This is not it.

Clinton team avoided ER to conceal details of her medical treatment

Hillary Clinton was headed to an emergency room following her frightening collapse at the Sept. 11 memorial ceremony — but detoured to daughter Chelsea Clinton’s apartment to keep details of her medical treatment under wraps, The Post has learned.

Secret Service protocol called for the Democratic presidential nominee to be rushed to a state-designated Level I Trauma Center in the wake of her Sunday morning health crisis, sources said.

In Manhattan, that would be Bellevue Hospital.

But a campaign operative decided to change course to avoid having Clinton seen by doctors, nurses and other medical workers who could leak details to reporters, according to a source.

In addition, Clinton’s van was supposed to be escorted by an NYPD protective detail, but the Secret Service whisked her away from Ground Zero before cops could accompany her, another source said.

So, her staff put political considerations ahead of the health of the candidate and she went along with it. That’s bad judgment, folks. They also put her safety in jeopardy by not following the established security procedures. Which means that her staff bullied not only the NYPD, but the Secret Service agents detailed to protect her.

The former secretary of state had told police officials that she didn’t want the escort at all, but the NYPD overruled that request, the source added.

NYPD Deputy Commissioner John Miller said Clinton’s “early departure was transmitted in real-time by the Secret Service to the NYPD.”

“There was no lack of communication, nor diminution of security,” he added.

Frontier gibberish folks. The Secret Service blew off the NYPD and raced to Chelsea Clinton’s apartment. Where Hillary no doubt received some magic elixir that rejuvenated her. Maybe Annacanapanatan, Enoch or Ireacon.  Then, right as rain, she retreated upstate to her residence.

Nothing makes people think that you have something to hide like when you try to hide something that happened in front of witnesses and the unblinking eye of the all too ubiquitous cameras.

After a long career as a field EMS provider, I'm now doing all that back office stuff I used to laugh at. Life is full of ironies, isn't it? I still live in the Northeast corner of the United States, although I hope to change that to another part of the country more in tune with my values and beliefs. I still write about EMS, but I'm adding more and more non EMS subject matter. Thanks for visiting.


  1. And they sent a body double out 90 minutes later… Makes one wonder how long/what they were actually treating her for and with… And yes, they did violate USSS protocol. Hospital is mandatory.

    • Mrs. EMS Artifact agrees with you about the body double. The only whole in that theory is that she spoke and that voice is hard to duplicate. Or at least, we think she spoke.
      From someone I know in Iowa who did a lot of dignitary standbys during the primary season, the Clinton people ignored USSS protocols all the time. The agents assigned to protect her didn’t seem all that dismayed about that.
