NSC Russia Expert Escorted From White House Under Intelligence Investigation…

CTH held off reporting on this explosive story until we could see if a tell-tale consequence surfaced; perhaps it has.   On Friday the National Security Council senior director for European and Russian affairs, Andrew Peek, was escorted from the White House grounds and is currently under a security investigation.

There are few details about why Peek was physically removed and is under a very serious investigation; however, some of Andrew Peek’s professional background details tell a story.  The connection to Gen. John Allen is a MASSIVE warning flare.

Andrew Peek, the senior director for European and Russian affairs at the National Security Council, has been placed on administrative leave pending a security-related investigation, people familiar with the situation tell Axios.

First the Daily Mail:

[…] Peek had been in the NSC role for just two months, after most recently working as a deputy assistant secretary of state with responsibility for Iran and Iraq.

[…] Peek had been expected to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland next week with Trump and other top aides. However, he is currently on leave pending a security-related investigation, people familiar with the situation told Axios.

[…] Peek served as a U.S. Army intelligence officer who worked under General John Allen in Afghanistan.

[…] Prior to joining the Trump administration, Peek served as a U.S. Army intelligence officer who worked under General John Allen in Afghanistan.

[…] He was also a national security adviser to Senator Gordon Smith, an Oregon Republican, and Senator Mike Johanns, a Nebraska Republican.  (link)

From a Bloomberg article:

[…] Peek previously served as a deputy assistant secretary of State for Iraq and Iran, and he was seen as an ally of Robert O’Brien.

Andrew Peek came from the State Department.  Because the appointment happened in the past two months, it would appear Andrew Peek was recommended by the Dept. of State and accepted for the NSC post by National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien.

Here’s how it looks:  Andrew Peek was a mole.  A resistance spy sent into the Trump administration as part of the allied deep state resistance effort.  Someone caught him attempting to access something, and here’s how CTH can tell.

The biggest flare that identifies Andrew Peek’s ideology is the connection to former U.S. General John Allen.   CTH has tracked Allen for several years; he was used as part of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.  He spoke at the DNC convention for Hillary Clinton.

John Allen was also used, politically, as part of President Obama’s 2014 false narrative around ISIS; giving the illusion of an effort to confront the radical Islamists.  Obama had been holding leverage over John Allen since 2012 [HERE]

Allen, a four-star Marine general, succeeded Petraeus as the top American commander in Afghanistan in July 2011; but General John Allen had a serious zipper problem.  Allen retired in 2012 when his sexual proclivities surfaced.

However, Obama brought him back when he needed a General he could control in 2014.   Allen’s 2012 zipper problem became Obama’s 2014 political leverage to use General Allen as a tool to present the image of Obama’s faux fight against ISIS.

Andrew Peek coming from the stable of John Allen tells us everything we need to know about the ideology of Mr. Peek.  There’s no doubt in my mind that Andrew Peek is therefore an ideological member of the resistance similar to another NSC appointment, Alexander Vindman.

Keep in mind, National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien also comes from inside the Dept of State.   So whether Mike Pompeo and Robert O’Brien set-up Peek as a mole, or whether Peek’s activities were discovered without their foreknowledge is an open question.  However, I find it impossible to believe that NSA Robert O’Brien didn’t know the ideology of Peek prior to the appointment.

Additionally, in the periphery of downstream consequence, and seemingly out of nowhere today, impeachment Lead Manager and HPSCI Chairman Adam Schiff said:

The Intelligence Community is beginning to withhold documents from Congress on the issue of Ukraine. They appear to be succumbing to pressure from the administration. The NSA in particular is withholding what are potentially relevant documents to our oversight.”

Considering the timeline; and considering the topic(s); and considering the ideology; there’s a strong possibility the person on the other end of Peeks’ communication effort was someone in the network of Adam Schiff, perhaps Mary McCord or similar…

                Completely agree Dutchman. I think the whole Ukraine thing was a setup by our VSG and company. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, we took a sharp turn into Ukraine and other foreign corruption/money laundering operations. I think it was our VSGPDJT controlling the narrative, bringing sunlight to all of this. Great negotiators get the other side to request to have it your way (get them talking about what you want to bring to light).

                Pencil neck was just a useful idiot and was played.

                I heard it recently mentioned that one of the FISA warrants against the Trump campaign was all encompassing because it supposedly covered a criminal “enterprise”. We all know that was completely corrupt spying.

                I think the tables turned and our VSGPDJT is lawfully using those same all encompassing FISA warrants against the corrupt criminal “enterprise” that is and has been working against him and his administration. It was Nunes or Rudy who recently mentioned the term “enterprise”.

                This at least explains how/why so many bad actors have been left in place. Is it possible they were left in place because they were being watched?

                  Yes, its POSSIBLE.
                  Its also possible that the system is so corrupt, that our VSG recognises that the system can’t be used, to address the corruption.

                  And so, as he is so adept at, he is working on a different solution; one based on looking at the problem differently the everyone else.

                  To wit; the problem is Power. The evil-doers CRAVE power. And what IS power?

                  The ability to exert influence. And a key part of influence is CREDIBILITY.
                  SO, if you strip these individuals and entities of Credibility, you take away much of their ability to influence, hence their power.

                  And, given that they crave power and influence, forcing them to live without any influence, is a pretty good punishment, as well.

                  We’ll see what happens,…

        I will tell you this is not correct or accurate.

        As we have witnessed it is very easy and it is very fast to select and achieve an interim from just about anyone at anytime from any past.

        how else do you explain the lawfare types working directly and handing with the House Intel Committee….How else do you explain the expeditious fashion that the trump administration attained security clearances for staffers?

        the reality is (I have to hold bag from gagging when I present this information), that the speed and efficiency of beaurocracy in achieving clearances and work within the inner sanctums is driven by political will, who you know, and to what end this person will serve.

        there are..as many are just not staring to grasp FULLY,,,,,two different world of rules.

        the military order of discipline that is exceedingly careful about background checks….and then there is something entirely different in the world where civilians operate in the federal departments.

        I got an interim ONE TIME…and it was for a brief period of time, with an ending date….A situation that demanded I take possession and become a courier for highly classified material…I already had a secret. This was something far more weighty…And mind you, this was just carrying a hard secured case of which I did not have unlock authority…just a sidearm and some hard types that made a hole from point a to point b.

        Now why am I going on and on about this…?

        there is a world of difference about how persons are vetted and how background checks are actually performed in the civilian sector of the federal government.

        think about mcdoucheback at the FBI…making edits to fisa application paperwork..he worked in the friggin COINTEL division in a active surveillance operation of the highest order…you think this guy was properly vetted? Sure..he answered correctly..and noone was probably even interviewed….he was “one of us”…so he was useful…bam…gets a clearance..with a dubious glowing background check I am sure and certain.

        vindmann…how do you explain that? a career military officer who DOES NOT possess the kind of need to know and clearance in his normal military duties…but bam..he gets a position in the NSC as some kind of advisor to the state department…bam..he’s “one of us”..get a clearance to the most priviledged information…foreign policy matters with a country that is literally fighting for its freedom from russian invasion…a MAJOR@!! wtf!

        I am point on, there are two worlds…it’s not the way the normal military would conduct its affairs..unfortunately it seems the military, at least some aspects and persons within it have been willing accomplices to a political coup and have been given access and keys to the kingdom…without the slightest hard lines of consideration that would normally be required to achieve that level of access.

        think about the FBI private contractors..hundreds and hundreds of them, with the most powerful tools of surveillance at their command….given clearance, simply because of capability and skills….”he’s one of us..he will do the dirty work”..bam..gets a clearance!

        look at Richmann ..the so-called friendly ghost of Comey…GIven a special position (can’t think of the damned title, but I digress)…you think he was cleared properly? nope..he was just useful and powerful “he’s one of us”…so he gets the keys and the clearance…bam…just like that.

        you think any of these people are going to get squeezed for playing fast and loss with the nation’s top secrets….?

        I could go on and on…but I think you understand the concerns I have.

        See when RADM Rogers was talking about the problem of 17/18 clauses..he wasn’t ONLY referring to queries..he was talking about compartmentalization…that the genie had left the bottle..that was his gift ..that was his patriotic duty….that was his responsibility to report. He audited the entire mess and came up with nuts….nuts….flagrant abuses across the board…the surveillance powers have been weaponized…the administrative ease in which people reprobates were given top access to these tools with no oversight and restrictions is one of the most existential threat to this country..and it will only get worse, unless there are swift and harsh penalties for committing these politically motivated crimes to manufacture a coup against the PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES>

      remember: wikileaks was a threat to the MSM, because it set a gold standard that humiliated the MSM…the MSM for decades maintained the narratives and occupied all the oxygen.

      then comes along the warrior hackers who will publish perfectly falsifiable direct facts and materials that stun the world! STUN THE WORLD.

      Now, many people have some issues with Assange…he is a person..wikileaks, what IT stands for..what is accomplishes is something that all freedom loving patriots should protect. Assange was the messenger. He pulled the curtain back..and it was ugly!

      When your government cannot be honest..of what value in selecting them to represent you? What recourse do you possess to make them accountable? How do you prevent them from abuses that rewards only sick, profiteers and self interest? YOU STEAL THEIR SECRETS! That’s how it’s done. And you publish them! That is the true responsibility of any truly free press …it is fundamental to the very notion of what makes the United States a civil and secure society. I am agnostic to assange’s personal ambitiions….An ego of galactic proportions…I suppose one has to have some very big balls to take on the US and tell it’s truths…these are truths that benefit you and me..and condemn the dishonest reckless self serving abusers who hide behind secrecy laws.

      This will happen again..the abuses.they are occuring now! We need wikileaks…wilileaks being those investigators who are willing to provoke disobedience to destroy the fake wall of secrecy that hides the miserable abominations that are ruining this country.

      SD reminds me of wikileaks in this regard..his tireless effort to laser focus on the mission and to establish credibility about what is happening behind the curtains of secrecy and shady dealings.

      We need more people like SD. We are Americans…It’s out civic duty to enforce justice…and information is the powerful sanitation to the dirty filth of these reprobates.

      This is the challenge. This is the mission. This is OUR HOUR. Don’t let it slip. That was the message that assange carried. With evidence to back it up. He did it with a FLEET of skilful silent warriors who operated like a find tuned machine.

      This is what SD needs to take into consideration…the maximum impact of truth is directly proportional to the amount of publicity it achieves. What I am saying, is that it would be enormously powerful to make the material we have right here at this website, and magnify it to a larger platform and reach the larger society. It will however take courage..if assange is a useful example…a person daring to take the truth and publish it…is going to have a rather unpleasant long term experience. But that is what it takes. Freedom is not free.

      It never has been.. Who will be that dark knight. Who will come forth and get this material to every home and every computer and every news outlet? who?

      if that isn’t possible…who do we wreck the existing structure and burn it to the ground?

        zekness…this is why many of us for years, have only understood that when SD posts anything…it is up to his readers to take that post and add research tentacles to it. If you notice in this morning’s Presidential thread, many of us gathered bits and pieces of background regarding Andrew Peek. Now, SD already has an enormous database…however one new tidbit of info from any Treeper can help to connect the dots. And, thus, help SD.

        Unfortunately, new members of CTH are not as serious to the cause of the original core. Rather than solely adding sarcasm, better time would be spent supporting research. If SD provides a post, kick out and dive into minutiae for further understanding. Then, post it.

        This is still in the guidelines, and yes it is always fun to see clever comments…just use those as additions to helpful research with links and background information.

        Then, when SD posts something like this, send out in bulk email, send to other blogs as tips and post online everywhere you can.

Every government entity that uses secure “red line” communications must follow TEMPEST regulations, except Hillary.

        Trump can select anyone to be the NSA. No approval required and the Flynn example is NOT relevant.

        It was well known Flynn had enemies in the Obama Administration who would undermine him. Obama even told Trump straight up ‘Don’t pick Flynn’ – that’s a very good forewarning of the type of treatment Flynn would get – which was borne out by what happened.

        If O’Brien is no good Trump has only himself to blame.

      Graham is deep state. Do you really want Pompeo to give the enemy a heads up to what Guiliani has dug up on Ukraine? What, from his previous actions, makes you believe Graham would do anything but bury any information detrimental to the deep state? Info that may be detrimental to his own previous coupling, along with the traitor McStain, to the corruption in Ukraine.

      Seriously, infering that Pompeo is a traitor from this guy getting the boot, is disingenuous. Intellectually dishonest. From the little information available, it is as likely that Pompeo and Obrien uncovered the mole and had him fired as it is that they placed the mole for nefarious purposes.

      I know people are impatient for Justice. And I know that “trust the plan” has become a derisive meme, but there is a plan. PDJT isnt just wavering in the wind, without direction. Trust Trump.

    […]
    At some point this fall, voters will start to imagine these candidates not just running for president but actually being president, sitting in the Oval Office making crucial decisions about national security–that’s when they get serious. So let’s jump the gun, put Donald in that office for a minute, and ask what would Trump’s foreign policy look like?
    No other candidate has even a remotely similar foreign policy. It is Trump Global, trademarked under a copyright – and that is what should scare us. Diplomacy and the American interest are fundamentally not dependent on individuals, however clever and charming they are. Our interests, like those of many countries, are mostly unchanging. That’s why Barack Obama’s foreign policy looks so similar to George W. Bush’s – and in certain areas, more Bush than Bush.”

    Other than John Allen’s “Zipper Problem” what shortcomings did he have as a military leader? What were his political leanings BEFORE his “Horizontal Activities” were leveraged against him?

    If John Allen had to be blackmailed/coerced into supporting Obama’s policies, what does that say about John Allen, and the people who worked for him? Was Allen ALREADY a Leftist ideologue -OR- Was someone inside (,Peek?) intentionally enabling “Risky Behavior” on the General’s part so that he would be entrapped, and vulnerable?

      -here is one who did NOT adhere to general policy nor standards on personal conduct.
      -here is one who knew he was being leveraged (a 4 star had to know, or at least strongly suspect) and he was fine with it.
      -here is one who held in disregard prohibitions on conflicts of interest.
      -here is one who did not subject himself to UCMJ.
      -here is is one who put personal career above oath.

      Most telling – the above is bad enough – is he willingly ‘rode along’, i.e. ‘conspired with’ others to avoid resolution, reassignment, or disqualification. That an ‘other’ may have been the President is immaterial. A military officer shall hold loyalty to country above that to any person even a superior.

      I think STJ should hold Allen subject to Article 2 UMCJ.

    According to his LinkedIn profile, Peek worked on Trump’s presidential transition team for the State Department from October 2016 to January 2017 and was a columnist for the New York Daily News and the New York Observer, a news outlet then owned by Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, who now serves as a top White House aide. He is currently completing his doctorate at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and received a masters degree from Harvard University.

    Trump as Commander in Chief? Tune in for a Foreign Policy Reality Show
    By Andrew L. Peek, The Fiscal Times

    August 20, 2015

    ‘I have been refusing to write about Donald Trump, because – let us be frank – that is exactly what he wants us to do. He will certainly not be President. He is riding high in the polls of August, our political silly season, just like Michelle Bachmann or Herman Cain were back in 2011.

So let’s jump the gun, put Donald in that office for a minute, and ask what would Trump’s foreign policy look like?

    There’s actually a lot to be said for him as Commander in Chief. He’s knowledgeable about the world, obviously bright, sophisticated beneath the spray-on populism, and experienced in high-stakes negotiations with foreign potentates. He also has an ability to speak plainly, which is critical in rallying American support behind a President’s foreign policy.

    Woodrow Wilson’s foreign policy collapsed because the American id never bought into it; the people were unenthusiastic about their new burdens and Wilson became shrill trying to convince them. Richard Nixon’s foreign policy was more successful, though ultimately détente and its managed hostilities with the Soviet Union was too removed from the basic traditions of America’s world-view to survive. Voters never really cottoned to either.

    You have to read the rest of his ‘opinion’ 👇
