According to a new book by Andrew Kurtzman, former attorney for Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani and his third wife, Judith, secretly moved into a bungalow across from the ex-President's Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago. At the time, Rudy Jailiani was drinking heavily. Although Rudy denies having a drinking problem, he's been accused of it quite often. Giuliani was suffering from depression at the time, too. Reports of Mar-a-Lago being a security nightmare just got worse.

Via The Guardian:

The former mayor and his wife, Kirtzman writes, moved into a bungalow across the street from Mar-a-Lago but connected by a tunnel underneath South Ocean Boulevard, one of many little known passages and rooms beneath the expansive resort. The secret route allowed the couple to come and go from Trump's home without the media knowing.

As Kirtzman's book nears publication, underground rooms at Mar-a-Lago are in the news, after the FBI searched some for classified material taken from the White House at the end of Trump's four years as president.

In 2019, The Independent reported:

A student gained access to Donald Trump's Florida residence while the president was staying at the property after sneaking through a tunnel leading from a nearby beach.

Mark Lindblom, who was 18 at the time, spent 20 minutes wandering around the communal areas of Mr. Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort before he was arrested.

Wealthy people used these tunnels to smuggle booze during Prohibition. Again, the entire place is a national security nightmare, and yet, that's where the one-term meathead kept our country's most sensitive documents, apparently just lying around all willy-nilly. Quick question: When is that traitor going to be perp-walked?
