President Trump’s longtime doctor told NBC News that three men raided his New York office last year in February and seized 35 years of the president's medical records.

The details: Harold Bornstein reportedly said a Trump bodyguard later turned White House aide, a Trump Organization lawyer and a third man carried out the seizure, which left him feeling "raped, frightened and sad." NBC News reports that it occurred after Bornstein told The New York Times he had prescribed a medicine for Trump to stimulate his hair growth.

White House response: Press Secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed the NBC News report, calling the action a “standard procedure" for a newly elected president. She also disputes the characterization of former White House aide Keith Schiller seizing records as a raid.
