K.T. McFarland, President Trump's former Deputy National Security Adviser, withdrew her nomination for U.S. Ambassador to Singapore.

Why it matters: McFarland's chances of being confirmed stalled after an email revealed she knew about Michael Flynn's contacts with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, despite testifying to the Senate that she knew nothing of their communications.
