  • Why Did This Happen?

    The top White House official responsible for Russia and Europe has been put on administrative leave indefinitely amid a security-related investigation, two U.S. officials and a former U.S. official tell NBC News.

    Andrew Peek, who took over the Russia portfolio at the White House National Security Council in November, had been scheduled to join President Donald Trump at the Davos Forum this week before he was abruptly put on leave, one of the officials said. The officials declined to specify the nature of the investigation.

    Peek did not respond to a request for comment Sunday. A National Security Council spokesman declined to comment on his status, which was earlier reported by Axios.

    "We do not discuss personnel matters," the NSC spokesman said.
