Andrew Peek, the head of European and Russian affairs at the National Security Council, has left his post three months after he started, people familiar with the situation told Bloomberg Saturday evening.
Sources told the publication that Peek was escorted from the White House Friday.
Earlier on Saturday, Axios reported that he had been placed on administrative leave pending a security-related investigation.
Peek joined the NSC in November, coming over from the State Department where he was a deputy assistant secretary.
Peek’s two predecessors, Tim Morrison and Fiona Hill both testified during the House’s impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
Peek’s departure is the third time in less than a year that the position has been vacant.
