Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand harshly criticized senior adviser to the president Jared Kushner for downplaying Russia’s interference in the 2016 elections, calling it an outrage in an interview on MSNBC on Tuesday.

“For him to make light of a foreign adversary purposely trying to undermine our election is untenable,” said Gillibrand, who is seeking the 2020 Democratic nomination for president.  “And I am gravely concerned that this administration continues to not take this seriously.”

When asked if President Donald Trump should be impeached, the New York senator said, “I think it’s important to keep that on the table, but I think we need a process. And so what I’m looking for is an un-redacted version of the report. I’m looking for a testimony from [special counsel] Robert Mueller as well as [former White House counsel Don] McGahn and the attorney general. I think it’s really important that the American people get the truth and get all the facts.”

She added that “I think it’s an outrage that this administration tried to change the whole purpose of the special counsel statute by having the attorney general place himself between the report itself…Congress at least must have a fully un-redacted copy. And once we are given that, we can decide whether we want to proceed.”

Asked about her poor poll numbers among the Democratic candidates for presidency early in the campaign, Gillibrand said the race “is a marathon and not a sprint.  And I know that I have a vision for this country and the experience to actually get it done and a plan to get it done.”
