‘It’s Sad’: Giuliani, Pirro mull over Mueller’s ‘possible dementia’ theory

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s attorney, said Saturday that former special counsel Robert Mueller shouldn’t have been in charge of the Russia investigation.

While the former New York City mayor didn’t explicitly name the reason why he feels this way, both he and Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro suggested that Mueller’s age has left him a little gone mentally — almost as if he’s suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s.

This point surfaced while the pair spoke about the former special counsel’s stunning ignorance in regard to Fusion GPS. Testifying before Congress earlier in the week, Mueller revealed that he wasn’t  familiar with Fusion GPS — the firm whose opposition research was the foundation of his very investigation. Giuliani said that it was as if Mueller knew nothing about his own investigation.

Listen to part one of their discussion below, via FNC’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine“:

“There are either two explanations: He never read what his mandate was, or he didn’t know what his mandate was,” Giuliani said.

“He was nothing but a front, Mr. Mayor,” Pirro replied. “He was the shill. He was the beard. They picked him because he couldn’t understand it.”

Her remark fit with a theory that Mueller, a Republican, was just a figurehead and that Andrew Weissmann, a Democrat, was the individual who actually ran everything.

“When you look at him … doesn’t a responsible person come to the conclusion he shouldn’t be in charge of something serious?” Giuliani then said.

“Yeah, it’s sad,” Pirro concurred.

“It is sad,” the mayor continued. “Except the person I’m sad for is the president, not him. He shouldn’t have been there. He should at least have enough self-control to realize I can’t do this anymore. But how about the characters around him? Why didn’t they ever come forward and say, ‘Hey, Bob, you’re not up for this anymore.’ Why? Because they were the inmates running the asylum.”

“That is the deep state!” the Fox News host said in agreement.

Check out part two of their discussion below:

What remains unknown is when exactly Mueller began displaying signs of old age and mental breakdown. Did it start recently, or has it been going on since day one? And what about former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller special counsel in 2017?

“Did Mueller’s mental acuity recently fail or was it evident at the point then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed him?” commentator Adam Mill wondered in a column published last week.

Mill also brought up former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe who stunningly declared on Wednesday that Mueller had performed “exactly” as he’d expected.

“Director Mueller delivered exactly the performance that I think I and many people expected,” he said during an appearance on CNN. “He was obviously incredibly cautious. Did everything humanly possible to not go beyond the four corners of the report.”

He continued, “Think about the challenge of testifying under these circumstances after you already provided a 400-page statement on the matters that you’ll testify to. He was clearly trying to be very careful not to veer in any way from the phrasing and the facts and the terminology in the report.”

Listen below:

That was a remarkable comment to make given that even Mueller’s own die-hard fans have admitted that his performance before Congress was abysmal.

It makes one wonder …

“After watching Mueller in the hearings and learning of McCabe’s assessment that Mueller performed as he expected, it leaves one to wonder whether Mueller’s passivity and lack of engagement might have been desirable for the get-Trump team assembling to nullify the 2016 election,” Mill notes.

Like Pirro pointed out Saturday on Fox, it’s as if Mueller was just a “shill” and a “beard.”

Renowned conservative commentator Mark Levin theorized last Thursday that perhaps Mueller is suffering from dementia.

“Look, I’ve seen people with onset dementia — I’m not going to mock this man,” he said while speaking on Fox. “He obviously shouldn’t have been there. He should’ve never headed this investigation. I’m not making allegations, I’m not trying to be provocative, but the idea that Rod Rosenstein appointed this man to head the office is an outrage and he’s the one that ought to be questioned.”

Levin then introduced the theory that Weissmann was the one truly in charge of the investigation.

Check out Levin’s comments below:

“Everybody around Mueller knew he was incapable doing what he did,” he said. “I’ve always said it was his number two hatchet man, Weissmann. Weissmann brings in a nest of leftists to investigate the president of the United States.”

Levin continued, “That’s why this long list … of areas which should have been investigated by any prosecutor who’s not Helen Keller would have seen this stuff, heard this stuff, done something about this. He did nothing. Now we have an attorney general who’s a stand-up guy who’s going to look into it.”

He was referring to Attorney General Bill Barr, who, much to the outrage of congressional Democrats and their media allies, launched an investigation last spring into the origins of the Russia probe: Why was there an investigation in the first place? What was the investigation predicated on? Was the predicate legitimate? Was the investigation launched because of politics? Etc?

Of course, now Barr and the “bull-dog” attorney he chose to lead the investigation, John Durham, have another question to answer: Was Mueller purposefully appointed to lead the Russia probe because of (and not in spite of) his mental state? And if so, WHY!?
