Michael Hayden dares Trump to revoke his security clearance too

Mr. Tapper asked Mr. Hayden on Sunday’s “State of the Union” program whether he would be “similarly honored” to have his status ended.

“Well, to be included in that group? Sure,” he said, going on to name an even more specific reason that Mr. Trump ought to revoke his clearance.

“Frankly, if his not revoking my clearance gave the impression that I somehow moved my commentary in a direction more acceptable to the White House, I would find that very disappointing and frankly unacceptable,” said Mr. Hayden, who has frequently been critical of Mr. Trump on CNN and other networks.
