Sen. Lindsey Graham Tells Trump Jr. to Ignore Senate Intelligence Committee Subpoena

Opinion: What the group must investigate instead is the Clinton Foundation and Hillary's illegal handling of classified material

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) advised Donald Trump Jr., son of the president, to ignore a subpoena issued by Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), the Senate Intelligence Committee chair, during an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”

“If I were Donald Trump Jr.’s lawyer, I would tell him, ‘You don’t need to go back into this environment anymore. You’ve been there for hours and hours, and nothing being alleged here changes the outcome of the Mueller investigation,’” Graham said on Sunday.

“I would call it a day,” he added.

Democrats continue to undermine our institutions by continuing the Russian investigation hoax, even after the conclusion of the Mueller probe; the subpoena of Trump Jr. from the Senate Intelligence Committee is part of its own investigation into Russia collusion.

This is an abuse of power and harassment, in my view.

Graham is right to tell Trump Jr. to stay away, though it’s surprising to hear that advice come from the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman.

Democrats are trying to make President Donald Trump, his family and friends so beleaguered with bullying and harassment that they will surrender.

Doesn’t that prove to anyone still neutral about Trump that Democrats have zero tolerance for anyone who opposes their views?

The Democrats have made the investigation and subpoena processes partisan and unfair. What Burr and the Senate Intelligence Committee need to do instead is investigate the Clinton Foundation, along with Hillary Clinton’s illegal handling of classified material.

And they need to investigate how many bills House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) pushed through that helped her husband’s business.

They need to investigate all the people involved with trying to overthrow our government with lies and false court procedures.

Graham is a savvy politician. He wasn’t aboard the Trump train at first, but he knows that the GOP cannot afford to tear itself apart in 2020.

I could care less who was a true believer or not back in 2015.

Today, the Trump-Pence 2020 ticket should be a no-brainer for America.
