“The CEO of Overstock.com resigned from the company Thursday after a bizarre series of interviews where he said he was part of the “deep state” and developed a romantic relationship with Maria Butina, the woman accused of being a Russian spy, ahead of the 2016 election at the behest of the FBI. The resignation came after the company issued a truly wacky press release earlier this month titled “Comments on the Deep State” from company head Patrick Byrne where Byrne confirmed he had had a relationship with Butina and included references to “Men in Black,” “political espionage,” murder, and a reference to the “Omaha Rabbi,” which Byrne says is a moniker for investor Warren Buffet. On Thursday, Byrne appeared on Fox Business News to explain himself. It didn’t help. “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 during an erratic, emotional back-and-forth.”
