Chelsea Manning, the transgender U.S. Army soldier who served seven years in prison for leaking classified data, and former White House spokesman Sean Spicer have been named visiting fellows at Harvard University, the school said Wednesday.

"Broadening the range and depth of opportunity for students to hear from and engage with experts, leaders and policy-shapers is a cornerstone of the Institute of Politics," said Bill Delhunt, acting director of the institute at the Harvard Kennedy School. "We welcome the breadth of thought-provoking viewpoints on race, gender, politics and the media."

Former CIA official leaves Harvard after Chelsea Manning named fellow

  Former CIA official leaves Harvard after Chelsea Manning named fellow WASHINGTON — A former top CIA official has abruptly resigned as a senior fellow at Harvard University over the school’s decision to hire Chelsea Manning, who was convicted of leaking classified information. Mike Morell, former deputy director and acting director of the CIA, sent a resignation letter Thursday to the dean of Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. Morell, who was a non-resident senior fellow, says he cannot be part of an organization that ‘‘honors a convicted felon and leaker of classified information.’’ He says leaking classified information is ‘‘disgraceful.’’Manning has been invited to be a visiting fellow at the Kennedy school’s Institute of Politics.

Manning, 29, was released in May from a U.S. military prison in Kansas where she had been serving time for passing secrets to the WikiLeaks website in the biggest breach of classified data in the history of the United States.

Spicer served as President Donald Trump's first press secretary, bursting onto the public stage in January with a scolding rant against reporters, accusing them of lowballing the size of the Inauguration Day crowd. He was frequently parodied on "Saturday Night Live."

A former functionary for the Republican National Committee, Spicer left the White House this summer, amid a shuffling of staff that included the brief tenure of former hedge fund executive Anthony Scaramucci as communications director.
