Clinton’s doctor: Hillary has pneumonia but she’s ‘recovering nicely’ after Sunday episode

Published

on

Dr. Lisa R. Bardack, personal physician to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton released a statement Sunday afternoon in the wake of Clinton’s attack of light-headedness during a morning ceremony remembering the victims of the terror attacks of Sep. 11, 2001.

CNN’s Dan Merica posted a section from Bardack’s statement on Twitter.

“Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies,” the physician wrote. “On Friday, during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia. She was put on antibiotics and advised to rest and modify her schedule.”

“While at this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely,” Bardack concluded.

This morning’s incident has kicked off a fever of ghoulish speculation from conservatives eager to seize on any sign that their candidate might get an edge on the former Secretary of State, even if that means cheering for her illness and death.

After leaving the ceremony and taking a few minutes to compose herself in daughter Chelsea Clinton’s Manhattan apartment, the candidate emerged and waved to the gathered crowd.

Trump’s lie about ‘doctored’ impeachment transcripts debunked by impeachment witnesses’ lawyers

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Monday falsely accused Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) of releasing "doctored" transcripts of impeachment inquiry witnesses and then bizarrely suggested that Republicans release their own versions of the transcripts.

"Shifty Adam Schiff will only release doctored transcripts," the president wrote on Twitter. "We haven’t even seen the documents and are restricted from (get this) having a lawyer."

Trump presented no evidence to back up his claim that Schiff had done something to alter the transcripts, which show that multiple administration officials testified that the Trump administration was withholding aid to Ukraine until its government agreed to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.

Trump-appointed judge delivers major blow to president’s efforts to keep his taxes secret

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Monday suffered yet another legal defeat in his quest to keep his tax returns a secret -- and it came at the hands of one of the president's own appointees.

CNN reports that Trump-appointed Judge Carl Nichols the of United States District Court for the District of Columbia has ruled that the president cannot sue the state of New York in his court to prevent the release of his taxes.

In his ruling, Nichols found that Trump's attorneys failed to establish a so-called "conspiracy jurisdiction" based on his accusations that New York Attorney General Letitia James is a co-conspirator with House Democrats in a plot to improperly reveal the president's personal financial information.
