A Yale psychiatrist tweeted then deleted a post on Monday in which she compared incumbent President Donald Trump‘s “competence” to that of Adolf Hitler, the dictator of Nazi Germany.

“Donald Trump is not an Adolf Hitler,” the deleted tweet from Dr. Bandy X. Lee read. “At least Hitler improved the daily life of his followers, had discipline, and required more of himself to gain the respect of his followers. Even with the same pathology, there are varying degrees of competence.”

Read the screenshot of the tweet captured before its deletion:

After deleting the controversial tweet, Dr. Lee posted a three-part thread where she attempts to explain her intent behind it but does not apologize for having posted it in the first place.

“Okay, I have taken it down, since it has upset so many people and was not provoking thought but the opposite,” she wrote. “Of note, my statement was about how little Donald Trump believes he needs to do to retain his followership, NOT to minimize Adolf Hitler’s atrocities.”

Continuing, she said: “If we cannot look at parallels in history and learn from them, we are truly poised to repeat it. I say so in heartbreak for the 11+ million lives lost, not in their minimization (currently, we are looking at 7 billion at risk, without exaggeration if we soberly thought of it).”

“I know most of you understood, and I appreciate it!” she added.

Dr. Lee is known for her public comments critical of the president’s mental health. Most notably, she co-authored a book in 2017 titled “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump,” which is comprised of essays that allege President Trump has mental instability that make him dangerous. The publication of this book led to her and her colleagues receiving many death threats, she reported.

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
