On Monday, Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, had a closed door meeting in the Senate Intelligence Committee. Kushner later spoke to the public where he said he “did not collude with Russia.”
“Let me be very clear. I did not collude with Russia, nor do I know of anyone else in the campaign who did so,” he said. “I had no improper contacts. I have not relied on Russian funds for my businesses. And I have been fully transparent in providing all requested information.”
Kushner then went on to say that Trump won because the people voted for him and that Russia had nothing to do with the election.
“That is why he won, suggesting otherwise ridicules those who voted for him.”
Kushner released an 11-page statement insisting he did not collude with Russian operatives during the 2016 presidential campaign before his meeting with the Senate.
