The Department of Homeland Security has tapped yet another disinformation agent to replace its last disinformation agent Nina Jankowicz to the Disinformation Governance Board after a disastrous rollout.
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas picked former DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff to replace Jankowicz to lead a “thorough review” of its embattled disinformation board, which was put on “pause” Monday after intense backlash.
“This assessment will focus on answering two pivotal questions. First, how can the Department most effectively and appropriately address disinformation that poses a threat to our country,” the DHS said in a statement Wednesday.

“Second, how can DHS achieve greater transparency across our disinformation-related work and increase trust with the public and other stakeholders.”
Like Jankowicz, Chertoff also peddled the blatant lie that the Hunter Biden laptop story first broken by the New York Post was the product of “Russian disinformation” just weeks before the 2020 election.
