The day has come for Jared Kushner to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee about a June 2016 meeting held at Trump Towers. In addition to Kushner, Russian lawyer Natalia V. Veselnitskaya, Donald Trump Jr., and Paul Manafort were present. This meeting was allegedly conducted to provide damning information about Hillary Clinton and weaken her campaign.
According to the New York Times, Kushner affirmed his unawareness of the meeting’s purpose. He also attended at the behest of the President’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.
“I have not relied on Russian funds to finance my business activities in the private sector. I have tried to be fully transparent with regard to the filing of my SF-86 form, above and beyond what is required. Hopefully, this puts these matters to rest,” Kushner declared in his prepared remarks.
More reports from the New York Times affirm that certain American officials believe Russian President Vladimir Putin engaged in underhanded activities to hack the 2016 Presidential election in the favor of Donald Trump. Despite the investigations of Congress and the Justice Department, there is no evidence to support such serious and unfounded beliefs.
