Hey, remember when Hillary Clinton told FBI investigators that Colin Powell had recommended private email to her, and Powell accused "her people" of "trying to pin it on me," and essentially (if not directly) called Clinton a liar?


NBC News: "House Democrats Release Emails Between Colin Powell and Hillary Clinton Showing Advice He Gave Her."
In the in January 2009 email exchange, Clinton asks the former secretary of state about restrictions in using a Blackberry, and Powell responded with how he used a land line to get around State Department rules.

"I didn't have a Blackberry," Powell said in the email. "What I did was have a personal computer that was hooked up to a private phone line (sounds ancient). So I could communicate with a wide range of friends directly without it going through the State Department servers. I even used it to do business with some foreign leaders and some of the senior folks in the Department on their personal email accounts. I did the same thing on the road in hotels."

The emails were released by Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Maryland, a ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Cummings said he procured the documents through a procedure that allows members of the committee to obtain federal records.

...Cummings, of the House committee, said the email exchange shows Powell advised Clinton on how to use private email as secretary of state, and proves Clinton wasn't the only person in that position to do so.

...Powell said in an email Wednesday night that he had no comment on the email exchange.
I'll bet.

I wonder if the media will ever notice that every time some dude accuses Hillary Clinton of lying, it turns out that he's the liar? All signs point to "no."
