Russian offered to send prostitutes to Trump's hotel room

Keith Schiller Donald Trump Bodyguard Testifies That Trump Was Offered 'Five Women' by Russia 'Miss Universe' Participant

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.

"We don't do that type of stuff", Schiller said, according to NBC. He rejected the claims in the dossier as "bullshit".

Schiller said he rejected the offer and laughed about it with Trump.

That night, Schiller said, he discussed the conversation with Trump as the future president was making his way back to his hotel room, and they both laughed about it before Trump went to bed - alone.

Trump has also denied those allegations himself, saying he knew there could be cameras hidden inside hotel rooms in Russian Federation.

Sources say Schiller told Congress he believed the offer was a joke, and that he responded to the offer by saying Trump was "not interested".

When Donald Trump left NY to take up residency in the White House, Keith Schiller, his longtime bodyguard, went with him.

In a statement to NBC News, Schiller's lawyer called the leaked information regarding his testimony "blatantly false and misleading".

Buzzfeed burst open the dam during the election by publishing the skeezy Trump dossier (because, hey, they also publish huge cat gifs posts, so why not?), which was conducted by former British spook Christopher Steele at the behest of Trump-oppo firms like The Washington Free Beacon (of all places), CNN, as well as the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

In a four hour-plus meeting with congressional investigators Tuesday, Schiller was questioned about the 2013 Moscow trip with Trump and the president's firing of former FBI Director James Comey.

Schiller, a Navy veteran and former NYPD officer, was a long-time Trump employee and was the director of Oval Office operations at the White House under Trump until September, when he quit.

According to NBC News, Schiller made his alleged comments about the offer of "five women" during testimony to the House Intelligence Committee, and he did so while "adamantly" disputing the accuracy of the Steele dossier.
