BOMBSHELL? Overstock CEO who had relationship with Maria Butina says he helped set up high-level officials for potential felony charges – Liberty Unyielding

It didn’t get a lot of media coverage on Thursday, but Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com, resigned from his company this week as part of a move to assist Attorney General William Barr with the Spygate probe.

Byrne, recall, is the person who acted essentially as a confidential informant – and also, apparently, as a civilian “handler” of Maria Butina – in the FBI operation revolving around Butina’s link to the Trump campaign.  Byrne doesn’t like putting it that way, because he says it wasn’t really the FBI acting through normal channels that was using him for this purpose.  It was just a few senior officials, whom he names as Peter Strzok, Bill Priestap, John Carlin, Andrew McCabe, and James Comey.
