Well. This is getting nuts. The former Overstock CEO went on Fox News and said he was told by the FBI to sleep with the convicted Russian spy Marina Butina. Then he went on CNN and said it was Peter Strzok who assigned him to the lurid operation.
The outspoken CEO of online home goods retailer Overstock has resigned, days after he issued a press release entitled "Comments on Deep State" that claimed he helped the FBI carry out "political espionage." He joins CNN's @ChrisCuomo to discuss. https://t.co/tmKjMhB8UQ pic.twitter.com/pYkHIsj6r0— Cuomo Prime Time (@CuomoPrimeTime) August 23, 2019
He has left his company because of his bizarre comments, and honestly I’m not sure what to make of them. He says that is has been confirmed to him that Strzok was the guy that asked him to commit “political espionage” against Trump and Hillary and others. But he doesn’t give any evidence, and gets angry when asked to prove it.
Here’s the entire interview with Fox News:
He says that he helped them set up political blackmail against Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Trump. Uhm. Wow.
At the end he says that if you just say his name to Comey or Strzok, that they will “crap their pants.” Someone do that on video please.
I mean, if the claims he made are proven, then it’s pretty yuge. Enormous. Deep state. Evil. Apocalypse. Also, he seems a little nuts. Let’s see how this one plays out, shall we?
Finally, if you want to help him out, he says go buy a pillow at overstock.
