Kushner To Start Testifying On Russia Election Interference By Mid-June

President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner will begin his journey through the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation by meeting with committee staffers in mid-June.

NBC reported Thursday that Kushner, who is described as a “person of interest” in the probe into Russia’s attempt to intervene in the 2016 elections, will meet with staff members working on the Senate investigation. According to the report, the meeting, however, will not relieve Kushner of need to speak personally to committee members and to provide the panel with documents relating to his ties with Russian officials.

Among the issues expected to come up in Kushner’s meeting with Senate staffers are his conversations with the Russian ambassador to Washington, with a Russian banker close to Putin, as well as Kushner’s offer to establish a secret back channel for communications between Trump’s presidential transition team and the Kremlin, an offer former FBI director James Comey said would create an “obvious” risk to American intelligence.
