To sell someone out - English idiomatic expressions # 34

Today we have a very good expression ‘to sell someone out’. And it’s mean to betray someone. For example, police have caught three men and one person sold diamond so police ask to one person. “Did you steal the diamond?” and person A say “No”. Then police ask to second person and then third one and all person says “No”. So in this situation everyone person selling the other person out; they are making a tough situation for other person; they are using the other person. But keep that in mind if husband cheats his wife, in that situation we will not use this expression. if you still don’t understand, watch this video.
