Holding that venue for petition for review was proper in the Fourth Circuit because the IJ was physically located in Virginia during the removal proceedings. The Court upheld the agency's denial of asylum and withholding of removal because the IJ's adverse credibility determination and conclusions with regard to the plausibility of Petitioner's assertions were supported by substantial evidence. The Court further determined for CAT relief that Petitioner failed to show that he'd more likely than not be tortured.
