Nikki Haley: 'Russia Waged War on the US to Install My Boss to the White House'

Nikki Haley says she may not be the UN Ambassador right now had Russia not engaged in "warfare" against her country on behalf of Trump

Speaking at a panel alongside war criminals Madeline Albright and Condoleezza Rice Trump's Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley said that Russia's alleged (and bogus) interference in American elections was "warfare":

"When a country can come interfere in another country's elections, that is warfare. It really is because you're making sure the democracy shifts from what the people want to giving out that misinformation. And we didn't just see it here. ... They are doing this everywhere and this is their new weapon of choice."

OK, so Nikki Haley believes Russian interference was both real and a form of warfare. So far so good, but what does that say about her?

She was appointed to her present position by a man who was helped to the White House with a form of Russian "warfare".

Is she saying she wouldn't be the US Ambassador to the UN had Russia not waged war on the US? And having benefited from Russian war against her country wouldn't the only honorable thing left for her be to resign?

And also another thing...isn't Trump famous for firing people? Flynn, Spicer, Scarammuci, Bannon, Priebus and so on were all kicked out before they had a chance to decorate their office. Why does he tolerate Haley undermining him by fanning the flames of the Russiagate conspiracy theory? It's past time Haley "resigned".
