He will speak to the Senate Intelligence Committee in private on Monday and then appear before the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday. He says he arrived late and when he heard the lawyer discussing the issue of adoptions, he texted his assistant to call him out.

The president's son Donald Trump Jr and former campaign manager, Paul Manafort last week reportedly agreed to provide records to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Mr Kushner released his opening statement ahead of the panel meeting.

"I did not collude, nor know of anyone else in the campaign who colluded, with any foreign government".

"I had no improper contacts", the president's son-in-law wrote in his statement.

"I have not relied on Russian funds for my businesses and I have been fully transparent in providing all requested information". That comes despite the conclusions of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and USA intelligence agencies, which agree that Russian Federation orchestrated a campaign of hacks and online leaks in an attempt to manipulate the election's outcome in Trump's favor. Moscow has denied any interference, and the United States president says his campaign did not collude with Moscow.

The president called Sessions, who he's had a strained relationship with since the attorney general recused himself from investigations related to Trump's campaign, "beleaguered" and asked why the Justice Department and Congress aren't investigating "Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russian Federation relations".

In response to reporting from The New York Times, Trump Jr. posted emails on Twitter earlier this month showing him setting up a meeting with a Russian attorney a year ago through an acquaintance in hopes of potentially receiving damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

"There is a lot we want to know", Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said on CBS News' "Face the Nation" Sunday.

Jared Kushner said, "Donald Trump had a better message and ran a smarter campaign, and that is why he won".

Kushner's statement was aimed at holding on to Trump's base.

"Kushner has repeatedly concealed information about his personal finances and meetings with foreign officials", Wyden said.

He said no part of the meeting he attended "included anything about the campaign" and he had no knowledge of any documents being offered or accepted.

"I'm not concerned, because if they don't they will be subpoenaed", said Feinstein.

Also on the table would be the report that Kushner had tried to set up a back channel with Russian official and business leaders during the campaign and transition period.

Russia's ambassador to Washington told his superiors in Moscow that he discussed campaign-related matters, including policy issues important to Moscow, with Jeff Sessions during the 2016 presidential race, contrary to public assertions by the embattled attorney general, according to current and former USA officials. Kushner rejected the veracity of reports stating he had twice conversed with Kislyak via phone between April-November of previous year.

In a meeting with Kislyak after the election, on December 1, Kushner said he articulated a desire for the United States to make a fresh start with Russian Federation.

Despite Sessions' support of Trump during the campaign and his decision to lie under oath at his congressional hearings about his own contact with elements of the Russian government during the campaign, Trump has continued to express displeasure about his lieutenant. Nothing else occurred. I did not suggest a "secret back channel'".

"I did not raise the possibility of using the embassy or any other Russian facility for any goal other than this one possible conversation in the transition period". He said the men did not discuss sanctions against Russian Federation or anything about "my companies, business transactions, real estate projects, loans, banking arrangements or any private business of any kind".

Mr. Trump was also great to be refuted repeated Russian president Vladimir Putin after their meeting at the G20 summit in Hamburg in July.

For the first time, Kushner said he got an email one week before the election from someone he didn't recognize called "Guccifer400".

However, Axios points out that even Republican Senators might have a hard time backing the former New York Mayor in that position or any position in the cabinet-given the length of and the tenacity of his support for Trump and given the need now for independence of the AG office. He said he sent in a supplemental form the next day, disclosing he had numerous contacts with foreign officials, and provided a list of those contacts "in the normal course".
