'The Five' Blasts Harvard Over Chelsea Manning: 'Only Accomplishment Was Putting Americans in Harm's Way'
UPDATE: The dean of Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government has announced that the school has withdrawn its invitation to convicted WikiLeaks leaker Chelsea Manning to serve as a visiting fellow after a strong backlash.
"The Five" discussed Harvard University offering disgraced former soldier Chelsea Manning a fellowship at their Massachusetts institution.
After the news broke, current CIA Director Mike Pompeo bowed out of a speaking engagement and former CIA Director Mike Morell resigned his fellowship.
"It's very controversial, depending on where you're going to go speak," Kimberly Guilfoyle said of the directors' decisions.
Jesse Watters said he would no longer accept any future honorific titles or engagements from Harvard.
"They hire these people for PR reasons," he said of Manning, who was court-martialed for disclosing classified information to WikiLeaks.
Greg Gutfeld called Harvard's decision "sad and disgusting."
"What are Manning's accomplishments besides putting Americans in harm's way?" he asked.
Dana Perino said that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) called for Harvard to stop receiving federal funds.
