The chairman of the US Department of Defense's Defense Innovation Advisory Board made a large contribution to a liberal Super PAC, New York Times correspondent Ken Vogel reported Friday.


Eric Schmidt, the former CEO of Google, donated $750,000 to Future Forward USA Action, according to FEC reports.

As Vogel noted, the group produced an ad linking Trump to white supremacist and Russian ruler Vladimir Putin.
