Patrick Byrne CEO of Overstock Corp. Resigns and Admits to Participating in FBI Political Surveillance…

Jumpin’ ju-ju beans this is interesting.  During a live broadcast on Fox Business the CEO of Overstock Inc, Patrick Byrne, explained the earlier announcement of why he was resigning as CEO from the company he created.

According to Patrick Byrne, due to an earlier relationship relating to Wall Street and assisting federal officials with an investigation therein, he was approached in/around 2015 to assist the FBI with another operation.  *UPDATE* Video added:

.

♦Byrne now says in 2015 and 2016 the FBI operation was part of a network of political surveillance being conducted by the FBI on presidential candidates.

♦Byrne names FBI Agent Peter Strzok as the person giving the instructions.

♦Byrne names: Hillary Clinton, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump as the four candidates under FBI surveillance, and/or inside an operation consisting of political espionage.

♦Byrne claims he was offered a $1 billion bribe to keep his mouth shut.

♦Byrne claims there are additional witnesses.

♦Byrne states he went to the DOJ in April 2019 (3rd – 10th), after Bill Barr was Attorney General, because he was informed that Barr was trustworthy and going to support.  Byrne told the DOJ everything that was happening.

After confiding with billionaire Warren Buffett, “my Rabbi” about his story, Patrick Byrne claims  Buffett (a mentor and lose friend) gave him personal advice to distance himself from his company, Overstock Inc., because all of the DC interests would use his business to “grind him down”.

In essence Byrne has been given advice about how the deep state will now target him personally.  This is the reason why Byrne resigned as CEO of Overstock.

♦Byrne now sees the deep divisions in the country as partly driven by this FBI operation which was political espionage.  Byrne feels an obligation to share the truth in an effort to help the nation understand what was happening.

Patrick Byrne is anticipating being an unavoidable public witness to testify as to the nature of the political surveillance and “political espionage” that was happening in 2015 and 2016, and his role therein.

His interview is in the video inside the tweet below:

        On second thought the Hillary revelation is a good thing. The media will not cover spygate because Trump is the victim. Since Trump is their enemy, the FBI is the media’s friend. If the media believes the FBI was also going after Hillary, they will be outraged. Trump is going along for the ride. With the FBI going after Hillary, the media will focus on FBI corruption and wrong doing. They can bury the fact that Hillary paid for Steele and his dirt. They can portray Hillary and Trump by extension as victims. This could be a gift. I am more interested in the takedown of Comey McCabe strokz Page Brennan and clapper. I don’t give a damn about Hillary. If she gets a pass to get this takedown going, then fine. It’s worth it.

          The more I think about the interview, the more I resemble Suspicious Cat.

          This Byrne interview/resignation/interview process could be what Sarah Carter calls by the military term “final defensive fire”, i.e. a Hail Mary play to get in front of the narrative by painting Killary as a victim of the Deep State. And, more than incident, to rehabilitate Buffet in the eyes of patriots.

          They know from Solomons interview on Hannity this week that Declass of major FISAgate documents in coming soon, circa 1st few weeks of September.

          I now suspect something will come out of Declass that is negative about the “Rabbi”, which I would then consider to be a partial confirmation of this theory.

          An objection to this suspicious attitude is that Byrne would have been required to step down as CEO of Overstock to pull it off. But think– the bad guys were trying to get DJT to not be CEO of the United States. For that, in principle, they could face being tried for treason. Making a corporate CEO resign is child’s play compared to that. Or Byrne could have wanted to step down anyway, for unrelated reasons.

          The way Byrne’s 1st interview was supposed to be about his cryptocurrency product launch, and he highjacked his own segment to bring up his role in Russia, and the way he did a 4 or 5 stage “teaser rollout” of Warren Buffet today, which was only tangential to the topic at hand, make me suspect we are being played somehow by Byrne, or by whomever is behind him.

We’ll never know for sure. It’s simply not for us to know.

          That said, I personally have had God intervene in my life to save me, to literally save me, so I could be here for my children. My mother has experienced spiritual intervention that saved her life in a car accident that should have killed her. The cops were amazed she walked away. I see that as God’s hand.

              My suggestion would be to read Deuteronomy. Got tells us through Moses that he wants to bless us. He tells us how to be blessed. He also tells us in very plain language that if we rebel against Him and stray away, we will be putting ourselves and societies directly in harm’s way. We are to live out our faith every day and teach our children and grandchildren so that later generations can receive God’s blessings.

              What those two women did in the example you gave is part of what the Canaanites did for worship. The Canaanites also engaged in outrageous and public sexual deviancy to try to convince their perverted idea of their regional gods to grant them fertility and an abundant harvest.

              All sin ultimately is against God. Over and over in scripture, God tells us through the prophets that He grieves because of the evil. When we hear stories such as you presented, you and I grieve too.

      Our DESIRE for it to be true, shouldn’t influence our objective evaluation of if it IS true.

      And not at all sure I’m buying it, as I consider it further. A political espionage operation on Hillary Clinton?

      So what,…there were ‘white hats’in IC, who decided Hillary could NOT be POTUS. So, THEY got the Podesta emails, and sent them to wikileaks.

      THEN, the black hats in IC, turned that around, by trying to frame DJT?

      We have seen NOTHING that I know of, so far, to indicate any IC operation against anyone but DJT. Until I see clear evidence otherwise, I’m sticking with the idea there was midyear exam, to exonerate Hillary, and Crossfite Hurricane, to torpedo DJT.

          Heres my theory, that,I don’t LIKE, but recognise its POSSIBLE.

          Barr agrees with the thinking behind the ‘rule'(NOT law) of the DOJ, that they don’t open a politically charged case, 60 days before an election, out of concern it may EFFECT the election. He BELIEVES in the concept.
          However, he recognises the timeframe is WOEFULLY inadequate in this situation, that at any time after his appointment, unsealing and announcing indictments WOULD, unquestionably have far reaching and unpredictable effects on the,2020 election.

          Now, IIRC, getting SEALED indictments stops the clock on Statute if Limitations. So, he can take his time, build his cases, obtain SEALED indictments, even continue to investigate, but wait until after 2020 elections to unseal.

          Don’t LIKE it, but its reasonable, logical and believable.
          And if, after PDJT wins reelection with the highest ever recorded popular and electoral college vote in history, Barr unseals indictments, and we see perp walks, I will Laugh with joy, as I eat my crow.

      Something fishy there.

      Of course there is. Rubio was supposedly included, although he was never a significant candidate. And conversely, Bernie’s name is missing even though he came very close to beating HRC.

      Is it beneath these deep state hacks to want intel on both the guy (PDJT) they wanted to stop from winning AND on the person (HRC) they wanted and expected to win? They are big on “insurance policies” after all. If HRC won and some of this corruption happened to surface, Strzok, McCabe, et al know HRC would sacrifice them in a (Chappaqua) New York minute. Why not have intel/dirt on “Madame President”, you know, just in case? Ask Chief Justice Roberts if that kind of “insurance policy” works.

    So when Comey went in and through the dossier in Trump’s lap, maybe he really was trying to shake him down. That’s kind of what this indicates.

      Ive thought thats what the purpose of that meeting was ever since. Pure and simple blackmail. Letting Trump know, “We have this, if YOU arent loyal, we will release it.”

      Never bought the explanation that the reason for Comey meeting Trump was to give the press a “hook”, or reason to report it.

      Clapper leaked it, he would have done that anyway, and the press would have run with it regardles..

      Sounds like Overstock would be a great place to shop.

      Sometimes if a business person, or an individual, comes forth and helps the FBI with either information or knowledge of potential or ongoing crime, as this man says he did in two different instances, it is not unusual for the FBI, or other law enforcement agency, to approach that individual again in the hopes that person will be willing to held a third, or fourth time. This is what sounds like happened, these FBI folks wanting an outside person to do their dirty work used this man, not knowing he was being set up to do their dirty work until afterwards realizing he was used, and not only used, but for a truly bad intent.

      I get the impression his coming forward so openly is because he wants to live. So adding him to daily prayers while the renewed DOJ does its work.

      The FBI chose Byrne because he worked with them twice before so he was a reliable and trustworthy source.

    God Bless him and keep him safe and guide his ways throughout these coming days.

    What a remarkable interview!
    This may also explain why the delay with IG reports, un-redactions, et.al., as it sounds like he was able to sit down with AG Barr and show him the lay of the land. And, if it was Warren Buffett that advised Mr. Byrne to go see the AG, the correct AG, Barr, then my opinion of Mr. Buffett has gone up a half a notch too.

    And Thank Goodness someone finally called out that insufferable Jonathan Hoenig; whenever he comes on the TV I immediately turn it off.

        The DOD has been implicated in such payouts/payoffs.

        Obama Brennan coup involved State Dept., DOD, DNI, DOJ, CIA and FBI

        “We know that Stefan Halper was paid $400,000 by the Department of Defense between July of 2016 and Sept of 2017 for his work with John Brennan in trying to entrap George Papadopolous in London. Halper was paid over $1 million dollars by the DOD for reports of dubious value, over 4 years.

        That the DOD was a conduit for the payoff of the Cambridge Professor and American intelligence asset, then DOD head Ash Carter would have had to have been involved. We know Ash Carter and John Brennan tried to have NSA Director Mike Rogers fired the week after Trump was elected.”

          Yup, I know about that. Still a million is not a billion, and he did NOT say cash. He said he was ESSENTIALLY offered a bribe of a billion.
          Thet could have bought his company, or one of them, and added a billion.

          Book deals is obviously another route. And yeah those reports must be some real doozies, to be worth a million.

      a) My guess is that, if true, it wouldn’t have been paid as a lump sum. More leverage to dole it out over time plus he would then be implicated by having accepted a bribe deal.
      b) How many billions were lost/unaccounted for in Iraq? And wasn’t it recently reported that several federal agencies couldn’t account for large portions of their spending?
