President Trump’s longtime bodyguard and confidant, Keith Schiller, will be questioned by the House Intelligence Committee next week as part of the panel’s probe into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.
Schiller joined Trump on his 2013 trip to Moscow for the Miss Universe Pageant.
The Washington Post reported Friday that the committee will question Schiller on Tuesday about allegations in the infamous “Trump dossier.”
“He can expect to be asked about any interaction with Russians, with or without Trump” during the 2013 trip and while employed by the Trump Organization, a U.S. official told the news organization.
The 35-page dossier, which contains salacious and unverified claims about the president during that trip, was compiled by a former British spy who worked for a firm hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
Trump has called the allegations “totally fake and made up.”
The committee also plans to question Schiller about the the firing of former FBI Director James Comey. Schiller delivered Trump’s letter notifying Comey of his termination to the FBI.
Schiller served as the director of security at Trump Organization since 2005. He joined Trump in the White House in January as director of Oval Operations. He resigned in September after John Kelly was brought in as chief of staff.
