Democratic Donor in Leaked Email: Hillary 'Could Barely Climb Podium Steps'
Hillary Clinton's health was the subject of a 2015 email exchange leaked today between former Secretary of State Colin Powell and a Democratic megadonor.
The donor, Jeffrey Leeds, told Powell that he learned from Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) that Clinton "could barely climb the podium steps" at an event where they were both giving speeches.
Powell wrote back that he hadn't heard anything specific, but said “I think there’s something to it. On HD TV she doesn’t look good. She’s working herself to death. ... She will turn 70 her first year in office.”
Reacting to the exchange, Charles Krauthammer said the information is "third-hand" and if there are other reports of that he would take it seriously.
He said if there was an underlying condition to explain it, we probably would have heard about it by now.
"A physician has their license and reputation on the line. They are not going to lie for a client--well, perhaps they will--but the consequences are going to be very high."
