Former special counsel Robert Mueller seemed confused, aged, and possibly suffering from mental deterioration during a disastrous appearance before the House Judiciary Committee.
This hurts the Democrats in two ways: First, it has become the story of the hearings, not President Trump, or “Trimp,” as Mueller referred to him at one point.
Second, it raises questions about just who was in charge of the Mueller investigation — whether it was driven by the Democratic staffers he hired or by an aging man not up to the task.
He didn’t even seem particularly familiar with his own report.
This is completely backfiring on the Democrats. It’s like when the prosecution told O.J. Simpson during his trial to try on the glove he used in the murders, and it didn’t fit.
Trump, unsurprisingly, was delighted.
