President Trump's son-in-law and special adviser Jared Kushner and special counsel Robert Mueller, head of the probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election, are expected to soon meet with Senate Intelligence Committee, according to various sources and published reports.

Jared Kushner is set to meet with staffers of the Senate Intel Committee this month.

Kushner, who is married to Trump's eldest daughter, Ivanka, has come under FBI scrutiny in the Russian Federation investigation, NBC News reported in late May.

Kislyak is believed to have rejected the proposal as it could have compromised the integrity of Russian communications equipment.

Let me go back, if I can, very briefly, to the decision to publicly go out with your results on the e-mail. McCain conflated the Hillary email server scandal with the investigation of Russia's hacking of the DNC.

Shortly before leaving office, former President Barack Obama imposed additional sanctions on Russian Federation after receiving information from the intelligence community suggesting the country tried to sabotage Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's campaign.

Late May, officials told NBC that FBI investigators believe that Kushner has significant information relevant to their inquiry.

Trump spokesperson Hope Hicks said in March that Kushner didn't have anything to hide.

The White House has characterized the meeting as part of Kushner's role as a transition adviser and conduit for the State Department. Richard Burr and Mark Warner's, the Republican chair and Democratic vice chair of the Intelligence Committee, declined to comment to NBC News. A hearing could happen as early as the end of June, according to reports by CNN and NBC, with sources familiar with the matter claiming specific times for the hearing "are ongoing" for Kushner to appear.
