The Clinton staff has repeatedly tried to put Colon Powell into the spotlight for the Benghazi scandal. Is Colon Powell allowing it?
Powell stated that he repeatedly told Clinton staffers that he wanted nothing to do with the private email scandal Hillary is caught up in. According to Powell, Hillary keeps putting herself in direct line of fire for more and more. Now it’s the personally leaked e-mails.
What Did Colon Powell Say About HRC?
Powell wrote in one leaked e-mail from DCLeaks.com, “Dumb. She should have done a ‘Full Monty’ at the beginning.” The email was written back in August.
The e-mails also showed Powell knocking the Conservative Nominee, Trump. Colon Powell called Trump a, “National Disgrace.”
These leaked e-mails were posted on Tuesday by Buzzfeed and the Intercept.
In one of the stories, he was asked about his remarks about Donald J. Trump. and Powell replied, “No further comments.” Really, you aren’t going to defend your own words?!
He also reported to NBC NEWS that the hackers have a lot more files on hand. (We’ll be reporting on that soon so stay tuned!)
Powell then went on to add, “I warned her staff three times over the past two years not to try to connect it to me.” Then he said, “I am not sure HRC even knew or understood what was going on in the basement.”
So Is Colon Powell Responsible for Benghazi?
Regardless of whether they knew or not, it shouldn’t release them from being responsible for what happened in Benghazi. Mr. Powell also had his own private e-mail account when he was in office. He reported he was not responsible for the email server. It’s funny how he used that. Because Hillary reported the same to CNN in a recent interview she did. Strange how they are not in charge of e-mails servers that contain such privileged information.
Colon Powell added he, “spent last week with Cheryl Mills and the HRC team burying the email flap.” In one August email to Mills, he commented on a high-level Clinton advisor from the State Department…“Sad thing. HRC could have killed this two years ago by merely telling everyone honestly what she had done and not tie me to it.”
One more statement from Powell, “I told her staff three times not to try that gambit. I had to throw a mini tantrum at Hampton’s party to get attention. She keeps tripping into these ‘character’ minefields.”
The statement was made in reference to an event in which Powell told the people at People Magazine that HRC’s people had been repeatedly trying to pin the blame on him.
