2) The report is triumph for former House Intel Chair Devin Nunes, who first blew the whistle on FISA abuse. The report confirms all the elements of the February 2018 Nunes memo, which said dossier was as an "essential" part of applications, and FBI withheld info from FISA court

FACT CHECK: During that Stanton-Goldman exchange, it was claimed that Republicans were able to call our own witnesses during the impeachment inquiry. That’s a total lie. We were permitted to make REQUESTS ONLY & the only 3 granted were the 3 people also on the Dem witness list.

The IG report states that the FBI made 17 “errors.” The laws of probability apply. If these were random errors, you’d expect about half to be in Trump’s favor and half not. Well, if you do the math, the chance of all 17 being against Trump are roughly 1 in a million. It’s bias.

I've spoken to 2 miners since the #Dash open house. Interestingly, both expressed support for my proposal. They already considered their mining equipment as "sunk cost" yet both also owned significant amounts of Dash. They therefore preferred the path that delivers value.
