Gen. John Hyten, Trump’s Joint Chiefs Nominee, Accused of Sexual Misconduct

HeadlineJul 12, 2019

An Air Force general nominated by President Trump to be the next vice chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is facing allegations of sexual misconduct. The Associated Press reports that an unnamed senior military officer accused General John Hyten of making a series of unwanted sexual advances and touching in 2017 while she was one of his aides. The officer says that when she rebuffed General Hyten’s advances, he tried to derail her military career. Unnamed Air Force officials told The Wall Street Journal that an internal investigation found no evidence of sexual misconduct by General Hyten. The Senate has yet to schedule a hearing for his confirmation.
