Michael Hayden: I Now Have 'Open Mind' on Special Prosecutor

By    |   Sunday, 14 May 2017 02:49 PM

Former CIA Director Michael Hayden said he "really dislikes special structures, special prosecutors," but the White House events this week have changed his mind.

"After the events of the past week I really have an open mind as to whether or not we need some extraordinary structure," Hayden told Sunday's "Fareed Zakaria GPS." "Not just so we can get to the criminal resolution – was there or was there not a crime – but so that the American people fully understand the totality of what happened here."

Hayden's past criticisms of special prosecutors include they take "too long," they dive "too deep," the scan is "too broad," and "they cost too much," and they spiral out and
"lose control" and "lose purpose," he told the panel.

This White House's actions apparently warrant the costly, deeper dive, Hayden suggested.

"It appears as if the administration is doing everything it can to either slow or discredit the various investigations with regard to Russian interference in the American presidential election," Hayden said. "So, I think that’s a fair assessment as to what’s going on."
