Raw Story spoke with Yale psychiatrist Dr. Bandy X. Lee, who concurs with that assessment, and has also argued that President Trump suffers from a uniquely dangerous pathology that will end up wrecking the country.

Lee is a forensic psychiatrist and an expert on violence at Yale School of Medicine. She is  editor of the New York Times bestseller, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 37 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President.” She and her coauthors recently prepared a mental health analysis of the Mueller report.  Next week, they will present their analysis at a town hall-style meeting on Capitol Hill as well as unveil five questions they would like to ask Special Counsel Robert Mueller at his testimony the following day (for more information, visit: dangerouscase.org).

Pelosi believes she has the option to start impeachment or to just let Trump continue his train wreck. Impeachment, she thinks, is never an obligation. She is dead wrong. The man is a dangerous threat to the world and MUST be removed from office as quickly as possible.

Not if Pelosi and the Republicrats have anything tp do with it.

Their corruption and cowardice will ensure that we will be re-trumped.

Where was this alleged psychiatrist when Obomber was in office, butchering people left right and center via Drone, even American citizens ????????? Where was her diagnosis then ???

Why has she come out of the wood work just to critisise Trump, there's a whole host of people she should be rolling up altogether in her diagnosis, not just Trump.

That is if she's not a biased Tool.

Very valuable article! Here is the part that caught my attentions:

It is a common psychological phenomenon. Those around a mentally impaired person who is unable to face facts will often give into that person's wishful narrativethe sheer drive is often difficult to overcome. Entire households and entire nations can be vulnerable. This is why it is extremely important to prevent those who show signs of mental pathology from taking over powerful positions and why this is a public health problem."

"Given the situation, in line with our societal responsibility as outlined in our professional ethics, we performed a mental capacity evaluation of the president with the information that Mr. Mueller provided. The wealth and quality of relevant information in his report made this possible. Having such high-quality reports, by both allies and opponents, allowed us to answer every question in a capacity evaluation with uncommon confidence. A personal interview is not as relevant in a functional exam. As someone recently said, you do not need to diagnose whether someone is drunk, has a brain tumor, or is not wearing one's glasses to know that the person should not be driving. It is more useful to interview other drivers who witnessed the dangerous driving.

We explain this in a video op-ed of our report on the Mueller report, but we will go into greater detail at our town hall on Capitol Hill on the day before his testimony, on July 16, with details on our web site, dangerouscase.org. The public will have a chance to tune in and enter their questions, which we will try to answer, alongside questions from lawmakers."
