請教come to/given the nature...

小弟讀美聯社關於海陸上將艾倫退休的新聞,歐巴馬在聲明中盛讚艾倫"是個最優秀的將領之一,真正的愛國者,and a man I have come to respect greatly."

1.請問這裡come to的意思

雖然五角大廈還給艾倫清白,白宮宣布將再次提名艾倫,但不清楚艾倫是否會選擇出席參議院的confirmation聽證會,given the nature of email probe.艾倫被指控與一位佛州名媛有不適當的電子郵件來往而被國防部調查.

2.given the nature of email probe是何意?

3.Allen relinquished command Feb. 10 to a fellow Marine general, Joseph Dunford.請問這句的意思?

懇請賢拜點撥一二,不勝感激.

    1. come to V: 逐漸會V;最後會 V

    最常見的 come to realize 終於了解;逐漸明瞭

    放在 come to respect 也有上述之意,但是中文的尊敬,就是尊敬,沒有什麼逐漸尊敬。

    and a man I have come to respect greatly.

    而且是位我極為尊敬的人。

    2. given = granted as a supposition 既然... (那麼還要...?)

    given the nature of email probe 既然這電子郵件調查事件的性質(蠻負面的,那麼還要去參加聽證會麽?)

    3. Allen relinquished command Feb. 10 to a fellow Marine general, Joseph Dunford.

    Allen 在2月10號卸下職務交給同僚的海軍將軍,(姓名是) Joseph Dunford.
