Nikki Haley: Tillerson and Kelly tried to block Trump to 'save country'
The Guardian ^ | 11.10.19 | Edward Hellmore

Posted on 11/10/2019 12:06:21 PM PST by malach

Nikki Haley, the former US ambassador to the United Nations, has claimed former secretary of state Rex Tillerson and former White House chief of staff John Kelly tried to recruit her to work around Donald Trump in an effort to “save the country”.

Haley, who left the administration last year, makes the claim in a book, With All Due Respect, that will be published on Tuesday, the Washington Post reported.

In Haley’s telling, Tillerson told her that if Trump was left unchecked, people would die.

“Kelly and Tillerson confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren’t being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country,” Haley writes.

The pair told her that “it was their decisions, not the president’s, that were in the best interests of America” and “the president didn’t know what he was doing”.

I would have preferred the WaPo slanted as it is, IMO the Guardian is probably more slanted, but you can't get into the WaPo articles.

For Haley's own interpretation, watch this CBS video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHK5_MUiD-M The relevant interchange with Haley's interviewer starts at 4:24 minutes.

She says something simple and direct: if you don't like the president's behavior, get out but don't undermine him from the inside. That's not right. She's a breath of fresh air.

Weird coincidence, but I was just thinking about her today. She was definitely not an underminer, and defended Trump’s policies very vigorously in the UN. She left suddenly - to spend time with her family, LOL. But that may actually have been the reason. I think she realized what was going on with people like Tillerson and Kelly and the even deeper Deep State, and didn’t want to be caught up in it.

So, is she culpable, or did she tell the President and get the bastards fired? Both of them should hang.

Nobody reads them anyway.

This wasn’t Trump trashing, this was Trump defending by Haley. It was simply twiste around by the Guardian reporter. Watch the video.

the reason we have presidential elections every four years and limit terms to 8 years, as opposed to having a dictator or king, is exactly so the president ‘doesn’t know anything’. It’s fresh blood, fresh faces, new eyes and new perspectives from our elected presidents that moves America forward. Not the same old, same old, civil service plod along to get along don’t make waves mindset that pervades government. Tillerson and Kelly have been pickled so long in a system that inflates career employees, regardless of real ability, to some kind of hallowed status, they’ve forgotten that. So good riddance to them and anyone like them who believes only career people should run and serve as president.

I don’t think that’s as simple to do as you seem to think. She really may not have had enough to go to him. He seemed to be very fond of Kelly.

When was the last time we had a trial for the crime of sedition?

The Guardian is quoting Haley.
They are not making it up, this time.

Can’t believe they even printed this.

As for Haley, we could have used this little Gem some time ago,.... without having to WAIT FOR HER TO MAKE A PROFIT on it, in her blasted BOOK.
imho.

However, at the time, who could she dare report Treason to? The FBI was DIRTY, too to bottom. I suspect she did tell the POTUS, whether she reveals that or not.

Still, with Haley, we have to keep one eye open. She is an Ambitious one.
