Yale psychiatry professor Bandy Lee is back again, this time calling on Nancy Pelosi to force President Trump into an “involuntary evaluation” on his mental health.
Bandy Lee has been at the head of outrageous efforts to diagnose President Trump with mental health disorders since he took office and has authored a book titled The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump.
A few months ago, she was part of a group of psychiatrists who offered to testify against Trump’s capability to lead as president in the Dems’ first impeachment hearings (which never came to pass.)
Now, she’s wanting to take things a step further, claiming that Pelosi “has the right” to force Trump to – against his will – undergo psychiatric evaluations.
See for yourself:
Here's more from Bandy Lee's interview with Salon:
A Yale psychiatrist who has repeatedly sounded the alarm about President Donald Trump’s mental health has cautioned that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is not doing enough to respond to the danger it poses.
Bandy X. Lee, a professor of psychiatry at the Yale University School of Medicine who serves as president of the World Mental Health Coalition, began warning about the dangers posed by the president’s mental health before his election. Lee then edited the book "The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President" and convened a conference on the president’s mental health at Yale shortly after the president's inauguration. She was recently joined by psychiatrists across the country in calling for the Judiciary Committee to convene a panel of mental health experts to weigh in on the ongoing impeachment proceedings.
Lee also “translates” some of Trump’s tweets on her own Twitter feed, which she described to Salon as a “public service.” Lee said she wants her “translations” to help readers see past Trump’s efforts to muddle reality with his “negative influence.” She recently “translated” Trump’s scorching six-page letter to Pelosi accusing her of trying to “steal the election” ahead of the House vote to impeach him in a Medium post.
Arguing that the letter effectively serves as a “confession," Lee said that Trump’s letter was an example of the president projecting his own motives onto Pelosi. But Lee warned that Pelosi has not done enough to respond to the president.
“As a coworker, she has the right to have him submit to an involuntary evaluation, but she has not,” Lee told Salon. "Anyone can call 911 to report someone who seems dangerous, and family members are the most typical ones to do so. But so can coworkers, and even passersby on the street. The law dictates who can determine right to treatment, or civil commitment, and in all 50 U.S. states this includes a psychiatrist.
"The advantage of a coworker starting this process is that a court can mandate a mental capacity evaluation before the dangerous person returns to work," Lee continued. "The committing physician is preferably the patient's treater, but does not have to be."
While Lee added that Pelosi’s strategy of withholding the articles of impeachment from the Senate has been effective, she also warned that the delay risks making Trump even more dangerous.
“I am beginning to believe that a mental health hold, which we have tried to avoid, will become inevitable,” Lee said.
WND also said the following on this:
Yale psychiatry professor Bandy Lee, who long ago who created a campaign to diagnose President Donald Trump by long-distance, while randomly lashing out with accusations about his mental health, is back.
Now Lee wants House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to order the president into an "involuntary evaluation."
Lee was one of a team of leftists who months ago volunteered to advise Democrats that Trump is not qualified to be president.
At the time, Lee released a statement attacking the president: "We think that hearing about mental health aspects in the context of the impeachment hearings is critical, partly because, for the past 2.5 years we have been very deeply concerned about mental instability of the president, and pretty much all that we have said has born (sic) out to be true," wrote Lee at the time.
Now, in an interview with Salon, Lee has raised the prospect of ordering the president into an evaluation for force, in fact, an "involuntary evaluation."
Pelosi, Lee claimed, "has the right" to force Trump into such a review.
"I am beginning to believe that a mental health hold . . . will become inevitable," Lee told the publication.
Lee, on the staff at Yale School of Medicine, started making long-distance diagnostic accusations about the president even before he was elected.
Later came Lee's work on a book called "The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump."
In it, various "mental health experts" give their opinions, all negative, on the 45th president.
"As a coworker, she [Pelosi] has the right to have him submit to an involuntary evaluation, but she has not," Lee claimed in the Salon interview. "Anyone can call 911 to report someone who seems dangerous, and family members are the most typical ones to do so. But so can coworkers, and even passersby on the street. The law dictates who can determine right to treatment, or civil commitment, and in all 50 U.S. states this includes a psychiatrist."
The psychiatrist intent on involuntarily removing Trump from office continued, "The advantage of a coworker starting this process is that a court can mandate a mental capacity evaluation before the dangerous person returns to work. The committing physician is preferably the patient's treater, but does not have to be."
Lee was among those who earlier volunteered to abrogate medical association ethics codes that discourage or even ban doctors from discussing or diagnosing people they have not met with personally by continuing to publicly rant about the president.
