Kushner to testify at closed Senate Intel Committee hearing: report
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.”
Kushner has emerged as a person of interest in ongoing investigations into Russia’s role in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
He has faced scrutiny over his previously undisclosed meetings with Russian nationals and officials, including a meeting with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and the CEO of a Russian state-run bank during the presidential transition.
More recently, it was revealed that the senior adviser attended a meeting last summer with a Russian lawyer who had reportedly promised compromising information to the Trump campaign about Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
The Senate Intelligence Committee has said since March that it wanted to interview Kushner.
