President Trump's son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner is expected to meet with staff from the Senate Intelligence committee in coming days, according to a senator on the panel.

Both the Senate and House Intelligences committees are investigating Russia's attempt to manipulate the outcome of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election as well as allegations of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and high-ranking Russian officials. That did not mean, however, that Kushner is suspected of committing a crime or that the investigators intend to charge him.

The Senate Intelligence Committee is conducting an investigation into alleged Russian attempts to interfere in the US presidential election, and whether there were any ties between that alleged effort and associates of Trump.
