Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has this peculiar narrative about Colin Powell and how he enticed her to use her own email account during supper one evening and how this was the sole reason of her major violation of the law.
Powell has practically answered with “Um, no I didn’t and stop telling people that.” And now we have Condi Rice claiming the exact same thing.
From Daily Caller:
Former Sec. of State Condoleezza Rice has no recollection of a conversation at a 2009 dinner party where Hillary Clinton reportedly claims that Gen. Colin Powell advised her to use a personal email account.
Rice’s inability to recall the conversation makes her the second person to publicly undercut Clinton’s claim.
Both NBC News and The New York Times reported last week that Clinton told the FBI that Powell offered her the email advice during a dinner party at former Sec. of State Madeleine Albright’s home.
Hillary likes to create the fantasy that Colin Powell did the same thing she did.
The only problem? It’s really, really not true.
He didn’t have a private server in his house.
He didn’t send classified info around like it was a chain letter from grandma.
He also didn’t delete thousands of emails when the State Dept. asked him to turn them over.
Hillary did all that. It’s not the same thing.
Stop saying that it is.
