Homeland Republicans to Mayorkas: We Will Carry Out Rigorous Oversight of Disinformation Governance Board
WASHINGTON, DC –Rep. John Katko (R-NY), Ranking Member of the House Committee on Homeland Security, led Homeland Security Republicans in sending a letter to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas expressing grave concerns over the Department’s creation of its “Disinformation Governance Board.”
“It is with sincere concern that we write to you regarding the recently established ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ within the Department of Homeland Security. Your recent testimony and media statements regarding the board, as well as a recent briefing for Committee staff, have only created more questions and concern. This Committee will carry out rigorous oversight of this board,” the Members stated.
“As you are aware, information to this effect is made available by numerous government bodies, including but not limited to the Homeland Security Advisory Council. Considering that fact, as well as the constitutional concerns which have arisen from the Department’s involvement in matters such as this, there are standards that must be met for the sake of transparency,” the Members continued.
