Clearly "the best people" are those who lie just as he The Whining Donald

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - K.T. McFarland, picked by President Donald Trump to
be the U.S. ambassador to Singapore, withdrew from consideration for the job
on Friday after her nomination became stalled in the U.S. Senate.
McFarland was on Trump’s presidential transition team and later appointed
deputy national security adviser under Michael Flynn.
Trump nominated McFarland last May to be the U.S. envoy to Singapore. When
the U.S. Senate did not act on the nomination by the end of 2017 the White
House resubmitted her nomination in early January.
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee said in December that McFarland’s
nomination had been delayed due to concerns about her testimony to Congress
over communications with Russia.
McFarland had 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 Russia.
However, the New York Times reported early in December that it had obtained
an email McFarland sent on Dec. 29, 2016, the day former President Barack
Obama’s administration authorized new sanctions against Russia, saying Flynn
would talk to Kislyak that evening.
