Yesterday, Mary blogged about the latest Wikileaks DNC document dump. But a separate document dump of hacked emails published by made public a trove of emails from former Secretary of State, Colin Powell.

Unlike the DNC or Clinton email dumps, there exists no earth-shattering revelation of Powell’s nefarious intentions, if he ever had any. His emails do reveal what he really thinks (or thought in some cases) about many a Beltway elite, and they’re hilarious.

No one was spared.

Powell called Trump an “international pariah,” and former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, “the idiot Rummy.” Of the former Vice President Dick Cheney and his daughter Liz, Powell referred to them as, “idiots and a spent force peddling a book that ain’t going nowhere.”

Expressing extreme annoyance with Hillary’s handling of the email scandal, Powell wrote:

“H.R.C. could have killed this two years ago by merely telling everyone honestly what she had done and not tie me into it,” Mr. Powell wrote late last month, referring to Mrs. Clinton by her initials. “I told her staff three times not to try that gambit. I had to throw a mini-tantrum at a Hamptons party to get their attention. She keeps tripping into these ‘character’ minefields.”

By far, the best email to surface concerning the Clintons was this one:


I mean, he’s not wrong (according to the NYP).

Independent Journal Review’s Creative Director, Benny Johnson, on Powell’s contribution to 2016:

So, don’t look for Powell to endorse Hillary any time soon.

Never change, 2016.
