Dr. Harold Bornstein, who served as President Donald Trump’s physician for more than three decades, told CNN on Tuesday that he was “robbed” when a White House aide arrived at his practice and retrieved the President’s medical records more than a year ago. The White House and a source familiar with the incident deny that account.
“I’ve been waiting, humiliated, for an entire year,” he told CNN’s Alex Marquardt outside his Park Avenue office. “How would you feel if you cared for someone for 35 years, they came and robbed your office?”
The White House and a separate source familiar with the handover of Trump’s medical records disputed Bornstein’s description of the incident as a “raid.”
“As is standard operating procedure, the White House Medical Unit took possession of the President’s medical records,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters during an afternoon briefing.
