Washington D.C. [USA], July 25 (ANI): A protester on Monday tried to get U.S. President Donald Trump's son in law and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner to sign a Russian flag after his meeting with Senate Intelligence Committee staffers on Monday. The protestor, Ryan Clayton, jumped out from behind a crowd of reporters on Capitol Hill and threw a Russian flag at Kushner as he yelled, "Will you sign my Russian flag? Sign my Russian flag please!," reports the Hill. Clayton, the president of progressive group Americans Take Action, said in a statement. "Kushner is the mastermind behind the Trump campaign's collusion with Russian agents in last year's election." Meanwhile, prior to talking with the committee, Kushner released his written statement to Congress that said he did "not collude" with Russia. Kushner came at the centre of the Russia controversy after a report revealed that Kushner, and then-campaign manager Paul Manafort had agreed to meet with a Russian lawyer who was promising to deliver damaging research on Hillary Clinton that would have impacted the campaign in June of 2016. Kushner will testify to the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday. (ANI)
