One Small Point on The Medical Records

I had heard from a few people that during his somewhat notorious press conference back in January, Ronny Jackson had said that he didn’t have access to Trump’s medical records. From what I can tell this isn’t true – at least based on my review of the transcript. There is one point where Dr Jackson says “I have reviewed the president’s past medical records to the extent that they’re — have been made available to me and there’s nothing at all that’s concerning to me.”

This line is a bit ambiguous. It’s not obvious why you’d keep any records from your doctor. But in the course of the briefing, Jackson referenced various aspects of Trump’s medical history, earlier test results and so forth. So I see why people may have gotten this impression. Perhaps there’s something there. But I don’t see real evidence of it from the briefing. If you’re aware of some other reference to Jackson not having access to Trump’s records, please let me know.
