Republican Rep. Gary Palmer (Ala.) isn't buying Hillary Clinton's pneumonia diagnosis. After seeing the way she coughed during the Benghazi hearing, Palmer said he's starting to wonder if this story is just another in Clinton's "pattern" of "misleading" the public. "They've tried to attribute the cough to bronchitis, they've tried to attribute it to pneumonia. But I sat in the Benghazi hearing for three hours, and she sat there and coughed her way through that," Palmer said in an interview with Alabama radio station WAPI on Monday. "You just look at the pattern and it just begs the question: Are we being lied to again?"
Palmer admitted he "can't say" what illness Clinton does have, but he has "serious doubts as to whether or not it's pneumonia." Regardless, Palmer insisted he doesn't "wish her ill" — though he did add that "if lying were a disease, she'd be terminal."
Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon maintained Monday that Clinton has "no other undisclosed condition" aside from the pneumonia, which the campaign disclosed Sunday after Clinton abruptly left a 9/11 memorial event. She will return to the campaign trail "later this week," BuzzFeed News reported, and Fallon said her campaign will release more detailed health information in the coming days.
