Hillary Clinton collapsed and suffered a concussion? Really? How convenient. Now ‘m not one to buy into conspiracy theories, but it seems rather odd that she will now not have to testify on the Benghazi terror attack incident before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee as scheduled next week.
Yes, I know she was sick last week, or so she said, so a trip abroad was also cancelled. But it’s all very strange.
The State Department said Saturday that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton fainted and suffered a concussion, but did not specify when that happened or the circumstances surrounding the incident.
She will not testify this week before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about the Sept. 11 attacks on Benghazi as scheduled, a Senate aide said.
Clinton, 65, cancelled a trip to the Middle East and North Africa earlier this week because she had been suffering from a stomach flu.
Clinton’s fainting episode took place earlier this week, State spokesman Philippe Reines said Saturday, although he did give additional details. On Thursday, asked by POLITICO during the day if she’d been hospitalized, Reines responded only that evening that she had seen her doctors and was home, without additional details. He said Saturday she was not and never had been hospitalized.
Reines did not respond to questions about why Clinton’s fainting was not disclosed sooner.
According to Reines’s Saturday statement, Clinton fainted while she was dehydrated and suffered a concussion when she fell. She is now recovering at home and is being attended to by doctors, he said.
I still think she took the fall for Barack Obama on Benghazi, and both know far more about dropping the ball than they are willing to admit.
That said, I wish her a speedy recovery.
