President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, reportedly met in private with the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, NBC News as well as some other outlets reported.

the idea’s not clear what Kushner discussed with lawmakers, as well as spokespeople for senators on the committee as well as Kushner either declined to comment or did not immediately respond on Thursday.

The committee’s security director told NBC News in which Kushner will not return to the committee Thursday.

Mueller’s report did not find evidence of collusion between Trump’s campaign as well as the Russian government, according to a summary provided by Attorney General William Barr on Sunday. The report also did not find sufficient evidence to bring a case against the president on obstruction charges, Barr wrote, though Mueller did not exonerate him.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
