During Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, a stock trader and major Clinton Foundation donor was assigned to a government intelligence advisory board despite no evident qualifications for the job, according to newly released State Department emails.
ABC News reported that Rajiv Fernando, who specialized in electronic investing, sat on the International Security Advisory Board to help advise Clinton on nuclear weapons issues while she served as secretary of state.
The panel is composed primarily of nuclear scientists, security experts, and former members of Congress, raising questions from ABC News in 2012 over Fernando’s lack of experience in the field.
The newly released messages show that, when contacted by ABC, officials who worked on the advisory board conveyed confusion about Fernando’s appointment in internal emails sent to State Department colleagues.
