Haley's resignation letter is dated Oct 3, so before allegation of use of a private jet by CREW, and the day after Trump mocked Dr. Ford at a rally.
The other shoe still to drop on this one.

Haley was concerned about jumping ship after midterms should GOP lose House, I'm told. She did not want to look like she's abandoning Trump, when he's on the ropes. But she also didn't want to leave in middle of SCOTUS fight. Private sector may be next. Talk of SC Senate brewing.

#TheresaMay and Dominic Raab keep demanding “frictionless trade” with the EU after #Brexit
But they want to leave the #customsunion and the #singlemarket – the very tools that enable frictionless trade!

The Royal with no Royal Duties, Eugenie, is already presenting taxpayers with a £2 million bill for her wedding, but you can now add another £250,000 for the after-party clean up. That’s a quarter of a million pounds. This is absolutely outrageous, they are taking the piss now.
