Newly leaked emails revealed that Arron Banks, one of the biggest defenders of Brexit asked a data firm co-founded by Steve Bannon to planify raising funds from the United States back in 2015.

New reports show that the British businessman said in an email on October 24, 2015 to his associate Andy Wigmore, that he would like Cambridge Analytica to come up with a strategy for fund raising in the United States, and engaging campagnies and special interest groups that might be affected by TTIP.

"It's clear major donors are sitting on the fence but we aim to do something about that" , Banks wrote, "our first and only priority is to win the nomination and be ahead", talking about his wish to leave EU.
