Former FBI agent Peter Strzok, who was as the center of the Trump-Russian collusion investigation, has once again been thrust onto the political stage an accused of “political espionage.
Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne has said that Strzok was involved in a “political espionage” caper against Sens. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, as well as Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton back in 2015.
Byrne made the comments to CNN’s Chris Cuomo, who questioned the remarks, saying that they sounded like they came out of left field.
According to Byrne, the Strzok and the FBI approached him in 2015 and asked him to help them with law enforcement activities, but that those “activities” turned out to be nothing more than a political witch hunt
“I took some requests from the FBI. They passed a request from me to do some stuff 2015-2016,” said Byrne.
Byrne said that the go-between with Peter Strzok, a claim he says has already been verified by federal authorities, adding that it was Warren Buffet who told me to approach authorities, urging him to come forward with the complaint.
