As you may be aware, there are some suspicions being raised about Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid’s “accident” in which he broke his face and fractured some spare ribs.
Reid claimed that a rubber exercise band he was using suddenly broke and graduated into a giant sling shot, hurling him like a human projectile into a cabinet. This, naturally, sounded suspect, especially given that he was injured January 1. Some wondered whether maybe in fact Harry had gulped down a few too many Manhattans while welcoming in 2015 and fallen down the stairs.
The story, it turns out, is much more sordid and upsetting. Harry’s injuries were in fact the result of an attempted coup d’etat by his Senate second in command, Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin of Illinois.
The awful moment was captured on video obtained exclusively by White House Dossier. In the footage below, Durbin can be seen on the right. Reid is the figure strolling innocently on the left.
Until . . .
The result, as you can see was quite nasty. Reid is even tougher to look at than he was before the injury.
Durbin’s office declined to comment.
