Clinton Donor Promised To Make Her 'Look Good' If Appointed To National Security Board

Matt Vespa,

So, remember when ABC News released the emails detailing the inner freak out at the State Department over media inquires as to why a top-level Clinton donor, Rajiv K. Fernando, was placed on the International Security Advisory Board, despite him having zero experience in the area? Well, it appears he wanted that appointment to further polish the image of Hillary Clinton.
Fernando, who was appointed to ISAB in July of 2011, is a leader in the field of computer-generated stock trading (high frequency trading), according to ABC News. ...
According to the website, ISAB offers the State Department “independent insight and advice on all aspects of arms control, disarmament, nonproliferation, international security, and related aspects of public diplomacy.” This is the board Clinton seems to have thought was okay to offer some sort of payback to a top donor.
