Sen. Josh Hawley sent DHS Secretary Mayorkas a letter expressing his grave concerns over the Biden administration’s new “Disinformation Governance Board” while calling for Biden to dissolve it immediately.
Josh said: “The Administration that activated the FBI against parents at school board meetings now has created a government Disinformation Board to monitor all Americans’ speech. It’s a disgrace. Joe Biden & Secretary Mayorkas: dissolve this monstrosity immediately.”
He wrote in his letter to Mayorkas, “I confess. I at first thought this announcement was satire. Surely no American Administration would ever use the power of Government to sit in judgement on the First Amendment speech of its own citizens.
“Sadly, I was mistaken.
“Rather than protecting our border or the American homeland, you have chosen to make policing Americans’ speech your priority.
“This new board is almost certainly unconstitutional and should be dissolved immediately.
“It can only be assumed that the sole purpose of this new Disinformation Governance Board will be to marshal the power of the federal government to censor conservative and dissenting speech.
“This is dangerous and un-American.”

Sen. Hawley went on to point out that the leader of the new board, Nina Jankowicz, is a political operative with a history of “partisan attacks.”
Josh also sent a letter to Elon Musk asking him to get answers when he takes control of Twitter about the below:
Some particularly salient questions to investigate in the audit include the following:
Who was responsible for deliberately suppressing the New York Post’s now-vindicated reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop and business dealings?
How many Twitter users have had their accounts suspended, and why?
How many Twitter users have been shadowbanned, and why?
Do Twitter’s shadowbanning and suspension patterns evince a consistent political bias? Have Twitter employees, since news of your acquisition of the platform became public, made changes to the platform or deleted records of their time at the service?
