Mayorkas Feigns Ignorance Over Disinformation Czar’s Hunter Denial

It’s highly unlikely that the Department of Homeland Security is unaware of any of their staffers’ social media presence, especially the questionable posts made by such a controversial member of the team.

The federal government is constantly tracking social media posts of private citizens, so the idea that they’re completely ignorant of their Disinformation Czar’s creepy online presence is beyond the pale.

What’s worse is that Sec. Mayorkas claimed he was totally unaware that Nina Jankowicz, the woman he hired as Disinformation Czar, previously discredited the Hunter Biden laptop story as Russian disinformation — a claim that’s now proven false.

Republican Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy pressed Mayorkas on whether the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) knew that Jankowicz called the laptop reports “Russian disinformation.”

“I was not aware of that,” he said.

Jankowicz attempted to pose the laptop report as Russian disinformation in an October 2020 tweet.

She also told ABC News in 2020 that the report should be seen as a “Trump campaign product.”

The senator then asked the secretary about Jankowicz’s attempt to verify the Steele dossier, a document written by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer, alleging collusion between former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia.

“When the department picked Ms. Jankowicz, did it know that she had vouched for the veracity of the Steele dossier?” Kennedy asked.

“I was not aware of that fact,” Mayorkas said.

Despite her new role of countering disinformation, Jankowicz peddled a since-debunked report promoted by Hillary Clinton’s campaign that Carter Page, the former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, worked alongside the Kremlin.

The Clinton campaign’s statement said it was “chilling to learn that U.S. intelligence officials are conducting a probe into suspected meetings between Trump’s foreign policy adviser Carter Page and members of Putin’s inner circle while in Moscow.”

She also falsely claimed in 2017 that the Republican Party funded the dossier, claiming bias coming from the FBI and Department of Justice went against Clinton.

This is who the Biden administration believes should be trolling the internet looking for ‘disinformation’.

Do you think we’ll have internet access in the reeducation camps?
