Nikki Haley on Explosive Michael Flynn Case: 'Someone Needs to Pay'
The internal FBI documents revealed a plot to trap Flynn by top bureau officials
Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley weighed on the recently unsealed documents revealing misconduct with FBI officials during the investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
During an appearance on Fox News, Haley said "someone needs to pay" when asked about the case.
"Laura, this upsets me so much because when I was at the United Nations, this is what we looked at other countries doing ... corrupt measures to frame people and to hide things," Haley said.
"I can't believe this happened in the United States of America."
The internal FBI documents revealed a plot to trap Flynn by top bureau officials.
FBI's top brass discussed their motivations for interviewing Flynn, as revealed in the notes.
Haley said the FBI needs to "step up" if the American public is to trust them again.
"This should send a chill up every American spine, whether you're Republican or Democrat," she said.
"The idea that here was a man who was in transition with a new administration and the FBI didn't follow protocols and went so far as to go and question him with a motive in mind, the idea that you would do that to an innocent American is terrible."
"And I will tell you that I think that questions need to be asked," Hayley added.

"The FBI needs to step up and let us know how the American people will ever trust them again."
"Everybody that was involved from top to bottom should have to pay, because I'm looking at James Comey," she continued.
"He has made millions [of dollars] over this time," Haley said.
"General Flynn has literally lost everything. It's wrong. It's corrupt, and someone needs to pay."
President Donald Trump later blasted Comey about the case:
"DIRTY COP JAMES COMEY GOT CAUGHT!" Trump tweeted.
On Wednesday night, Flynn supporters were overjoyed by the news of his exoneration.
The former general reacted with a video post on Twitter, simply featuring the American flag waving in the wind.
