Russian state bank says it met with Kushner

White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner arrives for a meeting between President Donald Trump

White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner arrives for a meeting between President Donald Trump

The news came as the White House announced that Kushner, a top adviser in the Trump administration, had volunteered to testify to a Senate committee probing whether Russian Federation tried to interfere in last year's presidential election.

USA officials said that after meeting with Russian Kislyak at Trump Tower last December, a meeting also attended by Flynn, Kushner met later in December with Sergei Gorkov, chairman of Vnesheconombank.

Russian Federation state development bank VEB has meanwhile confirmed that its executives held talks with Kushner, RIA news agency reported on Monday.

The White House Counsel's Office was told this month that the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election, wishes to speak with Kushner regarding meetings he arranged with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, said the newspaper.

The White House said President Donald Trump's son in-law, Jared Kushner, will testify to the Senate Intelligence Committee under Sen.

The Senate Intelligence Committee will reportedly question Jared Kushner as part of its probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

"He isn't trying to hide anything", she said.

Democrats alleged that Russian wanted to tilt the election toward the Republican, a claim dismissed by Trump, while Russia slso denied the allegations.

As tense as all these situations have been and will be going forward for the 36-year-old property developer, it's Mr Kushner's dealings with Russian officials that may put him in the sharpest spotlight.

The meeting occurred before Rep. Devin Nunes disclosed at a news conference last Wednesday that USA spy agencies may have inadvertently captured Trump and his associates in routine targeting of foreigners' communications.

The committee is looking into Russia's attempt to meddle in last year's presidential election, as well as possible ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

White House spokesman Spicer did not shed any light on who at the White House helped Nunes gain access to a secure location.

Committee members Richard Burr and Mark Warner said in a joint statement that they are committed to follow the facts wherever the investigation leads them.

An official familiar with the Senate investigation said that the details of the interview have not yet been set, and the Trump associates will speak to the committee on the committee's terms.

"The chairman is extremely concerned by the possible improper unmasking of names of USA citizens, and he began looking into this issue even before President Trump tweeted his assertion that Trump Tower had been wiretapped", Langer said.

The Senate panel's decision to question Kushner would make him the closest person to the president to be called upon in any of the investigations, and the only one now serving in the White House.
