Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne says BILL BARR About to Break Biggest Scandal in American History

    From the "I was at Ground Zero", files: WOW! Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne Fires Off Warning Shot to Deep State — BILL BARR is About to Break Biggest Scandal in American History

    Patrick Byrne: I ended up in the center of the Russian and the Clinton investigations ... a nuclear ice breaker called the USS Bill Barr has snuck up on them and is about to ram midship.

    That’s about to happen and I think we’re about to see the biggest scandal in American history as a result. But it was all political. Everything you think you know about Russia and Clinton investigations is a lie. It’s all a cover-up. It was all political espionage.



    Here's more detail ...
    Russia Probe Twist: A Billion Dollar CEO, A Convicted Russian Agent And The FBI

    Byrne’s decision to come forward didn’t come lightly. However, he said it was necessary after watching what had transpired between the FBI, the intelligence community and the probe into President Trump’s campaign over the past several years.

    “It was something I knew I had to do,” he told this reporter. “Those running the operation were not honest and in the end I realized I was being used in some sort of soft coup.”

    Familiar with the possible backlash he will face, he made the decision to go public after speaking to his mentor and longtime friend billionaire Warren Buffet, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway. Buffet ... sent SaraACarter.com a statement Tuesday night confirming his meeting with Byrne at his home in Omaha, Nebraska several weeks ago

    ooookay... So, this guy was one of many to get ensnared by the Russian honey pot (?kissel pot?) Maria Butina and that now makes him an expert on stuff.

    I wonder if that was how he really contracted Hep C.

    When a poster looks for unvarnished, unbiased truth in investigative reporting, he always looks toward a CEO who got a big tax cut.

    Thanks DaisyDay. :oldthumbsup: Getting approval on One out of two is not bad.

    There were actually three sources altogether though. Fox Business did the interview. Gateway Pundit merely provided the quotes. Sara A Carter was the reporter apparently chosen by Patrick Byrne to break the story. She's good. Really good. Her reporting enhances Patrick Byrnes' credibility a lot.

    Not only is Trump's personal behavior completely amoral and disgusting, he can't help but use his ill-gained power to keep hammering on his "enemies."

    And his DOJ enabler acted with complete dishonesty and untrustworthiness.

    Subsequent to Byrnes' interview, Sara Carter confirmed that John Durham is investigating Byrnes' claims:
    Overstock CEO Turned Over Docs To DOJ ‘on FBI’s Russian and Hillary Clinton Probes’

    Connecticut attorney John Durham, who has been appointed by Justice Department investigator Attorney General William Barr is probing the FBI’s handling of the investigation into Russia probe, and according to several sources is investigating the full extent of Byrne’s claims and the documentation he provided in April.​

    Why would the CEO of Overstock.Com be privy to this.

    Because he had sex with convicted Russian agent, Maria Butina. He's like James Bond.

    Apparently, he's a protege' of Warren Buffett, experienced handling large sums of money internationally, and acted as an intermediary in a tale of international espionage.

    It doesn't seem as if Byrne and Buffett would be friends. Buffett is a good judge of character.

    I now know another online company to boycott.

    Byrne may be embroiled with the Russians himself.

    Doubtful. If you read the Sara Carter story, Byrne had a security clearance. When he was approached by a Russian woman half his age who wanted to 'pretend' to have a relationship so that she could get him in contact with important Russian figures, he did what any right thinking American (but not certain presidential family members) would do -- immediately tell the feds. He was worried about jeopardizing his clearance, so he was open about what was going on.

    They told him it was ok to move forward, and it seems he kept them informed of what was going on.

    The beef seems to be that in Butina's trial, none of this information from an informant was made available to the defense.

    I have no idea about the legal ins or outs, but at this point, the most exciting thing I see coming out of this is a retrial for Butina.

    However, in order to sell his new cryptocurrency, Byrne made more exciting noises to Fox Business. "I'm on Trump's side. I'm on your side. I know a lot about money. Send me your dollars for my cryptocurrency."

    If defense did not get everything per law, a new trial should be held.

    Wasn't Buffet just Soros jr? Why would he be encouraging this move?
