"And that bumbling, stupid act that he did on Fox News, insulting Chris Wallace," he added.

"I'm not fixated about Robert Mueller, I'm fixated on the president's conversation with Vladimir Putin, and the fact that in a conversation he doesn't even mention meddling in 2020," Wallace retorted. "And the question I'm asking, I think it's a legitimate one, a lot of people are asking it, sir, is 'Why not?' "

Pompeo replied by explaining that it should be understood that "sometimes conversations just aren't long enough to include every issue that might be brought up."

"But no one should misunderstand from your question today, your viewers should not be misled, this administration has taken seriously the threat of election interference and will continue to do so," the secretary of State added.

Scarborough on Monday also said Pompeo should be "at the top of the list of day traders who don't understand: Donald Trump is going to be out of office in a year and a half, and he’s going to be at home, sitting at home."

"Because he’s disgracing himself every day, attacking Chris Wallace, attacking 'Fox News Sunday,' and attacking the viewers," the MSNBC host added.

Scarborough had predicted on several occasions last year that Trump would not seek reelection.
