In the latest leak by Guccifer 2.0, a slew of emails from former Secretary of State Colin Powell have been released to the public, revealing a massive number of Powell’s private thoughts and correspondences.

Among a litany of other juicy details, Powell details his opinions of Hillary Clinton. In an email from July of 2014, Powell tells mega Democratic donor Jeffrey Leeds that he would rather not vote for Hillary.

“I would rather not have to vote for her, although she is a friend I respect. A 70-year person with a long track record, unbridled ambition, greedy, not transformational, with a husband still dicking bimbos at home (according to the NYP).”

Allegedly, Powell is referring here to an article from the New York Post about Bill’s alleged secret mistress.

Despite the fact that Powell prefaces his comments by saying he respects Clinton and considers her to be a friend, this description of the candidate is incredibly scathing. Despite his harsh language, Powell’s reflection on Clinton’s weak points as a presidential candidate have proved to be mostly true.

In another email from Powell, he outlined the various ways he felt Clinton’s email scandal differed from his own similar use of a private server. According to Powell, Clinton’s touch is anything but magic.

so much.
