President-elect Donald Trump's White House has grown by two people. Meet Trump's new deputy national security adviser, KT McFarland, and his new White House counsel, Don McGahn.

McFarland will be serving under Trump's national security adviser, Michael Flynn, who tweeted out his congratulations.

And Trump's new White House counsel is a lawyer and a former chair of the Federal Election Commission. McGahn served as a legal adviser to Trump during his presidential campaign.

Trump's team notes McGahn specializes in government ethics, which could be useful for untangling the potential conflicts between Trump's sprawling business interests and his administration.
