Jared Kushner has become a household name since his father-in-law became the most powerful man in the free world. Kushner is married to Ivanka Trump and is now an adviser to President Trump himself.
Recently, allegations that Kushner colluded with the Russians have dominated media headlines. For the first time, Kushner spoke out publicly to denounce the allegations. His speech followed his meeting with the Senate Intelligence Committee.
"I did not collude, nor know of anyone else in the campaign who colluded, with any foreign government," he wrote. "I had no improper contacts. I have not relied on Russian funds to finance my business activities in the private sector."
Social media was flooded with tweets and comments from users. Some accused Kushner of dishonesty while others praised his efforts. Watch the video below to see his full speech.
At one point, following the meeting, Kushner was walking down a hall when a man approached him. The unknown man asked Jared to autograph a Russian flag. He was quickly dealt with by security officers.
