Dr. Bandy X. Lee said Trump is "going to unravel, and we are seeing the signs" in a meeting with Capitol Hill lawmakers.

In a secret meeting, more than a dozen lawmakers sat down with Yale University psychiatry professor Dr. Bandy X. Lee to discuss President Donald Trump's mental health status, and the report was not encouraging.

Dr. Lee last month spoke with over a dozen Representatives and Senators – all Democrats, except for one Republican – telling them President Trump is "going to unravel, and we are seeing the signs," Politico reports.

In an interview, she pointed to Trump “going back to conspiracy theories, denying things he has admitted before, his being drawn to violent videos.” Lee also warned, “We feel that the rush of tweeting is an indication of his falling apart under stress. Trump is going to get worse and will become uncontainable with the pressures of the presidency.”

Dr. Lee and two other psychiatrists released a statement Wednesday on behalf of the National Coalition of Concerned Mental Health Experts, signed by more than 100 other health professionals, in response to Trump's tweet saying his nuclear button is bigger than North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's.

"We urge that those around him, and our elected representatives in general, take urgent steps to restrain his behavior and head off the potential nuclear catastrophe that endangers not only Korea and the United States but all of humankind.”
