Jared Kushner, son-in-law and senior adviser to President Donald Trump, answered investigators questions this morning regarding his alleged connections with Russian officials. Kushner maintained that he had not colluded with Russia during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
After the two-hour questioning from the Senate Intelligence Committee staff, he spoke with reporters outside the White House.
"Let me be very clear. I did not collude with Russia, nor do I know of anyone else in the campaign, who did so,” said Kushner. “Since the first questions were raised in March, I have been consistent in saying I was eager to share whatever information I have with investigating bodies and I have done so today.”
Kushner also dismissed the idea that Russia had anything to do with President Trump’s election victory saying, “Donald Trump had a better message and ran a smarter campaign and that is why he won. Suggesting otherwise ridicules those who voted for him."
Ed Morrissey, Senior Editor of HotAir.com, joined Dana Loesch on today’s “Dana” to discuss Kushner’s handling of the investigation.
“After seeing everything that happened with Donald Trump Jr., it looks like this was a move to get ahead of everything,” said Dana. “And I think it served him well.”
Morrissey agreed, saying, “He’s right. There’s not much there, if that’s all there is.”
