Former Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne named the FBI officials he claims gave him orders as part of a "deep state" investigation.
Over the course of two Thursday interviews on Fox Business and Fox News, he pinpointed former bureau leaders Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe.
“I got some request, I did not know who the hell it came from and it was fishy and, three years later, I'm watching television and I realized who it was — it was Peter Strzok and [former FBI Deputy Director] Andy McCabe and that's who these orders came from," he told Fox Business.
He said he engaged in a sexual relationship with Russian spy Maria Butina at the encouragement of the FBI, but did not rekindle the romantic aspect of their relationship when asked to do so as the Russia investigation progressed. Byrne said he had been swept up in “political espionage" and a "deep state" plot. Butina was sentenced in April to 18 months in prison for conspiring with a senior Russian official to infiltrate conservative American political circles and influence U.S. relations with Russia.
Byrne, who claimed he was offered a $1 billion "bribe" to keep quiet, said he chose to come forward because he felt guilty, tying the decision to the recent wave of deadly mass shootings.

Hm. It took nearly 4 years to prove Russian collision- oh wait, that ball never got over there net.
Byrne went to the DOJ this April.
I wonder how well your post will age?
