Nancy Brost: It begs the question

On July 2 Hillary Clinton experienced memory loss during her interview with the FBI on questions about her private server and classified communications.

She “couldn’t recall” being instructed on how to handle classified information or having signed any agreement regarding that subject. She also indicated there were a number of things she couldn’t remember about Benghazi because of a 2012 head injury.

As reported, on 35 occasions during the interview she either “couldn’t recall” or “did not recall” critical items. If this is true, then she may be suffering from a serious medical condition causing these memory lapses. This begs the question, how could she be our commander in chief if she cannot recall critical and important information from the past five years? What if she were not able to answer specifics from a meeting with the leader of Iran, or China, or Russia?

If there is a medical condition impairing her memory and judgment, she is not prepared nor qualified to be president.

If, on the other hand, none of these statements are true and she failed to tell the truth to the FBI, she is also disqualified.
