Tapper then brought up tweets from Trump that seemed to suggest he was preparing to fire the special counsel.
"I think the president is going to have a really hard time nominating and having approved another attorney general", Gowdy said.
Trump had warned last July that if Mueller broadened his inquiry to include the finances of the Trump Organization, it would be a "violation".
Senator Lindsey Graham, another Republican, said if Trump were to dismiss Mueller it would mark "the beginning of the end of his presidency".
On Saturday, Trump's personal lawyer John Dowd urged the Justice Department official overseeing Mueller, Rod Rosenstein, to "bring an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe's boss James Comey".
Amid Attorney General Jeff Sessions firing former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Trump's own lawyer called for Mueller to be fired this week.
"I don't [support Dowd's statement], and I think the president's attorney, frankly, does him a disservice when he says that and when he frames the investigation that way", Gowdy said.

Voting begins in Russian Federation to give Putin another term Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny says he boycotted the presidential election and advises other Russians to do the same. Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine four years ago, earning Putin admiration from many Russians and condemnation from the West.
Trump also drew criticism from fellow Republicans on Sunday over the firing of McCabe, who said he believed he was targeted because he corroborated Comey's claims that Trump tried to pressure Comey into killing the Russian Federation probe.
Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., called for the passage of bipartisan bills created to protect Mueller that have stalled in Congress. "This President is engaged in desperate and reckless conduct to intimidate the law enforcement agencies in this country and to try to stop the special counsel". "And for the administration to keep trying to undercut what they're trying to do - the president keeps saying there's no story here, they didn't do anything wrong".
The outgoing Republican did not mince words about McCabe either, saying the former top Federal Bureau of Investigation official "undercut his credibility all by himself".
Trump had long pressured his attorney general Jeff Sessions to remove McCabe, alleging bias in the FBI was behind investigations into his campaign. "A great day for Democracy", Trump tweeted afterward. I don't believe he made memos except to help his own agenda, probably at a later date. "Can we call them Fake Memos?"
Florida GOP Sen. Marco Rubio said he did not like the way McCabe's firing was handled and that appropriate action could have come after the release of a report from the Justice Department inspector general.
But Mueller defenders say he, and more broadly the FBI, have safeguards in place to avoid letting any investigation be tainted by politics. On Sunday, he attacked former FBI Director James Comey and McCabe, top officials who were involved in the Russian Federation probe and subsequently fired. Mr. Trump's personal lawyer John Dowd called for Rosenstein to "bring an end" to the Russian Federation investigation Saturday, adding to the tension. "And they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not". "That is supremely important and it has nothing to do with collusion", Gowdy said.
For some observers, the real question for Putin is whether he can now use his mandate to push for some program of economic reform. Yugene Yarmakov, 23, who was voting for the first time, said there were too many "joke candidates". "The others, it's a circus".
