Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley thinks "we should always protect whistleblowers."

In an interview on CNN Thursday, Haley conceded she was "disagreeing" with President Donald Trump and some congressional Republicans who want the anonymous Ukraine whistleblower to be identified.

"I mean, I believe in whistleblower laws," she told CNN. "I think you have to protect a whistleblower, and then I think, in turn, the whistleblower has to abide by those laws and the fact that they don't allow any sort of partisan leaking or anything like that to have happen.

"We don't know that that's happened either, but until then, I do think we should always protect whistleblowers," she said.

The whistleblower's complaint alleges Trump abused his official powers "to solicit interference" from Ukraine in the 2020 election and that the White House took steps to cover it up. Trump has denied any wrongdoing.

Haley said it was "really hard" to see where the president's actions rise "to the level of impeachment," and defended the White House's refusal to cooperate with impeachment investigators, calling the process a series of "political games back and forth."
