HE SHOULD HAVE USED HILLARY'S SERVER:

Colin Powell, in Hacked Email, Calls Trump 'National Disgrace' (MICHAEL D. SHEAR, SEPT. 14, 2016, NY Times)

Former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell, who served as President George W. Bush's top diplomat, derided Donald J. Trump as a "national disgrace" and an "international pariah" in personal email exchanges that were leaked online Tuesday.

In the emails, reported by BuzzFeed News, Mr. Powell also accuses Mr. Trump, the Republican nominee for president, of having embraced what Mr. Powell called a "racist" movement when he questioned the validity of President Obama's birth certificate.

An aide to Mr. Powell confirmed the hack and said, "They are his emails."

"Yup, the whole birther movement was racist," Mr. Powell wrote in an email to a former aide, according to BuzzFeed.
