WASHINGTON (AP) — A Russian state bank says it has met with President Donald Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, as part of a series of meetings on future strategies.
Vnesheconombank (v-NESH’-ay-CON’-ohm-bank) or VEB said in Monday’s statement carried by state RIA Novosti news agency that it met with Kushner last year as part of ‘road show’ discussions with representatives of leading financial institutions in Europe, Asia and the United States. It said the meetings focused on global development banks’ strategies and perspective sectors. VEB provided no further details.
Kushner has agreed to speak to the Senate intelligence committee, which is investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.
The White House said Kushner was “doing his job” by reaching out to foreign officials.
