A former Republican senator from New Hampshire called on Democrats to support a bill that would evaluate President Trump’s psychological ability to hold office.
Gordon Humphrey sent letters to several Granite State Democrats to voice concerns over Trump’s “repeated contempt for informed and wise counsel” regarding North Korea.
A New Hampshire reporter published Humphrey’s letter to Rep. Ann Kuster (D-N.H.), in which he called Trump “sick,” “dangerous” and a man of “poor judgement, belligerence and reckless impetuosity.”
According to CP, the letter he wrote also stated Trump is similar to “Hitler,” and has a “seriously sick psyche […] could consume the lives of millions”:

Humphrey is pleading the left to support Rep. Jamie Raskin’s (D-Md.) bill, that requires the mental check-up of Trump:
“If directed by Congress… the Commission shall carry out a medical examination of the President to determine whether the President is mentally or physically unable to discharge the powers and duties of the office,” Raskin’s bill reads.
There are a few other lawmakers, who agree the bill should be passed, including Reps. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Texas) and Maxine Waters (D-Calif.). These have also asked for Trump’s impeachment, not the evaluation alone.
