NYT reporter: Fear of prosecution may have driven Hillary to blame Powell on emails

Mark Landler, author of Alter Egos: Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and the Twilight Struggle Over American Power, told a Washington audience that Clinton probably lost Powell's endorsement as a result.

"I think that the more recent comments about Powell may arise slightly out of a desperation in the face of possible prosecution, and so it's unfortunate. She may well have lost her Colin Powell endorsement over this, it's likely she has," he said during a discussion of world order at the German Marshall Fund of the United States.

Clinton, in the latest escalation of the email scandal, suggested that having a separate email server was an idea offered up by Powell. He rejected that, however, saying, "her people are trying to pin it on me."
