This is particularly the case given the context, in which the Russians had just helped the Trump campaign by hacking Democratic Party emails and publishing them.Moreover, if such a conversation took place and Mr. Kushner did not disclose it during his security clearance review, that raises additional concerns that will need to be addressed.
