It’s going to be an interesting start to the week for Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner as he is set to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Monday and the House Intelligence Committee the following day. These sessions will be take place behind closed doors and will most likely focus on his involvements with Russian operatives during the campaign as well as in his private business dealings.

Ahead of the sessions on Monday, Kushner issued a statement to both committees claiming that he has interactions with Russia have been limited at best.

“I did not collude, nor know of anyone else in the campaign who colluded, with any foreign government,” the statement read. “I had no improper contacts. I have not relied on Russian funds to finance my business activities in the private sector.”

The committees will be particularly interested in finding out more about what went on during the now infamous meeting set up by Donnie Jr. for the purpose of gaining damaging intel on Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign.

“We have a lot of ground to cover,” said Representative Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday. “We expect this is just going to be the first interview.”
