There's a new name in the FBI's Trump-Russia collusion probe

As the FBI continues to investigate potential ties between President Trump's campaign and Russia, a new name has entered the mix: Nigel Farage.

The Guardian reports the U.K. politician is now a "person of interest" in the federal investigation.

In particular, investigators are said to be interested in connections to both the Trump campaign and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

However, Farage is not believed to be at the center of the probe but could have helpful information.

As one insider tells the Guardian: "If you triangulate Russia, WikiLeaks, Assange and Trump associates the person who comes up with the most hits is Nigel Farage."

Wikileaks published hacked emails from Hillary Clinton's campaign in 2016 — with ex-CIA director John Brennan alleging the organization may have colluded with Russia.

A spokesperson for Farage denied the former UKIP leader ever worked with Russian officials and said the Guardian's inquiry was "verging on the hysterical."
