A week ago Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne gave an interview with SaraAcarter.com detailing the “greatest political scandal in U.S. history.“, where he confirms handing over documents and testimony to the Department of Justice on the origin of the Hillary Clinton email scandal and the Russian interference probe. This week Byrne announced his resignation from Overstock after admitting to having affair convicted Russian Spy Maria Butina.

In a letter to shareholders he wrote “My presence may affect and complicate all manner of business relationships… Thus, while I believe that I did what was necessary for the good of the country, for the good of the firm, I am in the sad position of having to sever ties with Overstock, both as CEO and board member.”

On Aug 12 Byrne made a statement titled “Overstock.com CEO Comments on Deep State, Withholds Further Comment.” The statement reads,

“Starting in 2015 I (operating under the belief that I was helping legitimate law enforcement efforts) assisted in what are now known as the ‘Clinton Investigation’ and the ‘Russian Investigation’ (in fact, I am the notorious ‘missing Chapter 1’ of the Russian investigation). It was the third time in my life I helped the Men in Black: the first was when my friend Brian Williams was murdered, and the second was when I helped the M.I.B. shake up Wall Street a decade ago. Unfortunately, this third time turned out to be less about law enforcement and more about political espionage conducted against Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump (and to a lesser degree, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz).

After announcing his resignation shares in Overstock rose 8.3 percent.

The Department of Justice, has yet to release any further findings on the origin of Russiagate or any more details in the Hillary CLinton email scandal.
