Senate Democrats planned to hold a hearing on “disinformation, information, and malinformation” on May 10, with Jankowicz, to discuss the creation of Brandon’s Disinformation Governance Board, which is called the Ministry of Truth by critics.
According to a source, Senate Democrats were reluctant to have Jankowicz face questioning from Republicans, prompting them to scrap the event altogether.
“They yanked it when the entire ‘disinformation board’ blew up,” a senior aide told the Free Beacon. “They realized there’s no way they could reschedule without Nina Jankowicz being called to testify.”
The hearing was scheduled since April and was cancelled because of negative press coverage of Jankowicz and the newly formed Disinformation Governance Board.
“The hearing would have been an opportunity for Republicans to question not only Jankowicz but also the creation of the board in the first place,” the Free Beacon writes on the matter, noting that the Brandon administration has been reluctant to answer any questions about why Jankowicz was given the position, especially with the knowledge that she had previously called the Hunter Brandon laptop stop a “Russian influence op.”
The Senate’s Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee had the hearing scheduled since early April, with the event’s cancellation being called “out of the ordinary” by the Free Beacon, who say that hearings are not usually cancelled unless a witness falls ill or has a last-minute scheduling conflict.
