Senator John Fetterman, Democrat of Pennsylvania, checked into a D.C. hospital last night to be treated for clinical depression.
Fetterman’s chief of staff, Adam Gentelson, announced in a statement that Fetterman checked into Walter Reed National Military Medical Center late Wednesday to receive treatment for clinical depression.
In the statement, Gentelson will note that Fetterman has struggled with depression throughout his life but that his depression has become severe in recent weeks.
In 2022, The Gateway Pundit reported that Fetterman suffered a major stroke that nearly took his life months before the midterm elections.

Fetterman’s wife, Giselle, wanted privacy.
After what he’s been through over the past year, there’s probably no one who wants to talk less about his own health than John. I am proud of her for seeking help and getting the care she needed. pic.twitter.com/SfuwWTSUcG

Last week The Gateway Pundit reported Sen. Fetterman was taken to the hospital after suffering a mild headache.
Fetterman was later released and test results showed no new strokes had occurred.
A few days after his release from the hospital, The Gateway Pundit would report that the New York Times wrote a sympathetic piece on Fetterman claiming that the freshman senator could hear voices.
