"Ernest Walter Saunders (born 21 October 1935) is a British former business manager, best known as one of the "Guinness Four", a group of businessmen who attempted fraudulently to manipulate the share price of the Guinness company. He was sentenced to five years' imprisonment, but released after 10 months as he was believed to be suffering from Alzheimer's disease, which is incurable. He subsequently made a full recovery."

This legal defence of the use of convenient medical diagnoses often reversible is sometimes known as Saunders syndrome.

The use has extended beyond his case.

I wonder if Clinton`s physicians are regretting their report that she is in robust health as it will limit Clinton`s legal eagles ability to avoid a custodial sentence due to ill-health.

No free ticket Hilary - it is all catching up with you.
