Kushner agrees to speak to Senate panel about Russia
WASHINGTON -President Donald Trump's son-in-law has volunteered to answer questions before the Senate Intelligence Committee about arranging meetings with the Russian ambassador and other officials.
The White House says Jared Kushner has agreed to speak with North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr's committee but has not yet received confirmation of a meeting. The White House noted that throughout the 2016 presidential campaign and transition Kushner served as the main point of contact with foreign governments and officials.
It was not immediately clear when or how the questioning would take place or whether Kushner would be under oath.
Lawmakers have been investigating possible ties between Trump's campaign and Russian officials and whether Russia meddled in the 2016 election.
