The Guardian just clarified one of the reasons why the FBI may remain interested in Nigel Farage.
A former aide of Nigel Farage was involved in money-laundering, caught and sentenced. His sentence was much reduced in a trade-off with the FBI. The aide was part of the Farage group which visited the US to attend the Republican Convention in 2016.
As Guardian Stephanie Kirchgaessner writes: “… was arrested on money-laundering charges last year gave US federal agents “information” as part of a plea agreement that sharply reduced his possible prison sentence from a maximum of 20 years to eight months, according to court documents.
George Cottrell, a Briton who was arrested in the US last summer after attending the Republican National Convention with Farage, the former Ukip leader, received a sentence that was on the low end of the sentencing guidelines used to determine such cases …
claims to have worked as a private client manager at an unnamed bank, specialised in “onboarding” wealthy clients and assisting in the implementation of “leading edge tax solutions within multiple jurisdictions”. He also allegedly worked as a junior adviser at Cayman fund and as a board adviser for a “private family office” in London”
