K T McFarland withdrawn from ambassador to Singapore

Vastavam web: President Donald Trump said Friday that K T McFarland has withdrawn from consideration to be ambassador to Singapore.Trump expressed his “disappointment” and said McFarland served the administration “with distinction.”Flynn was fired by Trump in February for misleading senior administration officials about his contacts with Russia’s ambassador to the US. He pleaded guilty to one count of making false statements to FBI agents and is now cooperating with Mueller’s investigation.

McFarland’s nomination was not taken up by the Republican-led Senate by the end of last year, leading to a re-nomination in January. According to two former transition officials, McFarland was referenced in court papers as an unnamed Trump transition team member who spoke with Flynn in 2016 about what, if anything, to say about sanctions that had just been imposed on Russia by the Obama administration in response to election meddling.
