Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law, delivered a rare statement outside the White House on Monday to tell the public what he has told Congress: that the Trump campaign was innocent of underhanded dealings with Russia.
I did not collude, nor know of anyone else in the campaign who colluded, with any foreign government. I had no improper contacts. I have not relied on Russian funds to finance my business activities in the private sector.
