Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein accused Rep. Jim Jordan of attacking him "personally" Thursday in a heated clash at a House Judiciary Committee hearing. 

GOP lawmakers quizzed Rosenstein on allegations of bias by FBI investigators in the Hillary Clinton and Trump-Russia investigations, pressing for answers on why DOJ has not turned over documents related to an informant in the Trump campaign. 

"We have caught you hiding information," Jordan told Rosenstein, who appeared angered as he sat alongside FBI Director Christopher Wray.

Rosenstein denied he has been keeping any information from Congress, as Democrats accused Jordan of not letting Rosenstein answer the questions. 

"I've heard you make those allegations publicly on TV," Rosenstein answered, adding he is not the one responsible for what redactions are made on documents handed over lawmakers.

He said he has consistently responded to lawmakers' concerns about the document production.  

Rosenstein, who oversees Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe, accused Jordan of using the issue to launch personal attacks.

"It's not personal. We just want the information," said Jordan, accusing Rosenstein of telling FBI agent Peter Strzok not to answer questions at a closed-door hearing on Wednesday. 

Rosenstein denied the accusation.

"You should believe me because I'm telling the truth and I'm under oath," Rosenstein said, pointing his finger at the Ohio Republican.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) said Wednesday Rosenstein could face "contempt and impeachment" if the documents are not produced by July 6.

"You have seven days to get your act together," Jordan said at one point. 

Rosenstein said many "career officials" and Trump appointees are working to produce the documents and nothing is being hidden.
