    Overstock founder and CEO Patrick Byrne stepped down Thursday morning, but the billionaire didn't take the rest of the day off.

    Instead, he went on a media blitz sharing further details on his "deep state" involvement that caused him to leave his firm, and says former FBI agent Peter Strzok pulled him into what was — unbeknownst to Byrne — a political espionage operation targeting President Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio.

    What are the details?
    Last month, investigative reporter Sara Carter reported that Byrne reached out to the FBI in 2015 after meeting Russian gun-rights activistMaria Butina and questioning her motives. Byrne says after being given the all-clear, he became involved in a romantic relationship with Butina, and later rekindled the intimate relationship at the behest of federal law enforcement. The young woman has since pleaded guilty to not registering as a foreign agent.

    Last week, Byrne confirmed in a news release to shareholders that he had, as Carter reported, assisted in what he thought were "legitimate law enforcement efforts" with "what are now known as the 'Clinton Investigation' and the 'Russian Investigation.'"

    I think he thinks (and his 'Rabbi' Warren Buffet) 'going public' with it will protect him.
