Former Overstock.com CEO Patrick M. Byrne’s press release from last week

“Sara Carter has published two articles relating the following claims of mine:

1. Starting in 2015 I (operating under the belief that I was helping legitimate law enforcement efforts) assisted in what are now known as the ‘Clinton Investigation’ and the ‘Russian Investigation’ (in fact, I am the notorious ‘missing Chapter 1’ of the Russian investigation). It was the third time in my life I helped the Men in Black: the first was when my friend Brian Williams was murdered, and the second was when I helped the M.I.B. shake up Wall Street a decade ago. Unfortunately, this third time turned out to be less about law enforcement and more about political espionage conducted against Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump (and to a lesser degree, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz).

2. In July 2018 I put the pieces together. I immediately (last July) came forward to a Congressman and a senior military officer, to the Department of Justice this April, and (upon my Omaha Rabbi reminding me of my duty as a citizen late this June) to a small set of journalists this summer. Ms. Carter was among them. Her two stories are accurate.

Having confirmed Ms. Carter’s two articles, I have fulfilled those citizenship obligations of which my Rabbi reminded me. I will speak no more on the subject. Instead, having lived in places lacking Rule of Law and having witnessed the consequences of its absence, I plan on sitting back and watching the United States Department of Justicere-establish Rule of Law in our country.”

  2. O/t – A sad day for Libertarians. RIP David Koch.

    Ok, what, who's this again?

  3. On Wall Street, this guy was known to be a kook. He blamed all his problems on naked short selling and made superlative claims about its consequences (and this press release makes superlative claims about what he accomplished). The sort of person who is inclined to blame all his problems on some conspiracy.

    And is he a convert to Judaism?

    It doesn’t mean he’s full of it, but it does mean he has a tendency to be full of it. Who puts out a corporate press release like this? For a public company?

    • I think “Omaha rabbi” means Warren Buffet.

    • He is not a convert to Judaism. He is just a weirdo. The “Rabbi” he is referring to is Warren Buffet. His weirdness aside, his story very much seems to check out. Here is the far more lucid letter written by Butina’s attorney to Durham and Horowitz: https://www.scribd.com/document/422866414/Butina-Lawyer-Letter-7-25-19

    • The guy comes off as a loon.

      If Trump wasnt President, this whole thing would be such a slam dunk for the GOP.

      • If Trump weren’t president, we would never know about what was happening.

      • Trump has exposed the shadow government, and a shadow government civil war been engaged.

      Someone who believes there’s no such thing as bad advertising.

    This is a story I would really like to believe, but I’ll hold my fire for now.

  6. “…this third time turned out to be less about law enforcement and more about political espionage conducted against Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump (and to a lesser degree, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz).”

    Oh looks it’s exactly as I’ve stated that the Bush crime family (Skull and Bones) is behind the Russian collusion hoax. They had John Kerry (Skull and Bones) serve as the Democratic point man/string puller in the Obama administration. When Jeb and the others got slaughtered in the GOP primaries they reverted to plan B which was to support Hillary. She was even made a honorary member of Skull and Bones. When they couldn’t stop Trump either in the primaries or the general they opted to destroy his presidency instead. However with the old man dead and his two idiot sons incapable of doing much plus Kerry having spent much of his political career in the senate (fewer spoils, jobs, favors, perks to give away) looks like everything is falling apart.

    “the Business Roundtable, an association of CEOs of America’s largest companies, surprised the business world with a statement reframing the purpose of business and corporations as stakeholder value, not solely shareholder value.”
