3. While this may be true, it serves Trump's interests for us to be focusing on that

instead of the dangerous policies/priorities of Pompeo and Bolton with whom she butted heads and lost.

Trump always smears people on their way out the door to diminish their credibility if/when they spill their guts about him.

Haley may indeed have acted very inappropriately. But the fact we are learning about it immediately upon her resignation indicates someone believes their own interests are served by pushing the story out. That someone is probably Trump or those closest to him.

12. And they did this even after she debased herself for Trump.

She went so far as to repeat his ridiculous lie that the UN was not laughing at Trump but with him, that they were laughing out of "respect" for Trump's "honesty." https://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_5bab7019e4b0f143d10ee8f4/amp

23. Agree - it is a distraction from something else

Trump is extremely adept in directing news traffic now. He throws Haley under the bus to distract from
- Boof Kavanaugh's first actions on supreme court
- Trump tax evasion scandal
- Russia investigation
- pick one

8. Why do I get the impression, that if she stepped down due to improprieties, that it goes

deeper than accepting free jet rides?

14. CREW is not a federal or congressional agency....

They are an independent watch dog group. There are dozens of these accross the spectrum of political beliefs. They all at one point or another "call" for an investigation.

That doesn't mean she is being investigated. It means there is a lot of smoke and somebody should be digging into it.

It is also the likely reason behind her decision. She wants to run for elected office again and wants this to die. That way when she runs it is instantly old, discredited news. It won't be either, but that will be their claim.

18. My first thought was has she been providing info to the New York Times?

Accepting free flights and just an ethics violation is a rather pedestrian accusation for Trump level corruption.

21. Mark Sanford was on MSNBC shortly after the group hug

and suggested something like that.

He did mentions something "like Pruitt" I admit, I did not listen that closely but am sure that the afternoon crowd will delve into it.

This could have influenced her and affected the U.S. policy at U.N.
