Calls for Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) to resign began trending on Twitter Tuesday morning after the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman encouraged President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., to plead the Fifth.
Graham on Monday said Trump Jr., should refuse to answer questions questions from the Senate Intelligence Committee, which subpoenaed Trump Jr. to testify about his communication with Russian officials.
“You just show up and plead the Fifth and it’s over with,” Graham told reporters, referring to the amendment that protects citizens from self-incrimination, according to The Washington Post.
The official Twitter account for Democratic Coalition, an anti-Trump super PAC that targets Republican officials and candidates, called for Graham to resign following the comments.
“Retweet if you agree. #LindseyGrahamResign,” the group posted.
