Note: this question has been asked before here for uniformly distributed variables, but the link in the answer is broken. It was also asked here, but the answer given was for uniformly distributed random variables.

@DanielCooney Sorry, that was a vestigal part from when I had originally tried to use a finite subcover. But then I realized I didn't need it for this argument to work. I repaired it above.
