President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and special adviser Jared Kushner has inadvertently produced a stunningly effective counternarrative to the allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to tilt the election in the former reality television star’s favor.
In response to a question asked during a private meeting with White House interns, Kushner joked that the shambolic Trump campaign was too disorganized and incompetent to pull off such a remarkable coup.
“They thought we colluded, but we couldn’t even collude with our local offices,” Kushner told congressional interns during a private talk at the Capitol Visitor Center in Washington on Monday afternoon. The remarks were first reported by the magazine Foreign Policy, which was provided a transcription of Kushner’s remarks by an unnamed source.
