Skip to comments.Comey pushes back on ex-Overstock CEO claims: 'The FBI doesn't work that way
Posted on 08/23/2019 12:32:07 PM PDT by Jayster
Former FBI Director James Comey denied claims made by Patrick Byrne, the former CEO of Overstock, about the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Byrne has claimed to multiple news outlets, including the Washington Examiner, that the FBI directed him to rekindle a romantic relationship with Maria Butina, the Russian gun rights activist who admitted in December to conspiring with a senior Russian official to infiltrate conservative American political circles.
The orders came from then-FBI agent Peter Strzok and top officials in the Obama administration, including Comey, Byrne has alleged without providing evidence.
Comey called the allegations ridiculous. "The FBI doesn't work that way," Comey told CNN on Thursday.
Both a lawyer for Strzok and the FBI have declined to comment to the Washington Examiner.
Byrne, 57, revealed in July he had a sexual relationship with Butina after she approached him at a libertarian convention in Las Vegas in July 2015. Byrne said he held a low-level security clearance at the time and reached out to the U.S. government for approval to get to know Butina.

Well, not any more................
The FBI works in a way that allows them to aid in the destruction of hard drives and other evidence.
It looks like the FIB works all sorts of ways, Mr. Corrupt Former FIB Director, sir.
Something land a little too close to home, mayhaps?
Comey lies constantly.
He lied to Congress for years thinking his wordsmanship was brilliant.
Comey has a personality disorder.
“Comey has a personality disorder.”
It’s called treason and sedition!!
“Comey says” is 180 opposite of E F Hutton (for those of us who remember!) The FBI of Comey & Mueller has been weaponized by the deep state. Inigo (Princess Bride) would be discussing language use with Comey here.
I just looked up the word “irony” and lo and behold, they provided an example:
THE FBI DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sure it does. Always has. But hopefully, under Barr, it’ll work FOR the people instead of agin ‘em.
Exactly what I was going to say... We know Jim. That’s why you got fired.
so does that mean jimmie admits to being rogue FBI
I actually do pray to God that you are correct.
Especially in regards to retaliation. They are sneaky conniving serpents.
Comey just got his phrasing wrong. He meant to say, “That’s not who we are.”
Sure Jimmy Boy. I might have been born at night...but it wasn’t last night.
