Obama offered to arrange secret medical exam for Hillary; health concerns revealed in new book

Powered by Topple

New York Times bestselling author Ed Klein is no friend of the Clintons and he is set to release his fourth book on the political family, which includes the remarkable claim that President Barack Obama is overly concerned about Hillary’s health and offered to help.

In what is being described in the Daily Mail as “exclusive new information regarding Clinton’s health,” Klein wrote:

“President Obama is so concerned about Hillary Clinton’s health that he recently offered to arrange a secret medical checkup for her at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

“Hillary declined the offer because she feared the media would find out about her Walter Reed visit and learn the truth about her medical condition—that she is suffering from arrhythmia (an abnormal heart beat), a leaking heart valve, chronic low blood pressure, insufficient blood flow, a tendency to form life-threatening blood clots, and troubling side effects from her medications.”


The former editor in chief of The New York Times Magazine bills himself as an investigative journalist who “exposes the lives of key power players in politics, entertainment and finance.” And Klein has had a particular interest in the Clintons since his first book on them in 2005.

Klein alleges that Hillary makes “secret medical visits” to the New York-Presbyterian Hospital and says the treatment for her medical issues explains other health concerns the candidate has experienced:

“Her doctors have prescribed Coumadin (a blood thinner) and a beta blocker to treat her arrhythmia and heart-valve problem. However, these medications have the side effects of making her drowsy and tired, and lowering her blood pressure, leading to frequent bouts of light-headedness and fainting spells.”

As for the alleged concerns Obama had about Hillary’s health, Klein said the Democratic nominee turned down offers of help in a desperate attempt to keep the public from learning about her challenges.

He goes on to suggest that Clinton may still suffer from “blinding headaches, exhaustion, insomnia, and a tremor in her hands.”

Klein also insisted that speaking about her health was the “ultimate taboo” for campaign staff.

Obama is not the only president concerned about Hillary’s health, according to Klein, who claims that her husband, former President Bill Clinton, fears the worst before election day.

“Bill’s worst fear, according to my sources, was that Hillary would faint at a critical moment in the campaign and reveal the truth about her physical condition. If people knew the full extent of her medical problems, they might question her fitness for the job of commander-in-chief. Everything had to be done to hide the truth.”
