Kushner Issues Statement Denying Collusion With Russia During 2016 Election
President Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor, Jared Kushner, has released a statement denying any collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
It comes as Kushner prepares to face tough questions on Capitol Hill Monday as part of the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling.
The statement, released Monday morning, details four contacts he had with Russians during the election.
None of which he says were improper.
He will meet with Senators Monday for a closed-door session regarding his interactions with the Russian government.
Kushner will face another round of questions by a House panel Tuesday.
His meeting with a Russian lawyer last year will be among the talking points.
The lawyer reportedly had damaging information on Hillary Clinton.
