Mayorkas said he had full faith in the objectivity of Nina Jankowicz, the board’s executive director, who faced backlash this week for past tweets about the Hunter Biden laptop story and Christopher Steele’s debunked dossier.

I don’t question her objectivity,” Mayorkas said Sunday. “There are people in the department who have a diverse range of views, and they’re incredibly dedicated to the mission. We’re not the opinion police. She has testified before Congress a number of times, she’s recognized as a tremendous authority, and we’re very fortunate to have her.
