This guy is saying that he was hired by the FBI to bring down Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton, apparently by starting an affair with the alleged Russian spy Maria Butina.
He keeps saying “I won’t go into the details” – making us wonder why he is on TV if he doesn’t want to go into details.
This is like some kind of weird cartoon drama with this guy.
Is it even real?
He appears to be on my side, of course – but I don’t know that this is actually real.
Overstock founder and CEO Patrick Byrne, who resigned Thursday amid ties to a government probe related to the 2016 election, claimed he received “fishy” orders from former FBI official Peter Strzok.
Byrne said Thursday on “The Story” he’d helped the federal government with investigations twice in the past, including to “help them take down people on Wall Street.”
Several years after Byrne’s last contact with the government, he said FBI officials reached out to him in 2016.
“I was given some fishy orders and I carried them out in 2015-2016, thinking I was conducting law enforcement,” he said.
He claimed people who he characterized as “the Men in Black” came to him and asked him “for this third favor.”
Byrne clarified to host Martha MacCallum that FBI rank-and-file were “barely involved” in what he alleged transpired.
“It’s all the top [people],” he said.
“I didn’t know who sent the orders, but I did them. Last summer, watching television and some congressional hearings, I figured out where these orders came from. They came from a guy named Peter Strzok.” Byrne also named other individuals, with MacCallum reminding him those officials or former officials worked at the FBI.
Strzok was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation over anti- Trump text messages he traded with his mistress, Lisa Page. He was fired from the FBI in August of 2018.
MacCallum asked Byrne what Strzok purportedly asked him to do. Byrne did not describe specific actions he was allegedly told to take, but characterized them as “political espionage.”
The former CEO added that he began a relationship with Maria Butina, a Russian national currently serving prison time in the U.S. for failing to register as a foreign agent.
Byrne said that all of the purported information he gleaned from his experiences ultimately landed in the hands of Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, who has been conducting an investigation into the origins of the Russia probe at the behest of Attorney General William Barr.
Last month, Byrne disclosed he was involved in an FBI probe into the Russia investigation and admitted to having a relationship with Butina. In an Aug.12 statement, he said it was the third time in his life that he “helped the Men in Black: the first was when my friend [former NBA player] Brian Williams was murdered, and the second was when I helped the M.I.B. shake up Wall Street a decade ago.”
What the hell even is this?
What is he talking about? And why is it so fake-looking?
This is an actual known guy, obviously, a CEO of a major company – I guess it’s possible that he’s gone insane, though this would be a very particular form of insanity.
Look at this video, 5:40:
He says he feels responsible for the Walmart mass shooting and starts crying.
What does that mean? Is he saying that it was a hoax by the deep state? What else could that mean?
He then starts talking about how he’s doing this all for his rabbi.
He later on says that he’s not Jewish, and that his “rabbi” is the fellow goy Warren Buffett… meaning… I don’t know what that means.
I don’t know what any of this means.
But it looks like some kind of wacky conspiracy bait, put out there to just totally confuse the situation. He is not talking about what he did. He’s not really talking about anything at all, he’s just saying he got orders to do something. He dated a Russian spy, he blackmailed Hillary Clinton, he was in the room when they plotted to do… something.
He’s also not just on Fox – CNN’s Fredo interviewed him as well.
No information in that interview either. This guy is not presenting information. He can’t even explain why it is that he was called on to be involved with this conspiracy. I guess the implication is just that he’s rich, so he’d have clout among whoever he was directed to infiltrate.
It could be real, and he could be prepared to drop some bomb. I’m just telling you, I get a very John McAfee type vibe from this guy. And they’re both bitcoin kooks. So, I don’t know what to even say about this, other than that I would personally be very careful taking it seriously, as it appears to be some kind of weird staged hoax for unclear purposes.
