A White House official said Mr Harward cited family and financial commitments, but US media said the sticking point was he wanted to bring in his own team.
Former officials who worked with Harward considered his amiable temperament, bureaucratic competence and lack of discernible ideology a notable contrast to Flynn. They said an early test for Harward would have been restoring the primacy of the National Security Council (NSC), the traditional interagency forum for foreign and security policymaking. Under Flynn, the NSC had been challenged by competing bodies, particularly one helmed by Steve Bannon, Trump’s chief strategist and a white nationalist.
One of the rumored replacements for Flynn is the former CIA director and retired four star general David Petraeus, a man far more amenable to the intelligence agencies than Flynn.
But Petraeus resigned as director of the CIA in 2012 and is still on probation after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor violation of mishandling classified information, which he provided to his biographer – a woman he was having an affair with.
The other name floated is Keith Kellogg, the acting national security adviser.

He kinda shoved it up his own. Everyone knows he's a pathological liar and through a temper tantrum at the media to try to divert attention from the growing scandal, that he won't give clear answers about.

Trump is sowing the seeds of his own destruction with his lies. His staff is in chaos and not running like a fine machine at all like he claimed. $h*t sandwich indeed.
But at least they shut Kellyanne up. That's in their favor at least.
