Colin Powell: Hillary Clinton “was using [private email server] for a year before I sent her a memo”

Colin Powell: "Her people have been trying to pin it on me."

More Hillary Clinton lies exposed.

This time former US Secretary of State Colin Powell called out Hillary’s go to excuse for the email server she was hiding in her house…the excuse that (as the New York Times reported) foes like this…

Clinton told FBI officials former Secretary of State Colin Powell had advised her to use a personal email account while she held the Secretary of State office herself.

Powell told PEOPLE Saturday night while attending the Apollo in the Hamptons 2016 Night of Legends fête in East Hampton, New York…

“Her people have been trying to pin it on me.” 

“The truth is, she was using [the private email server] for a year before I sent her a memo telling her what I did.”

Why does Colin Powell believe this to be the case?

“Why do you think?” he said. “It doesn’t bother me. But it’s okay; I’m free.”

PEOPLE further reports…

The email scandal has dogged presidential hopeful Clinton for more than a year. But federal officials decided not to pursue criminal charges after a three-and-a-half-hour interview, which was when the Democratic nominee disclosed her alleged conversation with Powell.

The reported conversation was first brought to light in journalist Joe Conason’s upcoming Bill Clinton biography, Man of the World: The Further Endeavors of Bill Clinton, in which the writer details a dinner party held by Clinton and attended by Powell, Madeleine Albright, Henry Kissinger and Condoleeza Rice.

“Toward the end of the evening, over dessert, Albright asked all of the former secretaries to offer one salient bit of counsel to the nation’s next top diplomat,” Conason wrote. “Powell told her to use her own email, as he had done, except for classified communications, which he had sent and received via a State Department computer … [Powell] confirmed a decision she had made months earlier – to keep her personal account and use it for most messages.”

Powell’s office later released a statement to NBC News, saying he “has no recollection of the dinner conversation.” However, “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.”
