WASHINGTON—K.T. McFarland, a former top adviser to President Donald Trump, asked the White House on Friday to withdraw her nomination to be U.S. ambassador to Singapore. McFarland served on Trump’s transition team and then as deputy national security adviser under Michael Flynn. Her former boss resigned last February for lying to the White House about conversations he had with Russian officials. McFarland left her post in May, just as the investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election started heating up.
