UPDATE 9:50 a.m. EST:
Jared Kushner has volunteered to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, CNN reports.
The Senate seeks to question him over previously undisclosed meetings with Russian diplomat Sergey Kislyak.
It is not clear when Kushner will meet the committee.
ORIGINAL STORY: Jared Kushner, President Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, has a new White House job: head of the Office of American Innovation.
That announcement came hours before The New York Times reported Kushner would face Senate Intelligence Committee questioning on alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
The OAI is a group of business leaders aiming to give Washington fresh ideas from the corporate world, The Washington Post reports.
Kushner will face questioning over meetings with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak that were previously undisclosed. White House spokeswoman Hope Hicks confirmed the two met in December, but that nothing important was discussed.
"He isn't trying to hide anything," she added.
Kushner described the OAI as "offensive" and non-ideological. It's focused largely on technology and big data and is collaborating with Apple CEO Tim Cook, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, among other leaders.
The government should be run like a great American company.
Kushner has grand plans for the OAI. On the agenda at the start are overhauling the Department of Veterans Affairs, providing high-speed Internet to every American, fighting the opioid epidemic and revamping workforce-training programs.
Some of the members of the group have bashed Trump's policies in the past, particularly his travel ban. One leader, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, fundraised for Hillary Clinton's campaign.
"We don't agree on everything," Benioff said. "I'm hopeful that Jared will be collaborative with our industry in moving this forward."
