I think there is logic to what the guy is doing, even if it is so incompetent. Wohl has observed that Trump's supporters don't care at all about facts, truth, and honesty.  They not only accept Trump's constant lies, but actually cheer him on. All they want is a narrative to justify their position--it's completely irrelevant whether if narrative is implausible or completely fabricated.

So, Wohl's simply providing a narrative that provides Trump supporters with reasons to dismiss Mueller. In today's political climate where 40% of the population doesn't care about truth, it's 100% rational to fabricate completely implausible stories to support your agenda.

Bingo!

Gary Kasparov has often explained that with despots and would-be despots, the outrageous lies serve a purpose. They say unbelievable things and then watch as their sycophants go out there and try to defend the lies. It's a loyalty test. If you go out and repeat and amplify the obvious lies ("the inauguration crowd was the biggest ever, period!"), you're proving your blind loyalty and are showing that your are morally flexible enough to do whatever they need you to do. And once you've compromised yourself publicly, consistency bias means that you'll now fight like hell to defend yourself AND the boss.

Someone like Wohl is trying to get Trump's attention by making a big show of going after Trump's enemies, because he thinks that if he can make himself useful to Trump, he might get some crumbs later (protection from prosecution, some cushy job, some publicity by being mentioned, whatever). He's too dumb to realize that Trump will dump everyone as soon as they aren't useful to him, and that he's not in a position to be of much use with his pathetic baby con man skills, so just showing blind loyalty isn't enough.
