Colin Powell says Clinton officials trying to ‘pin’ email scandal on him

by FOXNews.com  |  published on August 22, 2016


Former Secretary of State Colin Powell is pushing back on Hillary Clinton’s reported claims that he advised her to use a personal email account — telling reporters that the Democratic presidential nominee is trying to “pin” the scandal on him.

The New York Times reported last week that Clinton told the FBI that Powell detailed to her his email practices under George W. Bush. The paper cited a passage from an upcoming book about Bill Clinton’s post-presidency that read, “Powell told her to use her own email, as he had done, except for classified communications, which he had sent and received via a State Department computer.”

Powell, in response, said in a statement he only sent her a memo about his email practices and had no recollection of this conversation with Clinton.

    Charlie your dreaming Osama bin laden had many decoys , and the whole plan to capture him dead or alive was put into play by W bush , not by the “liar in chief” i am black not dumb and never plan to associate myself with the likes of the “liar in chief”

  • Tyronne Shoelaces

    She just will not take responsibility for anything, just like Obozo and the rest of the assnine democrats, or should I say communists.

  • PC Bob

    Colin Powell will NOT take a bullet from the Clinton machine! Not intentionally, anyway! Hillary Clinton will throw ANYONE under the bus; well, except for Bill, maybe. She can RUN but she sure can’t HIDE! I hope the FBI finally finds their cojones and PROSECUTES this lying witch! They have been missing for quite some time, now!

  • justinwachin

    I seek advice from a variety of people. I use my brain to filter that advice. Some advice that a person receives is not worth following. If Hillary becomes president is she going follow every bit of advice she is given? I doubt it. She is going to use personal judgment (which in her case is usually a bad idea) to decide what to use and what to ignore. She is trying to blame Powell. I’m glad he is speaking up.

  • itsfun

    Don’t worry, she will come out and call him a liar and her followers will buy into it. She will just use one the progressive big five reasons for this announcement. Bigotry, racism, sexism, hate, or the good ole blame George Bush and his administration.

    THANK GOD , we had george W in the white house for the Iraq war , he rid the world of the most ruthless dictators since hitler , and W put in motion the plans to get Osama Bin Laden even though “the Traitor in Chief” claims he got Bin Laden , Bush is responsible for getting Bin Laden not “the Liar in Chief” just like after Ronald Reagan set up our economy perfectly and Billy boy Clinton tried to say he fixed the Economy , Billy boy was riding REAGANS COATAILS trying to take credit for REAGANS great Economic Policies , we have not had good Economy since Reagan it’s been downhill , especially the last 8 years , i am a proud black man that is ashamed of what our beloved America has become

    • CharlieSeattle

      W Bush is responsible for “Letting Bin Laden safely slip into Pakistan” through the back door out of Tora Bora, where he was later found.

  • libsrtheh8ters

    It shouldn’t surprise nor bother him. The racist P O S fully endorsed Obama, the most lawless president in U.S. history.

  • Shelly Shannon

    GEESE Powell, go kick her ass. Stop being a pussy!

  • Howie Subnick

    FBI TRYING TO “PIN” SOMETHING ON HILLARY?! IT IS HARDER TO PIN THE TAIL ON A DONKEYS ASS THAN TO PIN ANYTHING ON HILLARY THE FUTURE CENTER FOLD OF A FEDERAL PRISON. HOPE SHE LIKES THE COLOR ORANGE FOR HER JUMP SUIT.

  • Dan

    Since when would a Democrat, or a Clinton of all people take the advise of a Republican? Please Hillary, we’re smarter than that….blame it on the Bush administration and Colin Powell…..

    Lol, Don’t worry one bit Colin Powell.

    You, W Bush, Dyk Cheney et al., avoided prison for lying to the American people about 9/11, Iraq and for falsely sending Susan Lindauer to prison.

    >>> Read “Extreme Prejudice” if you need a refresher about that.

    https://www.amazon.com/Extreme-Prejudice-Terrifying-Story-Patriot/dp/1453642757

    “Former Congressional staffer Susan Lindauer covered Iraq and Libya at the United Nations, as a U.S. Intelligence Asset and back door channel on anti-terrorism from 1993 to 2003. Most notoriously, in the summer of 2001, her team warned about a major terrorist attack involving airplane hijackings and a strike on the World Trade Center. Lindauer also campaigned heavily against the War in Iraq, and developed a comprehensive peace framework through her back-channel in the run up to War. This is the story of what happened when Lindauer tried to disclose the true facts of Iraqi Pre-War Intelligence and the 9/11 warning to Congress and the American people. It details the nightmare of her arrest on the Patriot Act and her imprisonment without a trial at the notorious prison inside Carswell Air Force Base in Texas. EXTREME PREJUDICE is a true life spy thriller.”

    The Killary email thing is a small pimple on the ass of your own lies and crimes.

        During the Persian Gulf war in 1991 Iraq fired 39 Scud missiles at Israel. That was 10 years after Operation Cobra and was barely related.

        • Tiger

          In 1995 Israel took out Husseins nuke site. End of story he had WMD. He killed close to 150,000 Kurd with Chemicals.

            From the article.

            The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
            (CDC) issued a warning yesterday about a mysterious polio-like virus
            that’s causing acute neurological illness and paralysis in children. The
            virus seems to be related to the nationwide epidemic of EV-D68 that we reported on during the first weeks of the outbreak.

            The CDC is investigating nine cases of muscle weakness or paralysis
            in Colorado children to see if enterovirus 68 (EV-D68) might be the
            virus responsible for the neurological symptoms.

            On Friday, The CDC issued a Health Advisory to doctors about the
            polio-like cases in Colorado, and said EV-D68 was detected in four of
            the eight sick children who were tested for the virus.

            Better read what docs are saying.

            From the article.

            While
            in El Paso, I also met with Dr. David Lakey, Commissioner of Texas
            Department of State Health Services who discussed his concerns about
            tuberculosis and other infectious diseases around the border. Lakey
            pointed out that Texas is second only to California with tuberculosis
            cases and that these cases are higher near the border than other parts
            of the state. Lakey said that in the poor communities along the border,
            people are less likely to get early treatment and often times they
            travel back and forth across the border and are not able to complete
            their treatment routine which leads to drug-resistant tuberculosis.
            Clearly the border is a challenge for those seeking to control
            infectious diseases.

            False!

            1981, my dear, was Israeli attack on Iraq nuke site.

            2007, Israel took out Syrian nuke site.

            And both are irrelevant to my factual comment!

    • Tiger

      Declassified documents show clearly Clinton and Carter responsible for 9/11 and Killery’s email and killing 4 Americans in Libya along with taking Ghadafi out who kept al Qaeda at bay and encouraged Egypt to take Mubarak down is no pimple, Killery and O plagues.

        Irrelevant!

        They were still lies that Colin recanted on TV. It did not matter if he agreed or not. Useful Idiots are MORE convincing if they do believe them.

        Thx for agreeing.
