“Hubris” was the topic in one of Colin Powell’s emails, as he writes of “HRC,” whom many already know as the Democratic Party’s 2016 presidential nominee, “Hillary R. Clinton,” and in this supremely contentious presidential election year with yet another email leak, perhaps voters should care about the information discovered in newly dumped DNC documents and those of former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell.

While Lee Fang is described as an Investigative Journalist for the Intercept on Twitter, another tweet from someone named “Deplorable Ulysses” also highlights the problem of the “pay to play” situation in politics.

These most recent tweets from an awakened public are being fully reported on social media, of course, but take more time to filter onto the mainstream news services. The messages from the former State Secretary cover two years’ worth of emails from Colin Powell, and were apparently “dumped by Guccifer 2.o,” according to the report by Darlene Storm over at Computer World. Next to Storm’s story is the mention of how important security should be.
“Most security news is about insecurity, hacking and cyber threats, bordering on scary. But when security is done right, it’s a beautiful thing… sexy even.”
Well, Colin Powell’s emails may not be deemed “sexy,” but they sure as heck are enlightening about those who want the power of the Presidency. Take this tweet as an example, regarding “how much the Clintons hate Obama.”

Those attending a cyber conference in London were treated to new email revelations, per the information provided by Thomas Fox-Brewster, writing over at Forbes.
“Guccifer 2.0 opted to use a proxy to read pre-written remarks and announce the newest DNC data dump.”
But wait there is more on the new DNC, Colin Powell emails according to Peter Hasson, a reporter for the DailyCaller online. The former Secretary of State is quoted as saying he “wasn’t aware of any infiltration” of his email account. Nevertheless, according to Hasson, there seems to be “… two years worth of emails dating back to June 2014 [which were] swiped from Powell’s Gmail account and given to the anonymously-run website DC Leaks, which publishes hacked emails and documents from major political figures.”
And another Daily Caller reporter, Chuck Ross, writes that the retired General Powell’s emails also shed some light on what Powell described as “Hillary’s mafia.”
Per that report, Powell’s emails reveal his concern about Clinton and her campaign to become the President of the United States of America. Ross wrote that Powell believed that the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee “… was trying to drag him into the Clinton email scandal.” The quote from the email is a bit more succinct, perhaps.
“Hillary’s Mafia keeps trying to suck me into it.”
Previously revealed very public sentiments, made by one of President Barack Obama’s own campaign strategists and current CNN commentator, David Axelrod, took a swipe at Hillary Clinton and the concern over her health in light of what seems to some voters to be what Axelrod declares as her “unhealthy penchant for privacy” in a tweet on the matter earlier this week.
Here is the Axelrod tweet, which came well before the new DNC document dump with the Colin Powell emails, back when media were jumping on Clinton’s possible health issues.
Antibiotics can take care of pneumonia. What’s the cure for an unhealthy penchant for privacy that repeatedly creates unnecessary problems?

Voters concerned about the newest DNC documents and the Colin Powell emails should stay tuned to these ongoing revelations.
