Key Words: Jared Kushner: Trump campaign was too disorganized to collude

Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and top adviser, told congressional interns that Trump’s presidential campaign was too disorganized to collude with the Russians, according to a report Monday.

“They thought we colluded, but we couldn’t even collude with our local offices.”

In an interesting line of defense, Kushner said Trump’s election team was barely talking to each other: “They thought we colluded, but we couldn’t even collude with our local offices,” he said, according to a report by Foreign Policy.

Kushner met with the interns in a private meeting at the Capitol on Monday.

Kushner also reportedly said that “we don’t know where it’s going,” when asked about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion and Russian election meddling.

Earlier this month, Kushner denied colluding with Russian officials, and later said Trump didn’t need Russian help to win the election because he ran a “smarter campaign” than Hillary Clinton.

On Monday, he also brushed off criticism of his failure to disclose contacts with Russian officials on his security clearance application. “There are 127 pages on the SF-86, but there are only two you guys have to worry about,” he said, according to Foreign Policy.

Ironically, the interns were apparently warned by their director not to leak the contents of Kushner’s talk. But hours later, Foreign Policy published Kushner’s remarks. “I’m a lot more comfortable talking to you guys today ’cause there isn’t any press,” Kushner reportedly said.
