President Donald Trump’s bodyguard just poked another hole in one of the Steele dossier’s claims.
Earlier this week, Keith Schiller testified before the House Intelligence Committee. According to NBC News, Keith Schiller stated that after a meeting at the 2013 Miss Universe Pageant, a Russian participant offered to “send five women” to Trump’s hotel room.
According to two of NBC News’ sources, Schiller believed the offer was a joke and said, “We don’t do that type of stuff.”
The bodyguard made the comments while disputing the sordid allegations Christopher Steele, a former MI6 agent, made in his dossier on the president. In the document, Steele alleges that Trump spent an evening with Russian prostitutes at the hotel during the pageant.
Schiller states that Trump did not have an encounter with prostitutes while in Moscow. NBC News reports:
“That night, two sources said, Schiller said he discussed the conversation with Trump as Trump was walking back to his hotel room, and Schiller said the two men laughed about it as Trump went to bed alone. Schiller testified that he stood outside Trump’s hotel room for a time and then went to bed.”
Although Schiller’s testimony focused mainly on the Moscow trip, the House Intelligence Committee also questioned the bodyguard about the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natasha Veselnitskaya. He stated that he “did not recall much about that day.”
The Steele Dossier, which was paid for by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign, made a host of allegations against President Trump. Some of the assertions in the document were verified while many others were debunked. However, nothing in the dossier gave the left what they really wanted: evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
Out of all the statements made in the document, the supposed encounter with Russian prostitutes was the most lurid — it was clearly designed to smear the president. It was also one of the allegations that were proven false.
Schiller’s testimony is yet another indicator that Steele’s Russian sources were attempting to meddle in the United States’ election by providing false information about then-candidate Donald Trump.
While many believe that the Russians wanted Trump to win, the fact that they provided damaging information to another party shows that the situation isn’t as quite as clear-cut as the left would like us to believe.
