Overstock founder and CEO, Patrick Byrne, resigned last week amid ties to a government probe related to the 2016 election. He made the wild accusation that he received “fishy” orders from former FBI official Peter Strzok to have a romantic relationship with a young Russian woman, Maria Butina. She is now serving prison time in the US for failing to register as a foreign agent. He says that the FBI’s mission was not a law enforcement issue, but was political espionage targeting Hillary Clinton, Marco Rubia, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. Byrne said that Peter Strzok gave the orders and the trail leads to former FBI Director James Comey.

Overstock founder and CEO Patrick Byrne, who resigned Thursday amid ties to a government probe related to the 2016 election, claimed he received “fishy” orders from former FBI official Peter Strzok.

Byrne said Thursday on “The Story” he’d helped the federal government with investigations twice in the past, including to “help them take down people on Wall Street.”

Several years after Byrne’s last contact with the government, he said FBI officials reached out to him in 2016.

“I was given some fishy orders and I carried them out in 2015-2016, thinking I was conducting law enforcement,” he said.

He claimed people who he characterized as “the Men in Black” came to him and asked him “for this third favor.”

Byrne clarified to host Martha MacCallum that FBI rank-and-file were “barely involved” in what he alleged transpired.

“It’s all the top [people],” he said.

“I didn’t know who sent the orders, but I did them. Last summer, watching television and some congressional hearings, I figured out where these orders came from. They came from a guy named Peter Strzok.” Byrne also named other individuals, with MacCallum reminding him those officials or former officials worked at the FBI.
