As Twitchy reported Wednesday, the Department of Homeland Security has set up a “Disinformation Governance Board” and named Nina Jankowicz to head it. Though one of the focuses of the board is Russian disinformation, it didn’t take long for people to find Jankowicz tweeting about the Hunter Biden laptop story — the “laptop from hell,” as she called it — and writing off President Trump’s reaction, instead deferring to all of those former intelligence officials who said it had all the hallmarks of a Russian disinformation campaign.

And just this week she’d tweeted her concerns about “free speech absolutists” taking over social media — she shuddered at the thought.

At Thursday’s press briefing, a reporter asked Psaki about Jankowicz’s tweets about the laptop story, which has since been confirmed by the New York Times and the Washington Post. Psaki, of course, could not speak to the issue of the laptop story, but she certainly couldn’t understand how anyone would be opposed to DHS setting up its own Ministry of Truth.

We’re frankly amazed that a reporter even brought it up. They all know that the Hunter Biden laptop story is off-limits in the White House Briefing Room. How did Jankowicz even get the job? She sure as hell wasn’t elected.
