Arron Banks tells Guido he is lawyering up after CNN analyst and Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin claimed live on air that Brexit, UKIP and Banks were funded by the Russians. Banks says:
“It’s already been handed over to my US lawyer – most of this stuff is fair enough but this is beyond the pail. [sic]”
This tall tale has been doing the rounds for months – Banks himself has wound the rumours up by claiming a “KGB man” took him to the Russian Embassy. Попкорн!
