Kushner May Have Lied Under Oath About Trump Campaign’s Contact With WikiLeaks


Kushner May Have Lied Under Oath About Trump Campaign’s Contact With WikiLeaks

President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner reportedly testified under oath that he was not aware of any communications between Trump campaign officials and WikiLeaks, but the Senate Judiciary Committee says Kushner failed to disclose an email he received from Donald Trump Jr. about contacts he had with WikiLeaks, reports CNN.

Kushner’s testimony appears to contradict a letter from the Senate Judiciary Committee this week disclosing that Kushner had received an email in 2016 from Donald Trump Jr. about contact the president’s eldest son had with the website.

Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the chairman and ranking member on the Judiciary Committee, respectively, sent a letter to Kushner’s lawyer on Thursday which said “other parties have produced September 2016 email communications to Mr. Kushner concerning WikiLeaks, which Мr. Kushner then forwarded to another campaign official.”

The committee’s letter also claims Kushner failed to turn over all the documents they had requested and gave him until Nov. 27 to complete their request.

The Hill reports:

The revelation that Kushner was aware of Trump Jr.’s contacts with WikiLeaks came days after the president’s eldest son confirmed that he had communicated with the group and released the messages they exchanged in the months before the November 2016 election. WikiLeaks published emails that had been stolen from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta, as well as from the Democratic National Committee, before the election.
