DONALD Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani was regularly “s***-faced” when coordinating the former President’s attempt to overturn the election results, according to former Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne.
The 58-year-old entrepreneur claimed Guiliani downed THREE triple Scotches before he infamously appeared to sweat hair dye down his face at a press conference for the Republican National Committee.
He posted the scandalous claims on his Deep Capture blog titled ‘How DJT Lost the White House: All the President’s Teams’.
Byrne revealed how he received a call from the former Mayor of New York City to share his findings on supposed voter fraud – hours before the notorious press conference.
Byrne had curated a “distillate” of information on voter fraud and wanted to provide the data to Trump’s counsel.
“Later, people in that room told me what happened when my paper arrived. First, in the 90 minutes between 11:30 PM and 1 AM, Mayor Giuliani imbibed three triple Scotches on ice. Those relating this story could not vouch for what he had drunk before 11:30,” he wrote.
It seems the cocktails may have gave Guiliani some dutch courage, as originally he “had not even wanted to do that much.”
“He had wanted to make three more-or-less token challenges in three states, then call it a day,” Byrne said.
Byrne blasted the lack of drive from Trump’s legal team in the blog post, claiming they had “no agenda, no format, and no apparent sense of urgency.”
He attributed Guiliani’s hair dye hysteria to him “working himself up like a grandpa” as well as the fact, “nine hours earlier, he had had nine shots of whiskey in under 90 minutes.”
Byrne credits the information of Giuliani’s alleged drinking habits to “colleagues” who interacted with him over the “afternoons and evenings, and weekends,” of the following month and a half.
“Nearly all mentioned two things: the inordinate amount of attention he was paying to his daily podcast, and his drinking.
“His own staffers were bringing it up to us. Something was clear to all who were around him: almost every evening, and many early afternoons, Rudy was s***-faced.
“That, and his podcasts, were the only guarantees in Rudy’s life,” he wrote.

The US Sun Online contacted Guiliani’s representatives for a comment but have not received a response.
It is not the first time Guiliani’s drinking habits have been called into question, as Trump’s disbarred ex-attorney Michael Cohen claimed last year that “he is drunk all the time”.
He told MNSBC it was, “a big problem and that’s what makes him susceptible because his faculties are gone. He behaves crazy.”
