A major donor to the Clinton Foundation and Democratic Party fundraiser who was named to the membership rolls of a sensitive government advisory board left even fellow board members puzzled, primarily because they couldn’t figure out why someone of his non-intelligence background would have been named to the panel in the first place, newly released emails from the State Department revealed.
 The reason staffers seemed so puzzled, in part, was that the appointee, Rajiv Fernando, apparently had absolutely no experience in the field of government intelligence, ABC News reported, citing emails that showed how Hillary Clinton’s cronies, when questioned about his appointment, sought to “protect the name” of their boss by “stall[ing]” the reporter who sought answers.

Two days after the press inquiry from ABC came, Fernando resigned from the board.
