Former Yale psychiatrist sues after being fired for tweets about Trump's psychosis


A former Yale psychiatrist sued the university claiming she was fired for her tweets calling Donald Trump a danger to the country and denigrating those around him.

Assistant clinical professor Dr Bandy Lee claims he was threatened with dismissal in January 2020 after former Trump attorney Alan Dershowitz wrote to the university complaining about his comments on social media.
