Nina Jankowicz, who was chosen to lead the Department of Homeland Security’s misinformation taskforce, cited the debunked Steele dossier as fact throughout 2016 and dismissed criticism of the dossier’s funding. She pushed the allegations that former President Donald Trump colluded with the Kremlin to steal the 2016 election throughout the course of Trump’s administration, even after many of the claims about collusion were proven to be false.
On Nov. 1, 2016, she shared a statement from then-Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton about Trump’s alleged ties to Russia and said, “Husband texted me ‘you have news to wake up to.’ Never thought it would be this. Confirms our worst fears about Trump. I am horrified.”
Shortly after, she shared a Slate article claiming Trump had ties to the Russian Alfa-Bank – allegations that were dismissed by the FBI, CIA, special counsel Robert Mueller, and a bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee.
Trump had not one, but two secret email servers to communicate w/ influential Russian bank. Unbelievable. https://t.co/Cb4cUvv4Gu

Throughout the 2016 campaign, Jankowicz shared the Clinton campaign’s statements about the Russian collusion hoax as if they were fact:

But Jankowicz isn’t the only radical leftist on Biden’s new disinformation board. At least three of the board’s other members have close ties to leftist billionaire George Soros, according to a new report from the Media Research Center.
One of the board’s leaders, Jennifer Daskal, previously served as an Open Society Institute fellow and worked for the Human Rights Watch. She also worked as an editor of the Just Security blog. All three organizations have received hundreds of thousands of dollars from Soros.
