A new book claims that election fraud fighting lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis were questioned for their support of President Donald Trump’s fight against credible evidence of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election, prompting Giuliani to threaten the career of Republican National Committee (RNC) chief counsel Justin Riemer.
The new book by author Michael Wolff claims that Giuliani and Ellis received an email questioning why they were supporting President Trump’s efforts to expose what many consider clear and obvious fraud in the 2020 election, and questioned whether fraud occurred at all.
Giuliani apparently became incensed, asking those helping President Trump, “Can you f**king believe this?” He added, “They’re backdooring us … doing everything in their power to help us.” The email was described as being “akin to saying ‘f**k Trump’ and ‘f**k Giuliani.'”
Later, Giuliani – who is rumored to have began drinking heavily during his fight to expose election fraud – reportedly called Reimer while in a restaurant “in full battle mode (and with a few drinks in him).” On the call, Giuliani shouted at Reimer: “Who the f**k do you think you are? How can you be going against the President? … You need to resign and resign tonight … because you are going to be fired.”
Giuliani then apparently called RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel, the niece of never-Trump Sen. Mitt Romney, and demanded Reimer be fired. However, as Business Insider notes, “Reimer continues to serve as the chief counsel at the RNC” and an RNC spokesperson denied Wolff’s reporting to the news outlet.
However, on social media, Ellis says the account is completely factual. “The report is true @GOPChairwoman, and you know I have the receipts.” Ellis continued, “Why is the RNC lying and saying it’s false?”

McDaniel has been branded by many pro-Trump pundits as a tool of the Republican Party establishment, with many honing in on her familial relation to Romney. Lauren Witzke, the former Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Delaware, who now works as a pundit for Tru News, has branded McDaniel “Ronna Romney McDaniel” for her apparent lack of interest in securing U.S. elections, often using her influential Telegram channel.
