Former U.S. Secretary of State Powell brushes off Clinton over emails

Former U.S. Secretary of State Powell takes part in an onstage interview with Aspen Institute President and CEO Isaacson at the Washington Ideas Forum in WashingtonFormer Secretary of State Colin Powell over the weekend dismissed reports that Democratic U.S. presidential nominee Hillary Clinton told federal investigators that it was at his suggestion that she used a personal email account, according to a media report. Powell, who served as the nation’s top diplomat under Republican president George W. Bush, told People magazine that while he did send Clinton a memo about his own email practices, Clinton had already chosen to use personal email rather than a government account while she had the job. Clinton, who faces Republican Donald Trump in the Nov. 8 U.S. presidential election, has been dogged for more than a year about questions over her use of private email account and a personal computer server while she was secretary of state from 2009-2013, during President Barack Obama’s first term.
