A panel of psychiatrists, among other health officials, is scheduled to testify this week before the House Impeachment Committee on President Donald J. Trump’s psychological and mental fitness to hold office, according to Washington sources familiar with the Democratic charge that he should be removed from office under provisions described in the 25th Amendment.
The Amendment stipulates members of the Cabinet can agree to notify Congress that they do not believe a president can carry out his or her duties. The officials could send a letter to Congress explaining why and, if Congress agrees by a two-thirds vote of both chambers, lawmakers could make the vice president “Acting President,” under Section 4 of the 25th Amendment.
The amendment has been invoked six times since it was added to the Constitution.
The psychiatric panel hopes to increase that number to seven. The Washington Examiner on Saturday reported that Dr. Brandy Lee, a Yale School of Medicine psychiatrist, said she and her colleagues would make themselves available to Congress, 2020 Democratic hopefuls, and Trump’s cabinet, ostensibly to support Democratic talking points.
The Examiner, however, did not mention that three of the four psychiatrists either worked for American intelligence agencies or are unabashedly linked to Democratic politicians at the heart of the impeachment inquiry.
In 1989, Dr. Allen Dyer, a Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at George Washington University, was recruited by the CIA to craft psychological profiles on politicians the agency thought hazardous to its existence. In 2006, Dyer helped Obama draft his Nixonian “enemies list,” a dossier of 200 political opponents that Obama felt might jeopardize his presidency. Dyer had penned a psychoanalysis on each of them that told Obama which of his “enemies” could be blackmailed or bribed to do his bidding. To this day, the CIA is still fiercely loyal to the Deep State President Barack Hussein Obama.
Dr. Allen Dyer is not the only intelligence stooge. Harvard educated Dr. John Zinner has worked for the CIA, FBI, and DIA, and was an uncredited actor in the U.S. enforced Libyan regime change in 2011. He was contracted by none other than Hillary Clinton to determine whether Saddam Hussein could be pressured into revealing the location of nearly 3 billion dollars of Libyan gold that he had hidden in the eastern Sahara. Two years later, he worked at a CIA “black site” in Afghanistan compiling profiles on Saudi Arabian officials. The testimony of any medical professional who worked for intelligence agencies and plans to give a damaging deposition on a sitting president must be rigorously scrutinized for veracity.
Also on the panel is Dr. James Merikangas, a neurologist in Bethesda, MA. In 2006 and again in 2012, Dr. Merikangas donated $5,000 to Democratic Political Action Committees, the maximum amount permissible per campaign finance laws. He is a friend to the Biden family, and in 2009 vacationed with the Bidens on Martha’s Vineyard and in the Bahamas. While donations and vacations are not criminal, his ardor to speak against Trump illustrates a pervasive political bias across the entire panel.
Dr. Brandy Lee, who is at the forefront of the panel, told the Examiner that President Trump lacks the mental capacity to fulfill his duties as President of the United States, and in an email wrote, “Trump is a danger to the country, and it’s our assessment that such dangers be removed one way or another.”
Further, Lee hastily admitted that panel members are paid consultants—paid by the DNC. The end goal, she said, is to guarantee that mentally unfit people do not occupy government offices. It is her opinion that psychiatrists have a civic impetus to warn the public when a president is whimsical, capricious, or dangerous, and she intends to validate assertions of mental instability by testifying to specific behaviors the president has displayed over the last three years—starting with the “chocolate cake” incident.
At a 2017 Mar-a-Lago dinner with Chinese president Xi Jinping, Trump ordered a cruise missile strike on an abandoned Syrian airfield while having a quixotic relationship with a particularly delicious piece of chocolate cake. Recounting the tale to FOX NEWS, the president said, “I was sitting at the table, we had finished dinner. We’re now having dessert—and we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you’ve ever seen—and President Xi was enjoying it.” Moments later, he forgot whom he had attacked, saying, “We’ve just launched 59 missiles heading to Iraq, and I wanted you [Jinping] to know this. And he was eating his cake. And he was silent.”
Dr. Lee said the above is but one example of Trump’s frenetic behavior, a pattern the president practices daily.
“There is a systemic problem in the Executive Branch, and it starts with Trump down. His actions are not those of a president but of a blithering, maniacal, temperamental man-child whose megalomania and grandiose sense of self-importance endangers the fabric of civilization,” Dr. Lee said.
She added that the panel believe Trump is “non compos mentis,” the Latin phrase for “Not in one’s mind.”
In closing, the author of this article does not believe a psychiatric evaluation of Trump’s actions—right or wrong—will aid the Democratic impeachment inquiry, as the Republican president is protected by an overwhelmingly majority Republican Congress that will most assuredly vote in his favor.
