Farage: Attempts to drag me in Russian witch hunt is Fake News
Thursday, 01 June 2017


British statesman Nigel Farage slammed an attempt to drag him into the manufactured Trump-Russia witch hunt, calling it “fake news” after the Guardian published a report citing unnamed sources who claim Farage is a ‘person of interest’ to the FBI.

“In response to the Guardian article, it has taken me a long time to finish reading because I am laughing so much at this fake news,” he wrote on Twitter. “This hysterical attempt to associate me with the Putin regime is a result of the liberal elite being unable to accept Brexit and Trump.”

“For the record I have never been to Russia, I’ve had no business dealings with Russia in my previous life and I have appeared approximately three times on RT in the last 18 months,” he told Westmonster. “I consider it extremely doubtful that I could be a person of interest to the FBI as I have no connections to Russia.”

“My meeting with Julian Assange was organised for me by LBC Radio with a view to conducting an interview.”


The mainstream media is running wild with new conspiracy theories ignited by the Guardian who claim that unnamed “sources with knowledge of the investigation” into ‘Russian interference in the US presidential election’ say Farage has been identified as a ‘person of interest’ by the FBI due to his connections to the Trump inner circle and Julian Assange of Wikileaks, with whom Farage met in March. The Swamp doesn't give up do they?

“Farage has not been accused of wrongdoing and is not a suspect or a target of the US investigation,” reports the Guardian. “But being a person of interest means investigators believe he may have information about the acts that are under investigation and he may therefore be subject to their scrutiny.”

“Sources who spoke to the Guardian said it was Farage’s proximity to people at the heart of the investigation that was being examined as an element in their broader inquiry into how Russia may have worked with Trump campaign officials to influence the US election.”

According to one of the Guardian’s shadowy sources, “One of the things the intelligence investigators have been looking at is points of contact and persons involved. 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.”

The Guardian also attempted to support their case by citing Farage’s friendship with former Trump campaign manager and confidant, Roger Stone, saying that Stone “has admitted being in contact with Guccifer 2.0, a hacker whom US intelligence agencies believe to be a Kremlin agent.”

 Farage’s spokesman responded to an inquiry by the Guardian and the implication that Farage is somehow advancing Russian interests as “verging on hysterical.”

President Trump himself has called the Russian conspiracy “fake news” as well, Tweeting in February that the entire stunt is a smokescreen created by Democrats and the deep state to mask their own illegal activities and shift the blame for their failures.
