A group of House Republicans are demanding the names of the anti-Trump employees mentioned in the damaging IG report.
The group has requested Horowitz supply them with the names of the FBI employees "in the interest of justice and transparency." The Republicans argue that the individuals need to be held accountable. It is unknown if Horowitz will supply the names.

"As representatives of the American people, Congress deserves to know exactly who contributed to the abuse of power at the Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI," the letter reads. "These individuals need to be held accountable and only transparency will ensure that action."
The letter is signed by Reps. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz.; Dave Brat, R-Va.; Scott DesJarlais, R-Tenn.; Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Paul Gosar, R-Ariz.; Jody Hice, R-Ga., Jim Jordan, R-Ohio; and Ralph Norman, R-S.C.
Horowitz's report, released on Thursday, concluded that there was no evidence that investigators' political beliefs played a role in the decision not to prosecute Clinton for mishandling classified information in 2016. However, the report also revealed new anti-Trump messages between top FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page -- including a missive from Strzok in August 2016 saying "we'll stop" Trump from becoming president.
The letter specifically mentions "FBI Attorney 2" who had texted the message "viva le resistance" to a colleague. The letter also requested information on FBI employees who had accepted gifts from reporters, due to the possibility that they were accepting these gifts for the exchange of leaked information.
Do you think Horowitz should give them the names? Let us know in the comments.
