The White House’s former “disinformation czar” Nina Jankowicz recently registered as a foreign agent of the United Kingdom. Documents obtained by Fox reveal that she is now working for a non-profit named “Centre for Information Resilience.” CIR is an “independent, non-profit social enterprise dedicated to countering disinformation, exposing human rights abuses, and combating online behavior harmful to women and minorities.”
According to Fox:
Founded by U.K. citizen Adam Rutland and dual U.K.-U.S. national Ross Burley, the organization says it conducts research, digital investigations, strategic communications, building the capacity of local partners, and collaborating with media to “amplify the impact” of its work.
Among Jankowicz’s responsibilities, the documents say, will be supervising research, executing business strategy, overseeing the establishment of CIR’s research, communicating with the media, and briefing individuals and officials about the organization’s research.
Earlier this year, Jankowicz was appointed to head the Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board, a position that was ultimately short-lived.
Critics questioned Jankowicz’s ability to be impartial, pointing to her past positions on social media posts, including casting doubt on the legitimacy of The New York Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop before the 2020 election. That reporting has since been corroborated by several news organizations.
