From The Washington Post:
There have been moments in former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley’s political career when she has taken a bold moral stand on a politically fraught subject.
Monday evening was not such a moment.
“The actions of the president post-Election Day were not great. What happened on January 6 was not great,” Haley said in an interview on Fox News, referring to the violent storming of the U.S. Capitol by a mob of then-President Donald Trump’s supporters. But, she added, impeaching him for inciting that mob, including in a rally that morning, was a “political game.”
“They beat him up before he got into office. They’re beating him up after he leaves office,” she said. “I mean, at some point — I mean, give the man a break. I mean, move on.”
