Harvard Hires Convicted Intelligence Leaker Chelsea Manning as Visiting Fellow

Former Top CIA Official Resigns Harvard Post Over Hiring Of Chelsea Manning

In leaving his role with Harvard's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Morell further explained in his letter that he felt he had an obligation to defend sensitive national security information and that the school's decision to appoint Manning as a fellow would "assist in her long-standing effort to legitimize the criminal path that she took to prominence". "All money they receive from USA govt should be cut off. Now".

Michael Morell, the former acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, announced on Thursday that he was resigning from a fellowship at Harvard because he couldn't stand the thought of the school also offering an unrelated fellowship to Chelsea Manning.

"Unfortunately, I can not be part of an organization-The Kennedy School-that honors a convicted felon and leaker of classified information", Morell wrote, going on to write that Manning was found guilty of "17 serious crimes, including six counts of espionage" with her leaks to WikiLeaks.

Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican nominee for president, condemned Harvard for giving a role to Manning.

Manning on Thursday reacted to Morell's resignation with a one-word Tweet: "good".

The Kennedy School of Government has not responded to RT's request for comment. "As a trans woman, she advocates for queer and transgender rights as @xychelsea on Twitter". Ms. Manning was found guilty of 17 serious crimes, including six counts of espionage, for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents to Wikileaks, an entity that CIA Director Mike Pompeo says operates like an adversarial foreign intelligence service. Morell does not acknowledge that Manning served several years of her sentence and that it was commuted. House Speaker Paul Ryan called the move "just outrageous".

She was released earlier this year after almost seven years of confinement, and named a fellow by the Kennedy School's Institute of Politics (IOP) on September 13 along with former White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
