Donald Trump's son in law and senior adviser Jared Kushner will offer details of four meetings he had with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign and transition period, but will deny any "improper contacts" or collusion.
Kushner is due to testify in a closed-door hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee today, before appearing in front of the House equivalent tomorrow, as part of ongoing probes into Trump's dealings with Russia.
Among the four meetings, Kushner is expected to discuss one with a Russian lawyer set up by Donald Trump Jr.
Kushner will submit an 11-page prepared statement detailing his interactions with "typical contacts", including the Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak and other Russian officials in his role as liaison to foreign governments.
“I did not collude, nor know of anyone else in the campaign who colluded, with any foreign government,” Kushner writes.
“I had no improper contacts. I have not relied on Russian funds to finance my business activities in the private sector.”
According to the document his first meeting was in April 2016 at the Washington's Mayflower Hotel, where Trump was giving a major foreign policy speech, which Kushner says he oversaw.
