    If it transpires Secretary Powell has been disclosing highly classified information (however inadvertently) via his private email account, can we expect a conservative campaign for him to be indicted?

    Israel has 200 nuclear weapons, according to the latest revelation hidden in a cache of Colin Powell's leaked emails.

    Some Israel watchers estimate the country has as many as 400 weapons but Mr Powell is one of the most authoritative sources to date.

    The former US secretary of state revealed the information in an email he sent to a colleague last year, which was obtained by the hacking group DCLeaks and published on LobeLog, a foreign policy blog.

    No, even though, if an accurate report, this is a rather serious violation of an ally's secrets. Very obvious secrets, that wouldn't require a classification designation to realize it. And all the while Powell has been professing innocence of Hillary's claim that he had told her, as the incoming Secy of State, the ways she could use private emails like he did.

    No, Powell is a Republican. And a former member of the illustrious GW Bush Administration. The Conservatives, and Republicans, aren't likely to rage about Powell as they have about Clinton.

    But it'll be interesting to see if they'll be even more hypocritical than they usually are, by continuing to call for Clinton's head, while giving Powell a pass. For what may be an even worse and more damaging use of email than anything Hillary did.

    Maybe they'll try to sow doubt by saying this leaked material may be doctored, or even totally bogus. Interesting to see if Powell himself has any comments. Maybe he'll do a Trump with his memory. Shouldn't the FBI now interview him, and examine his old emails, like they did with Clinton? How about more Congressional hearings?

    I am sure so-called "Israel" has more than 200 nuclear weapons. Who gave them? Our U.S. tax dollars... Since it has refused to sign the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty, the law banning aid to any nuclear-armed countries that did not signatory to the NPF around 1976, when the so-called “Symington Amendment” was passed by pro-Zionist Congress. Then it may or may not consider legal. It is no secret that Israel has nuclear weapons, because it was admitted by then US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton in her email of 2012, when she talked about why it was necessary to destroy Syria for so-called "Israel". Another Zionist asshole, Hilary.

    Where are Socalfitness and Bobbobknob when you need them? I'm sure they'd be calling for Sec Powell's head on a plate - not.

    God_Said is now spamming the threads with the same post. Time to report him for spamming (unfortunately there's no "batshit crazy" button).

    The Republicans and their apologists will simply say that Powell isn't running for president so it's not relevant.
    As if.

    I'm not sure conservative purists see Powell as being a true conservative. He's voted for and endorsed Obama twice over two separate Republican presidential candidates and he's seen as fairly moderate for today's conservative brand. And in the leaked emails he's bashing a third republican nominee in Trump which makes him 0-3 against Republicans in the last 12 years of presidential elections.

    Powell is definitely a RINO (Republican in name only), but there's only one reason conservatives won't be calling for an investigation and indictment over his alleged disclosure of classified information on his private email account: He ain't Hillary Clinton.

    True. And Powell was also a member of the glorious & revered (in their mythology) GW Bush Administration. That also included VP Dick Cheney, who's even more honored & worshipped than Bush in Conservative circles. Plus Hillary was the Secy. of State for Obama, and the primary political goal of Congressional Republicans has been to make Obama fail to gain political dominance in America.

    To Hell with the good of the country. A Republican Party operational motto is: "Party First, People Last". And sabotaging any Obama Presidential positive legacy, to weaken Democrats overall, is a secondary goal.
