Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has joined the chorus of critics tearing into the Biden administration’s new ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ – headed by a ‘Russia expert’ who said Hunter Biden’s laptop was a ‘product of the Trump campaign.’
‘You cannot have a Ministry of Truth in this country. We’re not going to let Biden get away with this one. So we will be fighting back,’ the Republican said on Friday at a news conference.
‘When you’re not doing well, you have two options: You can try to do better. Or you can try to silence your critics. [The Biden Administration] is doing the latter,’ he added.

Psaki also pointed out repeatedly in her press briefing that the board was created in the Trump administration.
‘This is a continuation of work that began at the Department of Homeland Security in 2020 under former President Trump,’ she said.
‘So for anyone critical of it, I didn’t hear them being critical of the work under the former president, which is just interesting to note contextually,’ she added.
She said the board’s work includes understanding how misinformation spread by human smugglers helps prey on vulnerable populations trying to enter the United States.
‘This also works that is helping to address unauthorized terrorism, other threats and see how disinformation and misinformation are being pushed to lead to increasing those,’ she said.
Jankowicz, a self-described ‘Russia expert,’ has questioned the authenticity of Hunter Biden’s laptop by calling it a ‘product of the Trump campaign’ – even though its contents have been verified.
