- Disinformation Governance Board head Nina Jankowicz has an extensive history of pushing now-debunked claims linking Donald Trump’s campaign to Russia
- Several past tweets of Jankowicz show her pushing claims from Hillary Clinton and her 2016 campaign staff
- Special Counsel John Durham has cast doubt on some claims that Jankowicz, a so-called Russian misinformation expert, has pushed
- Jankowicz previously defended her past tweets, but it shows the extent of her bias as she heads up a new board seeking to stop spread of disinformation
The head of President Joe Biden‘s new Disinformation Governance Board has a history of pushing now-debunked claims that there are ties between Russia and Donald Trump, old and recently resurfaced tweets reveal.
In November 2016, Jankowicz, a Russian misinformation ‘expert,’ tweeted: ‘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.’
She was reposting Clinton’s tweet claiming ‘it’s time for Trump to answer serious questions about his ties to Russia,’ along with a screenshot showing that the then-candidate had a ‘secret service’ he used to privately communicate with Putin-tied Russian Alfa Bank.
‘Trump had not one, but two secret email servers to communicate with influential Russian bank. Unbelievable,’ she followed up in another tweet with a link to an article by someone to whom opposition research firm Fusion GPS was feeding stories related to alleged ties between Trump’s campaign and the Kremlin.
Durham’s team has cast doubt on Alfa Bank claims – as has the FBI, CIA, special counsel Robert Mueller and a Senate Intelligence Committee probe.
Democratic cybersecurity lawyer Michael Sussmann has been indicted by Durham for concealing the identity of his clients, including Hillary Clinton’s campaign, when he reported the now-debunked Alfa Bank claims to the FBI.
