Former Ukip leader and Brexit proponent Nigel Farage is a "person of interest" in the investigation into links between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, sources with knowledge of the investigation told The Guardian.
Farage has become a part of the investigation due to relationship with people connected to both President Donald Trump and WikiLeaks' Julian Assange. During the 2016 campaign, WikiLeaks posted hacked emails that damaged Hillary Clinton's campaign and is suspected of cooperating with Russian authorities.
Farage is not being accused of any wrongdoing, and is not a target of the investigation, but being a person of interest means that Farage might have information that is relevant to the investigation.
“One of the things the intelligence investigators have been looking at is points of contact and persons involved,” one source said to The Guardian. “If you triangulate Russia, WikiLeaks, Assange and Trump associates the person who comes up with the most hits is Nigel Farage.
