Former First Lady Hillary Clinton’s health isn’t stopping her from her aim to claim the seat once held by her husband, Bill Clinton. Recent financial and health care documents appear to have been released in efforts to prove that Hillary can still serve as the President of the United States and combat accusations of secrecy.
Unlike certain other presidential hopefuls who seem to be engaged in the usual political mud-slinging, Hillary Clinton appears to be staying quiet and letting the facts speak for themselves. Others like Donald Trump and Lindsey Graham have taken very social media level attacks, as previously reported by the Inquisitr. When Lindsey Graham tried to defend former presidential hopeful John McCain from Donald Trump’s defaming statements, the latter resorted to giving out Graham’s phone number in a speech.
Graham responded with a video showing how to destroy your phone.
Hillary Clinton’s health and financial documents having been released, it appears she is attempting to show a degree of transparency. According to the Wall Street Journal, the Benghazi incident and her former secrecy left a mess she felt a need to counter.

Their tax statements revealed that much of Bill and Hillary’s wealth came from speech fees donated by financial service firms, and revenue earned through book sales. Because they filed it as wages and not investment income, the taxes were higher. The tax records went back to 1977 and included those of both Bill and Hillary.
Some expenses incurred were from regular medications due to Hillary’s seasonal pollen allergies and prior medical conditions. Dr. Lisa Bardack of Mount Kisco, New York, released a letter stating that Mrs. Clinton has been treated for a brain concussion, blood clots in her legs and brain, thyroid gland deficiencies, and a family history of heart disease.
Hillary Clinton maintains her health by taking a thyroid hormone to stabilize the issue, the anticoagulant drug Coumadin to prevent blood clots, Vitamin B-12, and antihistamine drugs for her allergies.
The brain concussion was revealed to be the result of a stomach virus Hillary has acquired while traveling abroad. She had returned home dehydrated and fainted, hitting her head. For a while, it caused her to need special glasses and raised health concerns. Bill had revealed that it had taken six months of serious work to recover, but in the end, the effects of the injury have been fully reversed.
After having been accused of extensive secrecy, Hillary Clinton’s health care and financial revelations have helped rectify the issue. Now she only needs to combat the lead that Jeb Bush and Donald Trump have gained toward U.S. presidency.
