Hillary Clinton: Colin Powell made me do it


Colin_Powell_(15570753996)Hillary Clinton has continuously refused to admit that she did anything wrong by using a private, unsecure email server while she was secretary of state, and now NBC News is reporting that during her interview with the FBI earlier this summer she actually tried to place blame on another former secretary of state, Colin Powell:

Hillary Clinton told the FBI that former Secretary of State Colin Powell recommended on two occasions that she use a private email account for unclassified communication, sources told NBC News early Friday.

According to the Democratic nominee, Powell made the suggestions at a small dinner party shortly after Clinton took over at the State Department in 2009 and in an email exchange around the same time, The New York Times first reported. Two sources later confirmed to NBC News that Clinton gave that account to investigators in July.

Exonerating herself while simultaneously incriminating a high profile Republican? How could Clinton possibly resist!

As for Powell, his office issued the following statement Friday morning:

“General Powell has no recollection of the dinner conversation. 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. At the time there was no equivalent system within the Department. He used a secure State computer on his desk to manage classified information.”

Seeing as how Clinton outright lied about sending classified information over her private server, it would hardly come as a surprise if turns out she lied to the FBI about Powell’s recommendation, too.

    Again, Hillary was so stupid to understand that if Colin Powel asked her to create a private website, that means all her personal emails must go to her website. All official matters specially CLASSIFIED messages must to the US Dept, of State Official website.
    But in order to escape her crimes, she co-mingled the Classified emails to her own personal server. First that was an illegal move, a gross violation of the protocol of handling official information. She lied, she denied, or she is so stupid to understand procedures at her level. Now, she wanted to be your president, to continue her crimes against the American people and her stupidity and GROSS negligence if you call it that way as Comey did under the influence of intimidations perhaps.

      Hillary? Stupid? Not at all. But she certainly thinks we are.

      Her main objective was to insure that her web of illegal, shameful, unethical schemes (pay-for-play/foreign donors, family enrichment, crony enrichment) involving the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Global Initiative, Teneo, Sid Blumenthal, et al stayed OFF the secured, official US Government communications system that was at her disposal – WHICH SHE REFUSED TO USE – that would have automatically ARCHIVED ALL communications.

      To her, the damage to both our National Security and that of our Allies that ensued from her “extremely careless” use of an unsecured, unapproved, private email server was just inconsequential collateral damage; nothing voters should be concerned about.

      Hillary, you are CAUGHT, and we are NOT that stupid.

    Well, that’s a CLINTON for you. First, deny, deny, deny, deny wrongdoing. Next, after the FBI says “you did it”, say “I heard the FBI say I DIDN’T do it”. After THAT pillar of wet cardboard collapses, switch to “I depended on the professionalism of my staff” AKA “threw my staff under the bus”. When THAT concrete kayak sinks, fall back to “One of my predecessors told me to do it” – which of course he did not.
    Methinks the unindicted criminal running for President is nearly out of excuses. What say you?

      With all those victims winding up under the Bus, Hillary could qualify to be the Greyhound President ! “Take the Bus and leave the corruption to us” !

  • Richard Bagenstose

    hillary you need to do like oboma , and surround your self with trolls , to throw under the bus , you ain’t going to lie your way out of this one

  • Richard Bagenstose

    better watch it powel , you might wined up lieing on the floor , another one of hillarys mysterious deaths


    What can I say about Hillary, denigrating one of the most distinguished public officials and patriotic military generals that this country has been fortunate to have. Deflecting attention away from her own questionable actions as Secretary of State that have serious implications for someone attempting to become president. Powell supported George Bush’s questionable justifications for war in Iraq because as a military officer, he has a Constitutional obligation to carry out all orders given by his president. He may have questioned these justifications but it’s not his job to make those concerns public in a debate over potentially critical national priorities.

  • Charles Covington

    A democrat, it is always someone else made me do it, its not my fault, if you watch a discussion between a conservative and a democrat, always interrupting, talking over , always drowning them out and never admitting to wrong doing

  • Charles Covington

    democrats are never held accountable, they lie and lie and lie, there is no truth, none what so ever, they feel is they say a lie long enough, and keep repeating it, it becomes truth

  • Brooklyn Dinky Dau

    Miz Clinton also blames 300 career State Department employees for putting classified e-mails on her server. There is something very wrong with this person. I know America is due a woman President, but not this loony-tunes. What an embarrassment – no shame, no scruples, no morals!

  • jeannemartin

    Oh, no! Hillary will devise some other excuse if that one doesn’t fly! She is unable to admit any wrong doing so the excuses (lies) keep coming!!!
