Colin Powell provided some colorful commentary on the personal
life of former President Bill Clinton, according
to recently leaked emails
.

In 2014, Powell wrote that he “would rather not have to vote” for
Hillary Clinton because of reasons that included a report her
husband was “still dicking bimbos at home.”

Powell did, however, write that Hillary “is a friend.”

“A 70-year person with a long track record, unbridled ambition,
greedy, not transformational, with a husband still dicking bimbos
at home,” he wrote.

The secretary of state under President George W. Bush based his
last point on a
2014 New York Post story
.

That email, in addition to others, were posted on Tuesday to a
website called DCLeaks.com. An aide to Powell confirmed the
emails as “his emails,”
per The New York Times
. Powell himself
told BuzzFeed
that he was “not denying it,” although he had
no further comment.

In another email, first reported by BuzzFeed, Powell called
Republican nominee Donald Trump a “national disgrace” and an
“international pariah.”

He also blasted Trump for leading the “racist” movement against
President Barack Obama in 2011, which claimed that the president
was not born in the US.

“Yup, the whole birther movement was racist,” Powell wrote in an
email to a former aide last month. “That’s what the 99% believe.
When Trump couldn’t keep that up he said he also wanted to see if
the certificate noted that he was a Muslim. … As I have said
before, ‘What if he was?’ Muslims are born as Americans
everyday.”
