In his first interview since resigning, former Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne told host David Asman on FOX Business Network’s (FBN) Bulls & Bears(5-6PM/ET) that he resigned to protect the company from the wrath of the “Washington apparatus.”
Byrne said it was important to resign from Overstock.com because he believes that the Washington “apparatus” is going to come after him for coming forward about a deep state plot to spy on several politicians.
“I have to because I’ve been warned that if I come forward to America that the apparatus of Washington is going to grind me into dust,” he told Asman. “And that’s going to happen and I have to get that away from the company, it’s only right.”
Byrne pointed to Peter Strzok and three unnamed officials who he believes were conspiring to spy on Clinton, Rubio, Cruz and Trump.
” I only figured out last summer who had sent me these requests was a guy named Peter Strock and he was doing it on behalf of three officials,” Byrne said. “And as I’ve put together things, I know much more than I should know and is right to keep silent.”
“The bottom line is, the big cover-up, there was political espionage conducted against Hillary Clinton – against Hillary Clinton, Marc Rubio, Cruz and Donald Trump. And this isn’t a theory of mine, this isn’t a political position, I was in the room when it happened, I was part of it. I thought I was doing law enforcement.”
