‼️Farage’s aide & UKIP’s head of fundraising George Cotrell jailed

📌When Nigel Farage, Mr. Brexit, watched Trump accept the Republican Party’s presidential nomination at the convention last year he had an extremely unlikely companion—George Cotrell
His closest aide on the trip was George Cotrell, an offshore investment expert who had boasted on the dark web about his ability to launder money illegally in and out of the United States.
The aide, George Cottrell, was busted at Chicago’s O’Hare airport on his way home to London on July 22, 2016. He would later plead guilty to participating in a scheme “to advertise money laundering services on a TOR network black-market website.”
Brexit Party fundraiser is ‘Posh George’, once jailed in US after money-laundering sting

George Cottrell, a 25-year-old aristocrat known as “Posh George”, served as Ukip’s head of fundraising until his arrest by federal agents on charges of extortion, money laundering and fraud in 2016.
📌Since his release from a federal prison in Arizona after agreeing a plea deal, he has avoided appearing with Farage.

📌However, a senior source in the Brexit Party said he had reprised his role as one of his top fundraisers.
