President Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner will appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee in a closed hearing on Monday, ABC News reported. 

“As Mr. Kushner has been saying since March, he has been and is prepared to voluntarily cooperate and provide whatever information he has on the investigations to Congress," Kushner's lawyer Abbe Lowell told ABC News.

"Working with and being responsive to the schedules of the committees, we have arranged Mr. Kushner's interview with the Senate for July 24. He will continue to cooperate and appreciates the opportunity to assist in putting this matter to rest.”
