Hillary Clinton and her campaign went to unbelievable lengths to cover up the fallout from her collapse at the 9/11 memorial ceremony in New York City.
Her campaign lied for hours about her condition.
And they refused to take her to the hospital.
After Hillary’s collapse, she was whisked to her daughter Chelsea’s apartment to receive medical treatment.
What was their reason to not take her to the hospital?
Her team feared that doctors, nurses, or other hospital employees would leak all the details about how, and what, she was treated for.
The New York Post reports:
“Secret Service protocol called for the Democratic presidential nominee to be rushed to a state-designated Level I Trauma Center in the wake of her Sunday-morning health crisis, sources said. In Manhattan, that would be Bellevue Hospital.
But a campaign operative decided to change course to avoid having Clinton seen by doctors, nurses and other medical workers who could leak details to reporters, according to a source.
In addition, Clinton’s van was supposed to be escorted by an NYPD detail, but the Secret Service whisked her away from Ground Zero before cops could accompany her, another source said.
The former secretary of state had told police officials that she didn’t want the escort at all, but the NYPD overruled that request, the source added.
NYPD Deputy Commissioner John Miller said Clinton’s “early departure was transmitted in real time by the Secret Service to the NYPD.”
Hillary’s health scare was so worrisome her campaign even violated Secret Service protocol.
Yet, it’s just that lack of transparency which has been the anchor around her ankle, dragging her poll numbers down the last three weeks.
At first, it only dealt with her lies surrounding the private email server she used to transmit classified information.
But now it is extending to her health.
Her campaign – and their allies in the press – tried to bat down these questions by labeling them as “conspiracies”.
When a NBC News reporter filed a story about a coughing fit Hillary experienced days before her collapse, Hillary’s campaign spokesmen, Nick Merrill, rudely tweeted the reporter needed to “get a life”.
Get a life.

But once it was known that her campaign repeatedly lied to reporters about the true nature of Hillary’s condition on 9/11, even more questions were raised.
So why did she slink off to Chelsea’s apartment to be treated in secret?
And just what were they worried would leak out regarding her condition or treatment if – as Secret Service protocol dictates – she was treated at hospital?
