The blame it on all on Bush bunch rides again! In what more evidence that the Democratic party’s presidential nominee is a pathological liar, Hillary Clinton is looking to pass the buck over her usage of that troublesome private email server. While being interviewed by the FBI, the piranha in a pantsuit told the feds that it was former Secretary of State Colin Powell who gave her the advice on how to conduct her communications after she assumed the gig.
According to The Hill “Clinton to FBI: Powell said to use private email”:
Hillary Clinton reportedly told FBI investigators that former Secretary of State Colin Powell recommended she use a private email account at the State Department.
Clinton allegedly discussed email practices with her predecessor during a dinner after she became the top U.S. diplomat in 2009, The New York Times said Thursday.
The New York Times said journalist Joe Conason first reported the talk in his forthcoming book about Bill Clinton’s life after the presidency, “Man of the World: The Further Endeavors of Bill Clinton.”
An advanced copy the newspaper received states that Hillary Clinton spoke with Powell during a dinner party in Washington, D.C., hosted by Madeleine Albright, another former secretary of State.
Former secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and Condoleeza Rice also attended the festivities, which occurred at Albright’s home.
“Toward the end of the evening, over dessert, Albright asked all of the former secretaries to offer one salient bit of counsel to the nation’s next top diplomat,” Conason wrote.
“Powell told [Clinton] to use her own email, as he had done, except for classified communications, which he had sent and received via a State Department computer,” he added.
“Saying that his use of personal email had been transformative for the department, [Powell] thus confirmed a decision she had made months earlier — to keep her personal account and use it for most messages.”
Powell though has no recollection of the conversation which is 99 percent certain to be another of Hillary’s whoppers. Since she wasn’t placed under oath during the FBI testimony she could have lied her ass off – and likely did – without fear of consequences.
Politico reports that “Powell has ‘no recollection’ of Clinton email dinner conversation”:
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell “has no recollection of the dinner conversation” recounted by Hillary Clinton to FBI agents, as documented by journalist Joe Conason in a forthcoming book.
Conason’s anecdote, reported Thursday night by The New York Times, recounts a small dinner party at Clinton’s Georgetown home toward the beginning of her time as secretary of state, with former secretaries Madeleine Albright, Henry Kissinger and Condoleezza Rice also in attendance. During that dinner, Conason reports, Albright asked the former secretaries to impart advice to Clinton.
“Powell told her to use her own email, as he had done, except for classified communications, which he had sent and received via a State Department computer,” Conason wrote in his book “Man of the World: The Further Endeavors of Bill Clinton,” of which the Times said it acquired an advance copy. Powell, according to Conason’s account, told Clinton that “his use of personal email had been transformative for the department” and “thus confirmed a decision [Clinton] had made months earlier — to keep her personal account and use it for most messages.”
A spokeswoman for Powell’s office issued a statement following the Times’ story: “General Powell has no recollection of the dinner conversation. He did write former Secretary Clinton an email memo describing his use of his personal AOL email account for unclassified messages and how it vastly improved communications within the State Department.”
It should be noted that Joe Conason is a longtime water carrier for the Clinton Crime family.

Hillary’s the dog ate my homework excuse is so lame that in even earned her an unprecedented rebuke from the Washington Post.
In an incredulous column, flaming liberal Chris Cillizza writes “Hillary Clinton’s ‘Colin Powell did it’ defense of her email practices is just plain wrong”:
The attempt to — again — equate what Powell did with what Clinton did is yet more evidence that either the candidate, her senior advisers or both simply don’t get it. No, Clinton wasn’t indicted by the Justice Department for her email setup. But she was badly reprimanded by FBI Director James Comey for her email practices; it was an unequivocal condemnation of her conduct in relation to her approach to electronic communications while serving as the country’s top diplomat.
You know that Mrs. Clinton’s mendacity is reaching critical mass when a normally reliable propaganda organ like the WAPO calls her on the bullshit.
Always remember that you can’t spell Hillary without the letters L-I-A-R.
