The Russian bogey refuses to die away. It keeps resurfacing at awkward moments and Donald Trump must be wondering how he can rid himself of this bogey. Russia and America have been antagonists since the end of World War II and most Americans are suspicious of Russian intentions. Now it is learned that the Senate Intelligence Committee will question jared kushner. This is part of the ongoing probe into the supposed Russian interference in the last presidential election. Kushner is a close aide and the right-hand man of the president. The Intelligence committee is keen to question the son-in-law of Trump about some meetings which he had arranged with the Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

This was reported by the Times.

White House confirms meetings

The White House has confirmed to the Wall Street Journal that Kushner has agreed to slot a meeting with the committee. Kushner is pretty confident and has volunteered to provide information to the committee. The White House has already acknowledged that Jared was part of a meeting in December last year along with security advisor Micheal Flynn with the Russian Ambassador. It is reported that the only point on the agenda was better relations between Russia and the USA.

The Russian ambassador had requested a second meeting, but Kushner sent his deputy to attend. The Ambassador wanted Kushner to meet with Sergey Gorkov the chief of Vnesheconomnank, a Russian bank against which sanctions are imposed.

Kushner did meet Gorkov sometime later. It is claimed that Kushner met with dozens of foreign officials during this period. He has no hesitation to speak about it.

FBI investigation

The FBI Director James Comey has already confirmed that investigations are underway on possible links between Trump's team and the Russians. They are investigating attempts by Russia to interfere in the 2016 election in support of Trump.This won't be happy news for Trump whose presidency seems to be bedeviled with problems from day 1. He also has the lowest approval ratings for a president at the start of his term in US history.
