Nigel Farage is a ‘Person of Interest’ to the FBI

2017-06-01

But who is Nigel Farage?  He is the man who, as former leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party, led the British into voting to leave the European Union.  “Brexit”, as it is known, or negotiating an exit from the European Union system, is a startlingly rash and self-defeating maneuver that will take years and lead to prolonged negotiations between Britain and multiple countries over trade and immigration policy.  Brexit is popular with slightly more than half of the population of Britain, with the glaring exception of Scotland, who are somehow sick of immigration and immigrants and display a consistently low degree of education and high degree of racism.

Here is a quote from today’s Guardian about Nigel Farage:

“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 Guardian reported today that Nigel Farage is a ‘person of interest’ to the FBI.  This means that investigators have found him connected to numerous other people who are involved in activities with the Trump campaign and/or Russian intelligence operatives, not that he has done anything specifically illegal.  It turns out that Nigel Farage is everywhere you look.  He was at the Republican National Convention last July.  He met Don the Con and gave a speech in August.  He appeared on RT (the Russian propaganda outlet) several times and apparently received compensation from them, just as Michael Flynn did.  He has expressed positive opinions about Vladimir Putin and was seen celebrating with Don the Con when he won the presidential election.  He is also a fan of Steve Bannon, the ultra-alt-right wing advisor to Don.

This conjunction of people highlights the commonality between the campaign to remove Britain from the European Union and Don the Con’s campaign for president.
