Nikki Haley: ‘We Absolutely Need’ Mueller’s Russia Probe

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Monday praised the appointment of Robert Mueller as a special counsel overseeing the FBI’s Russia probe, sharply differing from the way President Trump reacted to the news. “I think we absolutely need the investigation,” Haley told NBC’s Today show while visiting Jordan on a foreign trip. “I think that all these questions need to be answered so that the administration can get back to work.” The White House, however, blasted Mueller’s appointment last week, with Trump himself claiming it to be part of “the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history.”
