How to use exactly in a sentence?

  1. Elle Fanning:

    We see this operation targeting largely U.S. public debate and engaging in the sort of political issues that are challenging and sometimes divisive in the U.S. right now, whenever you do that, a piece of what you engage on are topics that are going to matter for the election. But I can't say exactly what their goal was.

  5. Kurt Russell:
