While there’s overwhelming evidence to support Donald Trump’s impeachment and many examples of Trump’s criminal wrongdoing (obstruction of justice, emolument violations, etc.) there’s a crucial underlying condition that’s more dangerous than these — Trump’s deteriorating mental health.

In December 2017, Dr. Bandy Lee, a world renowned forensic psychiatrist, briefed members of Congress, warning that as job pressures increased, Trump’s psychosis would lead to ever increasing irrational, incoherent and dangerous behavior. Her findings were corroborated by several mental health experts. Congress ignored their warnings. Meanwhile, Trump’s mental decline intensifies.

As demonstrated by Trump’s recent delusional incoherent rant on Fox News, Lee notes Trump’s cognitive functioning, his ability to process information, has declined considerably.

Because his worsening condition includes “signs of impulsivity, recklessness and erratic decision-making,” Trump is a threat to the security of our nation and the world. (Example: On a whim, Trump allowed Turkey to massacre our Kurdish allies.) Clearly, because Trump is unstable, he should not have control of our nuclear arsenal.

Congress, particularly Republicans, must reject their blind allegiance to Trump, grasp reality and take immediate action to remove Trump from office before he creates more reckless disasters.

If Congress ignores Trump’s mental illness, dire consequences will result.
