Colin Powell Taught Hillary How To Circumvent State Dept.: “Be Very Careful. I Got Around It By…”

This article was written by Tyler Durden and originally published at Zero Hedge.

Editor’s Comment: There is no longer any shadow of a doubt that Hillary was intentionally avoiding scrutiny and that, as these emails show, she deliberately sought out advice and a strategy to stay off the State Dept. servers and keep her info away from public scrutiny. Colin Powell, Secretary of State under George W. Bush, was happy to oblige and had an extensive protocol for remaining unaccountable.

And that is how Hillary will regard all of the laws of this country – they are for little people, for someone else, and her strategy will be to stay off the books as much as possible. The levels of denial, deceit, cover-up and destruction of evidence that have been uncovered or proven are astounding and, in a normal world, would make everyone very worried about having this person in a position of authority. It would be like hiring a multiple felon and bank robber to manage a team of bank tellers… absolutely asking to be robbed again.

And yet, here’s how defensive Hillary has become about classified email questions, as evidenced by her response to a question at the forum last night:

Democrats Release Powell’s Instructions To Clinton How To Bypass State Servers, While Warning Of Dangers

by Tyler Durden

Thanks to Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings thoughtful decision to release an email exchange between former Secretaries of State Colin Powell and Hillary Clinton, we can now confirm that Hillary was well aware of the lack of security and the “real danger” before she made the decision to use a private email server.

In what we are sure was a selfless act of honesty by Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, the Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform publicly released an email exchange in which former Secretary of State Colin Powell advised then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the use of personal email two days after she was sworn in as Secretary…

Subject: Re: Question

I didn’t have a BlackBerry. What I did do 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. Now, the real issue had to do with PDAs, as we called them a few years ago before BlackBerry became a noun. And the issue was DS would not allow them into the secure spaces, especially up your way.

When I asked why not they gave me all kinds of nonsense about how they gave out signals and could be read by spies, etc. Same reason they tried to keep mobile phones out of the suite. I had numerous meetings with them. We even opened one up for them to try to explain to me why it was more dangerous than say, a remote control for one of the many tvs in the suite. Or something embedded in my shoe heel. They never satisfied me and NSA/CIA wouldn’t back off. So, we just went about our business and stopped asking.

I had an ancient version of a PDA and used it. In general, the suite was so sealed that it is hard to get signals in or out wirelessly. However, there is a real danger. If it is public that you have a BlackBerry and it it government and you are using it, government or not, to do business, it may become an official record and subject to the law. Reading about the President’s BB rules this morning, it sounds like it won’t be as useful as it used to be. Be very careful. I got around it all by not saying much and not using systems that captured the data.

You will find DS driving you crazy if you let them. They had Maddy tied up in knots. I refused to let them live in my house or build a place on my property. They found an empty garage half a block away. On weekends, I drove my beloved cars around town without them following me. I promised I would have a phone and not be gone more than an hour or two at Tysons or the hardware store. They hated it and asked me to sigh a letter relieving them of responsibility if I got whacked while doing that. I gladly did. Spontaneity was my security. They wanted to have two to three guys follow me around the building all the time. I said if they were doing their job guarding the place, they didn’t need to follow me.

I relented and let one guy follow me one full corridor behind just so they knew where I was if I was needed immediately. Their job is to keep you hermetically sealed up. Love, Colin

Dear Colin, I hope to catch up soon w you, but I have one pressing question which only you can answer! What were the restrictions on your use of your blackberry? Did you use it in your personal office? I’ve been told that the DSS personnel knew you had one and used it but no one fesses up to knowing how you used it! President Obama has struck a blow for berry addicts like us. I just have to figure out how to bring along the State Dept. Any and all advice is welcome. All the best to you and Alma, Hillary

Colin, I am finally out of the SCIF and want to thank you for all of the advice about berries, security and life on the 7th floor! I hope we’ll have a chance to visit in person sometime soon. All the best, H

From the release of this exchange we know two things:

1) The Democratic establishment has no qualms throwing Colin Powell under any bus at all if it helps Hillary get out of this corner, and

2) we know Hillary was well aware of the “real danger” of her actions and specifically told to “be very careful” not to say anything about it.

Still what difference does it make?

As we previously noted, Colin Powell was greatly displeased by Hillary’s attempts “to pin” the email scandal on him…

Powell told People Magazine that Clinton was using her private email long before their meeting.  “The truth is she was using it for a year before I sent her a memo telling her what I did [during my term as Secretary of State],” he said.

        I think this is quite possibly a fabrication. As usual, her and her crew are always lying, and if that doesn’t work, pointing fingers so as to say “lookie Colin did it too”. Power hungry and power mad while you and I (if you’re guilty of having a job) pay for it all. So why did it take this long for this revelation to come out? Cause they’re making it up that’s why. Everyday is an opportunity.

    7. Braveheart1776

      Nobama, damn good point. Colin Powell was definitely a POS himself. When he was in the Army, the only way he rose up through the ranks was through affirmative action, all the way to JCS. So one POS taught another POS how to ‘get around the system’. No surprise there.

    8. Observer

      Powell reminds me of the other famous affirmative action general, General Honore, from New Orleans. He spent all of Viet Nam in a black college avoiding the draft. Then as a combat infantry officer, he avoided earning the Combat Infantry Badge for over 30 years. How do you do that, with all the wars that were going on? Somehow, he managed to get one at the end of his career.

      • Frank Thoughts

        You always have to be careful with the women managers and the ‘minority’ affirmative action hires. Never trust them but you can work their incompetence and ‘above station’ status to your advantage. In the end they can only survive there based on surface and image. That means they have to find money for outside ‘technical’ advice. And you can work that like putty in your hands. There were always ones who didn’t understand this and they actually believed the Kool-Aid that they were amazing. I can remember many funny meetings where the incompetent, Kerry Washington-alike manager had to explain why the entire IT project had failed. Even their ‘skin badge’ couldn’t save their hide at that point. The other affirms with some brains learned quickly they better get some outside whitey or Asian help to make them look good.

      • smokey

        It used to be the Combat Infantry Badge, the CIB, was awarded only after service in a combat unit assigned to combat duty in a combat zone, after 30 or 45 days of combat. Troops like Engineers and such could not get the award without special documentation from the combat units they were with, that kind of thing. A combat unit in a combat zone assigned to reserve status doesn’t even make it.

        And, no one above Captain’s rank could get one. Majors and above were field grade officers and not combatants.

      So, now its Powell’s fault that Hillary broke the law? Hillary, if Collin jumped off a bridge would you jump off too?

    11. Frank Thoughts

      When I started my first high-level government job in the late 1990s in D.C. I was told by one of my mentors to do all serious work outside the official email system. Official emails were for screwing over others (like confirming a stupid directive so they would get shafted if the lawyers came in) or just happy talk: Dear Gemma, So amazing you are leading the press conference tomorrow! You are always so smart and clever! Frank

      All the real work was done outside government facilities and on non-government platforms. You had to be at your desk at 9 sharp but after that your day in the office was boring mandatory meetings (useless) and flirting and picking up hotties (interns!!). I never had a good idea while at work. We would book an official lunch meeting at a really nice hotel restaurant nearby. That’s where we took all the real decisions.

      If the lawyers ever looked at your emails or official diary, all they saw were inane chatter and meetings, meetings, meetings. The IT department used all sorts of software to search emails for terms and to track internet usage (they blocked most of the popular content-sharing websites so the stupidest people in the office were the ones who only used the official systems). Another workaround was to set up multiple bank accounts so you could fund stuff without having to run an official invoice through the finance department. That department was truly awful and would force you to multiple bid for everything, from the most minor purchases (pens!)to getting documents printed. It was easier to just divert funds into the bank accounts and pay people out of that to get things happening. Another reality was sheer incompetence of most of your colleagues. They could never be trusted to deliver on anything that involved computers or high quality. That meant you had to hire consultants to get anything of worth done. And then that was the hell of the official procurement system and all the corruption that goes with that. Thus the other bank accounts to get around that. In the end, we just set up multiple fake companies and NGOs and used them to get things done. To be fair to Hillary, I think that is what the Clintons were responding to.

    13. Jim in Va.

      If its true,shame on him. Shame on her for blaming everybody else for her self inflicted problems and taking no accountability for anything. I’m sure Colin will end up in front of Congress after this.

      Like Hillary says.

    15. Observer

      Actually, Hillary’s actions are consistent with someone engaged in major criminal activity, and the cover up of that activity. In the past, it has come out that government employees did a lot of their criminal activities using multiple e-mail identities. We haven’t got to that part of Hillary’s crimes, yet. Fake e-mail names. Where is Snowden when you need him? Release faster.

      True that Colin Powell was Secretary of State under Bush – but him and Rice beat a FAST track to grovel at the feet of Obammy the First – they wanted to make sure they got their piece of the action from their new Black God on Earth ….

      Powell didn’t give Hellery those tips as a former Secretary – he was being an Uncle Tom to the DNC ….

    19. Nailbanger

      Buncha corrupt assholes

    20. Archivist

      So Powell actually thought a Blackberry was no more dangerous than a TV remote? He’s as ignorant as the “pointy-aired boss” in Dilbert who was given an Etch-a-Sketch for a laptop and told to shake it upside-down to reboot it. And it also sounds like he was too stupid to understand any kind of dumbed down explanation from the tech people.

    23. B from CA

      Knock Colin Powell if you like, but he would have been better than Obama. They wanted a first black President, but he must be more ethical than meets our eye, because he was pushed out of the race. I was disappointed. I was also disappointed when he affirmed weapons of mass destruction/chemical weapons in Irac when there were none. I am disappointed by his willingness to help Hillary cover up, but none of this makes him as culpable as Hillary herself.

      Hanging these people is not necessary. We have great prisons. Let them contemplate their misdeeds, take the reins of power from them. That would be the greatest punishment. Then let them out when they have been made impotent.

      I’m serious. Why make them into martyrs. Besides somebody needs to make license plates.

      I know most people here don’t really mean it when they say “hang Em”. I have said it simply to make a point.

      Now murder, that’s another story. If the stories of murder are proven to be true. I still would not give them a death sentence simply because Bill and Hill were Pres. And First Lady, but twenty years behind bars seems reasonable, especially if they had those teen boys killed. That was disgraceful intolerable and an abomination.
