AOC is not happy about Lindsey Graham advising Trump Jr to disregard the “legally binding” subpoena issued by the Senate Judiciary.
Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joined calls Tuesday for Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham to resign over advice he gave to Donald Trump Jr.
“The Senate Intel Committee (which is GOP-controlled!) issued a legally binding subpoena, & Sen. @LindseyGrahamSC advised that individual to ignore it,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “If Lindsey Graham wants to work for Trump so badly, he can resign his seat and move his office down a few blocks to do so.”
Graham said Monday that if Trump Jr. complied with the subpoena from the Senate Intelligence Committee, he should plead the Fifth. “You just show up and plead the Fifth and it’s over with,” Graham said, noting that his attorney would “have to be an idiot” to allow Congress another bite at him. “This whole thing is nuts. To me, it’s over.”
