Oh. My. God.

Not content with suing me & the Electoral Commission, Arron Banks has now attempted a legal challenge against parliament’s intelligence committee over publication of the #RussiaReport. Worried much @arron_banks?!?

Wow. This is extraordinary. Arron Banks is using fact of his litigation against me as argument for delay to publication of the #RussiaReport. This is shocking on alll sorts of levels.

I really am shocked because I have had not had high hopes about the contents of this report. The ‘juicy’ bits we’ve been told are in the redacted annexe. But Banks is sufficiently worried that he’s sent a formal legal letter to the committee...which in itself is fascinating

And it is pretty disturbing that he’s using a civil suit against me, a case that @RSF_Europe & @pen_int say is an abusive attack on the press to try & chill publication of a *parliamentary* report
