TAPPER: "Retired admiral William Mcraven who oversaw the raid that bin Laden was killed wrote “The Washington Post” this morning, I would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well so I could add to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency. You have worst of all divided us as a nation. Would you be similarly honored to have President Trump revoke your security clearance?"
HAYDEN: "To be included in that group, sure.
