Rudy Giuliani had a major meltdown after Republican National Committee chief counsel Justin Riemer sent out a note calling into question Donald Trump’s claims of election fraud.
Based on excerpts taken from Michael Wolff’s upcoming “Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency,” it’s now public knowledge that Giuliani, who was recently barred from practicing law in both New York and Washington, DC, was given the note by fellow lawyer Jenna Ellis which stunned Trump insiders and set off a torrent of cursing like a true New Yorker.
A passage in the book describes the scene: Riemer reportedly wrote to his RNC colleagues asking why they were backing Trump’s unfounded claims of election fraud, while also expressing that the organization raised more cash battling Democrats than challenging election results. Ellis, who was having dinner with Rudy Giuliani and former New York City police commissioner Bernie Kerik, passed her phone around for everyone to view the message, which reportedly left them ‘stunned.’
"Wolff said Trump’s family has “cast out, cut off” Giuliani, without specifying which family members did so,..

Wolff reports in his book, “The former Mayor, sitting in the restaurant but in full battle mode (and with a few drinks in him), got Riemer himself on the phone: ‘Who the f*ck do you you think you are? How can you be going against the president? … You need to resign and resign tonight … because you are going to get fired.” He then reportedly called RNC head Ronna McDaniel to demand that Riemer be fired.
Per Micheal Wolff’s take on Rudy Giuliani wrote TFG aide believed: "Many believed he had the beginnings of senility: focus issues, memory problems, simple logic failures. A vast disorganization of papers and files and tech malfunctions followed in his wake."

“Can you f*cking believe this,” Giuliani reportedly exclaimed. “They are backdooring us … doing everything in their power not to help us,” with Kerik adding “that the note was akin to saying ‘f*ck Trump’ and ‘f*ck Giuliani.'”
Giuliani is said to have long been asking trump to pay his legal fees but has been ignored.

Giuliani is facing possible prosecution in both Georgia and New York, while Riemer still serves as counsel to the RNC.
