On May 18th, Nina Jankowicz resigned from her role in leading the Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board.
Nina Jankowicz had previously pushed multiple falsehoods. She claimed that the Hunter Biden laptop was disinformation and pushed the now debunked Steele Dossier.
This led to the Department of Homeland Security announcing they were pausing the board’s work.
About three weeks later, on May 18, Nina Jankowicz, who was tapped by the White House to head the board, said she had submitted her resignation, and confirmed that the board’s work was “paused.” The DHS later that day issued a statement confirming that the board “will not convene and its work will be paused,” but DHS officials will still carry out “critical work across several administrations to address disinformation that threatens the security of our country.”
Jankowicz, who served as a disinformation fellow at the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars in Washington, was found to have promoted false information about the alleged Hunter Biden laptop scandal; users found posts she had made on Twitter that claimed the Hunter Biden laptop was part of a Russian disinformation campaign. Multiple media outlets including The Washington Post and The New York Times later published articles verifying and acknowledging the authenticity of Hunter Biden’s laptop. Jankowicz had later defended her previous posts, writing on Twitter: “For those who believe this tweet is a key to all my views, it is simply a direct quote from both candidates during the final presidential debate. If you look at my timeline, you will see I was livetweeting that evening.”
The board has now been officially terminated.
The Department of Homeland Security released a statement confirming this.
Statement from the Department of Homeland Security following the recommendation from the Homeland Security Advisory Council regarding the Disinformation Governance Board:
“The Department welcomes the recommendations of the Homeland Security Advisory Council, which has concluded that countering disinformation that threatens the homeland, and providing the public with accurate information in response, is critical to fulfilling the Department’s missions. We thank the Subcommittee for its work, which required extensive fact gathering and analysis over a short period of time.
“In accordance with the HSAC’s prior recommendation, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas has terminated the Disinformation Governance Board and rescinded its charter effective today, August 24, 2022.
“With the HSAC recommendations as a guide, the Department will continue to address threat streams that undermine the security of our country consistent with the law, while upholding the privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties of the American people and promoting transparency in our work.”
Unconstitutional from the beginning — but the Left keeps trying to control our speech.
This comes after Missouri and Louisiana served subpoenas to Dr. Tony Fauci, Nina Jankowicz, Vivek Murthy, Karine Jean Pierre, and others were served subpoenas in the Missouri and Louisiana lawsuit alleging collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech in silencing conservative speech.
The Gateway Pundit had the honor and privilege to work with the Missouri Attorney General’s Office to offer extensive evidence of Big Tech’s large-scale censorship and coordination with the federal government.
