United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley’s abrupt Tuesday resignation came one day after an ethics watchdog group requested a State Department inspector general investigation into her acceptance of seven free flights aboard private jets from a trio of South Carolina businessmen.

Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, listed the flights on her 2017 financial disclosure and asserted that each qualified for an exception based on her personal relationship with the businessmen. But the group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, said in its complaint that Haley’s financial disclosure did not provide enough information to make the assertion that the flights between New York, Washington, DC, and three South Carolina cities qualified for the exemption.

The article goes on to state the following:

Those flights were likely worth tens of thousands of dollars, CREW suggested.

“Whether the exception applies depends partly on whether the three businessmen were the only sources of the gifts; if business entities were sources of the gifts, the exception was inapplicable,” CREW wrote. “Federal ethics regulations prohibit employees from soliciting or accepting gifts given because of the employee’s official position.”

The three businessmen who provided the flights to Haley and her husband were Jimmy Gibbs, CEO of Gibbs International, Smyth McKissick, and Mikee Johnson. The latter two are CEOs of private companies in South Carolina.

  1. Mark Sanford is the last person who has the right to question any human being’s integrity. What is not reported is the fact Haley informed President Trump six months ago that she would be resigning.

  2. I am glad she is resigning. More draining of the swamp. Don’t replace her and kick the U.N. out of the U.S.

    • Why do you think Ms. Haley is part of the swamp ? She was the best U.S. ambassador to the UN we ever had, and she always had our country first.

  3. Let’s not just hold Haley to these standards, let’s investigate all the politicians, especially the dems since they are the most corrupt in history.

  4. President Trymp said he is hoping to have her on his staff in the future in some capacity. She is NOT part of the swamp! She will be helping in campaigning his 2020 win for another Presidential term.
