Dear @FERC
I heard Congress sent you a follow up - their investigation will continue no matter WHAT.

“Federal Energy Regulatory Commission - seeking documents about its procedures for resolving conflicts between landowners and natural gas pipeline construction companies..” https://oversight.house.gov/sites/democrats.oversight.house.https://oversight.house.gov/sites/democrats.oversight.house.https://oversight.house.gov/sites/democrats.oversight.house.https://oversight.house.gov/sites/democrats.oversight.house.
@FERC “In order to help us better understand these various issues we request the following information no later than December 4, 2020. All requests apply to the time period from September 19, 1999, to the present...”

@FERC @OversightDems @YouTube The distinction here is @FERC had a 100% tolling determination and thus created actual injury to private landowners. When landowners appealed;

“In every single case, FERC eventually denied the request”
@FERC @OversightDems @YouTube Had it NOT been for this subcommittee’s investigation - resulted in @FERC June 2020 Statement;
“ it will no longer authorize construction activities for natural gas pipelines until the agency acts on the merits of challenges from private landowners and other stakeholders..” https://oversight.house.gov/news/press-releases/ferc-rules-i

IF true I can not think of anyone more qualified than @LindaT_G and it would have an almost immediate effect to calm the weary nerves of our Allies.
her resume and previous @StateDept stints are truly amazing.

Or @realDonaldTrump (arguably improper) designation of “meat packing plants” were ”critical to the Nation’s infrastructure“?
Or @SecGeneScalia messed up OSHA guidelines re CDC guidelines would result in deaths

ICYMI @realDonaldTrump
Microsoft published an alert warning of hacking groups connected to the Russian & NKorea targeting;
COVID-19 vaccine and treatment researchers in
Canada
France
India
South Korea
America
“According to the alert, some of their attacks were successful” https://www.hsgac.senate.go...https://www.hsgac.senate.go...
For context to @GaryPeters letter to @realDonaldTrump
in late Oct & Nov CISA & DHS & FBI issued critical alerts

You get that Senator @GaryPeters Nov 20th letter is NOT in a vacuum
For Example Spring of 2020 see this mini thread
which primarily focused on China but it was a predicable alert because once Wuhan was off lockdown China ramped up cyber attacks

ICYMI (I know I did and as you know on the weekends I tend to do deep dives)
NEW GAO REPORT

BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH

NIH Should Publicly Report More Information about the Licensing of Its Intellectual Property
GAO-21-52: Published: Oct 22, 2020.
Publicly Released: Nov 20, 2020 https://www.gao.gov/assets/...https://www.gao.gov/assets/...https://www.gao.gov/assets/...https://www.gao.gov/assets/...
TRANSPARENCY IS GOOD
NIH received up to $2 billion in royalties from its contributions to 34 drugs sold from 1991-2019. But how does licensing support NIH's public health mission? What other benefits—e.g., drug affordability, or increased innovation—do taxpayers get in return?... https://www.gao.gov/assets/...https://www.gao.gov/assets/...https://www.gao.gov/assets/...https://www.gao.gov/assets/...
I think as tax payers forcing;
NIH
FDA
CDC and more broadly HHS to be far more transparent is a good thing
WHY? Well every year as tax payers we fund a lot of R & D for big Pharma who in turn develop RXs and then make massive profits on the RXs. This has been a sticking point https://www.gao.gov/assets/...https://www.gao.gov/assets/...https://www.gao.gov/assets/...https://www.gao.gov/assets/...
