New Evidence Linking Bannon Mercer To Brexit Prompts Call For ‘Mueller-style’ probe in UK

If there is one lesson both the United States and the UK have learned since 2016, it’s that a controversial election won by a narrow margin of votes can be disastrous. Theresa May’s government has seen a tumultuous fallout since the Brexit vote and in America, the very foundations of democracy have been shaken to the core by the election of Donald Trump — which is why it is fascinating, to say the least, that more evidence has come to light that both elections were manipulated, and in concert, by a mere handful of players with right-wing nationalist philosophies: to wit, Robert Mercer, Steve Bannon, British banker Aaron Banks, and not so far out there in the shadows, Nigel Farage and Vladimir Putin. New Yorker: Emma Briant, an academic expert on disinformation at George Washington University, has unearthed new e-mails that appear to reveal the earliest documented role played by Bannon in Brexit. The e-mails, which date back to October of 2015, show that Bannon, who was then the vice-president of Cambridge Analytica, an American firm largely owned by the U.S. hedge-fund billionaire Robert Mercer, was in the loop on discussions taking place at the time between his company and the leaders of Leave.EU, a far-right nationalist organization. The following month, Leave.EU publicly launched a campaign aimed at convincing British voters to support a referendum in favor of exiting the European Union. Leave.EU was the brainchild of UK financier Aaron Banks. Refresh your recollection of Banks. He has a Russian-born wife, a vanity license plate, “X MI5 SPY,” and he spent over eight million British pounds to finance the Brexit referendum, the largest donation in British campaign history. Russia tantalized him with opportunities in gold and diamond mines, and in consideration of that, Banks acted as a pass through for funds coming from Russia and successfully financed Brexit on its behalf. Then Banks met with the newly elected Trump, also in 2016, and then again right after that with Russian ambassador to Britain Alexander Yakovenko, and so on and so forth. The paw of Putin is easily found in both 2016 election interference and Brexit. New York Times, June 29, 2018: “From what we’ve seen, the parallels between the Russian intervention in Brexit and the Russian intervention in the Trump campaign appear to be extraordinary,” said Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. “The Russians were apparently dangling gold mines and diamond mines and financial incentives behind one of the largest backers of Brexit,” he added. […] On Nov. 12, 2016, Mr. Banks met President-elect Trump in Trump Tower. Upon his return to London, Mr. Banks had another lunch with the Russian ambassador where they discussed the Trump visit. Now, new emails have been unearthed which show that Banks, who was in charge of the Leave.EU campaign, met with Cambridge Analytica executives in 2015 to discuss what Banks called a “two-stage process” that would “get CA on the team.” Banks wrote, “It’s clear that major donors are sitting on the fence, but we aim to do something about that.” Banks returns to the topic later in the note, adding, “We would like CA to come up with a strategy for fund raising in the states and engaging companies and special interest groups that […]
