Jared Kushner told Senate investigators: "I did not collude with Russians, nor do I know of anyone in the campaign who did..."
The New York Times reported on Kushner's prepared, voluntary statement in an attempt to harness the political storm surrounding the ongoing Russia investigation.

One commenter on the NYT article nailed it when she said, "I don't take meetings without knowing what they are and I'm a suburban divorced woman who works part-time in a jewelry store."
Twitter praised her for her pointed comment, and the wisecracks were overflowing.
