Along with other Trump officials, he attended a June 2016 meeting with a Russian lobbyist who indicated she had damaging information about Democrat Hillary Clinton.Kushner disclosed the meeting on his security clearance paperwork, but Democrats have questioned how much he disclosed.Democratic Sens.
