Colin Powell on Hillary:“A 70-year person with a long track record, unbridled ambition, greedy, not transformational, with a husband still d—ing bimbos at home
Colin Powell wrote in a stunning email that he doesn’t want “to vote for her” — an apparent reference to Hillary Clinton — in part because her husband is “still d—ing bimbos at home,” according to the hacker website DCLeaks.
“I would rather not have to vote for her, although she is a friend I respect,” Powell told Democratic donor Jeffrey Leeds in the email leaked on the site.
“A 70-year person with a long track record, unbridled ambition, greedy, not transformational, with a husband still d—ing bimbos at home (according to the NYP),” Powell added.
The email appears to be a reference to Hillary Clinton — and her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
The July 26, 2014, email came just days after The Post, which Powell appears to cite, reported: “Bill Clinton reportedly has a buxom blond mistress who visits so often when Hillary Clinton isn’t home in Chappaqua that the former president’s Secret Service detail have given her an unofficial code name: Energizer.”
The Post report cited Ronald Kessler’s book “The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of Presidents,” which was released in August of that year.
Asked about the email’s authenticity, Powell wrote to The Post on Wednesday: “Jeez, don’t remember this one. Best to ignore., don’t you think?”
