The White House said Tuesday that President Donald Trump’s former bodyguard did nothing out of the ordinary when he took possession of the president’s medical records last year, despite a claim by Trump’s former doctor that the episode felt like a “raid.”
Harold Bornstein, Trump’s longtime personal doctor, told NBC News that Keith Schiller, the president’s longtime bodyguard and former director of Oval Office operations, showed up at his office in February 2017 along with two other men to collect the records, leaving Bornstein feeling “raped, frightened and sad.”
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders disputed the doctor’s characterization of the episode.
