Former U.K. Independence Party leader and Brexit advocate Nigel Farage dismissed a report that he was a "person of interest" in the FBI's investigation of alleged links between Russian officials and President Trump's campaign.
"If ever there was a case of fake news, this is it," Farage told Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight" about the report by The Guardian newspaper. "It is total and utter hysterical nonsense."
The Guardian report alleged that Farage "raised the interest" of investigators due to his links to the Trump campaign and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. During last year's presidential campaign, Wikileaks published troves of hacked emails taken from computers belonging to the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta.
