- US media reported Nigel Farage was being investigated over his ties to Moscow
- Special prosecutor Robert Mueller is looking into Farage, the reports claimed
- But the ex Ukip leader has rubbished the reports as ‘hysterical accusations’
Nigel Farage has rubbished claims he is being investigated as part of an American probe into Russian interference in the US Presidential election.
The ex Ukip leader said reports in the Washington Post and New York Times that special prosecutor Robert Mueller was investigating him and Ukip donor Arron Banks over links to Moscow were ‘hysterical’.
They quoted Adam Schiff, a leading Democrat on security issues, as saying: ‘The parallels between the Russian intervention in Brexit and the Russian intervention in the Trump campaign appear to be extraordinary.’
Mr Farage said: ‘There seems to be a culture of throwing hysterical accusations around without any evidence whatsoever.’
