Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton reportedly told federal authorities during her questioning over her email practices while at the State Department that former Secretary of State Colin Powell encouraged her to use a private email account.

The New York Times reported Wednesday that Clinton’s revelation is part of the FBI’s notes that were given to Congress on Tuesday about the agency’s questioning in July that led Director James Comey not to pursue criminal charges against her over her use of private emails.

An email exchange emerged from 2009 between Clinton and Powell during the questioning that revealed that she had asked the former secretary of state about his email practices under George W. Bush, a source told The Times. Clinton had already setup her private email server during that time.

The Times reported that the conversations between Clinton and Powell are revealed in an upcoming book detailing Bill Clinton’s post-presidency, titled “Man of the World: The Further Endeavors of Bill Clinton,” by Joe Conason.

The book details a conversation between Clinton and Powell at a party hosted by Madeleine Albright in Washington. The Times reported that Henry Kissinger and Condoleezza Rice also attended the event.

    Trouble loves company. Did anyone think that she would take any responsibility?

    What Gen. Powell said was that he did use a private e-mail account because it was more efficient then the one they used in the early 2000’s, but not using a private server in his house. He also specifically said NOT to use it for classified documents, which is what she did. Also, the State Department changed the rules so now they do not allow for private e-mail usage for official duties, even unclassified ones. She has said, over and over again, that she believes there are different rules for the Clinton’s, and she is trying to prove it again that she believes normal rules do not apply to them.

    I don’t care what Colin Powell thinks about email. Hillary should have used the government email. Her email was probably hacked. The hackers were able to gain access to sensitive government information thanks to her carelessness. My question is how many people were killed because of her hacked mail?

      If we had handled classified materials as carelessly as she did, we’d be in prison. But SHE is immune to everybody elses laws. Maybe when Trump gets elected he’ll have her tried for treason and incompetantence..

        …and somehow Hillary just keeps on getting away with it. Hopefully on election night the voters will permanently end Hillary’s chances of ever becoming president. One corrupt Clinton presidency is enough.

      For the past 20 years it has always been the “vast right wing conspiracy”. They MADE Bill have sex with that woman. They MADE bill commit perjury. They MADE her lie, cheat and, quite possibly, steal to “win” the election over Sanders. It is ALWYAS some one else whit these two.
