Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak reported to his superiors that President Trump’s son-in-law and Senior Advisor Jared Kushner asked him about setting up a secret communications channel between Trump’s transition team and the Kremlin using Russian diplomatic facilities in the U.S. to avoid monitoring. Trump’s former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn was in the meeting with Kushner and Kislyak. Flynn was fired for his meetings with Kislyak. Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions also met with Kislyak separately. All three lied about meeting the Russian Ambassador on security clearance applications.
Sergei Kislyak’s account of the meeting was captured by U.S. intelligence.
