Once again, Hillary Clinton suffers death by a thousand emails

History will look back on Hillary Clinton’s campaign and see death by a thousands cuts — or should we say death by a thousand emails?

In the latest email bombshell, hackers released Colin Powell’s private emails exposing the four-star general’s true feelings about Hillary Clinton and her philandering husband, former President Bill Clinton.

When contemplating the thought of a Hillary Clinton presidency, Powell wrote: “I would rather not have to vote for her, although she is a friend I respect. A 70-year person with a long track record, unbridled ambition, greedy, not transformational, with a husband still (expletive) bimbos at home.”

Ouch. In just one email, the major Beltway insider confirmed what millions of Americans have long suspected: that Hillary Clinton is a major money grubber who put up with her husband’s slippery ways — including sexually exploiting a young intern — for her own gain.

Or as Powell put it, “unbridled ambition.” That revelation alone speaks volumes. It paints an icy picture of a highly calculating, power-thirsty woman who will stop at nothing to amass millions and advance her career, even if it means sacrificing true love — life’s greatest gift.

But that’s not all. Powell also talked about Clinton’s management skills: In one email, Powell commented on her tenure at the State Department and said “everything HRC touches she kind of screws up with hubris.”

When discussing Clinton’s rogue email system: “It could have been so easy for her just tell what she did, a ‘Full Monte.’ Last night several folks came up to me to say ‘She threw you under the bus.’ I replied ‘Don’t be silly, she is under the bus.’ The FBI guys loved me and so did the IG types. But conversation turned to: ‘Clinton’s always trying to use you.’ Most folks up here detest (Donald) Trump and won’t vote for him, but dislike her intensely at the same time.”

In an email from this summer, Powell called Clinton’s excuse for using a rogue email server a “dumb” one: “I warned her staff three times over the past two years not to try to connect it to me. I am not sure HRC even knew or understood what was going on in the basement.”

So there you have it. A war hero who endorsed Barack Obama in both 2008 and 2012 and who has known the Clintons intimately for decades confirmed “that everything HRC touches she kind of screws up … .”

Is this who you want in the Oval Office?
