On Friday morning, former New York City mayor and current Donald Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani implied he knew about new emails tied to the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private server before they were released.

By Friday night, Giuliani had started denying this statement, saying he had only heard from "former FBI agents," not active ones.

Here's the Fox interview where Giuliani discussed the emails early Friday.

He also said on CNN that he "misspoke" in the Friday morning interview.

Democratic Reps. Elijah Cummings and John Conyers, ranking members of the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees, respectively, sent a letter to Inspector General Michael Horowitz investigating the possibility that the FBI leaked information about the emails.

"Rudy Giuliani ... confirmed that he had obtained leaked information about the FBI's review of Clinton-related emails several days before FBI Director James Comey sent his letter to Congress last Friday about the matter," the letter begins (including those italics).

On October 26, Giuliani told Fox News' Martha MacCallum the Trump campaign had "some pretty big surprises...that should turn this around." He later said he was talking about an ad campaign, USA Today reports.

He also said the "heard about it" comment referred to The New York Times' and Wall Street Journal's reporting, not internal conversation.

Are FBI agents leaking information to a political party in this election cycle?
