Rudy Giuliani clapped back against an aide of former President Donald Trump who claimed in testimony before the House Jan. 6 committee that he was intoxicated on election night.

It’s also being asserted that the former New York mayor was part of an internal campaign team following the election that was dishonest and unprofessional. Giuliani is understandably furious over the allegations.

The remarks by former campaign manager Bill Stepien and former campaign adviser Jason Miller surfaced on Monday in a video of their depositions in front of the House select committee during the second public hearing on the Jan. 6 protest.

Miller responded to a question in the deposition asking him whether anyone on the campaign team who spoke to Trump had had too much to drink that night. He claimed that Giuliani was intoxicated.

“I am disgusted and outraged at the out right lie by Jason Miller and Bill Stepien,” Giuliani angrily stated in a now-deleted series of tweets, according to The Hill.

“I was upset that they were not prepared for the massive cheating (as well as other lawyers around the President) I REFUSED all alcohol that evening. My favorite drink..Diet Pepsi,” he wrote.

“Is the false testimony from Miller and Steppien because I yelled at them? Are they being paid to lie?” he charged in another tweet.

“Mayor Giuliani did attend the election result gathering on Nov 3, 2020 along with many guests. Per one fellow guest… Mayor was drinking diet coke all night,” The Official Giuliani Media account tweeted, before posting various questions from Giuliani to the committee.

According to The Hill, Stepien testified he was part of “team normal” for the Trump campaign, claiming they had accepted that the former president had lost the presidential election based on data they had.

“There were two groups … we call them kind of my team and Rudy’s team. I didn’t mind being characterized as being part of ‘Team Normal,'” the former campaign manager testified. He did so remotely because his wife went into labor on Monday.

“I didn’t think what was happening was necessarily honest or professional at that time,” he told the Jan. 6 inquisitors.

Miller testified that he had advised Trump not to declare victory until after all votes had been counted.

“There were suggestions by, I believe it was Mayor Giuliani, to go and declare victory and say that we’d won it outright,” Miller asserted. “I remember saying that … we should not go and declare victory until we had a better sense of the numbers.”

“I think the mayor was definitely intoxicated, but I do not know his level of intoxication when he spoke with the president, for example,” he testified.

Stepien would go on to say that he was concerned about Giuliani and attorney Sidney Powell’s statements following the 2020 presidential election, according to Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) who played the clip of his testimony.

The line of reasoning by the panel seems to entail crafting a narrative that Trump claiming he won the election and that there was election fraud somehow led to the Jan. 6 riot.

Speaking to CNN following the hearing, committee member Rep. Jamie Raskin said that he “really can’t tell the difference” between Giuliani sober or drunk. “And it doesn’t make any difference, because what he was spouting – as Attorney General Barr said and as numerous witnesses confirmed – was complete nonsense. And he was telling fairy tales about foreign leaders and deceased communists and so on. And it was just one absurdity after another.”
