The dishonesty and subterfuge from Bill and Hillary Clinton has been well known since their days in Arkansas and has been a topic of much discussion during their time in the White House and right up to the present.
One might say scandal has dogged their tracks every step of the way.
Their favorite tactic to use when some new accusation looks like it might float is to do what all politicians do. Deny, deny, deny! The second thing they do is make excuses and thirdly when the first two don’t work they find someone they can throw under the bus. So who gets to have that honor this time?
None other than Former Secretary of State, Colin Powell!
According to an article in The Intercept:
Powell’s private messages were leaked by DCLeaks.com, an anonymously managed website that shares hacked emails from U.S. military and political figures. DCLeaks has a relationship with Guccifer 2.0, a hacker that many allege to have ties with Russian intelligence. DCLeaks provided access to Powell’s emails to a number of reporters on Tuesday.
Those emails revealed:
The emails show Powell regularly corresponding with reporters and friends about the Clinton email server scandal, explaining that his situation was different. When Powell arrived at the State Department, the information technology system was badly dated, he argued. And unlike Clinton, Powell never set up a private server. Instead, he used his personal AOL account, on a server maintained by AOL, and used a government computer for classified communications.
Here again we see Hillary Clinton shamelessly trying to shift the focus of attention off her indiscretions and onto someone else. Colin Powell even warned Hillary not to try and tie him to her email server problems:
“I told her staff three times not to try that gambit. I had to throw a mini tantrum at a Hampton’s [sic] party to get their attention. She keeps tripping into these ‘character’ minefields,” Powell lamented. He noted that he had tried to settle the matter by meeting with Clinton aide Cheryl Mills in August.
Hillary Clinton’s repeated efforts to pass the blame for her mistakes to anyone available demonstrates her inability to be responsible and her unfitness to be president of the world’s premier super power. We cannot afford to allow someone like her into such an important position!
