Hayden, 73, served as director of the Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency during the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations. He retired from the CIA in 2009.
Hayden has been a vocal critic of Donald Trump’s campaign and presidency. Earlier this year, after Trump decided to revoke the security clearance of former CIA director John Brennan, Hayden was one of several former intelligence leaders to sign a statement in opposition. Criticizing the president for crossing a line, he quickly became one of the individuals whose security clearance Trump threatened to review.
