Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano on Tuesday said he was shocked to hear Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) encourage Donald Trump Jr. to snub his nose at a subpoena issued by his colleague Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC).
While speaking with Fox Business's Neil Cavuto, Napolitano said it was unprecedented to have a senator tell witnesses to ignore subpoenas -- and especially not when those subpoenas come from a member of his own party.
"I never heard of a senator saying disobey a valid lawful subpoena issued by the chairman of another Senate committee," Napolitano said. "The subpoena, just like the one to Bill Barr, is presumed valid."
He then said that Trump Jr. would be putting himself in serious legal jeopardy if he took Graham's advice.
"If you can’t or don’t want to comply with it, you’ve got to challenge it in court," Napolitano said. "You can’t just sit on it and you can’t not show. Somebody will show up with handcuffs."
Napolitano said that this rule applied to everyone, no matter who you are or "who your father is."
