Senior White House adviser Jared Kushner on Monday released details of his meetings with the Russians since his father-in-law President Donald Trump decided to run for president, the Gateway Pundit reports.
In his prepared statement to the Senate Intelligence Committee, he also detailed his meeting with the Russian lawyer who claimed to have damaging information on Trump’s rival Hillary Clinton.
He said he was so uninterested in that discussion that he asked his assistant for her help escaping.
Kushner, who will testify to congressional investigators on Monday, said he was asked by his brother-in-law Donald J. Trump Jr. to attend that meeting but said he did not read an email sent by Trump Jr. saying that the Russian lawyer was providing dirt on Clinton.
His testimony marks the first time he will publicly explain his contacts with Kremlin-linked people since joining the Trump White House.
“I had no improper contacts. I did not collude, nor know of anyone else in the campaign who colluded, with any foreign government,” Kushner said in his statement released by his representatives Monday.
