Rick Gerson meets with Jared Kushner at the White House to go over the Putin-approved Russia-U.S. plan drafted by Kirill Dmitriev.

Gerson went to see Kushner at the White House to brief him on Dmitriev and hand him the reconciliation plan. Kushner told the Senate Intelligence Committee during an interview that he gave a copy of that plan to Bannon and incoming Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, according to a recent committee report.

Vladimir Putin had tasked Dmitriev with connecting to the Trump transition team. Dmitriev tried arranging a meeting with Kushner or Donald Trump Jr. through George Nader, an American colleague who is currently in prison for child pornography.

Dmitriev also got in touch with Rick Gerson, a close friend of Kushner’s. Together they drafted a plan for how the Trump administration could support Russia’s motives for the U.S., and Dmitriev shared the plan with Putin.

On January 11, 2017, Dmitriev and Nader met with Erik Prince on a remote island in the Indian Ocean to go over the plan. Prince is a close friend of Steve Bannon, and Bannon sent Prince to the meeting on his behalf. Prince is also the brother of Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.
