Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law, is to be questioned by a senate committee over his meetings with Russia. Kushner has had meetings with Russians with ties to their government multiple times. Kushner was present with Michael Flynn when he met with Sergey Kislyak at Trump Tower.
After Russia began it’s major conflicts with Crimea, the United States placed sanctions on Russia. At Mr. Kislyak’s request, Mr. Kushner latermet with Sergey N. Gorkov, the chief of Vnesheconombank, which the United States placed on its sanctions list after President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia annexed Crimea and began meddling in Ukraine.
The Senate Intelligence Committee is going to question Jared Kushner over his meetings with Russian officials and Russians with ties to their government. The Senate Intelligence Committee will question Kushner as part of their larger investigation into possible collusion between Trump and Russia.
Many Americans believe that there was indeed collusion between Donald Trump and Russia, while others do not agree. Regardless, the resignation of Michael Flynn only sets of bad alarms, as well as undisclosed meetings between Kushner and Russian officials or those with Russian government ties.
Many also say that there is nothing wrong with an adviser to a President meeting with other ambassadors of different countries, and is simply part of the process of diplomacy or discussion. However, the FBI will continue it’s investigation into whether President Trump colluded with Russia or not.
