WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser has finished meeting with lawmakers on the House intelligence committee.

The panel that heard from Jared Kushner for about three hours Tuesday is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign and possible involvement of Trump associates.

Kushner had a similar interview with staff on the Senate intelligence panel Monday.

Kushner faces questions about his involvement in a June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer. The meeting was billed in emails to Donald Trump Jr. as a Russian government attempt to help Trump’s campaign.

Kushner said Monday that he did not collude with Russians. He also said he was unaware of anyone in the campaign who did.
