(National Sentinel)Â Authoritarians: Famed constitutional law professor Alan Dershowitz on Sunday criticized efforts by Democrats and some mainstream psychologists to cast President Donald J. Trump as being mentally unfit.
During an interview withÂ Fox News‘ “Fox & Friends” program, Dershowitz lashed out at the effort to paint Trump as unstable so as to lay the groundwork for a future impeachment.
As reported byÂ The Gateway Pundit, “Democrat members of Congress are plotting with a group of psychiatrists led by Dr. Bandy X. Lee to conduct a medical coup to remove…Trump from office, according to interviews given this week by Lee.”
The site noted further:
Lee, who claims Trumpâ€™s presidency could be â€œthe end of humankindâ€, has already decided Trump should be removed from office. A â€˜go teamâ€™ of medical professionals is being assembled to swoop in and forcibly remove Trump to evaluate his fitness for office, according to Lee.
In meetings with Democrats and one Republican last month, Lee argued, “Heâ€™s going to unravel, and we are seeing the signs.â€
Lee’s and Democrats’ efforts are dangerous in and of themselves, argued Dershowitz, who said their tactic smacks of authoritarian regimes.
“Itâ€™s very dangerousâ€¦ Thatâ€™s what they did in Russia,” he said. “Thatâ€™s what they did in China. Thatâ€™s what they did in apartheid South Africa.
“How dare liberals, people on the Left, try to undo democracy by accusing a president of being mentally ill without any basis. The 25th amendment doesnâ€™t apply,” he continued.
“Everybody knew who Donald Trump was when they elected himâ€¦ he hasnâ€™t changed in office and this idea of diagnosing him instead of opposing him politically poses an enormous danger to our democracy,” he said.
Critics of the Democrat-led effort claim it is just the latest attempt to negate the November 2016 election results after failing to do so with allegations of Russian collusion and election fraud.
