How to use short circuit in a sentence?

  1. James Comeys:

    We'll fight about guns. We'll fight about taxes. We'll fight about all those other things down the road, but you can not have, as President of the United States, someone who does not reflect the values that I believe Republicans treasure and Democrats treasure and independents treasure. United States is the core of this country. United States's United States. And so impeachment, in a way, would short-circuit that.

  2. Josh Earnest:

    No one’s allowed to short-circuit this system.

  3. James Comey:

    People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values, and so impeachment, in a way, would short circuit that.

  4. San Francisco:

    These two recalls have one thing in common : they are attempts to short-circuit the democratic process with big money, across the country, right-wingers are attacking school boards ; over half of the signatures to qualify for the ballot were gathered by people paid as much as $ 22 per signature, many of whom came from out of state.

  5. Emily Hampsten:

    The minute Sen. Durbin heard that he had offended Sen. Tim Scott, he sought him out on the floor and apologized, what Sen. Durbin took issue with in his floor speech was not Sen. Scott's bill, but that the Senate Majority Leader would short circuit this critical debate and fail to make the changes needed to prevent the killing of Black Americans by police officers. Addressing systemic racism and changing policing in America requires and deserves more than one Judiciary hearing, one floor vote, one conversation.
