'I love the president and wish him well, ' he toldCNN on Thursday.
Trump has increasingly vented his frustration about the Russian Federation investigation and Mueller in recent days.
For the better part of the last month, Donald Trump has been winging it. "You don't spook a guy with a desk full of criminal subpoenas", said Turley, adding Mueller will pursue the case "as aggressively" as Trump's lawyers.
Sources told the Post that Dowd's decision to resign was largely a mutual decision. If Trump didn't really say it, maybe Mueller wouldn't be able to use it against him.
Trump intensified his criticism of Mueller last week, calling the special counsel out by name in a string of Twitter messages.
Washington lawyer Joseph diGenova will join the legal team this week, according to attorney Jay Sekulow, who also represents Trump.
This is at least the second major reshuffling of Mr Trump's legal team in the past year.
Dowd and Ty Cobb, also a lawyer for Trump, both favored giving Mueller, who's investigating whether Moscow interfered in the 2016 presidential election in support of the Trump campaign, everything he needed to conduct the probe. "We will continue our ongoing representation of the president and our cooperation with the office of special counsel".
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said earlier this week the tweets were a reflection of Trump's frustration with the process of the investigation. He's hammered out all the key areas he plans to ask him about if the hypothetical meeting goes forward - he's got four areas to quiz the President about - and now, all he needs is for the interview to be organised.
Trump's lawyers and advisers fear that, if interviewed, he could inadvertently perjure himself.
It is a sign of a potentially more aggressive drive to discredit Mr Mueller.
