Hillary Clinton would have to “stick to notes a little” closer at a campaign event because she was “still not perfect in her head,” top aide Huma Abedin wrote in an email to the Clinton campaign team on April 21, 2015.

In the email exchange, published by WikiLeaks on Tuesday, campaign aides discussed messaging on campaign finance related to reporters about Jeb Bush’s Super PAC operation.

After communications aide Jennifer Palmieri and campaign pollster Joel Benenson offers a few suggestions for talking points, Huma chimed in.

“She’s going to stick to notes a little closer this am, still not perfect in her head,” she wrote.


Hillary Clinton suffered a “cracked head” (her words) after suffering a fall in December 2012. Many have speculated about her health since that episode, and questions grew louder in September of this year when Hillary was caught on tape nearly collapsing at a 9/11 memorial event in Manhattan.

After initially blaming the health scare on “dehydration,” the campaign was forced to acknowledge the candidate had been diagnosed with pneumonia.
