Overstock Ex-CEO Goes on Insane Rant to Fox Business: Peter Strzok Gave Me Deep State Orders!

Hours after stepping down as the chief executive of online retail giant Overstock.com following the turmoil he created by revealing his romantic relationship with Russian spy Maria Butina and the wild claims he made about being involved in a Deep State government plot, Patrick Byrne appeared on Fox Business Network on Thursday to talk about his resignation.

At times bursting into tears, Byrne alleged there was a “big coverup” of political espionage that was connected to President Trump, Hillary Clinton, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, insisting that “this is not a theory” of his because he was “in the room when it happened.”

“Both catching my friend’s murderer and taking on Wall Street were consistent with my values and it was my honor to help the Men in Black and it was the third time that they came to me,” he said at one point. “And I got some request, I did know who the hell it came from and it was fishy and three years later on washing television and I realized who it was—it was Peter Strzok and [former Deputy FBI Director] Andy McCabe, that the orders came from.”
