I Did Not Collude

It has been my practice not to appear in the media or leak information in my own defense.  I have tried to focus on the important work at hand and serve this President and this country to the best of my abilities.  I hope that through my answers to questions, written statements and documents I have now been able to demonstrate the entirety of my limited contacts with Russian representatives during the campaign and transition.  I did not collude, nor know of anyone else in the campaign who colluded, with any foreign government.  I had no improper contacts.  I have not relied on Russian funds to finance my business activities in the private sector.  I have tried to be fully transparent with regard to the filing of my SF-86 form, above and beyond what is required.  Hopefully, this puts these matters to rest.
