Following his lengthy prepared remarks and closed-door hearings this morning, Presidential-son-in-law Jared Kushner is about to make a statement (presumably to front-run the leaks which will inevitably flow from the hearing).
He released a statement ahead of the testimony earlier today where he denied collusion and improper contacts in the four contacts he had with Russian representatives during the 2016 presidential campaign.
“I did not collude, nor know of anyone else in the campaign who colluded, with any foreign government,” reads a section of his statement.
“I had no improper contacts. 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 [security clearance], above and beyond what is required. Hopefully, this puts these matters to rest.”
Whether his incoming comments will add on to the earlier statement remains to be seen.
