How to use wrongdoing in a sentence?

  1. White House:

    Some Republicans are hoping lawmakers will soon wrap up investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election that have dragged on for most of the year. But with new details in the probe emerging almost daily, that seems unlikely. Three congressional committees are investigating Russian interference and whether President Donald Trump’s campaign was in any way involved. The panels have obtained thousands of pages of documents from Trump’s campaign and other officials, and have done dozens of interviews. The probes are separate from special counselRobert Mueller’s investigation. Special CounselRobert Mueller can prosecute for criminal activity, while Congress can only lay out findings, publicize any perceived wrongdoing and pass legislation to try to keep problems from happening again. If any committee finds evidence of criminal activity, it must refer the matter to Special CounselRobert Mueller. All three committees have focused on a June 2016 meeting that President Donald Trump campaign officials held in Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer and others.

  2. Mahathir Mohamad:

    He, in fact, has hidden evidence of wrongdoing, and that is wrong in law. We have to do what is permitted by the laws of this country.

  3. Elliot Williams:

    A pardon is actually in effect an acknowledgment that wrongdoing or a chargeable crime has happened. So he wouldn't just be looking guilty, he'd be acknowledging that he committed an offense.

  4. Chaka Fattah:

    I'll stand by my previous statement that I've never been involved in wrongdoing, any unlawful activity, any misappropriation of federal funds, and I think that there's a lot for us to digest once we see the indictment.

  5. Alfonso Sabella:

    I just hope that the progress made by this city council in fighting wrongdoing does not come to a sudden halt.
