British intelligence seizing a Clinton Foundation warehouse and $400 million in cash is fake news. There is no truth to a report that a warehouse rented by Bill and Hillary Clinton’s foundation was recently seized by British intelligence and discovered to hold $400 million in cash. The Clintons and their foundation have been the subject of many fake news, tweets, photographs and memes.
Where did this fake news originate? Reagan Was Right published the fake news article reporting that the Clinton Foundation’s warehouse rented in the United Kingdom was seized by MI6, the U.K.’s Secret Intelligence Service, and discovered to hold a large amount of cash. You can read it below.
The Clinton Foundation is once again trying to distance itself from a scandal surrounding something they’re involved in. This time, the warehouse they use in the UK to store food and toiletries to make ready for shipping to Africa and Indonesia was raided by MI6.
The warehouse, which is leased by the Foundation and one other tenant, is owned by a man known for shady arms deals and exploiting cheap Asian labor for counterfeit goods. The Brits took down his office and storage space, finding 400 Million in US Dollars. Maleek Bin Shalakta has been on the UK terrorist watch list for some time.
However, there is no truth to the story. What is the problem with the story to make it false? While the story says “Maleek Bin Shalakta” owns the warehouse where the cash was seized, FactCheck.org reported that there are no results for anyone by that name, and nobody by that name is on the U.K. government’s list of people targeted for sanctions due to suspected involvement in terrorist activity.
The fake news references a trucking company that operates in France, Germany and “Latkavia.” However, there is no country called “Latkavia.” Additionally, the photograph used in the fake news can be originally found here. The photo is actually of British police officers evicting a group of people living in recreational vehicles parked at a warehouse on the outskirts of London last summer.
Here are some examples of people sharing the fake news on social media.

Finally and most importantly, Reagan Was Right carries the following disclaimer:
Before you complain and decide satire is synonymous with “comedy”:
The use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.
The Clinton Foundation builds partnerships of great purpose between businesses, governments, NGOs, and individuals to work faster, better, and leaner; to find solutions that last; and to transform lives and communities from what they are today to what they can be, tomorrow.
