Washington D. C. [USA], Mar. 28 (ANI): U. S. President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior advisor, Jared Kushner, has volunteered to speak to the Senate Intelligence Committee as part of its investigation into Russian meddling in the US election. "Throughout the campaign and transition, Jared Kushner served as the official primary point of contact with foreign governments and officials. Given this role, he has volunteered to speak with Chairman Burr's Committee, but has not yet received confirmation," the CNN reported a White House spokesman as saying on Monday. The Senate committee sought Kushner, who is a key adviser to the President, as part of its investigation, according to sources. The timing is still being determined, a Senate aide said. The New York Times first reported the Senate committee's request, because of his role in arranging meetings between campaign advisers and Russian ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak, along with other foreign leaders. Last week FBI Director James Comey confirmed that federal investigators are investigating ties between Trump's top campaign aides and Russian officials. Comey also shot down Trump's claims he was wiretapped in Trump Tower by former president Barack Obama. (ANI)
