Hastings died in a car accident in late June in Los Angeles. Due to the nature of his reporting on issues of national security and the increased tension between the government and journalists, Hastings' death fueled wild conspiracy theories.
"There have been, as there always are in these situations, wild conspiracy theories that he was chasing some hot story, maybe connected to that, his late night car crash in Los Angeles. Other theories, too. Do you subscribe to any of this?" Morgan asked.
"I have no doubt that he was pursuing a hot story. He always had at least five hot stories going — that was Michael," Jordan said. "Right now, the LAPD still has an active investigation. I don't really have anything to add. My gut here is that it was just a really tragic accident and I'm very unlucky and the world is very unlucky."
Jordan added that Hastings' story on CIA director John Brennan will be published in an upcoming issue of Rolling Stone.
Though Jordan's interview with Morgan was her first interview appearance since Hastings' death, she did respond to an insensitive tweet Fox News' Geraldo Rivera sent about her late husband. Following Hastings' death, Rivera tweeted that it was "tragic" but it was "hard to forget he destroyed career of 1 of our best fighting generals."
"You are a sick bastard," Jordan tweeted at Rivera. "To atone, make a donation to the Andi Foundation in Michael's memory."
