Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is suffering from a concussion after fainting. Below is a statement from her Philippe Reines, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State.
“While suffering from a stomach virus, Secretary Clinton became dehydrated and fainted, sustaining a concussion. She has been recovering at home and will continue to be monitored regularly by her doctors. At their recommendation, she will continue to work from home next week, staying in regular contact with Department and other officials. She is looking forward to being back in the office soon.”She won't be appearing in front of Congress to testify on BenghaziGate this coming Thursday.
And that's the story of how Hillary Clinton got a concussion. Doctors say she'll be fine, though. It happened earlier in the week, too. They just didn't tell us until today. That's how insignificant this is. No need for panic. She's going to work from home this week, but she's "looking forward to getting back into the office."
The only trouble is, Clinton was scheduled to testify at the congressional hearings about the Benghazi attacks on Thursday, but now she can't make it according to State Department aides who told the Associated Press. She could maybe testify at a later date? Maybe they'll go on without her.
Politico's Seung Min Kim reports her deputies William Burns and Thomas Nides will testify instead of Hillary.What a convenient time to faint and get a concussion.
