Former CIA Director Michael Hayden on Monday suggested that Sen. Tommy Tuberville be removed from the “human race” over his blockade of military confirmations. 

The shocking suggestion from the retired US intelligence official came in response to a question from a user on the social media platform X, who asked if Tuberville (R-Ala.) should be “removed from his committee.” 

“How about the human race?” Hayden replied.

Some on social media accused the former top CIA official of calling for Tuberville’s “assassination.”


Tuberville, on the Senate Armed Services Committee, has for months blocked bulk confirmations of hundreds of military officers for key leadership roles in protest of a Pentagon policy that pays for troops’ out-of-state travel for reproductive services — including abortion and in-vitro fertilization. 

Tuberville’s blockade prevents the Senate Armed Services Committee from quickly approving nominations by a unanimous vote, forcing Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to send some promotions to the full Senate floor for votes.
