Stuart Sears, Schiller's lawyer, said versions of his client's leaked testimony "are blatantly false and misleading".

News reported Thursday that Donald Trump's former bodyguard, Keith Schiller, told Congress that a Russian offered to "send five women" to Trump when he was visiting Moscow in 2013. Schiller claimed he viewed the offer as a joke and responded, "We don't do that type of stuff".

Though Schiller testified he stood outside Trump's room for an unspecified amount of time before also going to bed, one of the sources noted Schiller "could not say for sure what happened during the remainder of the night", according to NBC.

Members of the committee raised the matter because of salacious allegations laid out in a dossier compiled by former British agent Christopher Steele, an opposition research document funded by Democrats detailing alleged ties between Trump and his associates with Russians.

The dossier's claims about Trump's activities in Moscow are some of the most incendiary claims in the memos compiled by Steele, which claimed that Russian Federation obtained "kompromat", or dirt, on Trump to use as blackmail.

Among the claims was that during his Moscow trip, Trump employed prostitutes to urinate on a hotel room bed once slept in by President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama.

He told the House Intelligence Committee that the offer of five women to Trump took place after a business meeting about the pageant ended.

Schiller reportedly testified that he talked to Trump about the offer as the two walked back to Trump's hotel room.

When asked about the offer, Schiller said that he could not recall who it was that made it.

Schiller, who followed Trump to the White House as director of Oval Office operations, said both he and Trump were aware of the risk of hidden cameras in Moscow hotel rooms. Schiller testified for four hours in front of the House Intelligence Committee this week and reportedly answered questions not only about Trump's visit to Russia in 2013 but also the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.
