Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law has defended his actions during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, after giving evidence to a Senate Intelligence Committee investigating Russian interference in the election.

“The record and documents I have voluntarily provided will show that all of my actions were proper and occurred in the normal course of events of a very unique campaign,” Kushner said outside the White House.

“Let me be very clear: I did not collude with Russia, nor do I know of anyone else in the campaign who did so. I had no improper contacts. I have not relied on Russian funds for my businesses. And I have been fully transparent in providing all requested information.”

Kushner is a senior adviser to the president and was in charge of the campaign’s digital strategy.

He is married to Mr Trump’s daughter, Ivanka.

Speaking at the White House after a closed-door session of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Kushner said he had been “fully transparent in providing all the requested information”.

In a statement to both congressional committees released before the Senate session on Monday, he said there were “hardly any” contacts with Russian representatives, adding later that there were “perhaps four”.
