Former head of the Disinformation Governance Board at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Nina Jankowicz has registered as a foreign agent, records show.
Jankowicz submitted registration documents required by the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), which show she now works for the UK-based Centre for Information Resilience. The documents register the specific foreign principle employing Jankowicz, the written agreement between the two parties and the reasons she is working for the foreign principal. It also includes basic information about the foreign principal and Jankowicz’s role there.
Jankowicz wrote on the form that she “supervises research, executes business strategy, oversees the establishment of CIR’s research, communicates with the media, and briefs individuals and officials on CIR’s research” in her role. She began working with the Centre as a consultant in September of 2022 and will go until September of 2023, according to the documents.

The Centre describes itself on its website as “an independent, non-profit social enterprise dedicated to countering disinformation, exposing human rights abuses, and combating online behaviour harmful to women and minorities,” which appears in similar language on the letter of engagement in Jankowicz’s registration. The letter of engagement specifies the Centre works “frequently with UK government colleagues” on its areas of focus and receives UK government funding from the Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Offices.
Jankowicz held her position as ‘disinformation’ czar from late April until her resignation in early May when the Department of Homeland Security “paused” the board. After her resignation, Jankowicz slammed DHS, telling former CNN host Brian Stelter, “they weren’t able to defend me” and “just rolled over, to the critics, who had completely spun this narrative out of control based on absolutely nothing in reality.” (RELATED: Fauci Changes Tune: ‘Completely Open Mind’ About Lab Leak, Gives School Closure Warning)...
