A couple of days ago, Congress received notes of last month’s FBI interview of Hillary Clinton.
During the course of the interview, Hillary noted that former Secretary of State Colin Powell had encouraged her to use private e-mail shortly after she assumed that role.
However, an excerpt from Joe Conason’s forthcoming book on Bill Clinton titled Man of the World, notes that Powell also told her that private e-mail was not to be used to send and receive classified information during a dinner party at Madeleine Albright’s D.C. area home. Although Powell doesn’t recall the conversation, he did send Hillary a memo regarding the use of private e-mail for unclassified messages in early 2009.
Needless to say, Powell did not set up a private e-mail server as Hillary did. But no matter. It would appear that endorsing Barack Obama twice doesn’t get you very far with Hillary Clinton.
Of course, that FBI interview would result in no criminal charges against Hillary Clinton. But try as she might, the e-mail scandal (and the shenanigans with The Clinton Foundation) just won’t go away even with the mainstream media square in her corner. So long as that is the case then Trump has a chance to prevail in November.
