Attending Physician Brian Monahan wrote this week that there’s “no evidence” that Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has a seizure medical condition or had a stroke after an event on August 30 when he seemed to freeze.
“I conducted a thorough medical examination of you after your brief incident on August 30, 2023, which included an MRI of the brain, an EEG analysis, and consultations with multiple neurologists to get an in-depth neurology assessment,” Monahan wrote in the cover letter to McConnell.
The physician wrote, “There is no proof that you’re suffering from a seizure disorder or that you’ve had a stroke, TIA, or even movement disorder like Parkinson’s disease. Treatment protocols should not be changed,” says the doctor.
Last week, McConnell froze up during a press conference in Kentucky. This was his second scary episode in a little over a month after something similar happened at the U.S. Capitol.
A representative for McConnell informed Breitbart News, “Leader McConnell felt dizzy for a moment and had to stop during the press conference he gave today.”
McConnell, who was 81 at the time, fell at a party in March and got a concussion. He was taken to the hospital right away. In April, doctors gave him the OK to go back to work.
The news about McConnell’s health comes as more and more people want him to step down.
“For crying out loud, the staff, family, and close friends of Senators Dianne Feinstein and Mitch McConnell are terribly harming both them and our nation.” Representative Dean Phillips (D-MN) wrote on X, “It’s about time for limitations on terms for Congress as well as the Supreme Court in addition to basic human decency.”
“This is a problem if it continues to happen, and there is no reason why one should believe it won’t. And let’s not forget that this isn’t just about Speaker McConnell. Obviously, we’re very worried about him, but we’re also worried about the senator from California and even our own president, who has had problems, as New Hampshire’s Republican governor, Chris Sununu, explained to CNN. “Unfortunately, age is currently having an impact on Washington, and not in a good way.”
The National Review wrote that McConnell should quit his job. The editors wrote, “A change in leadership doesn’t have to happen right away, but the wheels need to be turning.”
