Clinton’s doctors discovered the clot Sunday while performing a follow-up exam, her spokesman, Philippe Reines, said. He would not elaborate on the location of the clot but said Clinton is being treated with anti-coagulants and would remain at New York-Presbyterian Hospital for at least the next 48 hours so doctors can monitor the medication.

“Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion,” Reines said in a statement. “They will determine if any further action is required.”

Clinton, 65, fell and suffered a concussion while at home alone in mid-December as she recovered from a stomach virus that left her severely dehydrated. The concussion was diagnosed Dec. 13 and Clinton was forced to cancel a trip to North Africa and the Middle East that had been planned for the next week.

Clinton was also forced to cancel Dec. 20 testimony before Congress about a scathing report into the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. The report found that serious failures of leadership and management in two State Department bureaus were to blame for insufficient security at the facility. Clinton took responsibility for the incident before the report was released, but she was not blamed.

Some conservative commentators suggested Clinton was faking the seriousness of her illness and concussion to avoid testifying, although State Department officials vehemently denied that was the case.

Lawmakers at the hearings — including Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., the Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman who has been nominated by President Barack Obama to succeed Clinton — offered her their best wishes.

The former first lady and senator, who had always planned to step down as America’s top diplomat in January, is known for her grueling travel schedule. She is the most traveled secretary of state in history, having visited 112 countries while in the job.

    • Other than Vice Foster, whose death was ruled a suicide by investigators and by the conservative Republican Special Prosecutor Kenneth Starr, there were NO unusual or, as you put it(misspelling the word), “wiered” deaths during the Clinton presidency. ALL THE GARBAGE SPEWED BY THE LIKES OF BOB GRANT AND RUSH LIMBAUGH AMOUNTED TO NOTHING — ZILCH, NADA, ZERO. Don’t all you Limbaugh ditto-heads ever get tired of parading your abysmal ignorance and conspiracy rants???

  1. she is probably anticipating a congressional subponea demanding she testify about the Bengazi fiasco. When she “recovers” and they subponea her again, she will discover some other machlah

    • Not every minute of every day . Just show up at the hearing like a big girl and tell us the truth about Bengazi. By inventing these transparent excuses, it looks more and more like she’s got something to hide

  2. Don’t forget, # 5, that Hillary’s mother married a Jew. If the Benghazi investigation continues, Hillary might get a heart-attack, terminal cancer,and an anneurism. However, She’s a Clinton and she will miraculeously recover!!!

  3. I cannot understand why they didn’t bring her to Maimonides Medical Center which they say us the “best” hospital in the nation.Why are people so narrow minded and go to Presbyterian or Cornell or Mt Sinai.

  4. To #9-“Insider” Correction- It was Hillary’s daughter, Chelsea, who married a Jew, and not her Mother. Incidentally, the vicious and derogatory comments directed against the Secretary of State, by a number of commentators, are disgusting; you should all be ashamed of yourselves, for your reprehensible comments!!

    • So if its no big deal and all a “snow job”, I can hope you personally experience such a snowstorm. I just checked the weather report for your circulatory system and such a “winter storm warning” was posted.

  5. She was a decent Senator. She was sensitive to the needs of her Jewish constituents. She worked hard as Secretary of State and now that she’s injured some of you behaimas can to nothing but curse her? Do you think Sharon’s blood clot is fake too? Shoitehs.
