How to use groundwork in a sentence?

  1. Heidi Heitkamp:

    Any time a president comes to North Dakota, it’s a great opportunity to lay the groundwork for a better future for our businesses and our families.

  2. Jeff Flake:

    The president had this diversion tactic, obviously, with so-called Spygate, there is concern that the president is laying the groundwork to move on Bob Mueller or Rosenstein. If that were to happen, obviously, that would cause a constitutional crisis.

  3. Donald Trump:

    The indictment dramatically alters the case, although not in a way that will surprise National Review readers. There continues to be no connection to the Trump campaign( which Manafort briefly chaired and Gates also served), much less any suggestion of collusion between the campaign and Russia. The new indictment, however, retreats from the original allegations of money laundering, failure to register as foreign agents, and the so-called conspiracy against the United States. We observed back in November that all of these charges seemed problematic … We also noted at the time that the oddest thing about the original indictment was the absence of tax-evasion and bank-fraud charges. Mueller had seemed to lay the groundwork for these allegations but to have refrained from charging them.Voila ! The case is now exclusively a tax and bank-fraud case.

  4. Sebastien Bazin:

    The year 2014 was busy. We have laid the groundwork to become the most innovative, best performing and most highly valued hotel group.

  5. Jesselyn Radack:

    These cases are part of a coordinated campaign to deprive the public of information about our government, and they lay the groundwork to go after more mainstream media sources, outlets and publishers.
