Former Overstock CEO testifies to January 6 committee for nearly 8 hours

(CNN)

Former Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne, an ally of former President Donald Trump, testified behind closed doors before the House select committee investigating January 6, 2021, for nearly eight hours on Friday.

He entered the committee conference room a little before 10 a.m. ET and ended before 7 p.m. ET, with an hour lunch break. He took several small breaks to confer with his lawyer throughout the meeting.

Byrne played an active role supporting efforts to question and push baseless claims about the 2020 election, including attending a meeting in mid-December at the White House to discuss strategies to overturn the election.

2. I wondered if he only testified because Trump pardoned him. Hopefully the Committee has

enough goods on him already that he knew wouldn't get away with lying.

4. Isn't this the guy who was also cavorting with convicted Russian spy...

...Maria Butina? Hopefully there were lots of questions about that.

Butina really got around...she infiltrated a lot of right-wing groups including the NRA.
