Nikki Haley on Flynn Docs “Letting Gen. Flynn off is not enough. People need to pay for this”

Thursday morning, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley reacted to the new documents related to the FBI’s treatment of General Michael Flynn. 

Haley tweeted:

There is so much to unpack with the new info on Gen. Flynn. The most upsetting is how calculated it was. Letting Gen. Flynn off is not enough. People need to pay for this and the FBI needs to answer to how the public can have confidence that it will never happen again. Shameful.

Per WashingtonExaminer, the unsealed records showed FBI officials discussing the possibility of prosecuting Flynn, Trump’s onetime national security adviser, for lying about communications with Russians.

“I agreed yesterday that we shouldn’t show Flynn [REDACTED] if he didn’t admit,” but “I thought about it last night and I believe we should rethink this,” an FBI official wrote. “What is our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?”

Haley was joined in her outrage by many other conservative news personalities immediately following the release of the document.

“I’ve been in D.C. most of my life — in and around government and family work for the government,” Tucker Carlson said on his Fox News program Wednesday evening. “The idea that our top law enforcement agency would set someone up like this, so boldly. … I find that really shocking.”

“This is just one of the most corrupt things I’ve ever seen in my life and one of the scariest,” he added. “How is this not a crime?”
