The International Security Advisory Board is described by the State Department as providing it “with independent insight and advice on all aspects of arms control, disarmament, nonproliferation, international security, and related aspects of public diplomacy.”
This is nuclear weapons policy. So what qualifications did Chicago securities trader and Democratic donor Rajiv Fernando have to serve on this policy board? It’s a question many are trying to get Hillary Clinton to answer, and rightly so.
Citizens United sued in federal court last week to compel the State Department to produce detailed records connected to Fernando’s appointment to the board, generally composed of former members of Congress, scientists and security experts familiar with intelligence matters.
