    Go figure. Once again, the naysayers are proven wrong and Clinton is justified. Not a peep from the mainstream media on this.

    You can't possibly be that naive. Powell never said he used his private phone to send or receive classified information. He said it was for personal or non-classified business.

    Have you ever had a security clearance granted by DSS/DoD?

    Do you have any idea what SIPRNet is and what it is for?

    How about JWICS? Do you know what it is for and how it is used?

    Are you aware of the agreement you must read, review with a DSS agent, and sign regarding access to and transmission of classified information when you received a security clearance?

    Go ahead. Google it. I will wait for you to invent some sort of response.

    "Not a peep from the mainstream media on this."

    Not "a" but many, sorry you missed them.

    Also, check the dates if you have time, some of Powells "advice" was after she had her server set up - from what I've heard

    He says "I even used it to do business with some foreign leaders...".
    The point of the email was that he DID advise her on the use of the servers and the conversations he didn't "remember" them having, they actually had.

    Yes, NON-CLASSIFIED business.

    He didn't say whether or not it was classified business. But again, it confirms they DID have the type conversation that she said even if he "couldn't remember".

    So, you are accusing General Powell of committing a felony? What evidence do you have to support that charge?

    First off, one person doing something wrong doesn't relieve or lessen another's. Second, no where does it state that he used the server for classified information, and no where does he say that Clinton could.

    It wasn't "conversations"; it was one conversation that Hillary said they had.

    Zaac, I find it hard to believe that you're defending Hillary on this. Question is, why is it so important for you to try to make this a non-issue, when every time you do try, it gets shown (as in this posting) that you're wrong?

    In 2007 Hillary said that the Bush administration had "shredded the Constitution" when they used "secret email accounts".

    A couple of years later she set up her own secret email accounts and servers. I guess she just...forgot.

    If General Powell committed a felony, his own words accused him.

    ??? You're starting to act like some other folks on here now with this saying stuff as though I've said it and then asking for me to prove it.

    Again, I didn't say anything about him using the server for classified or unclassified information. That's not what Hillary Clinton said either. She said they had conversations where he told her to use her own server. HE said he didn't remember the conversations. This proves the conversations probably did happen just as she said.

    I don't even know why yall are trying to skate around this. Yall know as clear as day that Colin Powell told that lady to use a private server just like he no doubt told Condoleeza Rice.

    It's no secret.

    She didn't say it made it right. She's accepted responsibility for the poor judgment. But when the former SOS tells you that this is what you do and it is what other SOSs have done, you probably don't think there's much of an issue.

    The conversations happened.

    Y'all notice how Zaac is ignoring me?

    Here, let me give him another reason to ignore me.
    No one said the conversations didn't happen. This is a misdirection, trying to frame the argument to something that isn't up for discussion.

    The point here is that he told her he used it for unclassified emails. As evidenced by his statement that was issued BEFORE democrats released his email to Hillary--which ALSO stated "for unclassified use."

    He obviously thought she was intelligent enough to know the difference between classified and unclassified information.

    So either she's colossally more stupid than Colin Powell realized; or she didn't care. Either one makes her unfit for the presidency.

    She did? Did I miss something somewhere?

    Except he told her to do it for unclassified info. Pay attention, Zaac. You're smarter than this.

    Who said they didn't?

    Regarding Hillary taking responsibility for the use of the email server:
    Please note her word-play: "marked" classified. She knows full well that the FBI already stated that with her experience, she should have known what constitutes classified or unclassified.
    That last statement is exactly what Colin Powell advised her.

    So that kind of thoughtlessness (her self-description) makes you comfortable with her at the helm of the nuclear button?

    Saw this today:

    In an email reported by NBC, Powell wrote that he had told Clinton's "minions repeatedly that they are making a mistake trying to drag me in, yet they still try." In another spot, he declared of Clinton that "Everything HRC touches she kind of screws up with hubris."

    Colin Powell said he didn't remember any such conversations.

    You've said you're not voting for her; so why are you defending her? Or have you changed your mind?

    I've said I'm not voting for Trump or Hillary; you don't see me making excuses for either of them, do you?

    Do you remember the conversation you had across the dinner table with your mother three years ago?

    Oh goodness no! I'm not defending her. I just don't give a flying hoot that she did what the two previous SOSs did. Yall been talking about these emails for 19 months now. It ain't gonna keep her out of office.
