Mr Banks came out swinging on Sunday the 4th of November, however, releasing a number of bank statements to the BBC's Andrew Marr Show and holding combative interviews with the eponymous host and a Sky News anchor in the afternoon. "There is the Brexit process which is ongoing and there is what should be a full and proper investigation into Mr Banks and the source of his funds".
He told Sky News: "The £8m came from a United Kingdom company, the cash was generated in the UK".
"I have written to the prime minister to ask if she or any other minister or senior official has at any stage declined a request from any of our security, intelligence or law enforcement agencies to investigate Banks", he said.
It said that, as well as having reasonable grounds to suspect he was not the true source of the cash, loans involved a company, Rock Holdings, based on the Isle of Man, which was impermissible under the rules.
This would have made it an "impermissible" source of money under United Kingdom electoral law.
Diablo 4 Was Almost Announced At BlizzCon
That would've lessened the big blow from the likely microtransaction-ridden Diablo Immortal announcement. Now key sources familiar with the matter give more insight on this odd decision.
"The corruption I've seen in British politics - the sewer that exists and the disgraceful behaviour of the Government over what they are doing with Brexit and how they are selling it out - means that if I had my time again I think it would have been better to have probably remained and not unleash these demons", he said. The question is where did the money come from? "They're ex-MPs from the Labour Party, Liberals, they're all Remainers, they've made some horrendous statements on Brexit, including the chairman who said Brexit was a bunch of nonsense, one's called for a second, referendum, it's a political hit job" - prompting the journalist to repeat "I'm sorry to interrupt" three times before managing to change the subject.
"It is a discrepancy because what he told us was that Rock Services really just provides services to other companies that he owns - provides cash, makes payments".
Leave.EU, one of the main campaigning groups during the 2016 referendum, had said that Banks was the source of the funds.
The Electoral Commission referred the case, about potential spending offences during the 2016 referendum campaign on European Union membership, to the agency.
He disputed the Electoral Commission's status as an independent body, claiming "they're all Remainers" - and he also described the organisation as a "complete shambles".
The tycoon is also facing allegations he may have misled parliament over links between Leave.EU and his aforementioned insurance business, Eldon Insurance, during the referendum.
He added: "I have no connection with any Russian businesses, I've done no deals in Russia, I've had lunch with the Russian ambassador a couple of times".
The Electoral Commission investigated the Leave.EU campaign and Banks after lawmakers called for a probe into whether "dark money" - including from Russian Federation - played a role in the referendum.
"The whole point of this exercise is to have a reason to try to delay Brexit", he said.
