K.T. McFarland delivers the Trump team’s latest misleading Russia denial

Plenty of heads turned Saturday when it was reported that Trump transition adviser K.T. McFarland had described in a December 2016 email how Russia “has just thrown the U.S.A. election to [Trump]." The fuller context of the email later suggested she was merely paraphrasing Democrats' arguments.

But that email now has McFarland in some hot water for another reason: Namely, how she appears to have given a Democratic senator a misleading response to his written question about Michael Flynn's contacts with Russia's ambassador. And in doing so, she becomes the latest in a long, long line of those around Trump who have obscured their Russia-related contacts.

But how bad was McFarland's response? Let's break down the exchange.

Notably, the July query by Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) began with an extensive preamble recalling warnings Flynn received that his contacts with the Russian ambassador would likely be monitored by American intelligence, as well as a letter a Democratic congressman wrote asking about Flynn's work in Turkey. (The full preamble is pasted at the bottom of this post.) Then it outlined one specific question, to which McFarland provided a one-sentence response:

BOOKER: Did you ever discuss any of General Flynn's contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak directly with General Flynn?

MCFARLAND: I am not aware of any of the issues or events as described above.

Booker, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee which is considering McFarland's nomination to become ambassador to Singapore, said Monday that McFarland's response to his question was an “alarming development” and that the newly revealed transition emails suggest she gave “false testimony.”
