How to use flake in a sentence?

  1. Vincent Grashaw:

    A huge thing I learned playing Flake is that these child killers that we see on the news are a lot more like the rest of us than we think, it can just take a few wrong moves or hateful comments from the people around you for you to make a decision that will turn you into something entirely different.

  2. Chuck Grassley:

    So we can just delay and delay and delay, if we don't vote for any more judges that Flake doesn't want to vote for until September, we still probably got plenty to do.

  3. Deborah Ramirez:

    I know Jeff Flake has been torn, i share those concerns and I have to say my good friend Chris Coons is Chris Coons, he really wanted to create a better way to go forward.

  4. New York:

    Who did Senate Republicans call when they couldn't get FBI Director Chris Wray on the phone last week, as they were trying to allay Jeff Flake's fears about the investigation ? Rod Rosenstein.

  5. Jeff Flake:

    This is the first time that a number of senators have actually stood up, a number of Senators from the President's party and said,' No, Jeff Flake can't do that, and we're going to pass legislation to rein this in,' and so that is our prerogative, that's what we should be doing, that's what we should have been doing sooner than now.
