Millionaire Arron Banks, who bankrolled Nigel Farage’s Leave EU campaign, met with high-ranking Russian officials many times before Brexit vote & even invited the RU ambassador to watch voting results at Leave EU HQ.

Arron Banks claimed he only had one "boozy lunch" w/ the Russian ambassador but documents show many visits from Nov 2015-2017, including an invitation to the RU Embassy the week LeaveEU launched its campaign & another before a Cambridge Analytica event.
"Russia was actively engaged in amplifying Leave messaging, targeting both undecided & Remain voters during the critical hours of June 23, 2016 – the day of the vote." by @J_amesp @Byline_Media
!! Documents show continued contact between Russian officials & Arron Banks in the run-up to the US election when Banks, his business partner & Leave EU spox Andy Wigmore & Nigel Farage campaigned in the US for Trump.

After George Cottrell's arrest, Nigel Farage called him an "unpaid volunteer," but Arron Banks' book details how Cottrell [who is cooperating w/ the FBI] was part of their Brexit inner circle, accompanying Farage "from meeting to meeting at the 2016 RNC."
MPs call for police & parliament to investigate millionaire Arron Banks [who bankrolled Nigel Farage's Brexit campaign] & his links to the Russian govt. Banks, his Leave EU spox Andy Wigmore & Farage campaigned in the US for Trump.
