The former head of President Joe Biden’s defunct Orwellian Disinformation Governance Board found a new gig by registering as a foreign agent to fight so-called “disinformation."
Former DGB Executive Director Nina Jankowicz said in a Nov. 18 “foreign agents” filing with the Department of Justice that she would be hired as a “disinformation expert” with the U.K.-based Centre for Information Resilience. Jankowicz’ role involves acting as an “ambassador for CIR on the Hill, within the Federal Government, media, among tech companies / Silicon Valley, on ‘K Street’, and among potential philanthropic organisations.” It appears the self-proclaimed “Mary Poppins of disinformation” may have turned out to be a Benedict Arnold. The filing states that Jankowicz appeared as a CIR ambassador on the taxpayer-funded National Public Radio on Election Day to "[d]iscuss Russian disinformation ahead of the 2022 midterms." But this is the same Jankowicz who parroted Biden’s talking points that the now-verified New York Post Hunter Biden laptop bombshell story was a “Russian influence op."
Jankowicz’ role also included actively developing relationships with U.S. media:
[Will] Act as a spokesperson for CIR, appearing on US media organisations, in consultation with the Head of Media / co-founders. Develop relationships with key US outlets, and advise the Head of Media on where specific investigations may land / be appropriate for partnerships.
Jankowicz resigned from the DGB following the Department of Homeland Security’s pause on the board’s efforts due to widespread backlash against its reported coordination with Big Tech companies and targeting of Americans. The DHS would later dismantle the DGB entirely in August, but its underlying work is still ongoing. “[U]nfortunately and ironically we were undone exactly by a disinformation campaign coming from folks who apparently want to put our national security behind their own personal political ambitions,” Jankowicz later whined on the May 19 edition of CNN Tonight. Apparently Jankowicz’ virtue-signaling didn’t preclude her “personal ambitions” to work with a foreign entity in the U.K. to target so-called “disinformation” in the U.S. Go figure.
Biden’s former disinfo czar is also ironically on the record supporting the curtailing of free speech in the U.K in the name of protecting women from criticism, according to a transcript of a September 2021 meeting in the UK to consider the Draft Online Safety Bill. Jankowicz suggested to the Joint Committee on the Draft Online Safety Bill at the time that it would be a “useful starting point” for Ofcom (the UK Office of Communications) to punish Big Tech platforms with “fines” for not censoring users enough.
