Forensic psychiatrist Dr. Bandy X. Lee has become a well-known figure over the past three years, issuing frequent warnings about what she describes as Donald Trump's "mental pathology," which she has said puts the U.S. in danger. She has also served as editor of the book, The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, in which 37 mental health professionals offer their own analyses of Trump's mental state.
But Lee is now the target of a "grievance" by one of Trump's most outspoken defenders, retired Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz. Dershowitz has reportedly taken his complaint against Lee to Yale Law School and School of Medicine, where Lee has been employed, according to Raw Story.
Dershowitz has accused Lee of "a violation of psychiatric ethics" when she described him as having a "shared psychosis" with Trump. He also, in one published essay, accused Lee of "unethical conduct" for her description of Trump as "psychotic," as quoted by Raw Story.
Lee has now responded to Dershowitz's accusations on her Twitter account, saying that because Trump has access to and authority to use nuclear weapons, his mental state poses a "public health emergency."
"I cannot think of anything that is more my business right now," she wrote, speaking as a mental health professional and "violence expert."
