After a business meeting in preparation for the 2013 Miss Universe Pageant in Moscow, a Russian who attended the meeting told Donald Trump's personal bodyguard Keith Schiller he could "send five women" to Trump's hotel room, according to an NBC report on the congressional testimony Schiller gave behind closed doors Wednesday.
Schiller said he viewed the offer as a joke, and responded that they "don't do that type of stuff".
Appearing before the House Intelligence Committee, Schiller, numerous sources told NBC on Thursday, described a 2013 incident that made such a scenario if not likely, then at least plausible. The dossier's most eye-catching claim is that Russian officials have a video of Trump in an upscale Moscow hotel room watching prostitutes urinate on a bed that Barack and Michelle Obama once slept in. Multiple sources told NBC Schiller was confident that no one sent Trump any women that evening, and that he and Trump were aware of the possibility of wiretapping or hidden cameras in the hotel room.
The dossier was created by ex-British spy Christopher Steele, who was hired by Fusion GPS after the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Convention paid the firm to conduct opposition research on Trump and his ties to Russian Federation. He discussed the conversation with Trump while walking him to his hotel room that night and they both laughed about it before Trump went to bed alone, two of the sources also said.
Schiller reacted to those allegations by stating, "Oh my god, that's bullshit", two sources said.
News said that Schiller made the remarks in his testimony to Congress about Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion between that country's government and the Trump 2016 campaign.
"We are appalled by the leaks that are coming from partisan insiders from the House Intelligence Committee", he said.
Stuart Sears, Schiller's lawyer, said versions of his client's leaked testimony "are blatantly false and misleading".
"It is outrageous that the very Committee that is conducting an investigation into leaks-purportedly in the public interest-is itself leaking information and defaming cooperative witnesses like Mr. Schiller", he added.
