Former top White House official K.T. McFarland has reportedly revised her statement to the special counsel’s office about her knowledge of former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s Russian contacts.

McFarland made the revision after her reported testimony to Robert Mueller’s investigators––stating that she never talked to Flynn about his discussions with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak about sanctions––was contradicted by Flynn’s guilty plea last year, The Washington Post reports.

“On that call, Flynn and [McFarland] discussed the U.S. sanctions, including the potential impact of those sanctions on the incoming administration’s foreign policy goals,” read a line in Flynn’s plea agreement.

The former top Trump aide told investigators in her revised statement that Flynn may have been talking about sanctions during a 2016 conversation the two had that McFarland initially denied had anything to do with sanctions targeting Russia’s government, according to The Post.
