Patrick Byrne met with President Donald Trump in the Oval Office on Dec. 18, 2020, to urge him to investigate allegations of election fraud. Byrne, the founder and former CEO of online retailer Overstock, is set to testify before the Jan. 6 House Select Committee on July 15.

In an exclusive interview with The Epoch Times, Byrne recounted his meeting with Trump, which included former national security adviser Michael Flynn and Sidney Powell, former attorney to Trump’s campaign and former federal prosecutor, along with a number of White House officials.

The roughly 4.5-hour meeting was “nothing like it has been reported,” Byrne said in an interview with EpochTV’s “Facts Matter” program on July 14.

Byrne said he used a prior invitation from a White House staffer for a tour of the building as a way to gain entry with Flynn and Powell, with the hope of getting to talk to the president about his plan to investigate the widespread allegations of voter fraud.

“We were always after the most minimal on that range of options, which was to do a quick investigation that we said could be done in a few days,” Byrne said of the plan.

‘Perfectly Reasonable Conversation’

Byrne describes a chance encounter with the president as he walked by that enabled the group to meet in the Oval Office. The trio presented to Trump two executive orders—one signed by former President Barack Obama in 2015 and one by Trump in 2018—which, they said, gave Trump the authority to launch an investigation in the event of foreign interference in the election.

“It has nothing to do with the theories of vote flipping from space. It has nothing to do with the alleged South Korean jets, or Germany this, or Italy that, or any of that,” Byrne said.

Instead, Byrne said, “the argument that was made to the president was that under two executive orders … that say if a foreign nation interferes in one of our elections, disrupts an election, the president really gets a range of options.”

Patrick Byrne Reveals What Was Discussed in Secret White House Meeting with Flynn, Powell, and Trump

On the morning of July 15, Patrick Byrne, founder and former CEO of Overstock, will give closed-door testimony to the January 6th Select Committee regarding a meeting that was held in the White House on Dec. 18, 2020.

That meeting—which had President Donald Trump, General Michael Flynn, and Sidney Powell in attendance—has been shrouded in a veil of mystery for the past two years, largely because even though what was said in the meeting is unknown, an hour after the meeting concluded, Trump issued his famous tweet calling for people to come to Washington on Jan. 6 for a protest—adding that it “will be wild.”

And so the question has been: what took place during that meeting?

In an exclusive interview with The Epoch Times, Byrne answered that question.
