Who's playing the electric guitar?
Who's playing the fuzzy electric guitar on the Rubber Soul version of "I'm Looking Through You"?
I think it's Paul. It sounds more like his flashy, frantic style than George's slower, thoughtful style (Not saying that one is better than the other). The Anthology 2 take sounds more like George to me.

I've never seen anything beyond speculation that it isn't George. I know some have said it sounds like a McCartney solo thing and that it sounds rushed etc but, to me, that's just a bit of anti-Paul bias feeding speculation.
I will say that I can appreciate that the style may sound more Paul. Again, however, I've never seen anything beyond speculation – speculation often with an anti-Paul tinge. Not to say you do Runforyourlife, but others do.

Aren't there two different electrics audible during the fade-out? One playing the little hammer-on lick and another one playing something of a little solo?
I'll have to give it a close listening with headphones.
