Fake news alert: Farage “person of interest” in Trump probe

http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/latest-news/farage-person-of-interest-in-trump-probe/news-story/b555f4bd142ebd0a78502b8f688417bc

Britain’s Nigel Farage is a “person of interest” in the US investigation into possible collusion between Russia and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the Guardian reports.

The British newspaper said Farage had not been accused of wrongdoing and was not a suspect or target of the US investigation.

The newspaper said the former leader of the UK Independence Party had “raised the interest” of FBI investigators due to his connections with Trump and Julian Assange’s Wikileaks, which published leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee during the campaign.

Farage said on Twitter it had taken him a long time to read the Guardian article because he was “laughing so much at this fake news”.

“This hysterical attempt to associate me with the (Vladimir) Putin regime is a result of the liberal elite being unable to accept Brexit and Trump,” he said.

“I consider it extremely doubtful that I could be a person of interest to the FBI as I have no connections to Russia.”

Accusations that Russia interfered in the US 2016 presidential election have dogged Trump since he entered office and a former FBI chief, Robert Mueller, has been named as special counsel to investigate any collusion.

US intelligence agencies concluded that Russia used computer hacking, propaganda and misleading news reports designed to sway political opinion in an attempt to boost Trump’s chances of winning the White House.

Trump has dismissed the notion that Russia played any role in his November election victory.

“One of the things the intelligence investigators have been looking at is points of contact and persons involved,” the Guardian quoted one source as saying.

“If you triangulate Russia, WikiLeaks, Assange and Trump associates the person who comes up with the most hits is Nigel Farage.”

“He’s right in the middle of these relationships. He turns up over and over again. There’s a lot of attention being paid to him.”

Farage, who campaigned for decades for Britain to leave the European Union, was a vocal backer of Trump, appearing on the campaign trail and meeting him in New York just days after the election victory.

  1. i’m 100% off the farage train. all those great EU parliament speeches can’t make up for what he is doing know – bringing up ‘internment’ as a solution to a problem created by the US/UK/israel.

  2. Reblogged this on World Peace Forum.
