Giuliani used a tunnel under Mar-a-Lago to go back and forth from Trump's home, where he stayed while he was depressed and drinking heavily, book says

After losing the 2008 GOP presidential nod, Giuliani moved to Trump's Mar-a-Lago club, a book says. A tunnel under the Palm Beach, Florida, estate let Giuliani travel back and

forth unseen, it adds. His ex-wife says he began drinking heavily and had "clinical depression" after leaving the race. Rudy Giuliani at one time secretly stayed at Donald

Trump's Mar-a-Lago club, where he used an underground tunnel to go back and forth from the resort while he was depressed and drinking a lot after falling short in the 2008

Republican presidential primaries, a forthcoming book says. In the book, "Giuliani: The Rise and Tragic Fall of America's Mayor," Andrew Kirtzman describes Giuliani's

personal struggles after he left the GOP contest following a dismal showing in the Florida primary. The book features commentary from his third ex-wife, Judith

Giuliani. Giuliani "dreamed of becoming president from a young age, [but] blew his big moment when it arrived," Kirtzman wrote, according to an early copy of the book

obtained by The Guardian. Judith Giuliani told Kirtzman that her then-husband fell into "a clinical depression," which she said she knew about because of her background as a

nurse. In the book, she describes her ex-husband's excessive drinking as a way to "dull the pain," according to The Guardian report. Rudy Giuliani has repeatedly

denied he has a drinking issue. During the difficult time, Trump allowed the Giulianis to stay in a bungalow across the street from Mar-a-Lago that was accessed via an

underground tunnel beneath South Ocean Boulevard so they could avoid the media glare.
