State Department Appoints Clinton Donor as Email Transparency ‘Czar’


Department of State spokesman John Kirby said it's "not relevant" that John Kerry appointed a Hillary Clinton campaign donor as the new email "transparency czar," in response to criticism Wednesday.

Kerry appointed Janice Jacobs to coordinate the release of Clinton's emails in an effort to be more transparent, but did not disclose that Jacobs recently made a maximum contribution to Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign, reported The Wall Street Journal.

"I would say we didn't talk about it when we announced her yesterday because it's not relevant," Kirby said on Fox and Friends, in response to criticism over the move. "There's no prohibition against doing that kind of thing. She's the right person for this job because of the experience she has leading large organizations and enacting reform and change."

Jacobs is a career diplomat who has worked in for Republican and Democrat administrations. She donated $2,700 to Clinton's campaign June 22.

Fox and Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade pressed Kirby: "But if she put $2700 to make sure someone becomes president, and she has something in her hand to prevent them from becoming president, it's hard for people to believe she'll approach this in a balanced and judicious way."

"I think if you look at her career over so many decades, in Republican and Democrat administrations, you'll see she's balanced," Kirby replied.

"How much money did she give George Bush?" Kilmeade asked.

"I don't have that kind of information, and again, it's not relevant," Kirby replied.
