The revelation that Nigel Farage has had email contact with WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange has put the spotlight back onto the UKIP leader’s secret visit to Assange on Thursday as well as on any role that Donald Trump himself and inner circle may have played in the leak of CIA spy secrets.
Discrediting the US intelligence community would pave the way for Trump to obtain enormous power over the USA, the power in fact, of a dictator.
Just ten days before Nigel Farage visited the Ecuadorian embassy in west London on Thursday, where WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange has been living since he claimed asylum in 2012, he was spotted having a dinner with Trump and his inner circle.
Although Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was also having dinner with his wife at Trump International Hotel that Saturday evening, they were not invited to join Trump, showing just how much closer Farage is to Trump than even his foreign secrectary.
Attending also were Trump’s closest associates, his daughter Ivanka as well as Jared Kushner who, along with Michael Flynn, had a secret meeting with the Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, and another advisor and his wife.
According to the media, Farage also went to the White House before the dinner where it is understood that he met Steve Bannon, the former Goldman Sachs banker and editor of Breitbart, funded by the Mercer family to which Farage also has links.
The only reason why we know Farage was eating with Trump may be a tweet by Benny Johnson, a reporter for Independent Journal Review who happened to be at the hotel and who tweeted a picture of them at the table, although Farage did tweet out another picture over one hour later. Covering his tracks?
The importance of Farage to Trump is highlighted by the fact that he became the first foreign politician to meet Mr Trump following his election.
Trump also suggested that Farage should become Britain’s ambassador to the US.
Might Farage not be Trump’s envoy of choice in the delicate matter of deciding on the timing and scope of the classified documents that Assange is to leak?
It is reported Farage met with Steve Bannon in the White House and dined with Trump, two men with the highest national security clearances, on Saturday 25th February, an occasion when he could have discussed with them how to discredit the US intel communities stepping up their investigation into their Russia links.
Ten days later , on Tuesday 7th March, Julian Assange in London released the first part of classified information on CIA spying tools and threatened to release more. The timing was clearly designed to support Trump’s crusade against the CIA and FBI.
At noon, two days after the release, on Thursday 9th March, Farage was caught coming out of a secret meeting with Assange.
Farage spent around 40 minutes in the building and left accompanied by Christian Mitchell, the head of a radio station LBC, where Farage hosts a regular show.
Spotted by a BuzzFeed News reporter, Farage said he couldn’t remember what he had been doing in the building, which makes his visit even more suspicious.
Asked specifically if he had gone to the embassy to meet with Assange, Farage said: “I never discuss where I go or who I see.”
Is that something a person with nothing to hide would say?
Given the extent of the surveillance of electronic devices by the CIA, as revealed by the hacks, might Trump and Bannon not have decided it was better to send an envoy in person, specifically Farage, to talk to Assange in London to settle on a plan of leaks?
Bear in mind that Assange himself may also have qualms about leaking more documents given the fact he could face a death sentence in the USA, and he may also need some reassurance that Trump can protect him (he can’t).
Given all these coincidences and connections, I think the FBI should question Farage about the nature of his visit and his meetings with Bannon and Trump.
