The Senate Armed Services Committee held a confirmation hearing for Air Force Gen. John E. Hyten to serve as vice chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Senators and the nominee addressed allegations of sexual assault against the general by Col. Kathryn Spletstoser, who attended the hearing. Gen. Hyten denied the accusations. Several senators noted that after reviewing the military investigation into the allegations and holding several closed-door executive sessions with the general and the accuser, they believed the general was being falsely accused. “The truth is Gen. Hyten is innocent of these charges,” said Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ), who recently disclosed she was a victim of sexual assault while serving in the military. Former Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson, who oversaw the investigation of the sexual assault misconduct allegations and cleared the general, introduced Gen. Hyten. “I accept that it is entirely possible that his accuser is a wounded soldier who believes what she is saying is true, even if its not,” said Wilson. “That possibility makes this whole situation very sad.” close
