Trump’s bodyguard Keith Schiller has been by the side of the real estate tycoon and president through thick-and-thin.
So, it’s only natural that the dragnet of real and imagined Russian conspiracy – one that has taken the ironic turn of ensnaring the Democrats – has expanded to include Trump’s bodyguard.
Enter Keith Schiller: A private security director for Donald Trump who was subsequently named as the deputy assistant to the president and director of Oval Office operations.
Schiller testified for four hours before the House Intelligence Committee about a Moscow trip that Donald Trump took for the Miss Universe Pageant in 2013. One of the revelations, in addition to Democrats learning that the head of a major corporation might have business in Russia, is Schiller’s retelling of an incident that directly relates to unsubstantiated accusations made in the “Trump dossier.”
That would be the same Trump dossier that contained seedy incidents that amount to kompromizat, i.e. blackmailable dirt the Kremlin could use against the future president, such as the alleged transaction with a few Russian prostitutes that involved, for lack of a respectable term, the observance of “water sports.” (And no, they don’t give gold medals out for this kind.)
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.
The Russian nesting doll of the smear campaign eventually uncovered Fusion GPS, who was associated with Russian lawyer Natalya Veselnitskaya, who in turn offered Hillary dirt up to the Trump campaign in the presence of Donnie Trump Jr. Even weirder, this is the same Fusion GPS that has connections to the DNC tech contractor Crowdstrike, which essentially did the job that the FBI should have done after the alleged DNC hack, because… Democrats.
Back to the bodyguard. Turns out he has the perfect response to the alleged hype about the Russians having salacious dirt on The Donald, at least involving wild nights with Russian prostitutki (and let’s hand it to them, it would take more than prostitutes to impress the American people about a billionaire’s rendezvous abroad, that’s why they threw in the “pissgate” bit. Bravo, gentlemen.)
When the Russians sent “five women” to have a very private meeting with Donald Trump during the Miss Universe Pageant trip, the bodyguard Schiller replied bluntly, “We don’t do that type of stuff.”
That’s according to two sources contacted by NBC News, not exactly the friendliest network to Trump around. In addition, Schiller reportedly summed up his view of the Trump dossier when the steaming pile of Democrat-funded oppo-research hit the presses.
“Oh my God, that’s bull—-,” he reportedly said.
Other stories springing from Schiller’s testimony have made their way into the press, and suffice to say, his lawyer is none-to-happy about it.
“We are appalled by the leaks that are coming from partisan insiders from the House Intelligence Committee,” said his lawyer Stuart Sears. “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 Chairman and Ranking Member should investigate and hold accountable whoever is responsible for leaking false and misleading versions of Mr. Schiller’s testimony. This conduct is indefensible and calls into question the credibility and motives of the Committee’s investigation.”
It may be a “leak” (an oddly apropos term given the nature of the subject matter), but it’s safe to say this one happens to shoot down one of the media’s favorite conspiracy theories about the already discredited Trump dossier.
