Oops! GOP/Fox News/RW talking point debunked.

Well no ****. That's been known for quite a while. Question has always been whether or not the dossier was used for the FISA warrant like Solo has asked. Vox is just repeating something that's already well known to it's uniformed readers like it puts the dossier's problems to rest.

Well perhaps they should stop saying it then, huh?

Original investigation was effectively dead upon the denial of the FISA warrant on the first request. It kinda goes without saying we are talking about the active investigation.

Who is saying it?

Again, allegedly, the Dossier was used to get the FISA warrant on the 2nd attempt.

Does it not interest you how the FISA warrant was obtained?

My understanding was that while there could not be confirmation on the most outrageous claims in the dossier, enough of it was proven to be true and that is why they obtained a FISA warrant.

There should be no problem with outlining the verified aspects of the dossier that lead to them granting the warrant then. I'll wait, but not with any expectation of every getting a legit answer.

So basically they testified to unnamed persons dying, alleged tax returns, and alleged connections that are alleged criminals.

Throw the book at him.

That will just help expedite the release of items that Grassley wants to show everyone. And his are a lot more juicy than the testimony of a couple of guys who created a fake dossier and are pleading the 5th.
