‘What is the name of the Russian ambassador?’

President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner spent more than two hours hours Monday morning answering questions from Senate Intelligence committee investigators his contacts with Russians – and announced the experience ‘great.’

‘It was great. I answered as many as they had,’ Kushner said as left a closed meeting in the Senate’s Hart office building.
That was all he said to throng of reporters and photographers who awaited words from the notoriously tight-lipped top advisor to President Trump after meeting with a bank of Intelligence staffers behind closed doors.

Kushner, accompanied by his lawyer Abbe Lowell as he walked by reporters, ignored a question from DailyMail.com about his latest disclosure – that he proposed a secure line of communication to Moscow in order to get information from Russian ‘generals’ touted by Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak.

Then, as he walked down a hallway packed with a crush of media, activist Ryan Clayton tried to hand Kushner a Russian flag to get him to sign it.

‘I think he’s a liar. And everyone who reads that statement knows he’s a liar,’ said Clayton, as penned-in reporters recorded him. ‘He is communicating through secret back channels with agents of the Russian government. We all know it. Why does everyone in the White House have all these connections to Russia?’

Kushner was set to address the media outside the White House later Monday afternoon. He told CNN he answered all the questions that the Senate probers had.

Although he didn’t take an oath before answering questions, it is against the law to give false information to Congress.

In a new bombshell statement issued early Monday morning, Kushner admitted he was in contact with the Russians four times during the presidential election and transition but denies that he colluded with Vladimir Putin’s government.
President Donald Trump’s son-in-law admits he was in contact with the Russians four times during the presidential election and transition but denies that he colluded with Vladimir Putin’s government.

Jared Kushner, a senior adviser to the president who is married to Trump’s eldest daughter Ivanka, released a 3,600-word statement ahead of his meeting today with congressional investigators probing Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential contest.

The bombshell statement acknowledges a meeting with Sergey Kislyak but describes the Russian ambassador as someone Kushner barely knows, and details his participation in an infamous meeting at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer but says he tried to get out of it early.

In a new revelation about talk of setting up direct line of communication with the Kremlin, Kushner says the idea was to communicate with Russian ‘generals’ about Syria, but the idea got abandoned when Moscow didn’t provide use of its secure facilities.
