Daily Crunch: Overstock CEO resigns

The Daily Crunch is TechCrunch's roundup of our biggest and most important stories. This comes after CEO Patrick Byrne released a statement declaring that he cooperated with federal investigators back in 2015 and was in fact "the notorious 'missing chapter 1' of the Russia investigation." He subsequently gave interviews that also touched on his relationship Maria Butina, who's been accused of working as a Russian agent. The search giant, which owns YouTube, followed in the footsteps of Twitter and Facebook, which earlier this week said China had used their social media sites to spread misinformation and discord among the protesters.
