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:

    Some people are questioning Byrnes’ character and I don’t know the guy to agre or disagree.

    However remember:

    The FBI used a pedophile as source on Manafort, a Russian thug ( to entrap Michael Caputo) and they will use anyone that fits the job.

    They don’t care about who they use. It would make sense that the high profile ( billionaire) chosen spy had some controversies or whatever. They will use that to discredit him when he opens up his mouth.

    Swamp is filthy.

          Initially, Butina’s attorney contacted Patrick Byrne as the attorney believed Byrne may posses or have knowledge about information which may prove to be exculpatory for Butina, and the Federal government has denied any such evidence exists. It appears that the government may not have been truthful. Yet, again…

      This nutcase is planting ideas to make Hillary a co-victim, thus hiding how the FBI, particularly Strzok, gave her a free pass on her email crime spree. Lord knows what he’s cooked up — I don’t trust him for spit. Byrne first says he is coming forward to tell his big story … then that it wouldn’t be appropriate for him to tell it (and basically told us nothing for 20 minutes). Pick one pal. Billion $ Bribe. Give me a break. Dropping Warren Buffet’s name to but credibility (I’m sure WB is pleased that he’ll now be questioned about what they discussed). And Byrne feels responsible every time some nut shoots up a mall? Why — was he helping the FBI hand out guns to nuts? How does it have any connection with political espionage (will he be claiming that Hillary’s election would have fixed all that but she wuz robbed?) Either the guy is a plant, bi-polar, or the Deep State has already spiked his punch.

    And why is he trying to make it sound like the FBI are just a bunch of good guys being forced to do shady things.

      Little Flower…the more I think about it, the more it looks like Brennan—in perpetual cahoots with ValJar, who is 0bama’s keeper—used his minions Comey, McCabe, Strzok at the FBI and elsewhere in the Deep State apparatus to have blackmail material on WHOEVER was going to occupy in the White House next: Hilda, Trump, Rubio OR Cruz.

      If Strzok was the field Marshall giving the foot soldiers’ marching orders, then my belief is that Comrades Brennen, Jarrett (who moves into the 0bama’s HOME immediately after vacating the White House in January 2017) and 0bana wanted to still call the shots on ANY of those four, who seemed the most-likely future occupants of the Executive Branch.

      Hilda May have been a “co-victim” but only the the extent that she could be blackmailed to bend even further to the hard-Leftist plans of the outgoing Preezy, his forever nursemaid and their unscrupulous KGB Boss-wannabe. Gathering blackmail material the Clintons would have taken no time or effort at all; gathering dirt on the others—and particularly political newbie Trump—would require wider nets…enter pawns like Byrne.

    I knew a gal several years ago who was very good friends with a retired CIA Agent. A former BIG CIA Agent. It had just happened that they were practically next door neighbors. It must have been in 2008 when a couple of contractors had accessed Obama’s, Clinton’s and McCain’s passport records I think it was. He told here that his contacts in the CIA told him that they were only interested in Obama,that Clinton and McCain were just so it wouldn’t look that way. The contractors had Obama connections, so they weren’t looking to harm him, but help him by altering the records that had him listed as a foreign student.

    So my guess is that This was all about spying and framing DJT and Clinton/Cruz/Rubio was just some kind of cover.

    I’m not sure why all these Treepers are so surprised by this development. Byrne surfaced a few months ago in relation to Maria Butina. Byrne said pretty much the same thing then without mentioning names.
    Since then, Overstock shares dropped substantially (so Buffett was right) hence Byrne’s resignation from the company.

    Here’s my take.
    The C_A has infiltrated the FIB.
    Strozk is a C_A agent working at the FIB.
    Yes they did also spy on Hillary. They spied on everybody.
    They wanted Hillary to win coz she had so much baggage, she could be easily manipulated. Turned into a puppet if you will.
    This whole saga goes all the way up to Obama. Remember he was spying on many many foreign heads of government including Germany etc.
    They probably spied on many members of congress as well, hence the many strange behaviours by congress critters including strange resignations (Ryan?)

    This goes much deeper than any of us thought. Benghazi, Fast & Furious, IRS, Epstein, are all related via the C_A (and State Department which is closely related)
    I feel like a conspiracy theorist now, but there it is.

        @ islandpalmtrees… Re “why would Barr allow Patrick Byrne to be on FOX NEWS, making himself an even bigger target?/why would you not put Patrick Byrne under protective custody?

        There are a lot of stories about people being killed because of what they know; and, particularly if those people were on the verge of TELLING what they know. In this type situation, you seldom here about people being killed because of what they have already revealed. After they spill the beans, there is a lot less practical reason to kill them and possibly face a murder charge. The damage has already been done; so, the emphasis will now lean more toward 1. denial, 2. character assassination as a part of 3. cover up.

        Character assassination was a small part of what Byrne was referring to when he spoke of being “ground down to dust.” They would have tried to destroy his business if he had not separated himself from it. They still may try.

        Still, Byrne going public and letting the bad guys know he has already told his story to USAG Barr is his best chance of staying alive.

        I believe a “DEAL” was struck between Hillary and Obama, when it became evident that Obama was going to win the nomination…thus her appointment as Secretary of State, along with an agreement he would support her in 2016 for her run as President. She has the goods on him…and he has the goods on her, emails, pay to play, and Clinton Foundation. They could take each other out if either wanted.

          @ Blind no Longer… Re “I have always believed that Hillary Clinton knew something about Obama’s birth certificate. I am convinced she knew he was not eligible to run for President.”

          At the time Obama was born, Kenya was a British Protectorate. Therefore, the Brits kept all the vital records for Kenya. British Intelligence told the Hillary campaign, the Obama campaign, and the McCain campaign the following details about usurper Obama…

          1. Obama senior was the usurper’s real birth father.
          2. Stanley Ann Dunham was NOT his real birth mother.
          3. His real birth mother was one of Obama senior’s several mistresses.
          4. Usurper Obama was actually born in Mombasa, Kenya approximately one year before August 4, 1961, the date used as his date of birth in the official Obama story.

          Re “Can’t remember the guys name who was working for her campaign in 2008 who started the whole thing.”

          His name is Philip Berg. He filed a lawsuit against usurper Obama to get Obama’s real birth records revealed. Like all of the approximately 50 similar court cases, Berg’s also failed.

          I agree with your second paragraph; except, that I think the fact that both Obama and the Clintons knowing so much dirt on each other actually kept either one from being able take the other down.

          I also believe McCain made a mutual agreement with Obama that both would keep quiet about the other’s lack of Constitutional eligibility. McCain was ineligible due to not being born on US soil. Obama was ineligible due to not being born on US soil and not having two US citizen parents. Actually, if the Brit’s info about him being born in Mombasa and Stanley Ann Dunham not being his real birth mother is true; and, I believe it is, he had no legal grounds AT ALL for claiming he was even a US citizen!

But , I believe that Jeb Bush officially dropped out of the race in Feb. of 2016, so anyone involved in the operation after that would have had little reason to spend too much capital spying on him.

    I’m sorry, but I believe the guy is selling a load of crap.
    The walls are closing in on the perps, and this clown pops up to turn suspicion away from clinton,
    WHO FUNDED THE STEELE DOSSIER!
    He keeps repeating “political espionage against hillary clinton, and (some other people)”.
    Trump is mentioned last, and in passing.
    This guy is full of it. He was put up to this to direct attention away from clinton.
    You are a lying sack of horseshite, Patrick.

      Latest headline for Hillary Clinton “Update: Court Gives Judicial Watch Additional Discovery and Witnesses on Hillary Clinton Email Scandal”

      And, you have Barr’s looking into Hillary Clinton servers.

      Do you hear or see anything out of vComey, Brennan, Lynch, etc.? No

      This guys all know, they are in trouble.

      Also: If anyone is confused or perplexed that Byrne claims Hilary Clinton was under surveillance, there’s an easy explanation: blackmail to be used in the future

        Hillary connections to Epstein, Benghazi rop operation, Clinton Foundation, Haiti, big monied people, Warren Buffett, Rothchild’s, bankers, etc. Lots of reasons to surveil Hillary. She was used to being the top dog, giving not taking orders.
        FBI director could not indict Hillary in the home brew E-mail
        scandal is probably due to the fact that President Obama communicated with her on her elicit home brew server.
        I believe Mr. Byrne is very smart and credible. His personality is “out there” like Carter Page. There are both unusual.

      I believe surveillance data was stored as potential leverage on every individual that was of interest: Judiciary, Congress, Uberdonors, executive branch.

      It’s not a political party thing. It’s about control. as permanent custodians,

        Very concise, Ann. A good way to pick a starting point – the biggest two bangs our world has ever seen. No need to track back to Illuminati escaping Troy just ahead of the horse. Sure, 1066, 1913 and all that. Yours is as good of a starting point as any I’ve heard, and people can use this framework to produce accurate work. We don’t need to know everything.

        (Well, unless the dinosaurs’ SMOD is a real thing; that would be the biggest boom we’d know about.)

    Funny that Fox ran with this at all, after the huge left turn they’ve taken over the past 24 months.

    Odd that Fredo would interview him, too. Unless someone big is about to go down and they want to provide a witness/evidence that Hillary was just an innocent victim, too. *wink wink*

    The most curious and interesting part is his relationship with the Russian, Maria Butina. She was convicted of not registering as a foreign lobbyist with the DOJ and sentenced to 18 months in jail. It was claimed that Butina was enlisting the NRA to work with Russia on election interference. This sounds like another FBI setup. Strzok directed Byrne to get close to Butina.

    Primary time.

    Cruz, Rubio and Hillary.

    The DNC emails were stolen. Possibly someone inside her campaign. ( Seth Rich? ) was the spy involved in that?

    He said on Martha McCalum he lied to the FBI for 6 months about his relationship with Butina.

    He said he sat on this info for 3 years until Barr came along. He didn’t trust the gov before that.

    Hmmmm….he told Martha or Fredo, I forget already, that he had told the whole story to Buffet.
    However, Buffet said he didn’t in July:

    Buffet, whom Byrne describes as his ‘Rabbi,’ sent SaraACarter.com a statement Tuesday night confirming his meeting with Byrne at his home in Omaha, Nebraska several weeks ago.

    “I’ve known Patrick and his family for more than 40 years,” Buffet said in an email to this reporter. “His father, Jack Byrne, saved GEICO in 1976 and I met his three boys when they were teenagers. Both Mark, the middle son, and Patrick, the youngest, worked for Berkshire Hathaway. Patrick helped the company without pay in solving a difficult business problem. Patrick is very intelligent and patriotic. He comes by Omaha periodically to see me. At the most recent visit – a few weeks ago – though I know nothing about the subject he was describing, I told him to follow his conscience.”

      Sounds like Mr. Byrne is a jittery fellow who was trying to find the lesser of two evils. He was stuck between a rock and a hard place and was looking for advice.

      “Follow your conscience ” is code for good luck buddy and I am glad I am not in your shoes.

      This could have also been Byrne giving Buffet a heads up on what he was about to do, Buffett didn’t agree but saw he could not change his mind.

      Buffet is either a neutral party or only tangentially affected.

      Either way, this is a drastic turn to take and whatever put him in this situation, he thinks this is the way out. Someone who is good at solving business problems is generally self reliant and knows how to analyze systems processes and make determinations for positive outcomes or least negative outcomes. They usually trust their own instincts and analysis over others opinions.

      This is a play to avoid some worse fate.

    We watched the Martha McCallum interview, this Maria Butina is in deep with this, suspected Western asset. This video followed on youtube after. It’s Glenn Beck (not a fan), but another angle.

    Then again, it’s Glenn Beck, frickin’ never-trumper.

    This better not be another set-up against POTUS, I *think* Patrick Byrne says it was a set-up against the Trump campaign, did anyone catch it for sure in his McCallum interview? He was hard to follow at times.

    Byrnes is a right winger. I am sure of that! That is the reason I have been shopping at Overstock for years. I haven’t been to Target in many many years. I’m a political shopper. I research that stuff.

    Byrnes was/ is friends with Glenn Beck. Back in days, when Glenn was going after Obama.
    Both were most likely spied on by Obama for being a political opponent.

    The pull quote so you don’t have to click on cnn if you would prefer not to 🙂

    Justice officials found aspects of Byrne’s story to be believable in part because he shared operational details that were not widely known, the US official said. The official would not say who Byrne met with and what specifically was discussed.

    • Byrne took a medical leave of absence from Overstock, in April of 2016, because of complications due to Hepatitis C. He returned a few months later, in July of 2016, and has functioned as the CEO until today, August 22, 2019, when he announced his resignation.
