Even Democrat Torquemada Rep. Adam Schiff now admits that the man who ran the investigation into whether Trump had ties to the Russians was a man not up to his job. Bob Mueller was elderly and visibly physically impaired. Of course, Schiff said nothing about it then. Only now.
But the Democrat lust to get Trump was so over the top that the details didn’t matter. Their only concern was revenge for Trump beating them in November of 2016. In a couple of years will the Harris administration admit that Joe Biden was mentally compromised during his tenure in office? Perhaps, thus prompting her use of the 25th Amendment. The parallels bear consideration. Mueller and Biden, two men not up to the job.
Merrick Garland is reaching Bob Mueller-levels of stammering at this point. Unimpressive. Unprepared. A deer in the headlights.

FNC: “Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said in his new book it was ‘heartbreaking’ to witness Robert Mueller’s mental state during his 2019 testimony on the Russia probe.
Mueller, 77, was appointed special counsel in May 2017 to oversee an investigation into allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. In July 2019, Mueller testified on his findings, which determined the Russian government did interfere with the election but that there was no evidence of Russian collusion with then-candidate Trump.
Schiff, chair of the House Intelligence Committee, said in his new book, ‘Midnight in Washington: How We Almost Lost Our Democracy and Still Could,’ that he regretted pushing for Mueller’s testimony after seeing it firsthand.”
“It was heartbreaking to see Mueller, this person whom I so admired, having difficulty answering some of the most basic questions,” Schiff wrote. “Even on a bad day, Mueller had been capable of performing better than ninety-nine percent of the witnesses I had heard testify in my decades of public service.
“But this was not the Bob Mueller I knew,” he continued. “Two years had brought a striking change, and I suddenly understood not only his own reluctance to testify, but the protective instincts of his dedicated staff. Had I known how much he had changed, I would not have pursued his testimony with such vigor—in fact, I would not have pursued it at all.”
“We heard from people who are very close to Bob Mueller, who found him a different person, a changed person, after two years of this investigation,” said Washington Post reporter Carol Leonnig in January 2020.
Was Mueller too addled to work? “I can’t answer that,” Schiff told NPR in an Oct. 10 interview. “I did understand immediately why his staff had been so protective and why they were so reluctant to have him testify. And I immediately told our members, ‘We need to cut down our questions. We can’t ask for narrative answers. We need to be very precise in what we ask. We need to have the page references of the report ready.’ And it was painful, honestly, it was painful. And if I had known, I would not have pushed for his testimony.”
