MP George Galloway could carry out his threat today to reveal the identity of News of the World investigations editor Mazher Mahmood.
The Respect MP is holding a press conference today at which he promises to "reveal all".
The Respect MP for Bethnal Green and Bow says he was approached on Saturday evening by two men — claiming to be Sam Fernando and Pervaiz Khan — who said they could provide illicit funding to his party.
He claimed they also encouraged him to make anti-semitic remarks.
Galloway said he has referred the matter to the Met Police and that one of the men was Mahmood.
Since then Galloway has claimed to have photos of Mahmood, whose appearance is a closely guarded secret. The NoW journalist’s undercover reporting tactics have led to some 130 criminals being jailed.
The NoW has urged media outlets not to reveal Mahmood’s identity.
