Trump bodyguard reportedly testifies Russian official offered Trump women in Moscow

10 November 2017

In a statement for NBC News, Schiller's lawyer criticized the House Intelligence Committee "for leaking false and misleading versions of Mr. Schiller's testimony".

After a meeting before the Miss Universe Pageant in 2013, a Russian participant offered to "send five women" to Trump's hotel room in Moscow, bodyguard Keith Schiller told Congress this week, NBC News reports, citing three sources who were present for the interview. Two other sources said Schiller maintained confidence that nothing had happened after he left.

Trump in July commented to The New York Times that he was confident Schiller would dismiss the allegations made in the dossier about his 2013 trip to Moscow, telling the paper of Schiller's reaction to the claims: "He said, 'What kind of crap is this?' I went there for one day for the Miss Universe contest, I turned around, I went back".

It also includes claims that Russian spies concealed cameras in Trump's Moscow hotel room that filmed him with prostitutes who urinated on a bed he believed former President Barack Obama had slept in.

Schiller recounted that later that night, he and Trump laughed about the offer, but then Trump went to bed alone.

He told the House Intelligence Committee that the offer of five women to Trump took place after a business meeting about the pageant ended.

During the testimony with the House investigators, Schiller denied knowing about the salacious allegations contained in the dossier.

Schiller's testimony is just one of many as the investigation into Russian involvement in Trump's campaign and the 2016 election generally continues.

Schiller said he viewed the offer as a joke, and responded that they "don't do that type of stuff". At a press conference weeks before taking office, Trump said that he tells his staff before overseas trips, including to Russian Federation, to "be very careful" in their hotel rooms because "you're gonna probably have cameras", and that they could end up on the news if they weren't cautious.
