‘The Mayor Was Definitely Intoxicated’: Trump Officials Describe Giuliani on Election Night

Rudy Giuliani, the former attorney of President Trump, was described by campaign officials as clearly “intoxicated” on election night in November 2020, according to recorded depositions played at the January 6th Committee on Monday. Trump Campaign Manager Bill Stepien and Senior Adviser Jason Miller both described the former New York City mayor’s presence at the White House on the evening of November 3, where staff remained past midnight. Giuliani, who also spoke to committee investigators, said that he spoke with Trump “several times that night.” When prompted by investigators, Miller said that Giuliani appeared to have had too much to drink. “The mayor was definitely intoxicated, but I do not know his level of intoxication when he spoke with the president, for example,” said Miller. “There were suggestions by I believe it was Mayor Giuliani to go and declare victory and say that we’d won it outright.” Credit: January 6th Committee via Storyful
