's misleading claims that its talc was free of asbestos, the internal J&J documents that the jury saw, once more laid bare the shocking truth of decades of cover- up, deception and concealment by J&J.
