A wealthy private equity investor told former Secretary of State Colin Powell that Hillary Clinton ‘HATES’ President Obama in newly leaked emails between the two men that were leaked by D.C. Leaks and obtained by The Intercept.
Jeffrey Leeds wrote to Powell in one email which was posted on Twitter by Lee Fang that all Clinton wants is to win the upcoming election, and that she might not win in the end.
He then went on to say: ‘It’s the one prize she wants. She has everything else. And she HATES the President (“that man” as the Clintons call him) that kicked her a** in 2008. She can’t believe it or accept it.’
In another March 2015 email exchange between the two the men talk about Clinton’s health, with Leeds stating that Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse informed him that ‘she could barely climb the podium steps’ when the two gave a speech at the same event a few months prior.
DailyMail.com has reached out to both Leeds and Whitehouse for comment.
Leeds also wrote to Powell about other problems he believed Clinton would be facing in the upcoming election.
‘No one likes her and the criminal thing ain’t over,’ wrote Leeds.
‘I don’t think the president would weep if she found herself in real legal trouble. She’ll pummel his legacy if she gets a chance and he knows it.’
That message was sent with a forwarded email from Politico declaring that Bernie Sanders had won Maine in the primary election.
In the email where the men were discussing her health, Powell also said about Clinton: ‘On HD TV she doesn’t look good. She is working herself to death.’
He then goes on to tell Leeds that the two were at the same home in San Francisco and he ‘ducked her so we didn’t turn loose another email story by being seen together.’
n an email exchange Powell had with another former Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, her called Benghazi a ‘stupid witch hunt.’
Powell wrote: ‘Basic fault falls on a courageous ambassador who thoughts Libyans now love me and I am ok in this very vulnerable place.’
He then added in the email, which was seen by Buzzfeed: ‘But blame also rests on his leaders and supports back here. Pat Kennedy, Intel community, DS and yes HRC.’
Rice responded by saying: ‘Completely agree. Let me know when you’re in town and we’ll have that glass of wine (or two).’
In other emails seen by The Daily Caller multiple people seem to suggest in exchanges with Powell that he plans on endorsing Clinton for president.
Christie Whitman, the former New Jersey governor who has already endorsed Clinton over Trump despite being a Republican, wrote to Powell in late July: ‘Have you endorsed her yet?’
Powell responded by writing: ‘Nope.’
He later added: ‘You’ll recall that in 2008 and 2012 I waited until early fall.’
