I mean… really, in the grand scheme of things, this isn’t a big deal. It’s a typo that doesn’t impact the substance of any legal argument. And you know what they meant to write. But *but* it is also a decent laugh.
In a FISA court filing by the FBI, the signature block misspells the name of its general counsel. Instead of Dana Boente, they write Dane. Classic facepalm moment. But what gives it the extra pop, is that the filing was about errors in past filings… which is just glorious.
As Washington Post reporter Devlin Barrett points out:
Not a bad quick laugh to start out your Monday morning.
