Kushner Speaks: Russia Meeting Was So Boring, My Aides Bailed Me Out

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner gave an account of his meeting with Kremlin-aligned lawyers during the 2016 presidential election for the first time Monday, telling a congressional panel that the meeting was so unproductive, he asked an aide to bail him out.

The Associated Press obtained an 11-page written statement Kushner submitted to the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is conducting its own probe of Russian interference in last year’s election.
