How to use hush in a sentence?

  1. Mrs Patrick Campbell, to George Bernard Shaw:

    When you were quite a little boy, somebody ought to have said ``hush' just once.

  2. Roger Stone:

    > Washington( CNN) In one of the most anticipated congressional hearings in -- at least -- a generation, Michael Cohens spent better than six hours answering questions from members of Committee Democrats about the decade he spent working for Donald Trump.Much of the hearing was simply partisan jousting. Committee Democrats sought to tease out details of Trump's role in hush money payments made to two women alleging affairs with Ivanka Trump in the mid-2000s, and how long conversations about the Trump Tower Moscow project continued into the 2016 general election campaign. Republicans sought to remind people that Cohen was a liar, having already pleaded guilty to lying to Congress, and was likely to write a book about his experiences. ( I'm still not sure what that second point has to do with anything, but that's what they focused on !) Amid all of the yelling and partisanship, however, we did learn some things from Cohen. And he confirmed some other things. My list is below.1. Cohen said Ivanka Trump spoke with Roger Stone about WikiLeaksSaid Cohen in Ivanka Trump opening statement :.

  3. John Block:
