Rep. Ted Lieu on Sunday ribbed White House Senior Aide Jared Kushner for allegedly attempting to set up a private communication channel between Russia and Donald Trump’s transition team.

Kushner has been under tremendous scrutiny following a Washington Post report Friday that said he spoke with a top Russian official in December about establishing a private communications channel. The Democratic National Committee quickly called for the Trump to fire him from his White House post, and some of his colleagues in the West Wing have questioned whether he can survive politically.

Lieu, a Democrat from California, last week called for Kushner to be prosecuted for not disclosing at least three contacts with Russia's ambassador to the U.S. during and after the 2016 presidential campaign. 

"Certification for my SF86 security clearance form," Lieu tweeted alongside a picture of the form. "Which says false statement punishable by imprisonment. Jared Kushner lied on his form." 

"If this is true, #Kushner needs to resign. He should also be prosecuted for lying on his security clearance form, a federal crime," Lieu said.
