Dr. Milton Wolf is casting doubt about Hillary Clinton’s alleged pneumonia diagnosis.

Hillary Clinton waves to the press as she leaves her daughter's apartment building after resting on September 11, 2016 in New York. Clinton departed from a remembrance ceremony on the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks after feeling 'overheated,' but was later doing 'much better,' her campaign said


In the letter Clinton released Wednesday “to allay concerns after her weekend medical scare,” her personal doctor stated she diagnosed the former secretary of state with “a mild non-contagious bacterial pneumonia” on September 2.

According to Wolf, no such strain of pneumonia exists. (RELATED: Hillary Clinton Releases Letter From Her Doctor About Her Health)

Wolf, who ran an unsuccessful bid to unseat Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts in 2014, tweeted Wednesday night that Hillary’s diagnosis is “pure fiction.” (RELATED: Nearly One Third Of Voters Doubt Clinton Will Live Long Enough To Serve A Full Term)

Wolf also retweeted a screengrab of an article from The Hill, discussing how “members of Hillary Clinton’s staff had pneumonia before” Hillary’s September 2 diagnosis.”
