Republican Senator Lindsey Graham is facing a fierce backlash with people demanding his resignation after he defended the Trump family again by continued his effort to stonewall any criminal investigation into the president and his family.
But within hours of the Democratic Coalition asking Twitter users to use #LindseyGrahamResign in tweets, calls for the South Carolina Republican senator to step down became the top trend on the social media platform.
Graham has been under fire for advising Donald Trump Jr. to ignore a Congressional subpoena and plea the 5th, which has led many to accuse the senator of advocating breaking the law.
As one Twitter user put it, “Lindsey’s moral compass was buried with John McCain. “
Take a look at some of the tweets below:
@LindseyGrahamSC Isn't witness tampering a crime? Would you be okay if anyone in President Obama's family ignored a subpoena or is it only okay for grifters like @DonaldJTrumpJr #LindseyGrahamResign

I agree. But I would be much happier if he were arrested or impeached too! 🙂

This brings back an old saying my friend Tommy used to say. “If it smells like crap it’s crap.” #LindseyGrahamResign Graham encourages Donald Trump Jr. to plead the 5th https://t.co/fpJ0sB3DiM

No one makes it more fucking obvious that Lindsey Graham is criminally implicated than Lindsey Graham. When the hell is the media going to start digging? #LindseyGrahamResign

I cannot believe we have come to the point where an elected official publicly tells someone to defy the law. How far we have decended. #RichardNixon is laughing from his grave.
Please resign, @LindsayGrahamSC. You have embarrassed yourself and your country.#LindseyGrahamResign
