Kushner: ‘I Did Not Collude’ With Russia

In an 11-page statement released early Monday, Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, declared “I did not collude, nor know of anyone else in the campaign who colluded, with any foreign government.” Kushner’s statement will be delivered during a closed-door meeting with congressional investigators this week. Kushner also said that his June 2016 meeting with Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was such a “waste of time” that he had an assistant pull him out of it. “No part of the meeting I attended included anything about the campaign, there was no follow up to the meeting that I am aware of, I do not recall how many people were there (or their names), and I have no knowledge of any documents being offered or accepted,” he wrote.
