A former bodyguard for Donald Trump testified before Congress this week and blew a hole in one of the most infamous claims of the Democrat-funded Trump-Russia dossier.
Keith Schiller told Congress that in 2013, a Russian participant offered to “send five women” to Donald Trump’s hotel room in Moscow after a business meeting on the upcoming Miss Universe Pageant, NBC News reported.
Multiple sources told NBC News that Schiller viewed the offer as a joke and immediately told the Russian, “We don’t do that type of stuff.”
Schiller’s comments were reportedly about an outrageous allegation made in the Trump-Russia dossier which claimed that Trump had an encounter with prostitutes in Russia where he had them urinate on the bed where former President Barack Obama previously stayed.
“Schiller described his reaction to that story as being, ‘Oh my God, that’s bull—-,’ two sources said,” according to NBC News.
That night, two sources said, Schiller said he discussed the conversation with Trump as Trump was walking back to his hotel room, and Schiller said the two men laughed about it as Trump went to bed alone. Schiller testified that he stood outside Trump’s hotel room for a time and then went to bed.
One source noted that Schiller testified he eventually left Trump’s hotel room door and could not say for sure what happened during the remainder of the night.
In the four-hour testimony, Schiller said that he and Trump were well aware of the risk that hotel rooms in Russia could be under secret surveillance by Russian intelligence agencies.
Schiller is a Navy veteran who started working for Trump as a part-time bodyguard while serving as an NYPD officer. After retiring from the NYPD, Schiller began working full-time for Trump in 2002 and became his director of security in 2004. Schiller also served as director of Oval Office operations during the first nine months of the Trump administration.
The dossier that the allegations appeared in was funded by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in 2016.
