In December, a meeting happened between Jared Kushner and Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak at Trump Tower. #FakeNews alert! The meeting was focused on Syria, a source told Fox News.
During this meeting, the Russians asked about a potential secure line to be set up between the Trump administration and Russia, not Kushner. This is very different from a Washington Post article that suggests Kushner was the one looking to create a secure, private line of communication with Russia.
Per Fox News:
Details of the meeting follow a NBC report that Kushner, who is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka, is currently under FBI scrutiny as part of the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Kushner suggested the use of Russian diplomatic facilities as a way to shield pre-inauguration discussions with Kislyak from monitoring, according to The Post.
Kislyak allegedly then relayed the suggestion to his superiors in Moscow. That was based on intercepts of Russian communications that were reviewed by U.S. officials, although neither the meeting nor the communications of the Americans involved were under U.S. surveillance, officials told the Post.
The source has told Fox News that Kushner is eager to tell Congress about the meeting and any others of interest.
Does this come as a surprise to anyone? More #FakeNews from the Washington Post. It is great that Kushner is eager to meet with Congress and distribute the facts about what actually went down in this meeting at Trump Tower.
