McFarland said in a written response to a question from Democratic Senator Cory Booker, a foreign relations committee member, that she was "not aware" of communications between Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn and Sergei Kislyak, when Kislyak was ambassador to Russian Federation.
If senators on the Foreign Relations Committee find that Ms McFarland was evasive in her testimony, it could complicate her nomination to become ambassador to Singapore.
As Axios reported, McFarland was asked about Flynn's communications with Sergey Kislyak by the committee as part of her confirmation process and denied knowing anything about them.
Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker of Tennessee said that he didn't anticipate McFarland would have to return to the committee, but he acknowledged there now was a "major pause" on her nomination.

She served in the White House as Flynn's deputy national security adviser until May. That claim was undercut by a New York Times report over the weekend that she had authored emails during the transition discussing how Flynn should respond to sanctions being imposed on Russian Federation by the Obama administration. The problem with Flynn's confession is two-fold - first of all, he admitted he lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which - unsurprisingly - is illegal; the other factor of this problem is that what he discussed with the Russian Ambassador is also potentially illegal.
