Republican Senator Lindsey Graham made a shocking announcement on Tuesday and told Donald Trump Jr. to ignore the Senate Intel subpoena and also encouraged him to plead the fifth.
Last week, the GOP dominant Senate Intel Panel decided to subpoena Trump Jr. concerning matters related to the "Trump/Russia" collusion narrative even though the Mueller report clearly stated that no members of the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government. Trump Jr. has also already given 25 total hours of testimony to this Senate committee.
“The subpoena sets up a fight that’s unprecedented in the Trump era: A Republican committee chair pit against the Republican president’s eldest son,” Axios, said. “Mueller, whose investigation did not find a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, did not indict Trump Jr., despite speculation that he would,” the outlet noted later, adding: “The fact that they’re subpoenaing Trump Jr. is a strong signal that he declined a request to appear before the committee again.”
Overall, members of the Republican party were outraged over the news.
While speaking to reporters, Graham announced, “If I were [Donald Trump Jr.’s] lawyer I wouldn’t put him back into this circus. He’s been to the committee, two or three different committee. He’s testified under oath.”

Far Left Democrats on Twitter were furious that Graham would suggest that Trump Jr. exercise his constitutional rights and started the "LindseyGrahamResign" hashtag on Twitter.
Check out what the Gateway Pundit reported:
Even better, Lindsey Graham’s office responded to “LindseyGrahamResign” by saying, “No collusion. No obstruction. No resignation.”
The libs are going crazy because Mueller didn’t indict President Trump and AG Bill Barr just opened a massive investigation into Spygate and FISA abuses.
The hashtag #LindseyGrahamResign was trending number 3 in the United States on Twitter Tuesday afternoon because the libs were losing their minds over based Lindsey Graham.
This moral outrage by the Left seems to be very selective considering Democratic lawmakers have suggested much worse than Graham yet the Democratic base is usually very quiet when that's the case.
The Democratic Coalition was also morally outraged.
"BREAKING: #LindseyGrahamResign has been tweeted out over 20,000 times since @TheDemCoalition started to promote it this morning. Graham SHOULD resign. Him telling Don Jr to ignore a Senate subpoena is more than enough to warrant his resignation. Everyone who retweets this agrees." they said in a tweet. The tweet only got a measly 1000 retweets.
Many people close to Trump Jr. see this subpoena as a political PR stunt. A source told the Daily Wire that the recent attempt to hammer Trump Jr. is just a “PR stunt.”
“Don is a private citizen, who has already been cleared by Mueller after a two year investigation. He has done 8-9 hours of testimony in front of Senate Intel already and 27 hours of testimony in front of various committees in total. When he originally agreed to testify in front of the Senate Intel Committee in 2017, there was an agreement between Don and the Committee that he would only have to come in and testify a single time as long as he was willing to stay for as long as they’d like, which Don did,” the source told the Daily Wire.
“Don continues to cooperate by producing documents and is willing to answer written questions, but no lawyer would ever agree to allow their client to participate in what is an obvious PR stunt from a so-called ‘Republican’ Senator too cowardly to stand up to his boss Mark Warner and the rest of the resistance Democrats on the committee.”
