Skip to comments.Colin Powell: Everything Hillary Touches She Screws Up With Hubris
Posted on 09/14/2016 6:18:36 AM PDT by rktman
Colin Powell attempted to persuade Hillary Clinton and her aides to not use him as a scapegoat for the controversy surrounding her private email server, according to leaked emails hacked from the former secretary of states Gmail account.
In the emails, which were obtained by The Intercept, Powell wrote to at least one confidant about his repeated warning to Clinton not to blame him for the scandal.
I told her staff three times not to try that gambit. I had to throw a mini tantrum at a Hamptons party to get their attention. She keeps tripping into these character minefields, he wrote. He also had tried to settle the matter in a meeting with Clinton aide Cheryl Mills in August.
In a separate email, Powell said he warned her staff three times over the past two years not to try to connect it to me. I am not sure HRC even knew or understood what was going on in the basement.

Learned your lesson yet heir General?
Still time to come back home and rejoin the real Americans.
The good thing about Clintoon being sickly and frail is that she isn’t able to “power through” her screeches as much as she used to.
Was Powell actually naive enough to believe that the Clintons wouldn’t use him for their own political benefit? He must be delusional.
If he’s that stupid he should never have been Secretary of State.
Uh, pretty sure we don’t want him back. He showed his true..............oh. Guess I can’t say that huh.
LOL! Good one.
Its hard to “power through” when the wheels are coming off.
Condolessa Rice & Colin Powell both agreed in leaked emails on CNN that Benghazi was Ambassador Stevens fault.
I haven’t found the story on line yet, but it’s in Powell’s leaked emails.
He’s the African American version of Courtney Massengale.
Nah, he doesn’t want back in...he just hates hillary because she tried to use him like a n8gger. Cause she’s a racist!
... I had to throw a mini tantrum at a Hamptons party ...
What an a-hole.
Exactly. Character issue be damned, he will still support her.
Powell is just as arrogant as Clinton. For years and years know one knew if he was Democrat or Replublican. Yet he did quite well. That told me he is a major butt kisser.
Had he let Schwarzkopf go in an take Saddam out, it would have saved so much misery and bloodshed for so many people.
Now, he only comes down from Mt.Olympus to pontificate and lecture. I dont know what he told Hillary, but it was very inspirational when it came to server protocols.
Who wouldnt listen to such a highly decorated general.
Another Clinton lawn jockey.
The “rats” are running for cover as the “daylite” is exposing them in hoards, all thanks to our future president D.J. Trump. I don’t think Trump has finished with all those crooked bastards either, I can hardly wait until he opens the entire vault of lies and corruption. Is it any wonder why all the resistance to Trump being elected POTUS?
“Schwarzkopf go in an take Saddam out.”
That call was made above Powell.
He endorsed Obama...twice! ‘Nough Said!
A lot of us knew.
“LOL! I’m thinkin’ colon still won’t endorse Trump even though his much beloved progressive pals have tried to “Greyhound” him several times now. Typical dems. Blame the black guy. “
The media preempted this with Powell saying Trump is a bomb waiting to go off.
