Patrick Byrne stepped down from online retailer Overstock.com earlier Thursday after making an explosive claim: that he had a sexual relationship with Russian spy Maria Butina, at the encouragement of the FBI.
Hours after his resignation, he appeared on Fox Business for a wild interview in which he grew increasingly emotional, at times bursting into tears, which culminated with him lashing out at a panelist and calling him a fool. Byrne claimed that he had helped the FBI on a case before, and then again in 2015-16, he “took some orders that seemed a little fishy.”
“I figured out the name of who sent me the orders and this has been confirmed to me,” Byrne continued. “The name of the man who sent me the orders was a guy named Peter Strzok. Got it? Capiche? So this is going to be quite a whirlwind.”
The Qbags will be dissecting this insanity all week.
