‘Hypocrite’ Lindsey Graham faces massive #LindseyGrahamResign movement after GOP senator defends Trump family again

Graham — a former military Judge Advocate General — has been under fire for advising Donald Trump Jr. to ignore a Congressional subpoena, 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. “
