Rice Confirms Powell’s Recollection


Chuck Ross has a post over at The Daily Caller reporting that Condoleezza Rice confirms Colin Powell’s recollection of the email advice he gave Hillary Clinton at a 2009 dinner party. The party was gathering of former Secretaries of State at the Madeleine Albright’s home.  Powell has complained that Clinton is trying to pin her sloppy practices on his advice.

Powell’s email practices were quite different than Clinton’s. He used an AOL account while Clinton paid a State Department employee under the table to manage her email system, which involved a personal account and a private server.

Powell also says he used the State Department’s classified system to send and receive emails with classified information. Clinton declined to use that system, even though she was provided with an account on it. Instead, she sent and received all of her emails from her personal, non-government BlackBerry.

Huma Abedin used her unsecured private email account to make and discuss travel arrangements for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The Washington Examiner reports that emails obtained by Judicial Watch show that

Abedin emailed colleagues that she was “on a packed train” but offered to discuss the details of a trip to Russia on a call.

Another email shows Abedin used her private account to select a hotel for Clinton on an upcoming trip to Hanoi.

Now, who would be interested in the travel plans of a U. S. cabinet officer?
