Timeline of Robert C. O’Brien


O’Brien was named to the White House Coronavirus Task Force when it was established on January 29, 2020. He took a low profile in responding to the pandemic.


O’Brien took office as the 28th United States National Security Advisor on September 18, 2019. President Trump appointed O’Brien to succeed John Bolton, who resigned earlier that month. A few days later, O’Brien announced that Matthew Pottinger would become the deputy national security advisor, replacing Charles Kupperman in that role. O’Brien was seen as a traditional foreign policy conservative rather than a firebrand.

In December 2019, O’Brien defended Trump’s decision to pardon Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, a convicted war criminal who was alleged by multiple fellow Navy SEALs of shooting innocent civilians and of murdering a sedated injured teenage ISIS fighter.


From May 25, 2018 to October 3, 2019, O’Brien served as the Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs. He was given the rank of ambassador one year after his appointment. He attended the trial of the American rapper ASAP Rocky in Stockholm, Sweden and told reporters “The president sent me here, so it’s totally appropriate. I also help free people that are held by governments, so unjustly detained Americans.” O’Brien had written the Swedish government warning of “negative consequences” if the case was not resolved. He “helped secure the 2018 release of American pastor Andrew Brunson, whose two-year imprisonment in Turkey heightened tensions between Washington and Ankara.” O’Brien was also involved in obtaining the release of Danny Burch, an American oil worker held in Yemen for a year, and who ultimately received an Oval Office meeting with President Trump.


In 2017, O’Brien was under consideration by the Donald Trump administration to serve as Secretary of the Navy. The Orange County Register editorial board endorsed O’Brien to serve in this position, stating, “He is the ideal candidate to ensure American global dominance continues—in a way that fits both the present national mood and our enduring national values.”


O’Brien was a founding partner, along with former federal judge Stephen Larson, of the Los Angeles boutique law firm Larson O’Brien LLP, which they established in January 2016. O’Brien retired from the firm when he was appointed National Security Advisor.

O’Brien is the author of the 2016 book While America Slept: Restoring American Leadership to a World in Crisis. Writing in Foreign Policy, Daniel Runde said, “While America Slept is the 2016 equivalent of Richard Nixon’s The Real War.” A former colleague from the George W. Bush administration, Runde summarized O’Brien’s views as follows:


Later, in May 2015, he became an adviser on foreign policy and national security affairs for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s presidential campaign. After Walker left the race, O’Brien advised Ted Cruz’s campaign. During the time he advised Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign, he claimed: “It’s clear that Vladimir Putin just doesn’t like [Hillary Clinton], and is going to do what he can to help Donald Trump.”

Raised a Catholic, O’Brien converted to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in his twenties. He is married to Lo-Mari O’Brien, and the couple raised three children: Margaret, Robert and Lauren. His son Robert died in an accidental drowning in 2015.


O’Brien was a civilian observer for the Pacific Council on International Policy at the pre-trial hearings for alleged September 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, in June 2014. He served on the International Republican Institute’s delegations observing the Republic of Georgia’s 2013 presidential election and Ukraine’s 2014 parliamentary election.

When many other intelligence officials who had been involved in briefing Trump on national security characterized Trump as inattentive, O’Brien disputed the characterization, saying Trump was “laser-focused on the issues at hand and asks probing questions throughout the briefings — it reminds me of appearing before a well-prepared appellate judge and defending the case.”


In October 2011, O’Brien was named to Mitt Romney’s advisory team as Co-Chair of the International Organizations Work Group.


On July 31, 2008, President Bush announced his intention to appoint O’Brien to serve in his administration as a member of the Cultural Property Advisory Committee, an advisory committee on issues involving antiquities and cultural matters, for the remainder of a three-year term which expired on April 25, 2011.


O’Brien served as Co-Chairman of the U.S. Department of State’s Public-Private Partnership for Justice Reform in Afghanistan, launched in December 2007, which “promoted the rule of law” in Afghanistan by training judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys. He continued this role during the first term of the Obama administration.


O’Brien was nominated by President George W. Bush as the U.S. Alternate Representative to the 60th session of the United Nations General Assembly during 2005–06. He addressed the General Assembly on the question of Palestine, and represented the United States in the General Assembly’s Sixth Committee, which considered the Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism.


From 1996 to 1998, O’Brien was a legal officer with the United Nations Compensation Commission in Geneva, Switzerland, which reviewed and processed claims resulting from Iraq’s 1990–91 invasion and occupation of Kuwait. The amounts of compensation ranged into hundreds of millions of dollars, and were sourced from a 30% take from Iraq’s oil revenues.


O’Brien was born in Los Angeles and raised in Santa Rosa, California, where he attended Cardinal Newman High School. He received a B.A. in political science from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1988, and a J.D. from the UC Berkeley School of Law in 1991. He won a Rotary scholarship to study at the University of the Free State in South Africa in 1987.


Robert Charles O’Brien Jr. (born June 18, 1966) is an American lawyer who is currently serving as the 28th United States National Security Advisor. He is fourth person to hold that position during the presidency of Donald Trump.
