Trump’s son-in-law and advisor has defended his contact with Russian officals

Jared Kusher, US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and advisor, has denied collusion allegations at the White House on Monday.

“All of my actions were proper and occurred in the normal course of events in a very unique campaign,” Kusher said.

“I did not collude with Russians, nor do I know of anyone in the campaign who did.”

The statement comes as after he testified to senators about his conduct as part of a broader investigation into Russian interference in last year’s US Presidential election.

He said President Trump won the election because he had a better message and ran a smarter campaign than Hillary Clinton.

The former investor reiterated he had “no improper contacts” during the campaign and did not rely on Russian money in his business dealings.
