19. how about this from CNN then

http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/10/politics/hillary-clinton-donor-rajiv-fernando/index.html

A man who is a commodity trader and who gave the Clinton Foundation 1 million dollars was posted by Mrs. Clinton " to a seat on the International Security Advisory Board (ISAB), a panel filled with top-level foreign policy advisers and security experts. Former Democratic presidential candidate Gary Hart chairs the current panel, which includes retired generals, the former chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and other high-ranking national security experts. As a member of the top-level group, Fernando was granted a Top Secret security clearance and given access to highly sensitive information.

"He was a donor, a recent donor to Hillary Clinton's campaign and also gave as much as $250,000 to his foundation," presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump said Friday. "They all looked, they said 'Where did this guy come from?' He made a contribution of $250,000 all of a sudden he's on this very important, vital board. This position dealt with tactical nuclear weapons and had Top Secret clearance and he knew nothing about it."

This board advises on nuclear weapons etc and this commodity trader donor had ZIP knowledge. Apparently he had the money and that appears to be all it takes to put idiots in highly classified positions where they can play at being important.

Tell me again how this person has the judgment to be President.
