Cardiologist says Hillary Clinton likely had an episode of syncope

Ethan Weiss, MD, writes in Forbes that Hillary Clinton likely had a case of syncope when video captured Secret Service agents assisting her to a van after a public appearance on Sept. 11. Weiss is a cardiologist and associate professor at the University of California, San Francisco.
