Ex-acting CIA director Michael Morell has resigned from his post at Harvard over its hiring of Chelsea Manning.
Announcing his resignation as a senior fellow, Mr Morell said he could not be part of an institution “that honours a convicted felon and leaker of classified information”.
Harvard later withdrew Ms Manning’s invitation as a visiting fellow, but said she remained welcome as a speaker.
She was convicted of espionage in 2013 after leaking secret documents.
Manning is a traitor and should be treated as such.
