Clinton Foundation Buys $137 Million in Illegal Arms for Post Election-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:
The Clinton Foundation has purchased $137 million in arms and ammunition that will be delivered after the 2016 general election.
The Truth:
Reports that the Clinton Foundation has been working with the CIA to smuggle $137 million in illegal arms and ammunition into the U.S. were started by a fakenews website.
The story appeared at What Does It Mean, a self-described alternative news site that focuses on conspiracy theories, under the headline, “Russia Asks CIA: Why Did Hillary Clinton Just Buy $137 Million Worth of Illegal Arms.”
It begins:

A stunning Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today reveals that the Security Council (SC), this morning, authorized the sending to the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of an emergency communiqué requesting an immediate explanation as to why Hillary Clinton’s money laundering organization, known as the Clinton Foundation, this past week, purchased over $137 million of illegal arms and ammunition—and whose destination is to be the United States, with delivery being marked as “mid-November 2016”.

What Does It Mean regularly publishes pro-Russia, anti-Democratic opinion pieces and fake news reports that are sometimes mistaken for factual reporting. However, the site’s “About Us” page explains that stories are presented “as is” with no claim to truth or accuracy:
This site is provided “as is” without warranty of any kind, either expressed or implied. You should not assume that this site is error-free or that it will be suitable for the particular purpose which you have in mind when using it.
Aside from the site’s lack of credibility, there’s no link to the SVR report or any proof that it actually exists. Given all that, we’re calling this one “fiction.”


A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
