WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Secretary of State Colin Powell — in newly leaked emails — calls Donald Trump "a national disgrace," and Powell laments Hillary Clinton's attempt to equate her email practices with his.

The emails were first reported by Buzzfeed News.


Powell is a respected retired general who served under Republican presidential administrations. He tells BuzzFeed that he doesn't deny the emails' authenticity.

And in a later statement to NBC News, Powell says "the hackers have a lot more" of his emails.
