Powell in Leaked Email Slams Bill Clinton on Continuing Affairs with ‘Bimbos’

In an email that leaked on Wednesday, Colin Powell accused then-President Bill Clinton of adultery.

The Hill reports:

The emails are housed on password-protected DCLeaks.com, a website that security experts told Bloomberg News appears to have some connection to Russian intelligence operatives.

One email posted by CBS News editor Will Rahn shows Powell telling Democratic donor Jeffrey Leeds that he hopes to avoid having to vote for Hillary Clinton for president, pointing to the New York Post’s coverage of her husband’s alleged affairs.

“I would rather not have to vote for her, although she is a friend I respect,” he writes in the email dated July 26, 2014. “A 70-year-old person with a long track record, unbridled ambition, greedy, not transformational, with a husband still dicking bimbos at home (according to the NYP).”

Former President Clinton has been dogged by allegations of adultery for years, and his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky culminated in impeachment proceedings.

It’s the latest controversial email stemming from the leak — other conversations show Powell chiding GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and sharing concerns about Clinton’s health with Leeds.

Powell could not be reached to comment on the specific email, but spokeswoman Peggy Cifrino told The Washington Post Wednesday that “the general has been hacked and that these are his emails.”
