Kushner failed to give Senate panel communications about WikiLeaks, Russian overtures

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and ranking member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) wrote a letter to Jared Kushner's lawyer Thursday, stating President Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser did not give the panel's investigators emails he received and forwarded about WikiLeaks and a "Russian backdoor overture and dinner invite."

In their letter to Abbe Lowell, Grassley and Feinstein demand that Kushner turn over "several documents that are known to exist," based on testimony from other witnesses. Those documents include "September 2016 email communications to Mr. Kushner concerning WikiLeaks" and "documents concerning a 'Russian backdoor overture and dinner invite.'" They also said Kushner has not "produced any phone records that we presume exist and would relate to Mr. Kushner's communications" and asked for records of his communications to and about former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. The committee gave Kushner until Nov. 27 to fulfill the request.
