In an opening statement during a hearing of the select committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, Cheney, the panel’s vice chairwoman, said that despite widely circulated reports of how mail-in ballots would be tallied, Trump took Giuliani’s advice to shift other staffers’ election night plans.

“You will also hear testimony that President Trump rejected the advice of his campaign experts on election night and instead followed the course recommended by an apparently inebriated Rudy Giuliani to just claim he won and insisted that the vote-counting stop to falsely claim everything was fraudulent,” Cheney said.

Cheney said Trump “falsely told the American people that the election was ‘not legitimate,’ in his words, quote, ‘a major fraud.’ Millions of Americans believed him.”

Jason Miller, who was an aide to Trump, acknowledged in recorded testimony played by the committee at the hearing that Giuliani was intoxicated on election night. Giuliani said in recorded testimony he spoke with the president several times on election night.
