Powell-Clinton Email Issue

powell5The recently published book Man of the World – The Further Endeavors of Bill Clinton – was written by independent journalist Joe Conason. who covers – among other things – the email discussion.

Conason writes that Secretaries of State HillaryiClinton and ColiniPowell spoke together during a dinner party in Washington, D.C., hosted by Madeleine Albright, another former secretary of State.

In his book, Conason writes, “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…

“Powell told [Clinton] to use her own email, as he had done, except for classified communications, which he had sent and received via a State Department computer,” he added.

Regarding Hillary Clinton’s email – Colin Powell recently stated, “She was using it for a year before I sent her a memo telling her what I did [during my term as Secretary of State],”

“Her people have been trying to pin it on me.”  Powell added, “It doesn’t bother me. It’s OK, I’m free.”

Accordning to CNet – Hillary Clinton had requested a secure phone identical to the Blackberry model used by President Obama.  For their own reasons, NSA declined Clinton’s request, so she continued using her own Blackberry to send & receive unclassified data.
