Questions on Hillary's Health Loom Larger Than Ever in Wake of New Leaks

From inquiries about powerful drugs to how to treat "cracked heads" to friends asking Hillary if she's "resting comfortably."

There's more on the Hillary Clinton health front and it's bizarre to say the least. Here's a quick recap of the latest revelations, which will likely provide more questions than answers when it comes to just how afflicted the Democratic presidential nominee may or may not be. 

One of the more interesting puzzle pieces in the Clinton health odyssey concerns the following email just released by Wikileaks. The email, sent in 2011 by Clinton State Department staffer Jacob Sullivan to Mrs. Clinton directly, detailed a powerful drug called Provigil. The drug, according Sullivan, "is used to treat excessive sleepiness caused by narcolepsy or shift work sleep disorder (sleepiness during scheduled waking hours among people who work at night or on rotating shifts)."

It is "often prescribed to treat excessive sleepiness in patients with Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and multiple sclerosis. Additionally, it has also gained a following among students, truckers, and others who want to stay awake for extended periods of time. Sullivan noted that according to his research, Provigil is at times also used to counter fatigue among pilots during U.S. Air Force combat missions. 

The email does not make clear why he sent Mrs. Clinton the information about Provigil, nor does it include her response, if there was one. 

Another leaked email follows below from longtime Clinton-acolyte Sydney Blumenthal, who in 2009 writes that he hopes Hillary is "resting comfortably":


 

 

For reference, 2009 is when Hillary Clinton suffered her second deep-vein thrombosis. 

Questions about Hillary Clinton's health, however, have been looming large for years. Last week Dr. Drew Pinsky said that after reviewing her medical records, he is "gravely concerned" about Clinton's health. The Left was quick to dismiss Dr. Drew as a celebrity "hack doctor," which is funny considering just a few weeks earlier they were practically begging him to diagnose Donald Trump with a mental health disorder. 

The Left is also mum on the fact that Rutgers University Professor of Medicine Bob Lahita said that while he may not agree with all of Dr. Drew's conclusions, they should not be dismissed. The Fox News interview clip featured above, Dr. Lahita said the fact that Clinton had two bouts of thrombosis is "disconcerting to say the least."

Another "disconcerting" email provided by Wikileaks reveals that another of Clinton's State Department advisors, Phillippe Reines, contacted the NFL Commissioner back in 2012 to inquire about the treatment of severe head injuries. He relayed that information to Mrs. Clinton in the email thread which also contains jokes about the Secretary of State's "cracked head":

In addition these latest details, critics of Clinton are still pointing to her coughing fits and what appear to be unsteady moments on her feet, as further proof that the candidate's health is less than stable.
