Is Bill Clinton so ill he can’t travel?
Some reports say yes.
Or are they laying the groundwork for him to “disappear” before the indictments?
I report, you decide.
Here’s what The Globe has reported:

Yes, you might call that a tabloid fishwrap, but those tabloids have a way of being on the story before the MSM, don’t they?
Perhaps because they don’t take talking points from the same people?
Perhaps because they actually do more journalism than the MSM?
Just asking questions….
What’s not in dispute is that Bill Clinton did NOT attend Colin Powell’s funeral.
Hey, perhaps he didn’t want to get another one of those envelopes?

The Washington Examiner had more details:
President Joe Biden, two former presidents, and one former presidential candidate visited the nation’s capital Friday to attend the funeral of Colin Powell.
Biden and his wife, Jill, attended the funeral for Powell, the former secretary of state who died on Oct. 18. Former Presidents Barack Obama and George Bush, along with 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former first lady Michelle Obama, were also in attendance. Former President Bill Clinton was not able to attend due to recovering from an infection for which he was briefly hospitalized last month.

Bush, former first lady Laura Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton before the funeral for former Secretary of State Colin Powell at the Washington National
Powell, 84, died from complications with the coronavirus last month despite being fully vaccinated. As the United States’s first black secretary of state, he was appointed to the Cabinet post under the Bush administration from 2001 to 2005 and served as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under former President George H. W. Bush from 1989 to 1993
Perhaps he was too busy dealing with this?
"…Danchenko had worked at Brookings… under Strobe Talbott, a State Dept official in the Bill Clinton administration. Other Clinton and Obama admin alumni also worked at Brookings later, and Fiona Hill — who would go on to serve in the Trump admin…" https://t.co/yD3nhqmaeJ

Special Counsel John Durham indicted Igor Danchenko on Thursday, targeting a key source whom former British spy Christopher Steele allegedly used in the false Russia “dossier” against Donald Trump, and who worked at the Brookings Institution.
The Associated Press summarized the charges:
The five-count indictment accuses Danchenko, a U.S.-based Russia analyst, of making multiple false statements to the FBI when interviewed in 2017 about his role in collecting information for Christopher Steele, the former British spy who was paid by Democrats to investigate connections between Trump and Russia.
Danchenko functioned as a source for Steele, whose dossier of research was provided to the FBI and used by federal authorities as they applied for and received surveillance warrants targeting a former Trump campaign aide.
The indictment says Danchenko misled the FBI by denying a relationship with a public relations executive and longtime Democratic operative and supporter of Trump’s 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton, when he had in fact anonymously sourced one of his allegations to that person. He also is accused of fabricating details of a phone conversation with someone who, he said, had described a “well-developed conspiracy of co-operation” between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Danchenko was arrested Monday. The Wall Street Journal‘s Holman Jenkins described him last year as a “product of a regional Russian undergraduate legal education. At 16, he was an exchange student in Louisiana, later studying at Louisville and Georgetown. Aside from a three-year period writing legal documents for Russian trading firms, he made his career in the U.S. as an itinerant writer of business and political reports, including at Brookings.”
As the Epoch Times recently noted, Danchenko had worked at Brookings from 2005 to 2010 under Strobe Talbott, a State Department official in the Bill Clinton administration. Other Clinton and Obama administration alumni also worked at Brookings later, and Fiona Hill — who would go on to serve in the Trump administration — was shown the Steele “dossier.” During his time at Brookings, Danchenko became the target of an FBI counter-intelligence investigation; he was suspected of being a Russian spy.
