Overstock CEO resigns after admitting ties to Clinton probe, Russian spy

Patrick Byrne, the CEO of discount furniture seller Overstock.com, resigned Thursday, days after he confirmed he’d been romantically involved with convicted Russian spy Maria Butina. Overstock.com said board member Jonathan E. Johnson III will step in as interim CEO. Byrne confessed last week to have assisted federal investigators in the ’Clinton Investigation’ and the ’Russian Investigation’.

Hm... Could resignation be related to going after the deep state? Big leap but maybe this below will help? :) "On Wednesday, Patrick Byrne went on live television to dismantle the FBI, saying he took orders from Peter Strzok during the 2016 presidential election to spy on Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and even Hillary Clinton." Oops. If this is true, then treason and military tribunals became extremely relevant, no?

It’s interesting that this story is so focused on the Russian spy, when really it is about political espionage within the US. To some extent, pairing him with her in pictures and in stories is mainly a way to try to undermine him and sideline the story of what FBI leadership was doing. There are great interviews on Fox news, tourism that he’s done, but lay it all out.

Not ‘tourism’ . . .’that he’s done’. I didn’t realize I could only edit once on here.

Holy whatthefock!? Butina wasn't a spy in the classical sense, but an unregistered agent of Russia engaged in political activities and got a whopping 18 months. Sigh... so stupid, but hey he's a millionaire so his lifestyle won't likely suffer.

This guy sounds like he's off his rocker. Even if he is telling the truth, he's gave them a really easy path to make him look crazy. It could be just nerves (I can relate, as I get all uncomfortable like him when I think people think I'm lying when I'm not, but the story sounds far fetched), but he sounded like he was on drugs in his fox interview.
