President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani told Fox News Saturday he feels "very sorry" for former U.S. envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker, as he appeared to criticize the FBI and the Department of Justice over Ukraine.

The big picture: Giuliani's insistence on "Justice with Judge Jeanine" that he can't stop leaks from the White House and that he had to urge Ukraine to investigate unsubstantiated corruption allegations concerning former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter came a day after Volker resigned following the release of the whistleblower's report.

"This was given to me by a very legitimate American investigator, lawyer, who had these very serious allegations that Ukrainian officials were trying to get to the FBI. In fact, there was something wrong with the FBI and the DOJ because they weren’t listening to them for a year."
