Clinton’s Clot, Ctd

A reader absorbs the latest update:

I am surprised at how very little we know of Hillary Clinton's condition.  From what I understand, she has a sinus venous thrombosis, which floored me.  My father died of this very thing seven months ago. It is extremely rare and often points to another, more serious problem.  Just wanted to put that out there since not much is known about the condition in the general public or the media.  Her clot obviously has been caught much earlier than my father's, but I wonder if there isn't something else going on with her health that is very grim. Hopefully, the answer is no, but I am concerned given what I know of this seldom seen issue.


The first thing I thought was that should – God forbid – Hillary Clinton die from this, the wingnuts would accuse the Obama administration of killing her to keep her from testifying.

Blessedly she is expected to make a full recovery.
