Dr. Drew Pinsky was harassed by executives at the pro-Hillary network CNN to retract his comments questioning Hillary Clinton‘s health before he was fired from CNN’s sister network, HLN.

Dr. Drew received a barrage of nasty phone calls and e-mails from CNN executives, whose intimidation tactics were straight out of the Mafia playbook.

“CNN is so supportive of Clinton, network honchos acted like the Mafia when confronting Drew,” a source told the New York Post. “They demanded he retract his comments, but he wouldn’t. It was downright scary and creepy.”

When Dr. Drew refused to retract his remarks, CNN’s sister network, HLN, cancelled “Dr. Drew On Call,” a show he had hosted since 2011.

Pinsky was also viciously bullied on social media by Clinton supporters, so he’s now terrified to publicly confirm his firing was related to his comments about Hillary’s health.

“I just want them [Hillary’s supporters] to go away!” Dr. Drew told a friend after he was trolled online.

The trouble for Pinsky began Aug. 17, when the board-certified internist said Clinton may have suffered brain damage after her 2012 concussion, as evidenced by her use of prism glasses at the time, Celebrity Health Fitness reported.

Prism glasses are usually worn to correct double vision after head trauma, like the one Hillary suffered when she fell and hit her head.

Just 8 days after Dr. Drew made the observation, HLN cancelled this TV show.

While HLN claimed the decision was “mutual,” Dr. Drew fans felt the firing was punishment for questioning Clinton’s health.

Renewed concerns over whether Hillary Clinton suffered brain damage amped up after the former Secretary of State blamed her 2012 concussion and 2013 brain blood clot for her inability to remember whether she had been briefed on how to handle classified information.

An FBI summary from Clinton’s 3 1/2-hour interview on July 2 showed Hillary said “I don’t recall” or “I don’t remember” more than 40 times when asked about her secret, unsecured email server.

Among the implausible claims Hillary made included the following:

  • Clinton could not recall being trained on how to handle classified information.
  • Could not remember how data on her BlackBerry devices were destroyed after she left the State Department. The FBI discovered Hillary used 13 BlackBerrys several of which were destroyed with a hammer.
  • Could not recall when she first received her security clearance.
  • Could not remember conversations she had with staff about setting up her private, unsecured email account.
  • Could not recall briefings she received when she left office as Secretary of State because of her 2012 concussion.

Even President Obama’s former physician said Clinton should get her head examined due to her past traumatic brain injuries.

“I think she should’ve had a thorough neurological examination in 2016,” said Dr. David Scheiner, a Hillary supporter.  “We know what happens to football players who have had concussions, how they begin to lose some of their cognitive ability.”

In a 2015 letter, Clinton’s doctor, Dr. Lisa Bardack, revealed Hillary suffers from hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid gland).

Symptoms of hypothyroidism include:

  • Memory problems
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Depression.

Biographer Ed Klein, former editor-in-chief of the New York Times Magazine, said Hillary suffers from memory lapses, exhaustion, depression, hand tremors and blinding headaches.

Repeated bouts of insomnia have “sapped her energy,” Klein wrote in Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary. “She is exhausted and depressed a lot of the time.”

Update: Hillary says she has pneumonia, no one believes her
