Hillary Clinton’s Doctor’s Note: She Is ‘Fit to Serve’

On Friday, Hillary Clinton issued a letter from her doctor, claiming that she is fit and healthy enough to be president of the United States, but the release came amid other information that continues to show improprieties with her secret email address used while she was Obama’s Secretary of State.

Clinton’s fitness letter came from Dr. Lisa Bardack, a physician in Mount Kisco, NY, whose office is near the Clinton’s home in Chappaqua, NY. The doctor claims she has been treating Clinton since 2001.

The doctor insists that Mrs. Clinton is perfectly healthy, with only minor maladies, but does note that she was treated for “a deep vein thrombosis in 1998 and in 2009, an elbow fracture in 2009 and a concussion in 2012.”

The latter injury occurred when Hillary experienced a fainting spell and fell, striking her head and suffering a concussion. She also developed a blood clot in her brain not long afterward.

The doctor continues, saying that follow-up visits after Clinton’s 2012 concussion showed that “Mrs. Clinton was found to have a transverse sinus venous thrombosis and began anticoagulation therapy to dissolve the clot.”

The doctor also revealed that Clinton wears special glasses with Fresnel Prism lenses to correct the double vision she got from the knock on the head.

Despite all this, the doctor says Hillary Clinton is fit enough to be president. “Mrs. Clinton is a healthy female with hypothyroidism and seasonal allergies, on long-term anticoagulation,” the doctor wrote. “She participates in a healthy lifestyle and has had a full medical evaluation, which reveals no evidence or additional medical issues or cardiovascular disease.”

“She is in excellent physical condition and fit to serve as president of the United States,” she said.

Meanwhile, more of Hillary’s secret emails were released on Friday, and in some estimations, the emails appear to be a violation of the U.S. code governing the unlawful removal and storage of classified information.

It seems likely that Hillary violated 18 USC 1924, which states that the unlawful removal and storage of classified information occurs when a government employee, “knowingly removes such documents or materials without authority and with the intent to retain such documents or materials at an unauthorized location.” The law sets punishment of a fine or prison term of “not more than one year.”

Sources say that the fact that Hillary’s lawyer has a thumb drive with these emails on it violates the law.
