Sens. Chuck Grassley and Dianne Feinstein, the top Republican and Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, have written to Jared Kushner noting that he received emails last September about a "Russia backdoor overture and dinner invite" and about Wikileaks, and failed to disclose them to the committee, Politico reports.

Why it matters: Kushner has a history of not disclosing information and filling out forms incorrectly. Grassley and Feinstein wrote, "If, as you suggest, Mr. Kushner was unaware of, for example, any attempts at Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, then presumably there would be few communications concerning many of the persons identified."
