During a trip to Moscow with several colleagues in 2013, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) reportedly asked around for help with finding a "Chinese masseuse" to join him in his hotel room.
Buzzfeed first reported the story in 2015, but it was resurrected after the Steele dossier alleged President Donald Trump had a risque rendezvous in the same hotel during his one trip to Moscow in 2013.
According to a report published by BuzzFeed News in 2015, King stayed at the same hotel during a 2013 trip with Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) and five other members of Congress. King allegedly tried to arrange for a “Chinese masseuse” to be sent to his room while he was staying in Moscow.
“One official with connections in Chinese circles was even asked to make inquiries about how to procure one, but declined,” BuzzFeed reported. The website cited two anonymous U.S. officials as sources.
