Colin Powell Throws Clinton Under The Bus On Email Scandal
During this campaign, Hillary Clinton has “repeatedly” thrown Colin Powell under the bus whenever the heat on her private email server gets too hot.She has even directing blame at Powell in multiple debates. Most significantly, Clinton told the FBI that it was Powell who gave her the idea to use a personal email as Secretary of State in the first place.
Yet it appears that Powell has finally had enough with Clinton’s relentless blame shifting. Speaking with People, Powell stated that the idea for Clinton to use a private email server was solely Hillary Clinton’s, not his:
“‘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.”
