Jared Kushner is speaking out after talking to the Senate Intelligence Committee during a meeting Monday.
Kushner, President Donald Trump‘s son-in-law and White House advisor, took questions from the committee in regard to Russian meddling during the 2016 presidential election and whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin.
After meeting, which lasted about two hours, Kushner stepped to the microphone outside of the White House and assured viewers that he has been fully cooperating with the investigation and did nothing wrong.
“Since the first questions were raised in March, I’ve been consistent in saying that I was eager to share any information that I have with the investigating bodies and I have done so today,” Kushner said. “The record and documents I’ve voluntarily provided will show all of my actions were proper and occurred in the normal course of events of a very unique campaign.
“Let me be very clear, I did not collude with Russia, nor do I know anyone else in the campaign who did so. I had no improper contacts. I have not relied on Russian funds for my businesses and I’ve been fully transparent in providing all requested information.”

Before heading to the meeting, Kushner continued his denial of collusion with Russia and said that he had “nothing to hide” in an 11-page statement.
Kushner, who served as a senior member of the Trump campaign, said in the statement that he’s “not a person who has sought the spotlight,” adding that there “has been a great deal of conjecture, speculation and inaccurate information” about him. He said he felt “grateful for the opportunity to set the record straight.”
The statement continues that Kushner had four meetings with Russians in 2016 and said he didn’t do anything unlawful during them.
“I did not collude, nor know of anyone else in the campaign who colluded, with any foreign government,” the statement said. “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, above and beyond what is required. Hopefully, this puts these matters to rest.”
Kushner will be back on Capitol Hill on Tuesday answering additional questions about the Russian meddling.
