United Nations, New York. Proving she has no fear of being fired by Donald Trump, “Nikki Haley” or Nimrata Randhawa has said she thinks additional federal scrutiny of the Trump administration is a good thing, in comments about the probes gearing up.
The independent investigation into possible ties between Russian efforts to interfere in last year’s election and associates of President Donald Trump is necessary, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley-Randhawa stated during a television news interview, “to put the matter to bed.”
“I think we absolutely need the investigation,” she told NBC’s “Today” show. “I think that all these questions need to be answered so that the administration can get back to work.”
The Department of Justice announced last week that former Robert Mueller had been appointed as a special prosecutor to oversee the Russia investigation, a move that the president took little time to characterize as “the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history.” But Haley-Randhawa, visiting Jordan on her first foreign trip as Trump’s representative at the UN, voiced support for Mueller’s appointment, despite Trump’s remarks against the idea.
Haley-Randhawa also responded to reports last week that Trump had shared highly sensitive intelligence with two top Russian diplomats during an Oval Office meeting earlier this month, information that had been provided by Israel and was considered so secret that even American allies were purportedly not told of it. Haley-Randhawa said she would work to reassure US partners in the Middle East that their secrets remain safe with the Trump administration.
