“The Durham Report confirmed what we already knew: Armed federal agencies fabricated a bogus conspiracy theory about Trump-Russia collusion,” DeSantis said on Twitter. «It reminds us of the need to clean house on these agencies as they have never been held to account for this egregious abuse of power.»
Vivek Ramaswamy, who announced his campaign in February, called for «shutting down the FBI» on Monday after the report was released.

Nearly 60 years later, the same administrative agency continues to attack and destroy its political enemies.» Ramaswamy said on Twitter. “This has to end finally. Shut down the FBI, and yes, this is much more practical than it sounds.»
Former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who launched his candidacy last month, called for reform rather than a complete shutdown.
“Today’s Durham report blamed the FBI for failing to uphold the integrity of the law. This makes my call to reform the FBI and limit the breadth of its jurisdiction all the more important.» Hutchinson wrote on Twitter. «Good people. He just needs more focus and responsibility.»
