Nikki Haley faced a major choice.
Haley chose to side with Joe Biden’s weaponized Department of Justice and against Donald Trump and the conservative base.
And Nikki Haley had Jack Smith jumping for joy after she made this promise.
During a CNN town hall event, left-wing activist Jake Tapper confronted Haley about if she were president, would she pre-emptively pardon Donald Trump to end the sham show trials Jack Smith and the Biden Justice Department set in motion?
Haley said she would let the kangaroo courts against Trump play out and let a Democrat judge and all-Democrat jury hand down a guilty verdict against Trump.
“No. I think everything needs to play out. I think it’s important that that happens and I honestly think President Trump would want that to happen. If he wants to defend himself and prove that he has been treated, you know, the wrong way or whether it’s political, I think he would want to fight for that. You know, you only want to talk about a pardon after someone has been convicted, so I would assume that we’d let that play out and I would think he would want that to play out,” Haley stated.
“If he were convicted, would you then pardon him?” Tapper asked.
Haley said she would only pardon Trump following a conviction, which due to the rigged nature of the trials was all but assured.
“I said I would pardon him with the simple reason of, you know, when you talk about a pardon, someone’s already been found guilty, but for me, the last thing we need is an 80-year-old president sitting in jail because that’s just going to further divide our country,” Haley responded.
Haley claimed a pardon would make the Trump issue go away.
“This is no longer about whether he’s innocent or guilty, this is about the fact how do we bring the country back together, and I am determined to make sure all of this division, all of this chaos goes away, and I think a pardon for him would make all of that go away and I think it would be healing for the country,” Haley continued.
Haley’s answer only served to enrage conservatives.
This answer by Haley showed that she viewed the baseless charges Smith brought against Trump conjuring up untested legal theories as legitimate, but that she was also not willing to step in and end the weaponization of the government against conservatives.
The enduring criticism of Nikki Haley is that she’s weak in the face of media and Democrat criticism.
On the remote possibility Haley ever became president she wouldn’t immediately shut down the witch hunts against Trump because she fears blowback from Democrats in Congress and the press.
