    Capitol Physician’s Controversial Move: What’s Hidden in Mitch McConnell’s Health Report?

    The doctor who oversees the medical care for all 535 members of Congress is facing new scrutiny after he essentially gave Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell positive updates on his health.

    The criticism of Dr. Brian Monahan comes after he essentially gave the Kentucky Republican passing health grades after McConnell had two back-to-back “freezing” episodes, one during his weekly press conference in Washington, D.C., last month and the other at an event in his home state shortly afterward.

    Monahan’s rosy diagnoses “have drawn scrutiny and contradicted other doctors’ reported impressions of the top Republican’s condition,” Axios reported last week.

    “Monahan’s role as a medical doctor for Congress has gained more attention as McConnell has remained committed to staying in office following multiple health episodes this year,” the report continued.
