Earlier this week, 198 emails between the State Department and Clinton Foundation were released.If it weren’t for the escalating concerns over Hillary’s health, none of the emails probably would’ve stood out. Because of those health concerns, however, just four words in one of those emails have sent conspiracy theories into orbit.
A mysterious 2009 email sent from top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin to then-chief adviser Doug Band has reignited conspiracy theories about the Democratic nominee’s health. The message was included in the 198 emails between the State Department and Clinton Foundation released by Citizens United on Wednesday.
In response to an email with the subject “Where are u,” Abedin responded: “We had a disaster.”

The email only adds more fuel to the raging fire surrounding the issue of Clinton’s health as speculation and curiosity are already grabbing the internet.
The email was sent on Aug. 28, 2009. Obviously, the “disaster” could be completely unrelated to her health and about something in her personal or political life. Still, people can’t help but wonder what Abedin meant.

Think there was a health episode here? The sad truth is that we’ll likely never find out. As seems to be the case with anything questionable surrounding Hillary’s health, the media will run with whatever her fourth version of events is, and we’ll never know the truth.
