    (CNN)Former Republican Secretary of State Colin Powell said Tuesday he'll vote for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, a high-profile snub of his party's standard-bearer, Donald Trump. Powell, who also served in the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations, backed President Barack Obama in both the 2008 and 2012 campaigns. He announced his plan to a Long Island group during a luncheon. The announcement was confirmed by Powell's chief of staff, Peggy Cifrino. Aides informed Clinton of Powell's support after her early voting rally Tuesday afternoon in Florida. She is grateful for his support, one aide said. Later, Clinton's campaign tweeted, "Proud...

    Colin L. Powell, the Republican former secretary of state, said on Tuesday that he planned to vote for Hillary Clinton for president as he condemned her rival, Donald J. Trump, at an event on Long Island. Speaking before the Long Island Association, a trade group that frequently hosts political figures, Mr. Powell divulged his intentions come Election Day. “I am voting for Hillary Clinton,” he said, according to Matthew Cohen, a spokesman for the association. Mr. Powell went on to praise Mrs. Clinton for her skills as a leader and her experience. Paule Pachter, a Long Island Association board member,...

    WASHINGTON – Using the war in Libya and the conflict in Syria as examples, former Secretary of State Colin Powell cautioned against U.S.-backed regime changes. Touching upon the debate surrounding U.S. immigration from the Middle East, Powell said Muslims should not be “singled out” as threats. “You better be careful because – and I have considerable experience with this – just taking out the regime doesn’t necessarily fix the problem. ......

    This campaign season never fails to disappoint, not even for a day. Despite incredibly strong denials to the contrary, last weekend it was proved for all the world to see that there is something wrong with Hillary Clinton. The campaign officially calls it pneumonia, but the public record clearly shows “something else going on.” Another doozy came later in the week, when Colin Powell’s hacked emails were released. He had some choice words for Trump, Hillary, and especially Bill Clinton. What did we learn? Finally, the Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte ordered that U.S. military advisers leave the Philippines.

Powell sent the email, one of thousands leaked by the organization DC Leaks, to private equity tycoon Jeffrey Leeds Aug. 18, 2015, a few days after Clinton’s private email server was seized by the FBI. Leeds remarked that Clinton’s email scandal was getting “worse every day” and that she “may be in serious trouble.” Powell responded saying Clinton’s problems were her own fault. “Everything HRC touches she kind of screws...

    As new emails emerge, Hillary’s defense is that the general made her do it. When Bill and Hillary Clinton get caught for bad behavior, they follow a familiar pattern. First deny, then call it old news, then roll out the attack machine of media and political allies to trash whoever needs to be collateral damage to save them. The private email-Clinton Foundation saga is now in phase three, and no less than Colin Powell has been drafted as roadkill. The Powell-made-Hillary-do-it defense emerged late last week in two parts.

But the most telling issue is Hillary’s direct run-in with national security.

    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has claimed that she told the truth to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) when she was interviewed last month about her private email server and her mis-handling of classified information. However, discrepancies between what she told the FBI that former Secretary of State Colin Powell told her about using private email while in office, and what Powell himself says that he told her, indicate that she did not tell the truth to the FBI. For months, Democrats have tried to deflect controversy over Clinton’s private email server, and her destruction of emails her attorneys...

    The Romanian hacker known as “Guccifer” who hacked into Hillary Clinton’s private email server told Fox News that “it was easy.” “For me, it was easy … easy for me, for everybody,” Marcel Lehel Lazar, also know as “Guccifer,” told Fox News’ Catherine Herridge in a phone interview. Lazar said that he first hacked into Sidney Blumenthal’s AOL account in March of 2013 and used it to get into Clinton’s server that he says he accessed twice. He explained that he did research on the internet and then guessed the answers to Blumenthal’s security questions. Lazar said that the security...

    Retired US Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson is no stranger to controversy, with a legacy of questionable statements on Israel and the US government. In 2013 the former chief of staff for then-Secretary of State Colin Powell suggested that Israel was responsible for the use of chemical weapons in Syria. In 2007 Wilkerson appeared in a Dutch documentary, claiming that American foreign policy was dominated by “the Jewish lobby”. Despite his history of inflammatory rhetoric and frequent conspiracy theories, Wilkerson was tapped to serve as a military and foreign policy adviser for the Bernie Sanders campaign in 2015. In the wake...
  • Powell Blames Himself, Others For Specious Iraq WMD Claims to U.N.

    Former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell in a new book said he blames himself for not trusting his instinct and making what proved to be false assertions to the United Nations about Iraq's possession of weapons of mass destruction, Bloomberg reported earlier this month (see GSN, Feb. 17, 2011). Powell's high-profile February 2003 prewar presentation to the U.N. Security Council included now-discredited claims that Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein had movable biological weapons facilities and was involved in a "sinister nexus" with al-Qaeda. No evidence of active WMD production facilities or usable stockpiles have been found in Iraq following the...

    Cowboy president is courting disaster, says Powell's man By Francis Harris (Filed: 21/10/2005) Colin Powell's right-hand man has launched a blistering attack on the White House, describing President George W Bush as "cowboyish", his secretary of state Condoleezza Rice as "extremely weak" and American foreign policy as "courting disaster". The attack came from Col Larry Wilkerson, who for four years was Mr Powell's chief of staff at the state department during the first Bush administration. In a sometimes savagely phrased speech at a Washington think-tank, the former US marine said that the Bush team had so damaged the country's foreign...

    You're a TV show host, and your guest has just suggested he'd like to "do something" to a sitting US senator such that he doesn't even want to describe it on air. Think you might challenge him about it? Not if you're Ed Schultz. On this evening's Ed Show, renegade "Republican" Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Colin Powell and a big supporter of President Obama's Iran deal, was complaining about Democrats who have questioned the deal. According to Wilkerson, the problem is people who are too "enamored about the State of Israel." Singling out Chuck Schumer, Wilkerson said...
  • 'Smoking gun' emails just released by UK Daily Mail prove Hillary a bigger liar than Tony Blair

    The UK Daily Mail is making big headlines (at the top of the Drudge Report page as I write) with its exclusive story purporting to prove that former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair was committed to war with Iraq at a time he was telling the British public that he was seeking a diplomatic solution. The email it cites came from “a batch of secret emails held on the private server of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton which U.S. courts have forced her to reveal.” I think the Daily Mail has buried the lead. For one thing, the secret memo...

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says the Republican Party has shifted much further right than the rest of the country — and GOP leaders must get its fringe members in line. During an appearance at the Washington Ideas Forum on Wednesday, Powell said it “should be obvious to party leaders that they cannot keep saying and doing the things that they were doing and hope to be successful in national-level election in the future, not just in 2016.”

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who endorsed President Obama in 2008 and 2012, told the Washington Ideas Forum that there’s a special reason why he doesn’t change his party affiliation. Powell confirmed that he’s still a registered Republican. “I want to continue to be a Republican because it annoys them,” he quipped. “I think the party has shifted much further right than where the country is and it should be obvious to party leaders that they cannot keep saying and doing the things that they were doing and hope to be successful in national-level election in the future, not...

    WASHINGTON -- President Bush and his top advisers have decided, for now, against launching a war to overthrow Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein in the next phase of the U.S.-led war on terrorism, according to senior U.S. officials and Western diplomats. With the al-Qaeda terrorist network all but vanquished in Afghanistan, speculation has been growing that Bush would turn his sights on Hussein, a longtime U.S. nemesis who is known to have chemical and biological weapons. Iraq also is believed to be working on obtaining nuclear weapons. But the officials and diplomats, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said Bush's ...

    CHUCK TODD: ...let's start right with Iran. Is this a good deal? COLIN POWELL: I think it is a good deal. I studied very carefully the outline of the deal and what's in that deal. And I've also carefully looked at the opposition to the deal. And my judgment, after balancing those two sets of information is that it's a pretty good deal. Now, I know that there are objections to it, but here's why I think it's a good deal. One of the great concerns that the opposition has, that we're leaving open a lane for the Iranians to...
