How to use hook in a sentence?

  1. Dennis Feltgen:

    Don’t think for a second that anybody is off the hook.

  2. President Trump:

    In the Hillary Clinton Campaign where Hillary Clinton deleted 33,000 Emails, got $ 145,000,000 while Secretary of State, paid McCabe’s wife $ 700,000( and got off the FBI hook along with Terry McAuliffe M) and so much more. Republicans and real Americans should start getting tough on this Scam.

  3. Andy Parker:

    If there is such a thing as bipartisanship left in this country, this is where we can do it, im doing this for the Sandy Hook families, the Parkland families, everyone who has been victimized.

  4. John Demers:

    Fundamentally, the reason why the firm was on the hook is, after the firm got an inquiry from the FARA unit, it then went to the partner who was in charge of this matter and asked about the inquiry, and based on his representations then made a series of representations to the Justice Department that were not accurate, and when you think about the lack of due diligence that went into the work that was done before the representations were made to Justice Department, and when you think about how different Justice Department is from what you would advise your clients to do... it's really remarkable.

  5. Lee Trevino:

    You can talk to a fade but a hook won't listen.
