Sen. Josh Hawley: FBI Must Be Cleansed Top to Bottom

Upon the release of the Durham Report, Republican Senator Josh Hawley has called for the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to be cleansed from top to bottom. 

The Death of Integrity 

The Missouri GOP senator called the groundbreaking evidence that this instance even happened in American history “amazing.”

The findings of the Durham Report confirmed the FBI had no knowledge, let alone evidence, of any collaboration between the Trump campaign and Russia.  

In a statement on Monday, the FBI acknowledged the Durham Report, stating the agency has pursued corrective actions for their previous misconduct. 

Hawley Weighs In

Hawley told Fox Business host Larry Kudlow that the FBI collaborated with what Durham called the “Clinton Plan intelligence” to frame Trump during the 2016 presidential election.

As a result of this, Hawley is of the view that the director all the way down to the senior officials need to be swept out and released with more upright leadership. 

Kudlow pointed out the testimony of Chris Way as evidence that the FBI does not have a cultural problem.

Hawley rebuked him, pointing out that the agency does have this problem, given its politicized leadership, frequent lies to the American people, and lies before the courts. Their very actions need to have repercussions, such as prosecutions. 

Hunter Biden’s laptop was cited by Hawley in reference to this cultural problem, noting how the FBI paid Twitter over $3.5 million to conceal information, including the suppression of the New York Post’s article on the matter. 

However, Hawley made a distinction between FBI field agents and senior officials, saying the average local branch of the agency has decent people doing their duty. 

The takeaway, Hawley explained, is this can never happen again in American history. Charges need to be brought up on their officials to ensure the integrity of the republic is preserved.
