A statement submitted to the Senate Intel Committee by Jared Kushner was obtained by the Associated Press on Monday and gives Kushner’s account of the controversial meeting with the Russia lawyer that has left him and brother-in-law Donald Trump Jr. in hot water.

Kushner said in the letter that the meeting garnered no useful information and aides eventually bailed him out.

Check it out (via Daily Caller):

“[I]n looking for a polite way to leave and get back to my work,” Kushner said in the statement, “I actually emailed an assistant from the meeting after I had been there for ten or so minutes and wrote ‘Can u pls call me on my cell? Need excuse to get out of meeting.’”

Kushner noted in the statement that he interacted a handful of times with the Russian Ambassador, but their conversations never went beyond surface-level.

He also cited a time that he emailed an aide to ask for the Ambassador’s name as an example of the fact that his knowledge of Russian affairs in the U.S. were very narrow.

As a general matter, he outright denied any coordinated effort with a foreign government to influence the election, and asserted he did not have substantial financial or commercial ties to Russian interest while in the private sector.

“I did not collude, nor know of anyone else in the campaign who colluded, with any foreign government. I had no improper contacts,” he said. “I have not relied on Russian funds to finance my business activities in the private sector.”

Kushner will appear before the Senate Intel Committee on Monday and the House Intel Committee on Tuesday.
