How to use peel in a sentence?

  1. Devin Nunes:

    What do I want about The Mueller report ? I don't care what's in The Mueller report. Matter of fact, I call it the Mueller dossier, what I want is the information underlying The Mueller report, so that we can actually look into it. Because every time we peel back the onion in this case, what do we find ? We find out that, somehow, higher-level officials within the DOJ and FBI were misleading the American people and the courts.

  2. Sean Orton:

    Being able to kind of peel back the superficial muscles and looking into the deep muscles and understanding the origins is a very good kind of tool before actual dissection and cadavers in the lab, seeing where those muscles are and then taking that to a real body and then observing it in a live person.

  3. Doug Ford:

    We can not afford a province-wide lockdown, so we are taking preventative action today by moving Toronto and Peel into lockdown level restrictions, we need to take decisive action to stop the spread of this deadly virus.

  4. The Texas senator:

    New York , Sanders vowed. The Republicans were battling for 95 delegates. Republican Donald Trump, originally from Queens, would need to win more than 50 percent of the vote statewide - – and dominate across the congressional districts -- to have a shot at claiming all those delegates. The importance of every last delegate has increased in recent weeks as Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has appeared to outmaneuver Trump’s campaign in the behind-the-scenes preparations for July’s convention. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has been laying the groundwork for a contested convention – - where no candidate has the necessary 1,237 delegates to clinch the nomination – - by getting allies elected as delegates. That way, if voting extends to a second round, some of those pledged to Republican Donald Trump on the first round could peel off and support Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. This has heightened the pressure on Republican Donald Trump to clinch the nomination before the convention, though Cruz’s recent wins have made that harder. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who infamously panned Trump's New York values earlier in the primary, had been bracing for a tough showing in the Empire State. The Texas senator was already looking ahead on the primary calendar, turning The Texas senator attention to Pennsylvania, where The Texas senator delivered a speech calling on Americans to join together to move the country forward. It is time for us to get up, shake it off and be who we were destined to be.

  5. Jay Hauck:

    Pro-ban supports would like to make it cut and dry, but it’s a very complicated issue, it’s an onion, and you have to peel away the layers.
