Longtime Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne resigned on Thursday after issuing a bizarre press release that caused the company’s stock to tank.

Byrne then went on Fox News to claim that federal officials urged him to have a romantic relationship with Russian spy Maria Butina.

He claimed that the government told him they never asked citizens to engage in romantic relationships, but it was “such a national security risk” that the government asked Byrne, then in his fifties, to sleep with Butina, who was at the time in her twenties and half his age.
