Kushner, Flynn met with Russia's ambassador to 'establish a line of communication'


President Donald Trump's son-in-law turned senior adviser Jared Kushner and former national security adviser Michael Flynn reportedly scheduled an undisclosed meeting with Russian Ambassador Sergey I. Kislyak in December to "establish a line of communication" between the incoming administration and the Russian government, the New York Times reported.

The extent and frequency of their contacts remain unclear.

News of the meeting surfaced just as Attorney General Jeff Sessions continues to face condemnation from congressional lawmakers for failing to disclose two meetings he had with Russian officials during the 2016 election.

When Sen. Al Franken asked if there was any evidence that Trump surrogates communicated with the Russian government during the 2016 election, Sessions said he was "not aware of any of those activities" in his Senate confirmation hearing.
