Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage squared off against the American media on “Fox & Friends” Thursday and said it’s finally time to put the Russia investigation to rest.
Farage accused the media of pushing the Russia narrative for partisan reasons and pointed out links between Hillary Clinton’s campaign and Russian interests.
“Somehow the left and their supporters in the media assume some kind of moral superiority, as if none of this stuff actually applies to them,” Farage said. “Clearly there were all sorts of things going on between the Clinton campaign and the Russians in terms of getting information. It was a very dirty fight of course, the election. And yet, you know, I look at, shall I say other news channels and read certain newspapers — and you would think there was nothing to see here.”
Farage said despite the best efforts of the establishment, American voters are tired of Russia and have been ready to move on to more important issues for some time.
“The fact is, that despite the huge efforts of much of the establishment in this country, when it comes to collusion with Russia, they’re finding absolutely nothing,” he concluded. “And I’m sure, there must be tens of millions of American voters out there saying can we please get rid of this and get on with the important stuff.”
