Matt Lauer, once listed as a member of the Clinton Global Initiative, will moderate the first joint public appearance from Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

The Clinton Global Initiative, one chapter of the scandal-plagued Clinton Foundation, listed Lauer as a “notable member” just years ago. NBC’s press release does not disclose this fact.

From NBC:

“TODAY” co-anchor Matt Lauer will moderate the first-ever Commander-in-Chief Forum on Wednesday, September 7, presented by NBC News and MSNBC with the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.

During this one-hour forum live from the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City, both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will be on stage back-to-back taking questions on national security, military affairs and veterans issues from NBC News and an audience comprised mainly of military veterans and active service members.
