Presidential Covert Joint Task Force was an illegal joint task force assembled by former President Claire Haas and CIA director Matthew Keyes in response to the dissemination of America's intelligence secrets via a hard drive uploaded to the internet by Lydia Hall during the conclusion of the 2018 Hostage Crisis in New York. The group is led by Clay Haas who is a renowned political advisory strategist. During the occasional meetings, the group would rendezvous at a top-secret bunker located at Camp Peary.
After the collaborators gathered details about the task force, they leak the information to the public, putting the presidency of Claire Haas at risk. Sometime later, the task force was permanently disbanded after Claire resigned from her presidency.
The mission of the designated task force was to identify The Collaborators, a shadow group that were affiliated with the AIC, who were initially planning to start a hostage crisis at the 2018 G-20 summit in New York. Some of the collaborators have already accessed the cache that was uploaded by Lydia Hall. Former President Claire Haas mentioned that the collaborators all fall under one of the key eight “pillars”. In addition, she mentioned that the members want to yield a terrorist act to gain control and influence within the following areas; finance, law, logistics, government, technology, ideology, defense and media.
