WASHINGTON (PNN) - December 20, 2020 - Former Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne blasted President Donald Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows and White House lawyers in comments posted online Sunday about a meeting with Trump at the White House Friday night about the contested presidential election, which Byrne attended with attorney Sidney Powell and former Trump national security advisor Lt. General Michael Flynn (U.S. Army ret.), saying that Trump is being “betrayed from within”. Byrne also denied the reporting that a military coup or martial law was discussed.
“I was in the room when it happened. The raised voices included my own. I can promise you that President Trump is being terribly served by his advisers. They want him to lose and are lying to him. He is surrounded by mendacious mediocrities.” In addition, any suggestion if there was talk of a military coup or martial law is also a flat lie. 100% false. I was there for 4 ½ hours, I heard the entire conversation, that is a 100% fabrication.”
Byrne called out White House Counsel Pat Cipollone as the leaker to The New York Times about the meeting and accused Meadows and White House staffers of lying to Trump to get him to concede. “Claims military coup/martial law were discussed is 100% fabrication. Trump is lied to by his own advisers, who tell staff ‘get the president to concede’ while they stall Trump. Meadows and lawyers Eric, Derek, GC Pat Cippollone (leaker).”
Byrne named the advisors he believes are hurting Trump, “Pat Cippollone and two other lawyers. Eric and Derek. Meadows want him to concede and transition.”
Responding to a poster who offered an opinion on why the establishment is intent on getting rid of Trump, “I’m convinced the (Fascist Police States of Amerika) establishment, including the Republican establishment, have decided to end the Trump era. They want Biden/Harris and the Globalist Reset. The reason they have resorted to such extreme measures is because the Reset is time critical. They need the (FPSA) on board now.”
Byrne replied, “Correct.”
Byrne responded to several questions about the meeting and Trump’s attitude. It is 100% winnable. No martial law required. Sydney and Flynn presented a course that I estimate has 50% - 75% chance of victory. His staff just try to convince him to do nothing but accept it. As a CEO, my heart broke to see what he is going through. He is betrayed from within.”
“He truly believes he won and he truly did win. I did not vote for him, but I don’t want to see our country hijacked in a psyop.”
“Trump is too nice. Thinks he will look bad in the press. Nonsense like that. He wants to fight on. They are bending over backwards to come up with reasons to tell him he can’t do anything. He needs to fire them all or he loses.”
Byrne has a strong dislike of Cipollone, blasting when asked who leaked the meeting, “White House General Counsel Pat Cippolone. I’m not afraid of these weasels. A greasy slickster like Pat Cippollone leaks lies. I tell the truth publicly. No intelligence was involved. It was the White House general counsel and his team.”
Byrne posted photos from the White House to prove he was there Friday night.
Byrne published a detailed analysis on the rigged election in November.
