Graham, a co-author of legislation that would make it harder for a president to fire a special counsel, said it was very important that Mueller be allowed to proceed without interference and that many Republicans share this view.
Gowdy was part of the Republican majority on the House Intelligence Committee that concluded a week ago that there was no collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, but said in the television interview, "You should want Special Counsel Mueller to take all the time and have all the independence he needs to do his job".
Just a day after news that Mueller had interviewed McCabe and asked him about Comey's firing, Trump attacked the special counsel's team, seeming to suggest it has a partisan bias.
The U.S. intelligence community has concluded that Moscow conducted an influence campaign aimed at swaying the 2016 presidential election to Trump over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime.
Likely contributing to Trump's sense of frustration, The New York Timesreported last week that Mueller had subpoenaed the Trump Organization for Russia-related documents.
The combination of the Friday-night firing of former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe and Trump's Twitter rage throughout the weekend has rapidly elevated fears that the president could be moving closer to firing the special counsel, a move analysts and advocacy groups say would spark a constitutional crisis.
"Why does the Mueller team have 13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters, and Zero Republicans?"
In reaction, GOP lawmakers sought to defend Mueller and warn the Republican president to let the investigation team do their job.
Dowd, in a statement to various media outlets on Saturday, called Sessions' move "brilliant and courageous" and said he prayed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing Mueller's Russia probe "brings an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe's boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt Dossier".
"In response to media speculation and related questions being posed to the Administration, the White House yet again confirms that the President is not considering or discussing the firing of the Special Counsel, Robert Mueller", he said.
Earlier Sunday, members of Congress, including some top Republicans, warned Trump to not even think about terminating Mueller.
Senator Lindsey Graham, another Republican, said if Trump were to dismiss Mueller it would mark "the beginning of the end of his presidency".
In the meantime, the president's tweets are wearing thin the patience of Democrats, who believe the president must be restrained. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., to write one of the special counsel bills, tweeted out Sunday. The lawyers are anxious that Trump, who has a penchant for making erroneous claims, would be vulnerable in an hours-long interview.
At this juncture, there appears to be more urgency behind an effort to hold a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on what led to the decision to fire deputy Federal Bureau of Investigation director Andrew McCabe, a decision announced late Friday, just over 24 hours before McCabe would have been able to retire with a full pension.
"I don't believe he made memos except to help his own agenda, probably at a later date. Can we call them Fake Memos?" Many experts believe a controlling Justice Department opinion prohibits Mueller, technically a Justice employee, from charging a sitting president.
"Everyone in the White House has cooperated on this, and what I said is that we have cooperated in every single way, every single paper they've asked for, every single interview", Short said.
Mueller is investigating whether Trump's actions, including last year's ouster of FBI Director James Comey, amount to obstruction of justice.
"I don't know what the designs are on Mueller, but it seems to be building towards that (firing him), and I just hope it doesn't go there, because it can't".
