Sailor attempted to wrongly access Biden's medical records

A sailor searched for and attempted to view President Joe Biden's medical records three times in February, but was unsuccessful, according to a CBS News report.

The unnamed junior Navy sailor searched the Genesis Medical Health System's database for the president's information, but pulled up the wrong "Joe Biden," U.S. officials told CBS News. Navy Cmdr. Tim Hawkins told CBS News the medical record system is secure and President Biden's personal health information was not accessed.

The Naval Criminal Investigative Services launched a probe into the incident and the sailor told them he looked up President Biden "out of curiosity," and was administratively disciplined.

President Biden's medical records are restricted and are not accessible through searches in the Genesis system, according to the report.
