Trump’s longtime bodyguard testified that Russia offered women to Trump while he was in Moscow
President Donald Trump’s former bodyguard and confidante, Keith Schiller, privately testified under oath that he rejected an offer from a Russian to “send five women” to Trump’s Moscow hotel room in 2013, according to reports from NBC News and CNN.
Schiller said that he rejected the offer, telling the Russian, “We don’t do that type of stuff.”
Schiller reportedly testified that he talked to Trump about the offer as the two walked back to Trump’s hotel room. The two men laughed about it before Trump went to bed. Schiller said he stood outside Trump’s hotel room for a while before leaving, as was his routine as the billionaire businessman’s security guard. Schiller said he does not know what happened for the rest of the night.
According to sources with direct knowledge of Schiller’s four-hour long testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, the former director of Oval Office operations adamantly rejected many of the allegations made in a collection of explosive memos written by Christopher Steele, a veteran British spy, alleging ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Schiller’s lawyer, Stuart Sears, said in a statement that “the versions of Mr. Schiller’s testimony being leaked to the press are blatantly false and misleading” and condemned the House Committee for leaking.
“We are appalled by the leaks that are coming from partisan insiders from the House Intelligence Committee,” Sears said. “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.”
The Steele dossier, made public in January by Buzzfeed News, contains allegations that Trump declined various business deals in Russia but that the Russian government fed Trump intel throughout the 2016 presidential election.
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.
Trump has forcefully rejected these allegations.
“Does anyone really believe that story?” he said during a press conference in January. “I’m also very much of a germaphobe, by the way.”
Multiple intel agencies claim to have Trump sex videos — but some fakes are floating around: Ex-NSA analyst
John Schindler, a former National Security Agency analyst who now regularly writes about alleged ties between President Donald Trump and the Russian government, has written an explosive column this week alleging that multiple intelligence agencies around the world claim to have copies of Trump sex tapes.
In his latest column at the Observer, Schindler writes that Trump’s notorious sexual habits over the years have left him wide open to potential blackmail, and that intelligence agencies around the world possess what they believe to be compromising material on him.
“As many as a dozen intelligence services worldwide, on four continents, are in possession of some sort of ‘Trump tape’ featuring sexual escapades of a controversial nature,” he writes. “Some of these tapes have been shared with the Mueller investigation.”
However, Schindler also warns that many of these tapes are either crude or sophisticated forgeries seemingly designed to discredit any news organization or politician who brings them to light. Schindler suspects that these fraudulent tapes are the work of Russian counterintelligence operatives and were created to protect Trump in case real sex videos of the president were to leak.
That said, Schindler is confident that at least one genuine Trump sex tape exists.
“One Western intelligence agency with a solid professional reputation is in possession of an unpleasant Trump tape that they assess ‘with high confidence’ is bona fide, i.e. exactly what it appears to be,” he writes. “They obtained the tape from a trusted source who plausibly had access to it. Over the decades, Trump has traveled widely—including to Russia more than once—and thereby exposed himself to surreptitious filming in numerous countries.”
Schindler was highly skeptical of the Steele dossier’s claim that Russia had genuine video footage of Trump watching a prostitute performing a “golden shower” when the contents of the dossier were first made public.
“The dossier’s “pee-pee tape” claim is viewed with derision by most Western spies who know the Russians,” he wrote earlier this year.
