Jared Kushner on Monday firmly denied collusion with Russia during the 2016 election and said that his actions while serving on his father-in-law's campaign were "proper."
"The record and documents I have voluntarily provided will show that all of my actions were proper and occurred in the normal course of events of a very unique campaign," Kushner said 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. I had no improper contacts. I have not relied on Russian funds for my businesses. And I have been fully transparent in providing all requested information."
The brief public remarks largely echoed parts of a written statement he released before a Monday interview with the Senate Intelligence Committee. The panel is probing Russian attempts to influence the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign coordinated with the Kremlin.
