Russians Offered to Send Women to Trump's Moscow Hotel Room, Bodyguard Testifies

Bodyguard Testifies That Trump Was Offered 'Five Women' by Russia 'Miss Universe' Participant
President Donald Trump's long-time confidant Keith Schiller privately testified that he rejected a Russianoffer to send five women to then private-citizen Trump's hotel room during their 2013 trip to Moscow for the Miss Universe pageant, according to multiple sources from both political parties with direct knowledge of the testimony.
Schiller, who was named head of security for the Trump Organization in 2004, immediately told the man making the offer, "We don't do that type of stuff". That, of course, refers to the reported "golden showers" incident, which was only one portion of the voluminous Steele dossier that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been able to partially corroborate. He later discussed the offer with Trump as they were walking toward his hotel room, and recalled that Trump also appeared to take it as a joke.
"I was in Russian Federation years ago with the Miss Universe contest which did very well", Trump said.
He testified that he eventually left the room and could not for sure say what happened, but sources told NBC he was "confident nothing happened".
Schiller's lawyer denied leaked accounts of his client's testimony, calling them "blatantly false and misleading".

At issue: the controversial dossier compiled by ex-British spook Christopher Steele, which makes salacious allegations involving Trump, a hotel room in Moscow, several prostitutes, and a video tape. He told Trump about the offer and the two laughed it off, CNN reports.
"We are appalled by the leaks that are coming from partisan insiders from the House Intelligence Committee", said lawyer Stuart Sears.
Trump's bodyguard Keith Schiller has been by the side of the real estate tycoon and president through thick-and-thin.
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. 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.
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.
