Former President Bill Clinton is recovering from sepsis in a California hospital, according to reports.

Clinton, 75, was admitted to University of California Irvine Medical Center on Tuesday evening, Clinton spokesman Angel Urena said on Twitter.

Clinton went to the hospital after feeling fatigued (weak and tired). He was diagnosed with sepsis, a serious infection of the bloodstream

Urena said Clinton, who is fully vaccinated, was not diagnosed with Covid-19 and his infection is not heart related.

"He is on the mend, in good spirits and is incredibly thankful to the doctors, nurses, and staff providing him with excellent care," Urena said in a statement.

In a separate statement, Clinton's doctors said his white blood count is decreasing as his infection responds to intravenous antibiotics and IV fluids.

"The California-based medical team has been in constant communication with the President's New York-based medical team, including his cardiologist. We hope to have him go home soon."

Sepsis is a life-threatening infection of the blood that occurs when the immune system is weak, or in people with chronic infections such as pneumonia, kidney or urinary tract infections.

Bacteria can also get into the bloodstream after dental procedures (tooth extraction or dental implants).

Sepsis is not contagious. It can cause multiple organ failure and death if left untreated.

Clinton has a history of cardiac and respiratory illnesses.

In 2004, Clinton underwent quadruple bypass surgery, and in 2005, he underwent surgery for a partially collapsed lung.

In 2010, Clinton complained of chest pains and was admitted to a New York hospital where doctors inserted two coronary stents in his heart.

It isn't clear when Clinton received the mRNA vaccines, or if he received a third booster shot.

These two photographs, taken in NYC on Saturday, Sept. 11, shows the stark differences between the two political parties in America.

Pictured in one photo are (L-R) former President Bill Clinton and his wife, Hillary Clinton; former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama; and Joe Biden, the current U.S. President, with his wife, Jill Biden.

All are wearing black masks and appear solemn as they pay tribute to the thousands who died during the terrorists attacks on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

In the second image, former President Donald Trump, center, is surrounded by NYPD officers and firefighters as they pay tribute to the fallen heroes on the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 in NYC. There is not a mask in sight.

The two photos are symbolic of a nation divided by political and power struggles.

In one photo, many see a reminder that there is no hope for the future.

In the second photo, some see Americans celebrating freedom and the pursuit of happiness.

Trump didn't attend any ceremonies in NYC, but he visited the 17th police precinct in Midtown and a neighboring fire station.

The former president joked that he didn't need a mask to pose with New York City's finest to mark 20 years since the towers fell.

He signed autographs and thanked the men and women for their bravery and sacrifice.

A few miles away, the Bidens, Clintons and Obamas attended the annual ceremony at the 9/11 Memorial in Lower Manhattan.

It isn't clear if they met with any of the heroes who sacrificed their lives to save others on 9/11.

A judge unsealed damning documents from a 2015 lawsuit against Ghislaine Maxwell, who fought to keep the papers from seeing the light of day.

Jeffrey Epstein's longtime associate and madam was arrested on July 2 and charged with child sex-trafficking.

Epstein's one-time girlfriend is accused of luring young girls and teenagers to Epstein's Manhattan home and private island to engage in sex with the billionaire financier and his wealthy friends.

The documents confirm longstanding rumors of sexual misconduct against former President Bill Clinton, England's Prince Andrew, famed lawyer Alan Dershowitz, and others.

Of particular interest to President Trump's critics was a transcript of a deposition of sex trafficking victim Virginia Giuffre.

During the deposition, Giuffre was asked whether Trump ever flirted with her. "He didn't. That's what's inaccurate," she said.

When asked if she ever saw Trump on Epstein's home or infamous island, Giuffre replied, "Not that I can remember."

U.S. District Court Judge Loretta Preska ruled last week that the public was legally entitled to view the evidence against Maxwell contained in the lawsuit.

Linda Rose Tripp, whose secret tape recordings with Monica Lewinsky led to the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton, has died.

Tripp died on Wednesday, April 8, less than a week after she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She was 70.

Her husband Dieter Rausch and their daughter Allison Foley were at her bedside, according to DailyMail.com.

Secret recordings she made of her private conversations with Lewinsky exposed the then-President's sexual relationship with the former White House intern in 1998.

Her daughter, Allison, alerted family and friends to her mother's impending death in a Facebook post on Tuesday night, writing: "My mommy is leaving this earth... Please pray for a painless process for the strongest woman I will ever know in my entire lifetime."

Allison told TMZ that her mother's death was not related to the coronavirus.

Lewinsky reached out to the family on social media, tweeting: "no matter the past, upon hearing that linda tripp is very seriously ill, i hope for her recovery. i can't imagine how difficult this is for her family."

During her taped conversations with Tripp, Lewinsky (pictured) revealed she had enjoyed a sexual relationship with Clinton while she was an intern at the White House.

The secret recordings were handed over to special counsel Kenneth Starr in exchange for immunity from illegal wiretapping charges.

Tripp also informed Starr of the semen-stained dress Lewinsky said she wore during a sex act with Clinton in the Oval Office.

Tripp complained that her firing from the Pentagon at the end of Clinton's term in office was an act of vengeance. But the Clinton administration said it was standard procedure for a political appointee.

She was also involved in Paula Jones' sexual harassment lawsuit against Clinton in 1994. Jones claimed Clinton propositioned her for sex in 1991 while he was governor of Arkansas.

But Judge Susan Webber Wright ruled that a sitting President could not be sued until the conclusion of his term.
