Why doesn't the $&@#%!!! media mention Russia's DECISIVE influence on Brexit

There was a smattering of mentions here and there in the past, but on the whole, US journalists have FLUNKED again. It's all about Theresa May and Parliament.

There's this from January.... then radio silence:

Senate Finds Russian Bots, Bucks Helped Push Brexit Vote Through

Scott Simon, NPR, January 19, 2019 7:01 AM ET
Heard on Weekend Edition Saturday

https://www.npr.org/2019/01/19/686830510/senate-finds-russian-bots-bucks-helped-push-brexit-vote-through

A recent report on Russian influence operations overseas detailed large amounts of money and effort spent to influence the referendum. Scott Simon talks with The New Yorker's Jane Mayer.

SCOTT SIMON, HOST:

Two democracies who share so much are in political turmoil at the same time this weekend - the U.S., in the midst of the longest government shutdown in its history, and the United Kingdom, stuck between a referendum in which people voted to leave the European Union and the reality of having no plan to do that with the deadline just two months away.

But what about the role of a third country that may benefit from the chaos? Russia has been accused of meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections and the 2016 Brexit referendum. We're joined now by Jane Mayer, staff writer at The New Yorker, who's been covering the issue. Thanks so much for being with us.

2. Yes! And Malcolm Nance spoke of this

In his book, The Plot to Destroy Democracy. He said B r e x I t was a test run for the American 2016 election.
Fucking Russians. Maybe the MSM thinks it's too fantastic a plot to report it. But it makes perfect sense to me. Malcolm rules.

3. From wikipedia (and The Guardian):

"2019 February, The Guardian reports that Brittany Kaiser, former business development director of SCL Group, was subpoenaed by Robert Mueller. Her spokesman said she was cooperating fully with his investigation. She is the first person with links to both Brexit and the Trump campaign known to have been questioned by Mueller."
