Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas defended the move to make Nina Jankowicz the head of his department’s Disinformation Governance Board despite concerns that her own political opinions could prevent her from approaching the job in an unbiased manner.
The DHS chief made appearances on several of the Sunday morning shows in an attempt to dispel concerns that the board might monitor American citizens in addition to worries about Jankowicz’s ability to be a neutral figure in her new role.
