Bandy X. Lee has been ringing the alarm bell for three years. Now she’s wheeling out the gong.
The Yale University forensic psychiatrist published a book in 2017 called “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump,” in which she and more than two-dozen other mental-health experts warned -- despite the “Goldwater rule,” which prohibits psychiatrists from diagnosing someone they have not personally examined -- that the new president’s mental capacity was in doubt.
Lee and her colleagues have now pored over former special counsel Robert Mueller’s 448-page report into Russia’s election interference and President Trump’s “obstructive behavior,” and used it to put together a new mental-health analysis of the president. The information in the Mueller Report, they concluded, is even better than a personal clinical examination of the president.
In their analysis, Lee told Raw Story this week, “we highlighted the greater importance of collateral information in a functional, not diagnostic, exam -- in other words, reports on [Trump’s] capacity to fulfill the duties of his office by co-workers and close associates are more valuable than a personal interview, which can distort the actual situation by presenting a desired scenario of events rather than reality.”
“In sum,” the mental-health experts wrote in their Mueller Report analysis, “[Trump] failed every criterion of sound mental capacity to make rational, reality-based decisions, which are critical to functioning in the role of President.”
