NBC News Reporter Robert Bazell Raises Questions Hillary Clinton Blood Clot May Not Be Related to Concussion

Despite an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton releasing a statement saying she is hospitalized due to a blood clot stemming from a concussion, the questions continue to swirl. Why hasn’t a statement been released by the New York Presbyterian Hospital?

The top science reporter for NBC News raised questions Monday about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s hospitalization, raising the possibility the blood clot causing isn’t linked to an earlier concussion.“It’s not exactly clear what is happening with Secretary Clinton’s health,” NBC News chief science and health correspondent Robert Bazell said.

“All we have is a statement from her office. The hospital isn’t saying anything and the statement from her [office] says that she had this blood clot that stemmed from the concussion and she’s being treated with blood-thinning drugs,” Bazell continued. “The problem is that usually when blood clots come from concussions, they can’t be treated with blood [thinners.] So either it’s not really related to the concussion and she’s got a blood clot in her leg or something, or there’s something else going on that we’re not being told. And right now, we’re just sort of seeking that clarification and hoping for the best as she’s being observed.” Source: Politico
