Former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell and aides to his successor, Condoleezza Rice, both received classified information a handful of times via personal email accounts, the top Democrat on a congressional oversight panel said on Thursday.

The findings come after nearly a year of controversy over Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's decision to set up a private email server for her work as secretary of state. Democratic lawmakers and staff on Clinton's presidential campaign seized on the report as vindicating some of their defenses of the controversial arrangement.

Representative Elijah Cummings said the disclosures about Powell's and Rice's aides' emails were made by the State Department's inspector general, who is reviewing the email practices of the last five secretaries of state.


Personally, I think this is a brilliant move on the part of the Hillary Machine. Justify your crimes by pointing out other similar acts.

Regardless of the actual facts, I don't see a Hillary Clinton indictment.

A masterful move by Hillary. I may not like it, but it is brilliant!

Nice Deflection But She Is Still Guilty:



In a statement, Powell said the two emails he received were not judged to contain confidential information at the time they were sent to him by American ambassadors.

"I wish they would release them," Powell told NBC News, "so that a normal, air-breathing mammal would look at them and say, 'What's the issue?'"



Her crap is so Top Secret they refuse to release them.

I smell indictments coming real soon.

The MSM is accelerating the red herrings and 90° tangents all of a sudden.

Crystal clear.

If I were a shady politician that's what I'd do, too.

Shift the blame. Justify by saying, "They did it, too!!"

A key point. Since when can you indict someone for RECEIVING an email?

Is that the same as setting up a private server intentionally away from government oversight, then copy and pasting information from a classified system into the private system to avoid security measures?

Apples and oranges.

obama smoked weed once, therefore its legal everywhere's. Everyone convicted of possession can therefore use the transitive property?

There is a reason courts do not rely on the hearsay.

You can watch the microcosm in this very forum, day in, day out. It's the norm.

But, but he/she, but, but they.......

Justify actions based on others instead of what one know's, inherently as a human, is correct, fair and just.

In that case, coc aine would be legal too. Obama admitted to using it in his book.

"ON HER PRIVATE SERVER".

Did Powell and Rice ONLYu use their own private server for their jobs? That would be a no.
Did either Powell or Rice have the experience of living in the WH, married to the POTUS, and surrounded by classified emails? That would also be a no. Clinton was also a Senator.

No comparison.

She knew better. Send her arse to prison.

I agree.

But watch the pundits tomorrow.

This will all change because "republicans" did it, even though it'll be a complete lie.

I agree with you. It was a Master Stroke.

Though it's an apples to oranges comparison, it gives her supporters an acceptable answer to the e-mail conundrum. It's possible this may even slow the loss of voter support she's been experiencing.

I dislike Hillary in the extreme. But I will give her props for this one.

There was no use of a private server by Rice and Powell. Clinton ONLY used private email and her own, unauthorized private server.

Why do people not get this? Huge difference.

You know.
I know.

People with an IQ over a bowl of lukewarm urine knows.

But watch the media and the pundits.
