Hacked emails from an influential Democratic donor released Tuesday night by DC Leaks say Bill and Hillary Clinton privately refer to President Obama as “that man.”

An email from donor Jeffrey Leeds to former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell dated March 14, 2015, says the Clinton family “hates” the president for winning the 2008 election.

“I did read PEGGY [Noonan],” Mr. Leeds wrote in response to an email from Mr. Powell. “Now it turns out that other State people were on the Clinton email so none of their emails were captured by the government. 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.”

Screenshots of the exchange were posted on Twitter by The Intercept’s Lee Fang late Tuesday.

Other leaked emails, which were first posted by Buzzfeed and The Daily Caller, show Mr. Powell warning Clinton confidant Cheryl Mills not to involve him with Mrs. Clinton’s email server scandal.

“You really don’t want to get me into this,” he wrote in March 7, 2015. “I haven’t been asked nor said a word about HRC and won’t unless you all start it.”

When Mr. Powell was asked by Buzzfeed to confirm the authenticity of the emails, he said, “I’m not denying it.”
