Former United Kingdom Independence Party leader Nigel Farage blasted a report that he's a person of interest to the FBI in its probe of Trump campaign ties to Russia, calling it "fake news" and "total and utter hysterical nonsense."

"I have to say, if ever there was a case of a fake news, this is it," Farage told Fox News' "Tucker Carlson."

"What they have done is they tried to join the dots together. I was involved with Brexit, I was involved with a Trump campaign, and 2016, therefore I must somehow be associated with the Russians."

Farage, who said he simply did not believe The Guardian's reporting that anonymously cited U.S. officials, downplayed the notion he had any ties to Moscow.

"I've never done business in Russia, I have literally no political connections with Russia whatsoever," he said. "The whole thing is a fantasy from people who cannot accept the fact that they lost badly last year."

The British politician also slammed U.S. officials for leaking information to the press – echoing complaints of President Donald Trump.

"I don't know if we've ever had political witch hunts in Great Britain but we have here, and this looks like one of them to me," he said.
