Former congressional page Jordan Edmund was interviewed by FBI agents for about two and-a-half hours today, his attorney told reporters.

"Jordan answered all of their questions, relying upon his memory as it exists," attorney Stephen Jones said.

The FBI is investigating former U.S. Rep. Mark Foley, who resigned Sept. 29.

Edmund, 21, arrived at the U.S. Attorney's office in downtown Oklahoma City about 10 a.m. He left around 12:40 p.m.

Edmund did not talk to reporters. His expression was somber. He wore a dark pinstriped suit and red tie. Edmund brought with him to the interview a large envelope.

Jones also told reporters he was contacted this morning by the House Ethics Committee. He said, " I will speak to them this afternoon."

Foley, a Florida Republican, quit after ABC News confronted him about lurid messages sent over the Internet to teenage, former male pages.

Foley, 52, has admitted through an attorney that he sent inappropriate online messages. Edmund, a Californian, was identified last week by a blogger as one of the former pages who allegedly got online instant messages from Foley. In one alleged message to Edmund, Foley wrote "strip down and get relaxed.
