On Aug. 18, the Senate Intelligence Committee released volume five of its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The new version found that former CEO of Overstock.com (NASDAQ:) and noted crypto advocate Patrick Byrne was a patsy to plans by Maria Butina, who is currently serving time for espionage on behalf of Russia.
The romance between Butina and Byrne was the reason the latter gave upon his departure from Overstock last year. Always an eccentric character, Byrne’s account of the relationship said that he was working with U.S. intelligence.
