Trending for some time on Twitter on Tuesday was the demand that, South Carolina Senator and Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Lindsey Graham, needed to resign.

The trending hashtag #LindseyGrahamResign was started after the Washington Post reported that Graham, a day after he told Fox News, that if he was Donald Trump Jr’s attorney he’d advise him to ignore the Senate Intelligence Committee’s subpoena, said Monday, “You just show up and plead the Fifth and it’s over with. This whole thing is nuts,” Graham continued. “To me, it’s over.”

He also reportedly said that Jr’s lawyer “would have to be an idiot,” if he allowed him to testify.

In response to Graham’s Sunday and Monday Comments Democratic Coalition posted on Twitter.

Twitter responded by causing the hashtag to trend between number 1 and number 4 for most of Tuesday, with The Hill reporting that as many as 65,000 people using the hashtag.

Graham, who was first elected to the Senate in 2002, is running for re-election in 2020.
