After a closed session with senators Monday, Jared Kushner, White House senior advisor and President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, said that he did not conspire with improper Russian contacts during the 2016 presidential election.
“Let me be very clear,” Kushner said during a news conference. “I did not collude with Russia.”
Kushner also said he does not “know of anyone else in the campaign who did so.”
Kushner added that he did not rely on Russian funds for any personal business ventures.
“Serving the president and the people of the United States has been the honor and privilege of a lifetime,” Kushner said. “Donald Trump had a better message and ran a smarter campaign and that is why he won. Suggesting otherwise ridicules those who voted for him.”
