British politician is person of interest in Trump/Russia relationship

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

This just broke today. It shows more dots being connected in the Trump/Russia story. It seems to be an obscure item but may turn out to be a keystone explaining some behind the scenes connections.

Few Americans knew Nigel Farage’s name. But the flamboyant far-right British politician and radio host, a key architect of Britain’s vote to exit the European Union, took on an oddly Zelig-like ubiquity as Donald Trump captured first the Republican nomination and then the presidency.

Above is a tad of background on this fellow.

Nigel Farage is a “person of interest” in the US counter-intelligence investigation that is looking into possible collusion between the Kremlin and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the Guardian has been told.

Sources with knowledge of the investigation said the former Ukip leader had raised the interest of FBI investigators because of his relationships with individuals connected to both the Trump campaign and Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder whom Farage visited in March.

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.

“One of the things the intelligence investigators have been looking at is points of contact and persons involved,” one source said. “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 source mentioned Farage’s links with Roger Stone, Trump’s long-time political adviser who has admitted being in contact with Guccifer 2.0, a hacker whom US intelligence agencies believe to be a Kremlin agent.

Here are the two happy campers shortly after the election.

Last summer, just a few weeks before Farage met Trump in Mississippi, Stone bragged about having a “mutual friend” who served as an intermediary between himself and Assange. He also mentioned in a separate tweet that he had dinner with Farage, though the date of the encounter is unclear.

After Trump’s victory, Farage was one of the first foreign politicians to meet and celebrate with the Republican president-elect, and had his picture taken with Trump in front of a golden elevator in Trump Tower just days after the US election.

Sources with knowledge... Sources who spoke... one source said... The source mentioned...

This "source" is apparently leaking highly confidential intelligence related to fbi and nsa investigations.

Why do you suppose a person would do that given the fact that it'd be a federal crime? It seems odd.

Don't you think? I mean... what is to be gained? It certainly doesn't advance the investigation. At best it just feeds the clickbait media leftist talkingpoints... and in fact that's likely all that's accomplished.

We need to let the investigation take its course.
