Former Secretary of State Colin Powell is supporting Hillary Clinton in November’s presidential election.
Powell, a retired four-star Army general and a Republican who served in the George W. Bush administration, reportedly made the announcement at a Tuesday event hosted by the Long Island Association, a business group focused on development in Long Island, New York.
Hacked emails that were published in September revealed that Powell had called Donald Trump, the GOP nominee, a “national disgrace” and a “international pariah” earlier this year. In a separate email, he decried what he called the “racist” conspiracy theory about President Barack Obama’s birthplace.

"He has insulted America in one way almost every day," Powell said of Trump, according to the newspaper.
"He has insulted Latino Americans. He has insulted African-Americans. He has insulted women. He has insulted his own party. He has insulted our allies around the world one by one. He has insulted veterans," Powell said.

I assumed he would. He has a brain in his head. TY for pointing out his announcement.
Or she has blackmail material on him.
