Corker: McFarland's nomination 'frozen' over contradictions in her testimony

06 Décembre 2017

According to CNN, court documents laying out the charge against Flynn state he spoke to a senior transition team official about what to discuss with Kislyak after the Obama administration issued new sanctions against Russian Federation.

President Trump nominated the former Fox News analyst-turned-deputy national security adviser to the diplomatic post of ambassador to Singapore back in June. During that call, Mr. Flynn urged Moscow to respond cautiously to sanctions just imposed by the Obama administration for Russia's interference in the presidential election.

Flynn pleaded guilty on Friday to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contacts with Russian Federation, and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors delving into the actions of Trump's inner circle before he took office.

Flynn pleaded guilty last week to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Kislyak in the month before Trump took office, and acknowledged that he is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the election, as well as possible collusion between Trump campaign members and Russians.

And as part of the confirmation process, she had to submit answers to questions from the Senate, which ultimately confirms or rejects ambassadors.

"If she did testify inappropriately, obviously that's a big, big problem", Chairman Bob Corker (R-TN) told CNN's Manu Raju.

And CBS is reporting she also spoke to Flynn about it.

In his written questions, Mr Booker asked, "Did you ever discuss any of Gen Flynn's contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak directly with Gen Flynn?" "I mean, that's at a minimum", Corker said.

Her written questions to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee did not acknowledge that conversation.

Court documents state that Flynn discussed what he should tell Mr Kislyak with another transition official beforehand and briefed that person afterward.

Ms McFarland worked so closely with Flynn on the transition team that her colleagues sometimes referred to her as his "brain".
