CHICAGO - The day before the Orlando shooting, news broke about the founder of a Chicago trading company that was mysteriously appointed to serve on the International Security Advisory Board in 2011.
The assignment gave Rajiv Fernando - CEO of Chopper Trading - top secret access.
Fernando was found to have been a fundraiser for the Clinton Global Initiative and for candidate Hillary Clinton - a topic Donald Trump brought up in his speech Wednesday afternoon about Hillary Clinton's alleged corruption.
In his speech, Trump mentioned Fernando, though not by name, saying Clinton appointed a top donor to a national security board with top secret access. “Even though he had no national security credentials, although he did make a very large campaign contribution,” Trump said.
But Trump isn't the first to have raised questions about the appointment.
