Hackers have gotten hold of some of former Secretary of State Colin Powell's emails.

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

The hacked and leaked emails reveal a frustrated Powell, who was trying to stop being pulled into the Clinton email scandal.

In one message, Powell said: "I have told Hillary's minions repeatedly that they are making a mistake trying to drag me in, yet they still try".

In another, he wrote he threw a mini tantrum at a Hampton's party to try and get her staff's attention. In other emails obtained by Buzzfeed, Powell calls Republican Donald Trump a national disgrace and an international pariah.
