Former CIA Chief Michael Hayden Calls For Assassination Of Sen. Tuberville


Former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director Michael Hayden suggested Alabama Republican Sen. Tommy Tuberville be “removed” from the “human race” Monday after an outbreak of conflict in the Middle East.

Hayden responded to a Democrat influencer on X, formerly known as Twitter, who asked whether the Alabama lawmaker maintaining a months-long hold on military promotions should be removed from the Armed Services Committee. Tuberville’s hold is a protest against the military’s endorsement of abortion and embrace of far-left standards of social justice.

“Should Tommy Tuberville be removed from his committee?” asked Nathalie Jacoby.

“How about the human race?” Hayden suggested.

The former CIA chief, who previously characterized the Republican Party as the most “dangerous” force on Earth, doubled down on his remarks about Sen. Tuberville Tuesday.

“I was surprised to wake up this morning and discover that MAGAnuts had lost their minds over my suggestion that ‘Coach’ Tuberville not be considered a member of the human race,” he wrote on X. “I stand by that view.”

Hayden, who just more than a decade ago was authorizing drone strikes to gun down violent extremists, now serves on the advisory board of NewsGuard, a left-wing misinformation group that claims to operate as a disinformation watchdog.

NewsGuard is a popular pro-censorship browser extension being deployed in schools to indoctrinate students on acceptable news sources. The service consistently gives failing grades to conservative publications, while corporate outlets that routinely botch major stories, like the Hunter Biden laptop story, have perfect credibility ratings. Hayden also promoted the Russian collusion hoax to indict former President Donald Trump as an agent of the Kremlin.

NewsGuard did not respond to The Federalist’s request for comment.

Hayden was among the more than 50 former intelligence officials who signed a joint letter published with Politico to dismiss the Hunter Biden laptop as Russian disinformation in October 2020 despite early confirmation of the computer’s legitimacy. Even after Politico conceded the laptop’s authenticity 11 months after the New York Post’s blockbuster reporting, Hayden doubled down on the false claim that its contents are instruments of a Russian disinformation campaign.

The 9/11-era intelligence chief has also previously mused about Trump’s execution over the handling of classified documents, claimed the Republican Party wouldn’t survive a second Trump term, and defended key players in the Russia hoax.

Hayden’s latest comments on Tuberville follow former 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s suggestion last week to “deprogram” Trump supporters.

“Maybe there needs to be a formal deprogramming of the cult members,” Clinton said in an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour. “Something needs to happen.”
