News out of the UK about Russian propaganda targeting that county's politics is a new "Russia hoax" being perpetrated by liberals and the mainstream media, according to One America News. The pro-Trump network put its very best alum of the Kremlin's propaganda machine on the story.

One America News' Kristian Rouz covered the controversy in Britain surrounding an unreleased parliamentary report investigating Russia's interference in UK politics and its online trolling in support of the 2016 Brexit vote. Lawmakers are accusing prime minister Boris Johnson of slowing-walking the report to keep it under wraps until after the December 12 election.

"The mainstream media continues attempts to revive the failed Russia hoax, designating as a Russian agent none other than British prime minister Boris Johnson," Rouz reported.

As The Daily Beast reported in July, Rouz, a graduate of Moscow's Higher School of Economics, was a regular contributor to the Kremlin-run propaganda site Sputnik while simultaneously working in the San Diego, California offices of OAN, a Trumpist cable channel with a history of regurgitating conspiracy theories and Russian propaganda.
