Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) made his name as a staunch defender of the rule of law in America.
But on Sunday, he urged President Donald Trump’s eldest son to simply ignore the law instead.
Graham, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, made the suggestion in an interview on Fox News.
Donald Trump Jr., the president’s son, adviser, and business partner, is a key figure in the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence’s investigation into Russia inference in the 2016 elections.
Rather than comply with the legally valid subpoena however, Graham urged Trump Jr. to simply break the law.
“If I were Donald Trump Jr.’s lawyer, I would tell him, you don’t need to go back into this environment anymore.
Graham made his name as a House impeachment manager in the 1999 trial of President Bill Clinton, urging his removal from office. »
