According to the Former Russian prosecutor, Natalie Veselnitskaya, she was initially denied a U.S. Visa to enter the county but was later given immigration parole. But Trump hasn't said much of anything about Kushner this week, even as he's defended his son, Donald Trump, Jr., who invited Kushner to the rendezvous with Veselnitskaya.
