Jim Jordan: 'Who Is Attorney #2?' in DOJ Report

Rep. Jim Jordan on Thursday called on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to identify a mystery "Attorney #2" noted as "stressed about what I could have done differently" in the scathing report released by the Justice Department Inspector General.

In an earlier post, Jordan noted: "The day after the election, FBI Attorney #2 said he was 'stressed about what I could have done differently.' 2 weeks later he said, 'Viva le resistance.'"

"This is as wrong as it gets," the six-term congressman said.

In his 500-page report, Inspector General Michael Horowitz cited text messages by FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page as examples of bias against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump by five agency staffers as it investigated Hillary Clinton's private email use.

Horowitz said the five had been referred to FBI officials for possible disciplinary action.

In one Strzok-Page text exchange cited in the report, Page asked on Aug. 8, 2016 whether Trump would become president.

Strzok replied: "No. No he's not. We’ll stop it."

Under those circumstances, Horowitz concluded, "we did not have confidence that Strzok's decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up" on new evidence in the Clinton case "was free from bias."
