Mueller's team ‐ 19 lawyers, 40+ agents/analysts - would have known of the altered document.

[Protect the institutions.]

It took IG Horowitz to do something about it.
In fact - considering how FBI agents were assigned once the Special Counsel was appointed - there's a real possibility that this "FBI Official" was part of Mueller's team.
CNN updates its story: it's a former FBI line attorney.

Recall the testimony of FBI lawyer Sally Moyer - she reviewed the @carterwpage FISA app "in support of the line attorney"
@carterwpage Moyer:

The FBI line attorney did not believe it was a close call.

The FBI line attorney believed there was probable cause to support the Page FISA app.

May also have worked on the Hillary Mid Year Exam investigation.
@carterwpage Consider the IG's recent findings on Confidential Human Sources

Then consider the Carter Page FISA Woods File, which would contain info to verify witness credibility
@carterwpage The question: FBI line attorney have any involvement with the Woods File?

Moyer: The investigative documents are in the file... "we just move them to the Woods file to support every fact."

While FBI agents handle Woods files, FBI lawyers sometimes assist

@carterwpage @JohnWHuber If you want to find out who the mystery Line Attorney is, it might be good to start with former attorneys from the FBI National Security & Cyber Law Branch (NSCLB)
@carterwpage @JohnWHuber Per WaPo:

The employee "altered an email" to back up a claim made to the DOJ "about the factual basis for the application"

But didn't alter "Horowitz’s finding that the surveillance application . . . had a proper legal and factual basis" 🤔
