(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Nina Jankowicz, appointee for what was the Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board, registered as a foreign agent and is relocating to the United Kingdom.
According to the Washington Examiner, registration documents show that Jankowicz is now working for the Centre for Information Resilience, a UK-based nonprofit “countering disinformation, exposing human rights abuses, and combating online behavior harmful to women and minorities.
The Biden administration’s former Ministry of Truth head started her work with the Centre in September, kicking off a project to fight “gendered abuse and discrimination.”
Her registration documents also reveal that she “supervises research, executes business strategy, oversees the establishment of CIR’s research, communicates with the media, and briefs individuals and officials on CIR’s research.”
The Disinformation Governance Board’s initial launch was in April, but the project quickly fell apart after intense backlash from American citizens. Nonetheless, DHS continued to advance its core functions elsewhere, working with social-media sites like Facebook and Twitter to suppress public criticism.
During her brief tenure, Jankowicz made her disdain for for average Americans clear and proposed that verified Twitter accounts have the ability to edit tweets of plebeian users.
“I am eligible for it because I am verified, but there are a lot of people who shouldn’t be verified, who aren’t legit, in my opinion,” Jankowicz said. “I mean, they’re real people but they’re not trustworthy.”
She also came under fire for claiming Hunter Biden’s laptop was a Russian intelligence operation, refusing to concede it was valid even after it was authenticated.
Most embarassingly, however, was the surfacing of her TikTok exploits.

After all of these things surfaced, the board was put on a hiatus and Jankowicz was forced to resign.
As the project was on its way out the door, the White House attempted to blame the entire thing on former President Donald Trump.
Despite her disgraceful resignation, Jankowicz insisted that the board was yet another victim if disinformation and worked to brush criticism of the group under the rug.
There is speculation that even after the failed rollout DHS may attempt to bring back the disinfo board under the supervision of either Vice President Kamala Harris or former Bush staffer Michael Chertoff.
