Doctor Says ‘No Evidence’ That McConnell Experienced Seizure or Stroke in Latest Freeze

By Published on September 5, 2023

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell did not suffer a stroke or seizure after his latest freeze in public, according to a doctor’s note released by his office on Tuesday and shared with the Daily Caller News Foundation.

McConnell, aged 81, froze during a press conference in Kentucky on Aug. 30 and was unable to continue speaking before being led away, the second such instance that has occurred in public. After McConnell’s office published a note from the Attending Physician of Congress that cleared him to continue his public schedule, his office published a second note on Tuesday that clarified the freeze was not the result of a seizure or stroke.

“There is no evidence that you have a seizure disorder or that you experienced a stroke, TIA or movement disorder such as Parkinson’s disease,” wrote U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Brian Monahan, the Attending Physician of the United States Congress, in a note addressed to McConnell. The note also indicated that Monahan had examined McConnell’s health extensively after the fall, including “brain MRI imaging, EEG study and consultations with several neurologists for a comprehensive neurology assessment.”

“There are no changes recommended in treatment protocols as you continue recovery from your March 2023 fall,” Monahan wrote.
