(Gateway Pundit) – Last week Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne joined David Asman on FOX Business and he hinted that he was interviewed by the FBI for his involvement with Russian Maria Butina.
Byrne fired off a warning shot to the deep state.
Patrick Byrne: I ended up in the center of the Russian and the Clinton investigations. I have all the answers. I have been sitting on them waiting for America to get there. Last summer I figured out… what they all are is all about political espionage. It had nothing to do with law enforcement, it was all political espionage. Here’s the bottom line. There is a deep state like a submarine working just beneath the waves of the periscope depth watching our shipping lane. And 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.
David Asman: You think Bill Barr is going to get to the bottom of it.
Patrick Byrne: I think he has gotten to the bottom of it.
On Thursday Patrick Byrne resigned from Overstock over his relationship with an alleged Russian intelligence operative jailed for meddling in US politics.
Byrne went on with Martha MacCallum to discuss his resignation. Byrne also talked about deep state revelations and as Conservative Treehouse wrote, “The substance of Mr. Byrne claims does seem to align with what we already know about the DOJ and FBI activity during the 2016 election cycle.” Much of it anyway.
Sundance at Conservative Treehouse added:
If Byrne is accurate; and if his claims of him personally being an operative of the FBI with instructions to engage Ms. Butina inside the political espionage events structured by corrupt FBI officials are genuine; it would appear Special Counsel Robert Mueller facilitated throwing a bag over Ms Butina in an effort to keep the corrupt FBI intelligence operation hidden from the public. This would explain the Mueller demand for strict solitary isolation and confinement. [The reports are indeed troubling]
Again, if Byrne is correct, it would appear that extremely significant and exculpatory Brady material -evidence that could easily prove an entrapment defense- was intentionally withheld from Ms. Butina’s defense team. Alarmingly this points to ongoing corrupt officials that still remain inside the current DOJ. Ms. Butina was collateral damage…
…In December of 2015 Mr. Byrne became suspicious of the FBI motives because he warned FBI officials of a potential that his efforts, his reputation and those who trust him, may result in Butina gaining entry into campaign confidences. The FBI agents told Byrne that was exactly the intent; people high up in the FBI wanted Ms. Butina to gain deep access into the Trump campaign. Mr. Byrne became suspicious of a corrupt political motive, but didn’t say anything at the time.
Additionally Byrne’s assistance was requested for an investigation of a high-level government official, he later named as Hillary Clinton.
[Sidebar: It’s noteworthy that during these FBI engagements Byrne was never requested to facilitate Ms. Butina into the Bernie Sanders campaign. The inference in that omission is the Dem primary was rigged, and the riggers saw no value wasting time on Bernie]
In/around Feb or March 2016 Byrne was told to focus Ms. Butina’s attention to the campaign of Donald Trump and to diminish any attention toward Rubio or Cruz.
The assistance of the investigation of the federal official (Hillary Clinton) ended in late June and early July of 2016. Immediately thereafter Ms. Clinton was publicly -and unusually- cleared by FBI Director James Comey on July 5th, 2016.
In/around this same June & July time-frame (2016), FBI agents requested Mr. Byrne to focus on developing a closer romantic relationship with Ms. Butina and to use his influence to target her to closer proximity with the Trump family and Trump campaign.
It was within these June and July 2016 engagements where FBI agents were apologetic about the requests and specifically mentioned their instructions were coming from three principle FBI officials Byrne described as “X, Y and Z”. Later Byrne identified FBI Director James Comey as “Z”.
In the Fox MacCallum interview Byrne named James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Bill Priestap, John Carlin (DOJ-NSD) and Peter Strzok. Mr. Byrne said the specific instructions were coming to the agents from Special Agent Peter Strzok as he relayed the requests of those above him [X, Y and Z (Comey)].
As time has passed many are now suspecting that Byrne may be crazy or may be inserting himself in the Russia – Collusion sham to deflect the crimes committed against candidate and President Trump in an effort to soften the news expected to come out soon showing criminal acts by the Deep State.
Everyone on this media site knows that the Obama Deep State FBI, DOJ, State and Intel communities were involved in a coup attempt to remove President Trump from office after their efforts to destroy him in the general election failed. To date there is no knowledge that others were targeted, although it could certainly be possible.
But to suggest that Hillary Clinton in any way was a target of the Deep State is preposterous. This simply does not register with any actions taken by the Deep State to date.
Many others are thinking the same –
The questionable bit in all of this is – he said he sat on this for several months, but then he names HRC twice as a “victim” of this espionage, alongside Trump, Rubio, and Cruz.
You have to wonder… is she really a victim here? Is Byrne trying to help Clinton by listing her as a “victim” when really, she’s a perpetrator? Or is he just flat-out wrong on this point, not knowing any better?

Interested parties are suggesting the same on Twitter –
Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne is no saint. His inclusion of Clinton as a victim in Comey's illegal spying operation is telling. Either he is trying to earn credibility by not appearing partisan, or he's part of a narrative to throw Comey to the wolves to insulate Hillary. #panic https://t.co/o4HqGjxU09

Parts of Byrne’s story certainly align with the corruption that has been ongoing for years in the Obama Deep State but naming Hillary as a victim is heresy. Overall this indicates that the Deep State has given up on Comey and Strzok in an effort to save Hillary.
