Former Deputy National Security Adviser KT McFarland is an unnamed senior official referred to in the court papers filed in the Michael Flynn case.

She was involved in a discussion with Flynn about what he would say to Russian government officials in response to U.S. sanctions imposed on Russia last year.

That's according to two former officials on President Donald Trump's transition team. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to public discuss the matter.

McFarland is identified in court papers filed Friday as a "senior transition" official. Papers filed by special counsel Robert Mueller show Flynn contacted McFarland on Dec. 29, 2016, to discuss what, if anything, he would communicate to the Russians about the sanctions. Flynn admitted Friday to lying to the FBI about the contents of that conversation.

McFarland is awaiting Senate confirmation as ambassador to Singapore.
