Perhaps DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas should have done his research before appointing Nina Jankowicz to head up the Disinformation Governance Board. Shortly after her position was announced, videos of Jankowicz musical past were shared on Twitter, spreading like wildfire. Mayorkas had never seen the videos.
“When the department picked [Nina Jankowicz], was the department aware of her Tik Tok videos? They’re really quite precocious,” Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) asked, referencing now-viral videos of Jankowicz singing the tune “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”
“I was not aware of those videos,” Mayorkas replied.
Watch the exchange below:
The House Judiciary Committee wants answers from Mayorkas and Jankowicz on how and why this disinformation board was founded. They sent the following tweet this week:
“BREAKING: Judiciary Republicans seek testimony from Nina Jankowicz on the newly established so-called ‘Disinformation Governance Board.'”
“The ability of Americans to engage in robust debate and conversation is the foundation of American politics, and there is no place for a de facto ministry of truth in our government. The very idea of a ministry of truth should be revolting to all Americans who hold our Bill of Rights in high regard,” the letter said.
