President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner could be confronting another barbecuing on Capitol Hill after the GOP chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee pronounced that he would not share Kushner’s prior testimony with other committees.
Kushner testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee behind sealed doors in July. The twin of the testimony has not been expelled and if Committee Chair Richard Burr (R-NC) has his way, it never will be.
“We don’t palm out transcripts,” Burr said, according to CNN. “No.”
Earlier this month, ranking members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), pronounced that Kushner would not be forced to attest if they were available to examination his transcripts from the Intelligence Committee testimony.
But now that Burr has refused to let the Judiciary Committee examination the testimony, Kushner could once again be confronting senators in an open or sealed hearing.
“Those committees have not supposing us with transcripts of any of their other declare interviews,” Grassley and Feinstein wrote in a minute to Kushner. “If you are means to secure for the Committee copies of the transcripts from Mr. Kushner’s other interviews, then greatfully yield them and we will consider either the twin satisfies the needs of the investigation.”
Kushner profession Abbe Lowell told CNN that his client has testified once already and “he’ll do it again” if necessary.
Kushner is also confronting a Monday deadline to spin over papers to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The cabinet has requested Kushner’s association with former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and annals of his discussions with WikiLeaks, which was used to disseminate information about Hillary Clinton that was stolen by Russian hackers during the 2016 campaign.
