Brexit campaigner Banks - I have no business interests in Russian Federation

Brexit campaigner Banks - I have no business interests in Russian Federation

He also told The Times that he had disclosed details of his meetings with Russian officials to the London bureau of the Central Intelligence Agency. I don't mean to be rude but we've got places to be.

Arron Banks, one of the self-described "bad boys of Brexit", said he has no business interests in Russian Federation and there was no evidence of a conspiracy connected to Britain's vote to leave the European Union. After the warnings, Banks said, the deal fell away. "Did those business deals go through?"

"I've got no business interests in Russian Federation and I've done no business deals in Russian Federation", said Banks, who was pictured with Trump and fellow Brexit backer Nigel Farage at Trump Tower days after the presidential election in November 2016. "Bite me", The Sunday Times quoted Banks as saying.

British businessman Arron Banks in Doncaster, northern Britain September 25, 2015.

On Tuesday, Mr. Banks and Mr. Wigmore rejected allegations of Russian interference and improper use of Facebook data, and criticized Mr. Wylie, who worked at Cambridge Analytica along with another whistle-blower, Brittany Kaiser.

He said: 'Sorry, I really have to insist. "What were you hoping to get out of it?"

Testifying before a Parliament committee, Arron Banks said he was being targeted in a witch hunt by politicians and journalists who favoured remaining in the 28-nation bloc.


On Sunday, it emerged that Mr Banks had had two more meetings with the Russian ambassador Alexander Yakovenko than he had previously disclosed in his book on the referendum battle, The Bad Boys of Brexit.

After three hours before the committee, Mr Banks stood up and said he was leaving as he was late for a lunch appointment. One of the meetings was a November 2016 lunch three days after Banks visited Donald Trump, then president-elect, along with Farage and another prominent Brexit campaigner, Andy Wigmore. "What's wrong with that?"

When committee chairman Damian Collins asked for five more minutes, Mr Banks replied: "No, you said 20 minutes and now we've run way past 20 minutes".

Wigmore told the MPs he had obtained the number after he supplied one for 10 Downing St to a receptionist for Trump. "If you are trying to sell something or put a good case over to somebody, you will tell the best story", he said. "We do have not relationship with the British or any of these governments.'" Wigmore added: "I said, 'What if somebody wants to get in touch with you?' and she said, 'Here's a number, you can give them that'". Prime Minister Theresa May regularly accuses Russian Federation of meddling in foreign elections, but never includes the 2016 Brexit referendum - in part to avoid exacerbating deep divisions in the party on leaving the EU. Collins told the committee that as a result it would not be possible for the committee to explore related areas.

Since Britain voted to leave the European Union in June 2016, questions have surfaced about Banks and Leave.EU's unofficial campaign.

He and Mr Wigmore began the session by challenging Mr Collins's right to chair it, because the Tory had declared receiving two tickets worth £1,060 for a football match at Chelsea, owned by Russian tycoon Roman Abramovich.
