Bernie Sanders, 78, says he will NOT release his full medical records a few months after a heart attack

  • The senator is clearly a favorite as a Democratic presidential candidate
  • Sanders would become the oldest president ever if he were elected – beat Trump, 73
  • He says that after doctor’s letters last year, no more documents would be released

Bernie Sanders refuses to release his full medical information despite a heart attack just four months ago.

The 78-year-old senator – who is clearly a favorite to become a Democratic presidential candidate – suffered a heart attack during a campaign event in October.

He had a blockage in one artery and two stents were inserted, his campaign said at the time.

Sanders excluded his complete medical records, even though he had previously said he would.

In September, before his heart attack, he said: “The American people have the right to know if the person they are voting for is healthy.

“And we will certainly release our medical records for the primaries.”

But he insisted on Tuesday night in a CNN City Hall in Las Vegas that letters from his doctors, released in December, stating that he was in good health would now suffice.

He said: ‘We have released as much as any other candidate.

“We have released two fairly detailed letters from cardiologists and we have released a letter from the head of the medical group of the US Congress, the doctors there.

‘So I think we have issued a detailed report and I feel good about what we have done.

“If you think I’m not in good health, come with me on the campaign track and I’ll introduce you to the three or four meetings we do every day.”

When he was pressed to clarify that he would not release his entire records, Sanders replied, “I don’t think so, no.”

The questions came when a new opinion poll in Washington Post-ABC showed that Sanders had increased his lead nationally by nine points to 32 percent, double the Democrats second choice, Joe Biden, who is 16 percent behind.

Sanders would be the oldest president ever elected if he was voted in the White House – he defeated Donald Trump who was 70 when he first took office in 2016.

During the 2016 campaign, Trump brought a letter from his doctor Dr. Harold Bornstein in which he said he was in “excellent physical health” and received normal results after a physical examination.

The letter said he had normal levels of cholesterol and blood sugar, but was overweight and almost overweight. It said a colonoscopy and chest x-ray had shown no problems and he had a low risk of prostate cancer.

Trump later boasted: “I am lucky to be blessed with great genes.”
