A special counsel and several congressional committees, including the Senate Intelligence panel, are investigating Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

Manafort's finances and real estate transactions are also under scrutiny by the New York state attorney general and the Manhattan district attorney in a separate investigation. 

Kushner met with members of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Monday in connection with the June 2016 meeting.

In prepared remarks ahead of that meeting and in a public statement afterward, Kushner denied that he, or anyone on the campaign that he knew of, colluded with Moscow to influence the outcome of the election.
