Giuliani first denied that Spygate is a strategy meant to discredit Mueller's investigation, but then did agree with Bash's assertion that the tactic has "helped erode public confidence" in the investigation.
Mueller, who was appointed past year after Trump fired FBI director James Comey, is leading the investigation into Russian election interference in 2016 and alleged collusion between Trump aides and Moscow. 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.
In a string of tweets Tuesday morning, beginning with one quoting conservative commentator Mollie Hemingway, Trump criticized Mueller's probe as a "witch hunt" staffed with Democrats aimed at harming his presidency.

In a second tweet Tuesday, Trump said the special counsel's team should instead be investigating the campaign of his Democratic opponent in the 2016 election, whom he described as "totally Crooked Hillary Clinton".
In a court filing Tuesday, prosecutors and defense lawyers say they're ready to start the process of sentencing Richard Pinedo, who pleaded guilty in February to selling bank accounts to Russians.
The decision goes against the near-daily complaints the president has made against the investigation, headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, on Twitter and in speeches since it began shortly after he fired former FBI Director James Comey previous year. Trump tweeted. "Why didn't the Federal Bureau of Investigation take the Server from the DNC? Will they be indelibly written into the Report along with the fact that the only Collusion is with the Dems, Justice, FBI & Russia?"
He compared the Muller investigation to former FBI Director James Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation, describing it as "meddling" in the election.
Trump's attorney and "fixer" Michael Cohen has had his home and offices raided.

In addition, league sources told ESPN that Colangelo has told close associates he knows who made the tweets. The Ringer first reported the existence of the accounts and the privileged information being shared.
That wasn't Trump's only tweet about the Russian Federation investigation today.
Coons cited a May 19 story in the Times saying Trump Jr. met with emissaries who told him that princes who led Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates were eager to help the campaign.
Giuliani said two topics were likely to be addressed during the interview: collusion and obstruction of justice.
"I don't think they would have asked to interview him until they are pretty much finished with everything", Giuliani said.
