Former Overstock CEO claims his "army of 'hackers and cyber sleuths'" can prove Trump won reelection

Former Overstock.com CEO claims to have an army of ‘hackers and cyber sleuths’ that can prove Trump won reelection

By Courtney Tanner

The former CEO of Utah-based Overstock.com — an eccentric millionaire who resigned last year after saying he had a romantic relationship with alleged Russian spy Maria Butina at the request of the FBI — said this week that he’s now funding an army of hackers to try to prove that President Donald Trump won reelection.

Patrick Byrne made the claim Tuesday during an interview on One America News, a far-right, pro-Trump cable channel. His accusations that Democrats manipulated the election and stole votes from Trump are unfounded. Still, he said: “I’ve funded a team of hackers and cybersleuths, other people with odd skills” in an attempt to show otherwise.

Byrne, 57, also spoke about his plans this week on several YouTube shows and podcasts hosted by individuals who promote the QAnon conspiracy theory, which alleges a cabal of elites and liberals are involved in a worldwide child pedophile ring that Trump is fighting. At the center of the conspiracy is an anonymous character known as “Q” who posts cryptic messages online. The FBI has labeled the group a potential domestic terror threat.

“I’m a free agent, and I’m self-funded, and I’m funding this army of various odd people,” Byrne told a QAnon supporter during one podcast later reported on by The Daily Beast. “It’s really going to make a great movie someday.”

1. Did Maria Butina tell him about the army?

These guys seem desperate.

2. "It's really going to make a great movie someday..."

A great direct-to-video movie to fill up Overstock.com's warehouse space...

6. This is the butter males story the echo chamber will be sounding for the next four years.

Because it's "funder" is some rich guy nobody has ever heard of with a severe Russian compromise, it will be breathlessly and fact free repeated in the mass media.

What about the 80 million people who know better? How come we aren't hearing anything about them?

8. Unfortunately, the most appropriate title for the movie has already been taken: "Psycho." NT

9. I have evidence that Patrick Byrne is Vladimir Putin's secret sex slave.

And, that he used Overstock.com to funnel money to Iranian terrorists. I have just as much evidence as he has of his allegations.

All these assholes with "evidence" need to put up or shut the fuck up.

10. "My hackers say Trump won" may not be the most convincing testimony
