Farage added that the meeting was done out of curiosity, coupled with their “shared common interest … [in] the European arrest warrant” by which anyone within Europe can be extradited to another European country without actual proof of a crime.

His meeting with Assange stirred controversy given the former Brexit leader’s enthusiastic support of President Donald Trump. Emails written by Democratic National Party officials and former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta were released by WikiLeaks and may have contributed to the former secretary of state’s loss in the 2016 election.

Farage repeated his denial of a conspiracy attached to the meeting.
