It is the Clinton way, when in doubt blame someone else. But they forget most people would trust former Secretary of State Colin Powell’s word over that of Hillary Clinton. Powell says team Clinton is trying to throw him under the bus for the email scandal.
According to reports Hillary Clinton told FBI officials that former Secretary of State Colin Powell had advised her to use a personal email account while she held the Secretary of State office herself.
In an statement on Friday, Powell said he didn’t remember the dinner conversation where he supposedly told her to use a private email but, “He did write former Secretary Clinton an email memo describing his use of his personal AOL email account for unclassified messages and how it vastly improved communications within the State Department.” Notice the word unclassified.
People Magazine saw Colin Powell Saturday night and the former Sec of State complained that team Clinton was trying to throw him under the bus.
“Her people have been trying to pin it on me,” Powell, 79, told PEOPLE 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 okay; I’m free.”
Let me ask, which former Secretary of State do you believe?
