#NXIVM President Nancy Salzman pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of racketeering conspiracy, making her the first person convicted in the Justice Department's criminal prosecution of the Colonie-based organization's leaders.
On February 28, during the last status conference before Judge Garaufis, Assistant US Attorney Moira Penza told the Court there would be a superseding indictment coming in the next few weeks...
-Fist, Nancy Salzman, partner-in-crime in #NXIVM/ESP criminal enterprise, was going to plead guilty.

-Next, filing by the prosecution exposes evidence that it plans to introduce...in support of its pending motion to admit “certain racketeering evidence”

Good thread and linked article on #NXIVM case. 👇🏼
WOW. Article from 2010:
A major critic of (#NXIVM) that litigants describe as a cult is blasting Attorney General Andrew @NYGovCuomo for disregarding warnings re: alleged misdeeds + suspicious activities, such as members acquiring and instructing a child.
O'Hara, who worked for #NXIVM, implies that @NYGovCuomo , who has received considerable campaign donations from the Bronfman family, is not eager to investigate for political reasons. "I understand why anyone who is running for office would be reluctant to investigate..."
2007 article
Executives + top associates of #NXIVM group...donated $29,900 to @HillaryClinton’s (2008) presidential campaign...

At least 3 of them, Nancy Salzman + the Bronfman sisters, are members of the @ClintonGlobal Initiative.

Thick as thieves...

🚨🚨#NXIVM superceding indictment incoming🚨🚨
Nancy Salzman has been removed as a defendant now that she’s pled guilty.

Addition of charges against #Nxivm leader Keith Raniere for sexual exploitation of a child and child pornography.

Here are the new counts, as spelled out in the indictment…

#NXIVM superceding indictment text 👇🏼
If you are following the #NXIVM story and are NOT yet following @realJeffreyP you are making a big mistake! Major ex power player with much insider info he has been sharing for months now.
Summary of the new charges:
• Raniere, Mack, Bronfman, and Lauren charged with one count of Racketeering;
• Raniere charged with 2 counts of Sexual Exploitation of a Child
• Raniere charged with 1 count of Possession of Child Pornography
Now alleged that Raniere, known as 'Vanguard' or 'Master' within the secretive group, coerced underage girls to participate in porn photoshoots for more than 10 years. Then kept files with sexually explicit images + stored them on a hard drive.
💣Nancy Salzman got to read her allocution into the record:

THE DEFENDANT: Judge Garaufis, want you to know that I am pleading guilty because I am, in fact, guilty. It has taken me some time and some soul searching to come to this place...


"In 441 words, Salzman has admitted to being involved in a Racketeering Conspiracy – and to participating in two racketeering acts.

And just like that, Salzman went from being a Prefect to being a felon."
💣The prosecution is in plea deal discussions with 3 other defendants.💣

2/3 of the original defendants will have chosen to plead guilty to at least 1 felony charge rather than go to trial.

When does a bird sing? 🤔


Co-conspirator charged in @MichaelAvenatti case Mark Geragos is also representing Clare Bronfman in the #NXIVM case...

Another plea deal, under seal, in the #NXIVM criminal case.

"Lauren Salzman has decided to plead guilty rather than go to trial in the case of the U.S. v. Raniere Et Al. to one count each of Racketeering and Racketeering Conspiracy."
✅sex trafficking
✅forced labor
✅wire fraud conspiracy
✅human trafficking
✅branding with hot iron
✅money laundering
✅identity theft

Good recap of the #NXIVM criminal conspiracy story events so far.

“I knowingly and intentionally harbored Jane Doe 4, a woman whose identity is known to me, in a room in the home in the Northern District of New York,” said Lauren Salzman to Brooklyn federal court Judge Nicholas Garaufis last week."
"Allison Mack became so involved, federal prosecutors said, that she began recruiting other women into a secret sect within Nxivm in which women were branded with Mr. Raniere’s initials and were forced to have sex with him."
"Mack pleaded guilty today before Judge Garaufis to Counts 1 and 2 of the second superseding indictment: Racketeering and Racketeering Conspiracy.

With each felony count comes a possible 20-year maximum sentence. There is no minimum sentence."

"Order by Magistrate Judge Vera Scanlon that was originally filed “Under Seal” – but that has was released earlier today in redacted form – underscores that Clare Bronfman had, in fact, 👉become the CEO of NXIVM by late 2017."👈

Guilty pleas of Bronfman and Russell, would leave #NXIVM co-founder Keith Raniere as the only defendant who would stand trial in the Justice Department's racketeering and conspiracy case against six of the secretive organization's leaders and confidantes.
...trove of new evidence that top #NXIVM members took part in an illegal campaign contribution scheme to a presidential primary campaign...

...whistleblower Frank Parlato confirmed to @EpochTimes that scheme was aiding Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign.

Recent @WeAreChangeNYC video on #NXIVM cult criminal conspiracy case. Great recap for newcomers to this story and analysis where this case could lead. BIG connections.

Raniere will be the sole defendant...likely all 5 former co-defendants, Clare & Kathy Bronfman, Allison Mack, Lauren + Nancy Salzman, will be poised to testify against man that only little more than a year ago they were pledging undying loyalty...
5 days until the start of Keith Raniere's trial in the "biggest cult case in decades"
Raniere begins trial 5/7 on charges:
✅forced labor
✅sex trafficking
✅sexual exploitation of a child
✅wire fraud
✅violations of federal anti-✅racketeering law.
"women served as slaves, branded with his initials, forced to have sex with him."
"Of the six NXIVM defendants named in a superseding indictment last year, all but the group’s leader have since pleaded guilty to an array of charges including forced labor, and extortion. Raniere will now face a jury by himself."
#NXIVM #KeithRaniere
#NXIVM trial is underway.
"The defendant took advantage of these young women, emotionally and sexually...pretended to be a guru but...committed crimes of extortion, forced labor, sex trafficking, fraud...child pornography, and that’s why we are here."
Keith Raniere defense's opening statement.
...references to Atticus Finch, Augustus Möbius, gold medal skiers, Abraham & Isaac, Winston Churchill...

The defense's position seems so weak that this long winded opening is the best they can provide.
"Sylvie," had been involved in the group for around 13 years for self-help seminars - only to be later invited to join a secretive sorority within the organization known as "Dominus Obsequious Sororium" (DOS) - Latin for "master over the slave women."
"#NXIVM whistleblower Frank Parlato sat down with Big League Politics' Patrick Howley last Sunday to discuss the trial, where he describes Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) as a "friendly" ally as well as the copious Clinton connections." - @zerohedge
