The disappearance of a Naval Intelligence Officer claiming a pro-American Venezuelan politician is a major threat to the U.S, brings in our team when they realize he may be targeting the politician for assassination.
The officer, Dennis Chambers, has all the security details for the Venezuelan politician, Gutierrez's, arrival in L.A. for his one day fundraising event.
Chambers superior notes that using HiPs, he was a believer that Gutierrez was masking his hatred for America and would be a major threat.
Kensi and Deeks go to Chambers' ex-wife's home to inform her of his disappearance and are almost run down by a pick-up truck that matches the description of a truck that picked up the day laborer who last met with Chambers and then was found murdered.
The evidence is pointing at Chambers being an assassin until they find he was kidnapped by members of Gutierrez's own security team.
They intended to make Chambers the patsy, framing him for the assassination.
Callen and the team go undercover at the fundraising event to catch the would-be-assassins before they strike. The use Chambers as bait in order to smoke them out.
