Former Overstock.com CEO Patrick Byrne said that he's financing "a team of hackers and cybersleuths" in an attempt to prove that President Donald Trump won the 2020 presidential election, according to The Daily Beast.
Byrne, who stepped down from his position at Overstock last year after admitting to a relationship with a Russian spy, recently went on the One America News Network (OAN), a conservative news outlet and a favored media destination of Trump, to detail what he described as a "rigged" election process.Dominion Voting Systems, a company that provided election voting software in several key presidential battlegrounds, has been a target for right-wing grievances about the presidential election. For weeks, the company has sought to fend off debunked and outlandish allegations that the company facilitated voting irregularities.
"I've funded a team of hackers and cybersleuths and other people with odd skills" to uncover fraud, he said in the interview.Despite the Trump campaign's numerous attempts to prove otherwise in court, there have been no verifiable instances of mass voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
