Former Secretary of State Gen. Colin Powell, who supported Barack Obama in 2008, has finally awakened to the fact that Hillary Clinton is trying to blame him for her use of a private email account and an unsecured private server in her home – which she used to shake down foreigners and others for contributions to the Clinton Foundation and to pass around classified emails in violation of the Espionage Act.
To say the least, he’s not happy about it.
“Her people have been trying to pin it on me,” Powell, 79, told People Magazine Saturday night at the Apollo in the Hamptons 2016 Night of Legends fête in East Hampton, New York.
“The truth is, she was using [the private email server] for a year before I sent her a memo telling her what I did,” Powell added.
Why does the former diplomat believe this to be the case?
“Why do you think?” he said. “It doesn’t bother me. But it’s OK; I’m free.”
As WND reported earlier, the reported conversation was first brought to light in journalist Joe Conason’s upcoming Bill Clinton biography, “Man of the World: The Further Endeavors of Bill Clinton,” in which the writer details a dinner party held by Clinton and attended by Powell, Madeleine Albright, Henry Kissinger and Condoleezza Rice.
