While serving as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton selected major political donor to serve on a key State Department intelligence board in 2011. According to released emails, Clinton appointed her donor him not despite having no clear background in the area. CNN:
Rajiv Fernando has donated $9,400 to Clinton’s two White House bids…
Fernando, a Chicago securities trader, has also been a prolific donor to the Clinton Foundation, giving at least $1 million to the organization, according to its website.
In July 2011, Fernando was appointed to a seat on the International Security Advisory Board (ISAB), a panel filled with top-level foreign policy advisers and security experts…
As a member of the top-level group, Fernando was granted a Top Secret security clearance and given access to highly sensitive information.
Fernando, professional State Department staff noted, seemed an awkward selection for the group and spurred concern when an ABC News reporter inquired about him in 2011.
