‘No evidence’ McConnell had a seizure or stroke, Capitol attending physician says

Republican Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s attending physician said Tuesday there’s “no evidence” he had a seizure or a stroke when he froze up during public remarks last week.  “My examination of you following your August 30, 2023 brief episode included several medical evaluations: brain MRI imaging, EEG study and consultations with several neurologists for a comprehensive neurology assessment,” Dr. Brian Monahan wrote.  “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,” the letter said.  Monahan added there are “no changes recommended” in McConnell’s treatments as he recovers from his March 2023 fall.  The leader froze for more than 30 seconds while answering reporters’ questions in Covington, Kentucky, on Wednesday, just one month after his first freeze-up during a Capitol news conference before the August recess.
