Media running wild with conspiracy theories about Russia, Farage
Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage slammed the latest manufactured anti-Russia witch hunt against him, calling it “fake news” after the Guardian published a report citing unnamed sources claiming Farage was "a person of interest" to the FBI because of his dealings with Russia.

“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 tweeted. He called the attempt to smear him “hysterical”.
“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 the media. “I consider it extremely doubtful that I could be a person of interest to the FBI as I have no connections to Russia.”
Farage told Fox News: “You know, I was involved with Brexit, I was involved with the Trump campaign, I was involved with upsetting their little world in 2016, therefore I must somehow be associated with the Russians.”
The mainstream media has been running wild with new conspiracy theories about “Russian interference”.
Speaking to French journalists earlier this week in Paris, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that the US Deep State had a stranglehold on Washington and wanted to sabotage good relations with his country:
“I have already spoken to three US Presidents. They come and go, but politics stay the same at all times.
“Do you know why? Because of the powerful bureaucracy. When a person is elected, they may have some ideas. Then people with briefcases arrive, well dressed, wearing dark suits, just like mine, except for the red tie, since they wear black or dark blue ones. These people start explaining how things are done. And instantly, everything changes. This is what happens with every administration.”
During Putin’s recent visit to Paris, at a joint news conference French president Emmanuel Macron repeated his allegations that Russia had sought to destabilise his campaign, Reuters reported.
Putin didn’t react to Macron’s comments right away, but bristled when a journalist suggested that Russian cyberattacks had been aimed against the Macron campaign. These hacking allegations, he said, were not based on any facts.
