Flynn was asked to resign in February amid revelations that he misled senior administration officials about his contacts with Russian government officials.

The White House confirmed McFarland’s move in a statement Friday, saying, “K.T.’s work in developing policies that put American interests first will have a lasting impact.”

McFarland had been working as a Fox News analyst before joining Trump’s national security team. She previously worked for three Republican presidents — Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan.

The position is pending Senate confirmation.
