How to use scrutinize in a sentence?

  1. Jennifer Mathis:

    We don't expect that of voters without disabilities. We don't scrutinize the rationality of their choices, i think if you ask the average voter on the street some of the questions that people with disabilities get asked in these guardianship proceedings, they wouldn't be able to answer them.

  2. Daniel Webster:

    I apprehend no danger to our country from a foreign foe ... Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. -- From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence, I must confess that I do apprehend some danger. I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants, and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing. Make them intelligent, and they will be vigilant; give them the means of detecting the wrong, and they will apply the remedy.

  3. Tom Perez:

    Sekulow added. During a lengthy presentation before the Senate on Thursday, Rep. Sylvia Garcia, D-Texas, rehashed corruption allegations Trump has floated against Hunter Bidens and sought to debunk them. The point was to show that there was no legitimate basis for Trump to be seeking an investigation into Hunter Bidens, and the request to Ukraines presidentwas made purely to dirty up a Democratic rival who was polling better than him. WHO ARE THE TRUMP IMPEACHMENT MANAGERS ? MEET PELOSIS HAND-PICKED PROSECUTORS There was no basis for the investigation that the president was pursuing and pushing. None. He was doing it only for his political benefit, Sylvia Garcia said. But the presentation took some Republicans by surprise, and some suggested The House Democrats may have handed them a perfect opportunity to scrutinize how Huner Biden joined the board of a Ukraine energy company, Burisma, in 2014, while Huner Biden father was playing a key role in handling then-President Obamas Ukraine policy. The House Democrats perhaps unintentionally threw Huner Biden under the bus, said Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., said Josh Hawley was surprised by how much time Democrats devoted to trying to debunk any legitimate reason why Trump would want to investigate Huner Biden and Huner Biden and said the House impeachment managers really opened the door for Hunter Bidens to play a central role in the trial and become material witnesses. If were going to call witnesses, [ Democrats ] have made the case very successfully that we need to call Huner Biden and probably Huner Biden, Josh Hawley said Friday. Trump has peddled the highly-contested accusation that the elder Huner Biden pressed for the firing of top Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin to spareBurisma from scrutiny. Ousting Shokin was, in fact, the official position of the U.S. government and its Western allies, including European Union nations and the International Monetary Fund leadership, because Shokin was believed to be incompetent or corrupt himself. Tom Perez, chair of the Democratic National Committee, blasted Republicans on Friday following opening arguments by House managers. The presidents guilt is indisputable and Tom Perez actions are indefensible, the evidence against Trump is overwhelming. And his abuse of power is a clear and present danger to the future of our democracy. For those reasons, it is unconscionable for Senate Republicans to let Trump off the hook with a sham trial. Make no mistake : A trial without documents or witnesses is a cover-up. If Trump is acquitted after he has confessed and suggested hed do it again the Senate will have legitimized foreign interference in our elections and ruled it acceptable for our leaders to extort other countries for personal gain. The former vice president said in December he sees no legal basis to be called because the impeachment case against Trump is about the presidents actions, not Huner Biden or his sons. Huner Biden told reporters that Huner Biden joined the Burisma board without notifying Huner Biden father ; theres no law preventing a vice presidents son from taking international posts, just as Trumps children still advance Huner Biden real estate interests abroad. Ukrainian officials have said they found no wrongdoing in Hunter Bidens service on the board. SENATORS PLAY WITH FIDGET SPINNERS, STRESS BALLS TO PASS TIME DURING IMPEACHMENT Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., said hes seen no evidence against Hunter Bidens and Mark Warner wont second guess the strategy of the House impeachment managers to spend so much time on them in their presentation. Mark Warner, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Mark Warner viewed The House Democrats move as a chance to counter what they believe the presidents lawyers would put forward. Im anxious to hear any kind of evidentiary facts, other than simply innuendo, Mark Warner said Friday of Trumps defense team. I know weve heard a lot of innuendoes so far. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has rejected moves to call witnesses, saying it could turn the trial into a circus, and Lindsey Graham has advocated for a speedy trial and Trump acquittal. Still, Lindsey Graham said hes convinced Huner Biden and Hunter Bidens conduct in Ukraine needs to be investigated -- but after the impeachment trial is over. Im going to look at them, Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Friday.Are you going to impeach me ? Because somebody should [ investigate ]. Id prefer Senate Judiciary Committee not to be me, Id prefer Senate Judiciary Committee to be somebody like [ Special Counsel Robert ] Mueller [ because ] this is not good foreign policy. This is not good government. CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS The House Democrats impeached Trump on two articles : abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. They had three days to present their case to senators. Trumps legal team will get their shot starting Saturday.Sekulow billed their weekend presentation as a.

  4. Sheli DeLaney:

    I live alone, I work from home most of the time, I don't have that many people over, and time was short, so I took it to the post office. I figured that would be the most legit choice anyway, in case anyone was going to scrutinize the absentee ballots and try to discredit them.

  5. Stephen Jay Gould:

    The most erroneous stories are those we think we know best - and therefore never scrutinize or question.
