The Department Of Homeland Security (DHS) has created a Disinformation Governance Board (DGB) that will oversee misinformation nationwide and internationally. The DGB will be headed up by Nina Jankowicz who is extremely partisan and whose social media accounts are full of disinformation that was overlooked when she was hired.
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified before the Senate Appropriations Committee and Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) asked, “When the Department picked her, did it know that she had said that Mr. Hunter Biden’s laptop is Russian disinformation?”
Mayorkas responded, “I was not aware of that, but we do not discuss the internal hiring process. Ultimately, as the Secretary, I am responsible for the decisions of the Department of Homeland Security.”
With the prevalence of social media among extremist groups and inappropriate material that’s been found on so many users’ profiles, why wouldn’t the DHS know the content of Jankowicz social media? In order to be the head of the Disinformation Governance Board, with the keyword being “disinformation,” it’s paramount that she’s accurate with the information she posts.
Kennedy then asked If Mayorkas was aware that Jankowicz encouraged her followers to believe the Steele Dossier. Mayorkas responded, “Senator, let me repeat myself and add an additional fact. One, We do not discuss internal hiring processes. Two, I was not aware of that fact. Three, as the Secretary of Homeland Security I am responsible for the decisions of the Department, and it is my understanding that Ms. Jankowicz is a subject-matter expert in the field in which she will be working on behalf of the Department.”
Jankowicz has shown herself to be consistently incorrect about important topics such as Hunter Biden’s laptop and the Steele Dossier. What makes anyone think that she has any authority to decide what is and isn’t true?
