David Asman just had a mind-blowing interview with Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne in Fox Business that raises the possibility that we may soon know exactly how the Deep State Coup was supposed to work, and who was behind it.
You may have read Sara Carter’s July 26 story about Byrne’s connection to the Russia probe, and been left puzzled by what it all meant.
I was. The connection between Byrne and Russian gun activist Maria Butina was intriguing, as was Byrne’s claim that he was working with the FBI and Justice Department to get more information about Butina and her interest in both American politicians and Russian oligarchs. You got the feeling that you were looking at an important piece of the puzzle but you weren’t sure where it fit.
Asman was doing an interview on “Varney & Co.” with Byrne about cryptocurrency and block chain, but he threw out a random question about Butina, and Byrne delivered a shocking answer that suggested he held the key to the entire Russian hoax.
“By a weird fluke of history, I ended up in the center of the Russian and the Clinton investigations. I have all the answers. I’ve been sitting on them waiting for America to get there.”
Here’s the relevant portion of the interview, which I have posted to YouTube until such time as they remove it.
“It’s all about political espionage; it had nothing to do with law enforcement. … Here’s the bottom line: There is a Deep State like a submarine lurking just beneath the waves at periscope depth watching our shipping lanes, and a nuclear icebreaker — named the USS Bill Barr — has snuck up on them and is about to ram them at midship. …
“I think we’re about to see the biggest scandal in American history as a result. Everything you think you know about the Russia and Clinton investigations is a lie. It is all a coverup. It is all political espionage.”
Asked by Asman if he thinks Barr will get to the bottom of it, Byrne says he thinks he already has.
“Believe it or not, it was political espionage conducted against Hillary Clinton, and I can tell you two of the names involved were John Brennan and James Comey. But there was political espionage conducted against Hillary Clinton, against Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Donald Trump, and everything you think you know about the Russian collusion investigation is a lie. It all will be exposed.”
Byrne has nothing to gain by making this up, and some details of his story have already been confirmed by Sara Carter and others. Let’s hope he is right about how quickly this will be resolved!
UPDATE: Patrick Byrne resigns as Overstock CEO on Aug. 22, 2019:
