Psychiatrists Organize Campaign to Declare Trump 'Dangerous' as Part of Impeachment Congressional Record

A gross violation of the 'Goldwater Rule' - the prohibition against diagnosis from afar.

Here we go, again. The ever-shifting coup tactics continue with the already failed 25th Amendment ploy.
"We are American psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals who have come together at this critical time in our nation’s history," the petition begins. "We believe there are important mental health issues that need to be understood and addressed with regard to the president, whom we believe poses unique dangers to the country and the world."

The pro-impeachment statement is one in a long line of psychiatric attacks on Trump, the petition explains. "A group of us first outlined our concerns at a conference at Yale School of Medicine in April 2017, when the majority of the public believed the president was 'settling in.' This was followed by a public-service book, The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 37 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President, which many say predicted the course of this presidency. Thousands of others joined us to form a professional association known as the World Mental Health Coalition."
But this a gross violation of the 'Goldwater rule:'
"the American Psychiatric Association (APA) policy against diagnosing a public figure without an examination or authorization.

The APA policy states that "it is unethical for a psychiatrist to offer a professional opinion unless he or she has conducted an examination and has been granted proper authorization for such a statement."
The consequence for such abuse is censure or revocation of their license, but will that happen? Of course not. When it comes to removing Trump from office, none of the rules apply. Just ask any Leftist and he will answer, "By any means necessary."
