Fmr Overstock CEO who attended Trump meeting says “claims military coup/martial law were discussed is 100% fabrication”

Patrick Byrne, former Overstock CEO who attended the Friday meeting with President Trump and Michael Flynn slapped back on reports that Trump discussed a “military/coup.”

Byrne tweeted “I was there for the full 4.5 hour meeting. 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 + Lawyers Eric, Derek, GC Pat Cippollone (leaker)”

He added “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 1/2 hours, I heard the entire conversation, that is a 100% fabrication.”

Byrne appeared to take issue with the advice of some of his advisers.

He wrote “My involvement is I was in the room when it happened. The raised voices included my own. I can promise you: President Trump is being terribly served by his advisers. They want him to lose and are lying to him. He is surrounding by mendacious mediocrities.”

Byrne tweeted several photos of himself at the White House and wrote “to those doubting me.”
