Former Director of the National Security Agency is now calling for the demise of Republican Sen. Tommy Tuberville.
- Former CIA Director and retired Gen. Michael Hayden is calling for the downfall of Republican Senator Tommy Tuberville.
- Currently a professor at George Mason University-Schar School of Policy and Government, Hayden responded to a tweet asking if Tuberville should be “removed from his committee.”
- “How about the human race?” Hayden said.
- Editor in chief of the Federalist, Mollie Hemingway, pointed out that the former director also once supported the Hunter Biden laptop scandal.
- “Former CIA Director Michael Hayden calls for the assassination of Sen. Tuberville because the senator is performing desperately needed oversight of the U.S. Military. Hayden, a renowned civil liberties violator, promoted the Biden laptop coverup and the Russia collusion scam,” Hemingway said.
CONSERVATIVE X ACCOUNT CYNICAL PUBLIUS ON FORMER CIA DIRECTOR MICHAEL HAYDEN:
“And to think we once foolishly trusted you with our nation’s secrets. You are an unholy abomination,” the account tweeted.
- In August 2022, Hayden agreed with a statement by Financial Times columnist Edward Luce that Republicans are the most “dangerous” group he’s ever seen.
- Hayden has been in the military or government since 1967 and allegedly believes Republicans are more dangerous than ISIS, Al Qaeda, the Chinese Communist Party, Taliban, Boko Haram, Al-Shabaab, and more.
- Luce tweeted at the time that he’s “covered extremism and violent ideologies around the world over my career” but has “never come across a political force more nihilistic, dangerous [and] contemptible than today’s Republicans.”
- “I agree. And I was the CIA Director.” Hayden added to the statement.
- Hayden, nominated by George W. Bush and having served under President Barack Obama briefly, presumably exemplifies the kinds of character-laden people being hired at that agency.
- Bloomberg News in 2014 debated whether or not Hayden was the “nation’s biggest liar” or an “unassailable patriot” and suggested he may have lied to Congress during his 2007 testimony about the CIA’s ‘enhanced interrogation program.’
- He was also a fierce defender of the NSA’s spying programs, which were famously uncovered by Edward Snowden during the Obama administration.
