WASHINGTON, March 31 (Reuters) – Former President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner made a “valuable” appearance on Thursday before a US House of Representatives committee investigating the January 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol, Rep. Was. Panel member Luria said.

“It was really valuable for us to have the opportunity to speak with him,” Luria told MSNBC. The Democratic representative declined to provide details about Kushner’s appearance before the panel via videolink, but said he commented on various reports about events that day that have already been published.

“He was able to voluntarily provide us with information to verify, confirm, provide his opinion on this separate reporting,” she said.

Kushner is the former president’s first close relative known to have spoken on the House select committee. He also served as a senior adviser to the Trump White House.

A committee spokesman declined comment.

The Select Committee has conducted hundreds of interviews in its investigation into last year’s attack on the Capitol by Trump supporters, as lawmakers prepared to testify to Republicans’ defeat in the November 2020 presidential election by Democratic President Joe Biden.
