A new report from Foreign Policy suggests Jared Kushner may have perjured himself during closed-door congressional testimony earlier this year.
A source tells the publication that Kushner testified that he “never had contact with Wikileaks or Assange — nor did anyone else on the campaign.”
This directly contradicts what we now know about Donald Trump Jr.’s direct interactions with WikiLeaks via Twitter direct messages, in which the president’s son coordinated with the website about promoting the release of leaked emails stolen from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.
What’s more, Trump Jr. forwarded some of his communications with WikiLeaks to Kushner, meaning he could very well have known that there were contacts between the campaign and the website during the 2016 presidential election.
Politico reported earlier this week that Senate Judiciary Committee investigators are looking into emails Kushner received that concerned both WikiLeaks and a “Russian backdoor overture and dinner invite” that he failed to turn over last month, despite being specifically requested to do so.
