In leaked emails obtained by The Intercept, longtime Clinton pal and “corporate financier” Jeffrey Leeds is quoted as saying that there is still tension between the camps of President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
According to the emails, the Clintons refer to President Obama as “that man” and still hold a grudge against him for beating Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic primary.
“I think Hillary can’t believe she might not make it,” Leeds wrote to former Secretary of Defense Colin Powell in 2015. “It’s the one prize she wants. She has everything else.”
“And she HATES that the President…kicked her ass in 2008,” Leeds continued.
The email exchange also included a lack of sympathy from both Leeds and Powell over Clinton’s mishandling of a private email server, in which she is alleged to have transmitted classified information.
“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,” Leeds wrote.
