Trump’s Bodyguard, Lawyer Raided Trump Doctor’s Office After He Admitted Prescribing Trump Hair Growth Drug
President Donald Trump’s former personal physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, says that Trump’s longtime personal bodyguard Keith Schiller, along with Trump Organization Chief Legal Officer Alan Garten and a third man raided his office in February 2017.
Bornstein, who was Trump’s personal doctor for more than 35 years, told NBC News that the “raid” took place two days after he told The New York Times that he had prescribed Propecia, a hair growth medicine, for Trump for years.
Bornstein said he felt “raped, frightened and sad” when the men came to his office to collect Trump’s medical records:
They must have been here for 25 or 30 minutes. It created a lot of chaos…
I couldn’t believe anybody was making a big deal out of a drug to grow his hair that seemed to be so important.
And it certainly was not a breach of medical trust to tell somebody they take Propecia to grow their hair. What’s the matter with that?
Bornstein said the men told him to take down a picture of himself and Trump that had been hanging on the wall in the waiting room.
Bornstein said he was not given a HIPAA release, authorizing the release of Trump’s records to Schiller, which is a violation of patient privacy law.
An unidentified source said there was a letter to Bornstein from then-White House doctor Ronny Jackson.
The White House, Garten and Schiller did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Bornstein said he is speaking out because of reports that Jackson will not return to his post of White House doctor after his failed nomination to head the Veterans Administration:
This is like a celebration for me.
