From FoxNews:

The State Department has released additional details about the purported concussion sustained by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, saying the incident occurred early last week at her home.

The agency said doctors diagnosed the injury Thursday and repeated it was the result of Clinton becoming being sick and fainting.

The doctors did not determine the concussion to be “severe,” a State Department official said on the condition of anonymity.

Dr. Lisa Bardack of the Mt. Kisco Medical Group and Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi of George Washington University said Saturday that Clinton was suffering from a stomach virus and fainted after becoming extremely dehydrated.

The 65-year-old Clinton is recovering at home and has been advised by her doctors to avoid strenuous activity and cancel all work events this week — including scheduled open testimony on Capitol Hill regarding the deadly terror attacks at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.

U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killing in the Sept. 11 attacks.

    My, my how convenient! Something always seems to get in the way of those that need to testify about Benghazi. Coincidence? I think not. Happens to often with this administration!

    You really start feeling like a melon head when these pieces of sh– tell lie after lie about their life and relationships with others. Look at Slick Willies Tax agendas and scraps with the law with his cronies? The Obama administration is a ditto.murder for hire, check his fatalities and affairs of the gonads. Hilary and Vince Foster were and item until Bill caught on and had him snuffed.

    What a joke, she doesn’t really think we are going to buy that line of crap. She better not run for office then cause of her head injury she surely would not be fit for being a President because we don’t know if she is thinking clearly.

    How very convenient got Hillary to come down with a “concussion” from a good week ago, and have us believe that her excuse of a head injury to avoid testifying on the Bengazi massacre is acceptable. What arrogance and direlection of duty.
    She, along with the other White House Jokes must think we are just gullible fools..
