Jared Kushner Is Not a Crook!

"I am not a colluder!"

Here's an interesting juxtaposition of news articles today:

Rebecca Ballhaus at the Wall Street Journal: Jared Kushner Releases Details on Previously Undisclosed Contact with Russian Ambassador. "Jared Kushner, [Donald] Trump's son-in-law and a senior White House adviser, on Monday released details of his contacts with Russian officials and businesspeople in the two years since Mr. Trump launched his presidential campaign, including a previously undisclosed meeting with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. in April 2016." Oh.

Jeff Mason at Reuters: Kushner, in Statement, Says 'I Did Not Collude' with Foreign Government. "Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior White House adviser Jared Kushner said in a statement to congressional committees on Monday that he 'did not collude' with Russia or seek back channels with Moscow last year. ...Kushner said he had 'perhaps four contacts with Russian representatives' during the 2016 campaign and presidential transition period after Trump's victory." Oh.

Well, that clears everything up.

Obviously, Kushner was just having normal, non-colluding meetings with Russians, like everyone does. Geez.
