Lawmakers on Capitol Hill secretly invited a Yale University psychiatry professor to talk with them President Donald Trump's mental state last month. Dr. Under recent guidance from the APA, it is "fine for a psychiatrist to share their expertise about psychiatric issues in general", but "member psychiatrists should not give professional opinions about the mental state of someone they have not personally evaluated", according to an APA blog post. Trump's not-normal presidency is no excuse for the normalization of this risky behavior.

Once more, for emphasis: You should not trust armchair mental health analyses, nor should you trust the people making them.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders criticized Bandey Lee's "shameful and funny" words. Dr. James Gilligan - another psychiatrist - an expert on studying and predicting violence, also made a presentation. "He is becoming very unstable very quickly".

"The congressmen said they were anxious about the danger that the president poses a danger for the country because of his mental instabilityy", Bandey Lee told CNN.

All but one of the lawmakers briefed were Democrats, and Lee declined to identify lone Republican attendee.

The second is the 25th Amendment, which provides for the vice president to assume the office of "acting president" if the vice president and a majority of the cabinet determine that "the president is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office". Lee, who specializes in public health and violence prevention at Yale, told Salon in an interview at the time: "We have an obligation to speak about Donald Trump's mental health issues because many lives and our survival as a species may be at stake".

Lee cited Trump's repeated referencing of conspiracy theories in his public statements as a troubling sign.

"As he is unraveling he seems to be losing his grip on reality and reverting to conspiracy theories".

Specifically, Lee pointed to Trump's verbal aggressiveness and his boasting about sexual assault on the Access Hollywood tape that was revealed during the campaign. On Aug. 23, former Central Intelligence Agency director James Clapper said he was questioning the president's mental fitness and was concerned over his access to nuclear codes.

The discussion on whether Trump was mentally fit to serve as president flared up again Wednesday, after he let loose with a series of tweets where he replied to North Korean leader Kim Jung Un's claim about a "nuclear button" on his desk, and that the country's nuclear weapons could reach all of the United States. Lee does not belong to a political party and says she is "uninterested in partisan politics". "Ideology doesn't interest me".
