Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) is setting Biden’s ‘Ministry of Truth’ in his sights.
According to a report from Fox News, the southern Senator will introduce legislation on Wednesday that calls for an end to the DHS’ Disinformation Governance Board. Hawley joins a chorus of GOP voices calling for the board’s end.
“Biden’s so-called Disinformation Board is unconstitutional and must be dissolved immediately,” Hawley said in a statement to Fox News Digital. “This is nothing short of a censorship committee vested with the full powers of the federal government to monitor dissenting speech and opposing viewpoints under the guise of national security. The American people need a full accounting of who signed off on this Board and who approved such a radical, anti-free speech activist to lead it.”
“In addition to dissolving the board, Hawley’s ‘Dissolving the Disinformation Governance Board Act’ would require Mayorkas to disclose all records pertaining to the formation of the board within 30 days of the legislation being enacted,” Fox reports.
The records required in the disclosure include: “Written or recorded communications concerning the formation of the Board; the agenda or minutes from any meeting at which the Board’s formation was discussed; any legal review to determine whether the activities of the Board would be authorized by the Constitution of the United States; any communications or records about the individuals who would be recruited to serve on the Board.”
