A Whole Bunch of Laws Were Violated by Trump’s Team if Dr. Bornstein’s Story is True

Dr. Harold Bornstein, the physician who famously gave President Donald Trump an “astonishingly excellent” health assessment, now claims that people representing Trump stormed into his office and took off with his files on Trump… …on Feb. 3, 2017, days after a news report came out featuring a disclosure from Bornstein that he prescribed the hair growth medication Propecia to Trump.

…At the very least, it would be larceny for stealing the files, if Bornstein allowed them into his office — which likely allows people to come in off the street — and didn’t specifically tell them to leave.

Then there’s the issue of Trump himself. If he instructed people to carry out a raid like this (the NBC report did not indicate that he did), he could potentially be charged with conspiracy.

The situation is even more complicated given the nature of what was allegedly stolen: private medical records. Such documents are covered by HIPAA, which strictly prohibits the unauthorized release of medical information. Bornstein claims that the men who raided his office did not provide any such release.
