Yale School of Medicine’s Dr. Bandy Lee is the lead author of a letter signed by 150 mental health experts and sent to the FBI, to senators, and to a few media outlets. The letter calls for psychological and substance abuse evaluation of Brett Kavanaugh. "Some of the troubling signs that we saw were poor regulation of emotion, evasion of questions, exaggerated entitlement, which actually makes someone more likely to be capable of violating others’ rights. Other troubling signs that we’ve seen were paranoia, conspiracy theories, and an inability to have empathy for others. Those were some of the signs that we feel as mental health professionals, it is our duty to call out signs that are abnormal and signs that indicate possibly a troubling condition on the part of Mr. Kavanaugh."
