Wikileaks: Emails Between Top Clinton Staffers in 2015 Will Spark More Questions About Hillary’s Health

The health of Hillary Clinton has been brought into question on numerous occasions both before and during this presidential election. While those who have asked whether Hillary has not just the stamina, but the health to serve as president, given her numerous documented health issues through the years, have been written off as misogynistic haters, it seems that her top staffers even questioned Hillary’s health in the fall of 2015.

Wikileaks revealed an email exchange between Clinton campaign chair John Podesta and spokesperson Jennifer Palmieri in which they were inquiring how bad was Hillary’s head. At the time, Hillary had one campaign event scheduled and the pair was concerned that she was so bad in the head that she’d have to rely on notes for it.

Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta asked in a September 26, 2015 e-mail, “How bad is her head?” The question was the only thing he asked campaign spokesperson Jennifer Palmieri in the message, which had the subject line, “Any sense of whether and when she wants to talk?”

Palmieri responded: “Don’t know. Huma left here about an hour ago. I just pinged again to ask about prep, haven’t heard back. She leaves at 6 pm for DC.”

That exchange was preceded by more than five months by an e-mail from close Clinton aide Huma Abedin. In a lengthy exchange about a Super PAC used by soon-to-be Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush and how the campaign should talk about “dark money in politics,” Abedin told Podesta, Palmieri, campaign manager Robby Mook and others, “She’s going to stick to notes a little closer this am, still not perfect in her head.”

Will this revelation bring up more speculation and concern about the health of Hillary Clinton?
