CNBC: Firm owned by Trump’s longtime bodyguard Keith Schiller has received $225,000 from Republican National Committee

A company owned by Keith Schiller, President Donald Trump’s former longtime bodyguard, has received $225,000 from the Republican National Committee for security consulting since he left his job as White House director of Oval Office operations in September 2017, according to interviews and newly released campaign filings.

 

Schiller was originally hired by the RNC to help select a site for the 2020 convention. But once the city of Charlotte, North Carolina, was announced in July, Schiller’s firm was kept on to “work on other security needs for the committee,” a party official told CNBC, speaking on the condition of anonymity in order to share information that was not included in campaign filings.

 

The official declined to go into detail about what the committee’s security needs might be but confirmed that the work is ongoing.
