U.S AMBASSADOR TO THE U.N RESIGNS.

The United States Ambassador to the United Nations has resigned.

I cannot confirm if what I’m about to share is connected to Haley’s resignation but, yesterday, I learnt that a U.S federal government watchdog had asked the State Department to investigate whether Haley broke any regulations by accepting seven flights on private jets from three South Carolina executives last year.

According to Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, four out of the seven flights Haley took on a plane belonging to Jimmy Gibbs, chief executive of Gibbs International in Spartanburg, were alone worth up to $24,000 based on publicly reported operating costs of a private jet.

“Ambassador Haley should have been conscious of the appearance concerns surrounding her acceptance of gifts of private luxury air travel at a time when her colleagues in the administration were making news with their own lavish air travel,” CREW wrote. They also questioned how Haley values the flights on “luxury private aircraft,” most of which also included her husband, Michael.

They asked the State Department inspector general to examine whether her friends’ businesses paid for all or some of the flight costs and if the companies or executives could benefit from Haley’s role at the United Nations or her position in the Trump administration.
