Report: K.T. McFarland’s Ambassador Nomination in Doubt Over Undisclosed Flynn Talks
K.T. McFarland, President Donald Trump’s former deputy national security adviser and current nominee to be ambassador to Singapore, faces new questions about whether she disclosed her communications with Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser who was indicted for lying to the FBI as part of the Russia investigation. McFarland’s nomination could be in doubt, according to CNN, as the Senate is likely to send her name back to the White House. Earlier reports indicated that McFarland was aware of Flynn’s conversations with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, which was one of the issues special counsel Robert Mueller was examining. But McFarland said in written testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that she was “not aware” of those conversations.
