Overstock Founder CEO Patrick Byrne 'Men in Black' update
[PJ] Overstock founder and CEO Patrick Byrne decided to go public this week with information "about political espionage" in the 2016 election that he thinks will be "the biggest scandal in American history." The businessman said that he had gone to his mentor Warren Buffet for advice and that Buffet had advised him to come forward. What Byrne proceeded to allege in his 22-minute interview with Fox News' Martha MacCallum was his shady work as an informant for the FBI in 2015 and 2016.

"It's going to make some feds furious at me," Byrne told MacCallum Thursday night. "Their heads are going to explode." Byrne also claimed that former FBI director James Comey will "crap his pants" when he finds out that he has spilled the beans about the FBI's election-year espionage activities to the Department of Justice.

The business executive said that he didn't feel like it was safe to come out until the "rule of law" had returned to the country, explaining that he trusted Attorney General William Barr to set things right.

#1  Byrne also claimed that former FBI director James Comey will "crap his pants"

Story sounds a little unhinged, but the Comey visual is delightful enough. Let's follow !
