Jared Kushner to meet Intelligence committee staff

Jared Kushner to meet Intelligence committee staff”

A date has not yet been set, the sources said. Investigators believe he has information relevant to their inquiry, US officials said.

According to Hunt, the meeting is the first step toward Kushner providing documents to the panel and answering its questions.

This comes as reports revealed Kushner tried to set up a line of communication with Russian officials during President Trump's transition in January. That did not mean, however, that Kushner is suspected of committing a crime or that the investigators intend to charge him.

Kushner notably did not disclose these meetings and it has been reported that he "suggested setting up a private line of communication between the Trump transition team and Russian Federation".

The meeting comes amid mounting investigations into whether Trump campaign advisers colluded with the Russian government to influence the 2016 United States election.

"Jared Kushner is one of the most influential people in Trump's orbit and coincidentally is also right in the thick of this scandal", American Bridge spokeswoman Sabrina Singh said in a statement.

"He isn't trying to hide anything and wants to be transparent", Hicks said according to a report in the New York Times. Richard Burr and Mark Warner's, the Republican chair and Democratic vice chair of the Intelligence Committee, declined to comment to NBC News. It was on March 27, not this past Monday.
