In the White House, she will re­port to re­tired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, whom Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump has named his Na­tional Se­cu­rity Ad­viser.

As a re­sult of the ap­point­ment, Ms. Crow­ley will be leav­ing her po­si­tions at The Times and with Fox News. Ms. Crow­ley also served as for­eign pol­icy ad­viser for for­mer Pres­i­dent Nixon in the 1990s.
