Next week will be a big one for Senate committees investigating connections between Trump associates and Russia: Jared Kushner will be testifying in a closed session before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Monday, per ABC News, while Donald Trump Jr. and Paul Manafort are scheduled to appear in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday morning.

Why it matters: This is the group's biggest election cycle effort yet, part of a larger $45 million investment ahead of November's election, and provides a glimpse of how Democrats are trying to take down President Trump on women's health issues while boosting Joe Biden as the alternative.
