    After google, there are half a dozen right wing sites carrying this story, all of them quoting each other and none with a verifiable credible source of their own. Mark this up as right wing circle jerk unverified bullshit with no credible source...dismissed.

    Here's yet another fake Clinton-Baltimore story.

    Fake news: Clinton Foundation has no ships, didn’t smuggle refugees
    By Joshua Gillin on Friday, May 12th, 2017 at 4:46 p.m.

    Fake news again targeted the Clinton Foundation with a story that falsely said a ship owned by the nonprofit was caught smuggling hundreds of people into the United States.

    "Clinton Foundation Cargo Ship Raided At Port Of Baltimore Reveals Sick Secret," read the headline on a May 11, 2017, post on DailyUsaUpdate.com, a site we know traffics in bogus news articles.

    The secret, according to the story, was that 460 undocumented "refugees from places like Yemen and Syria" were hidden in 14 shipping containers aboard a ship called the Chelsea.

    The story said some refugees told authorities they had paid $40,000 for passage to the United States. Some of the other containers, the post claimed, carried other contraband, like illegal fruit and several kinds of drugs.

    The article was flagged by Facebook users, as part of the social media site’s efforts to cut down on fake posts being shared in news feeds. It has appeared on other sites, as well.

    The Clinton Foundation was recently the subject of fake news posts that falsely said Chelsea Clinton had been charged with fraud for essentially stealing from the nonprofit, which was shut down.

    The MSM gives them a pass. You can stomp the ground all you want, but unless you can show where the info is wrong it stands as correct.

    That has ZERO to do with this thread. That story you quote originated on a parody site. From your own link:

    This particular fake story, like so many others, originated at TheLastLineOfDefense.org, a parody website that has been the source of several fake news stories that we’ve previously checked. This story originally appeared on May 11.
    ZERO to do with the OP.

    Yes, I know. And?

    Yes, that was what Politifact showed. It came from a blog that the link no longer supports.

    TheLastLineOfDefense.org, a parody website that has been the source of several fake news stories that we’ve previously checked. This story originally appeared on May 11.

    And?

    Yes, I know From your own link:
    I responded to PE's post which contained the link, but whatever, and?


    ZERO to do with the OP.
    And? PE was making a point about how fake news is distributed.

    You are the one making the claim, you prove it. How about a credible news outlet?
