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.

    Niki Haleys gresognation was planned a long time ago. Probably has nothing to do with plane rides. For that matter. How many plane rides did the tranny take and have family, friends, and staff on vacation to high end places thst was paid by American taxpayers. Why not look into all the golf games gifts odumass had. Wasnt it 35 plus. Look into the real culprits of ethics. Dumokraut liberals srill trying to find some wrong doing and not even looking at their own dirty deeds. They are the stinky smelly vomit of America. Someone needs to clean it up.

    Everyone I’ve ever heard from/ know from S. Carolina where she was governor hated her. She’s a warmonger. She’s rude and misinformed. Hates Putin and al Assad. Believes Assad has gassed his own people when he has NOT…it was the White Helmets, who are al Quada/ ISIS/ Taliban in disguise, who WE have been giving millions to. I am glad she’s gone. Don’t believe me? Follow vanessa beeley, or John Pilger, or the Corbett Report on youtube.. they tell the truth about Syria. There’s another journalist from Canada.. can’t think of her first name but her last name is Bartlett.. she too is truthful about Syria. People need to wake up and open their eyes about the lies we’ve been fed about Assad and about Syria. Good riddance to this woman!!
