#LindseyGrahamResign trends on Twitter© Greg Nash Sen. Lindsey Graham is one of President Trump's most vocal supporters, after harshly criticizing Trump in the past.

Calls for Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) to resign began trending on Twitter Tuesday morning after the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman encouraged President Trump's son Donald Trump Jr. to plead the Fifth.

Graham on Monday said Trump Jr. should refuse to answer questions from the Senate Intelligence Committee, which subpoenaed Trump Jr. to testify about his communication with Russian officials.

"You just show up and plead the Fifth and it's over with," Graham told reporters, referring to the amendment that protects citizens from self-incrimination, according to The Washington Post.

Lindsey Graham has sold his soul to Trump (opinion)

Lindsey Graham has sold his soul to Trump (opinion) Graham's toadying to Trump--his advice to Donald Trump Jr. to dodge a Senate committee's subpoena-- has been so over the top, such an abdication of his constitutional duties, that the more conspiracy-minded wonder what Trump has on Graham, writes Jill Filipovic. It's probably simple: an attack from the itchy-Twitter-finger President can mean reelection woes info 2020 for Graham.

The official Twitter account for Democratic Coalition, an anti-Trump super PAC that targets Republican officials and candidates, called for Graham to resign following the comments.

"Retweet if you agree. #LindseyGrahamResign," the group posted.

The group wrote that Graham "has abdicated his responsibilities as a U.S. Senator and has clearly abandoned his oath to uphold the Constitution and defend the rule of law."

The Hill has reached out to Graham's office for comment.

The hashtag quickly gained momentum online, with more than 65,000 people using it on Twitter.

The GOP-led Senate Intelligence Committee reportedly subpoenaed Trump Jr. after the president's eldest son backed out of two scheduled interviews regarding the panel's ongoing investigation into Russian election interference, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) told colleagues at a GOP caucus luncheon Thursday that Trump Jr. voluntarily agreed to be interviewed twice but later withdrew, three people familiar with the remarks told the AP.

Trump Jr. and the committee had been in negotiations since December and interviews were scheduled for March and April, sources familiar with Burr's remarks told the news service.

Senators on the Intelligence Committee want to review Trump Jr.'s 2017 interview and ask further questions, the AP reported. The AP noted that Trump Jr.'s is the first known subpoena of a member of the president's immediate family.

Modi's party has commanding lead as Indian votes are counted.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his party had a commanding lead as votes were counted after the general election. The stock market soared in anticipation of another term for the Hindu nationalist leader. Election Commission data showed the Bharatiya Janata Party leading in contests for 291 seats in Parliament, with the Congress party ahead in 50 contests. The count was expected to conclude by Thursday evening. The election has been seen as a referendum on Modi, whose economic reforms have had mixed results but whose popularity as a social underdog in India's highly stratified society has endured.
