McFarland changes story

K.T. McFarland, President Trump’s former deputy national security adviser, sent an email during the transition that appears to undermine her testimony before Congress in which she denied knowing anything about Michael Flynn's contacts with top Kremlin officials, The New York Times reported Monday.

McFarland told lawmakers on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in July that she did not discuss or have any knowledge of Flynn's contact with then-Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak, the newspaper reported, citing Senate documents.

“I am not aware of any of the issues or events as described above,” McFarland said in response to a written question from Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) after the hearing about knowledge of Flynn's contacts with Kislyak.

A message McFarland sent on Dec. 29 while serving on the Trump transition team appears to be in conflict with her remarks before Congress, according to an email obtained by the Times.

In the email, she reportedly tells another campaign aide that Flynn planned to talk to Kislyak later that day.
