“I found him to be straightforward and forthcoming. He wanted to answer every question that we had,” Republican Representative Mike Conaway said.

Democratic Representative Adam Schiff said Kushner and his lawyer were receptive to coming back for additional questioning. “It was a very productive session,” Schiff said.
