The Colin Powell email hack continues to churn out some eye-popping messages — from the former Secretary of State expressing bitter resentment at Hillary’s “minions” trying to drag him into her email scandal by drawing false equivalencies, to his brutal assessment of Donald Trump, to his smackdown of Hillary’s self-destructive hubris. Another newly-revealed correspondence shows Powell expressing his preference not to vote for his “friend” Mrs. Clinton, scalding her as a power-hungry and avaricious, and making a rather…vivid description of Bill Clinton’s alleged never-ending sexual escapades. Yowza (content warning):
Leeds, who donated to Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, wrote back to share information he obtained regarding Clinton’s condition from Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse. “Sheldon Whitehouse, who is a huge Clinton supporter, said they were both giving speeches at the same event a few months back and she could barely climb the podium steps,” he told Powell.
Hmm. Another reason the Hillary illness storyline isn’t fading is that her husband keeps making “misstatements” that pump more oxygen into the controversy. In a CBS News interview, the former president said that his wife has experienced similar travails on multiple occasions in the past, initially saying this happened “frequently,” before correcting himself. The network edited the clip to remove those few seconds, ostensibly due to time constraints. I debated the issue with a Clinton supporter on Megyn Kelly’s show last night, agreeing that Donald Trump should be much more transparent about his medical history and tax returns, but pointing out that whenever Hillary gets into trouble or faces criticism, her defenders reflexively scream “but Trump!” Right on cue, her backer confirmed my point — via Right Sightings:
