Then Trump pivoted sharply back to the Mueller investigation, which he has elevated in status to "Rigged Witch Hunt".
The congressional investigations have been separate from the ongoing criminal investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller on behalf of the Department of Justice.
Mueller is leading the probe into whether Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential election with the help from Trump campaign aides. With the congressional campaigns now in their early stages in many USA states five-plus months ahead of the voting, Pompeo said there is much work ahead to mitigate any Russian interference.
Trump has questioned Mueller's ability to conduct an impartial investigation and frequently has referred to the probe as a "witch hunt".
"It's a Rigged Witch Hunt", Trump declared, questioning why prosecutors were not investigating his 2016 challenger, "the totally Crooked Campaign of totally Crooked Hillary Clinton".

That's according to a financial report released Thursday by the Justice Department. Because a little later on Tuesday morning, Trump followed his "meddling" tweet with one where he apologized - perhaps to his base - for "focusing his energy" on the Mueller probe when there is so much work to be done. "He said 'Oh I'm fine with collusion because there's no collusion, but obstruction that's a matter of interpretation.' And it isn't".
Trump has used his Twitter account to comment on the Russian Federation investigation on countless occasions, so it's unclear how long the president intends to adhere to his self-imposed redirection of "energy".
