Email exchanges between former secretary of state Colin Powell and Democratic donor Jeffrey Leeds suggests that while rumors have always persisted about there being little love lost between the Clintons and President Barack Obama, the animosity may go much deeper.
The exchanges are among a number of emails hacked from Powell’s personal email account and posted online by DC Leaks, a website that publishes content hacked from military leaders and political figures. In a separate exchange, the men also discussed Clinton’s health.
The Intercept’s Lee Fang posted the emails on Twitter:

“No one likes her and the criminal thing ain’t over,” Leeds wrote on March 6, adding that Obama wouldn’t “weep” should Clinton face an indictment.
“I don’t think the president would weep if she found herself in real legal trouble,” he continued. “She’ll pummel his legacy if she gets a chance and he knows it.”
In an earlier email between the two discussing a Peggy Noonan column about Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server, Leeds used the term “HATE” to describe the Democratic nominee’s take on her loss to Obama in 2008.
“Now it turns out that other State people were on the Clinton email so none of their emails were captured by the government,” Leeds said. “I think Hillary can’t believe she might not make it. It’s the one prize she wants. She has everything and she HATES that the president (‘that man’ as the Clintons call him) kicked her ass in 2008.”
