During the deposition of Susan Dones, NXIVM attorney questioned her for hours.
When Dones said she believed NXIVM officials regularly lie, Crockett pursued that line of questioning.
Crockett Q: What do you think is the biggest lie or whopper that NXIVM’s ever told you?
Dones A: … about Barbara Bouchey being a full suppressive, based on the fact that they teach a module based on that, and telling me that she’s crazy, to influence how I would be around her, and I think that was used … to keep me …. from ever believing anything that she ever said. I also think that how they’ve lied about other people who have left — everybody that’s left, it’s always been their fault and nothing within the leadership’s fault. I think them covering up the fact that Keith behaves in certain ways that people find morally and ethically not acceptable are big lies that they’ve told. I think that Nancy lying, or whoever did to the Washington State Department of Revenue, about licensing their program to third-party people … there’s a cycle of abuse that takes place.
Q: So who told you the whopper about Barbara Bouchey being a suppressive?
A: Nancy Salzman. …. I think for the leader, the president of a company, to go around and tell people that about other people when they teach that particular module is a setup … why would somebody that runs a company based on human potential and human behavior that teaches an entire two-hour module on (what) they call “the fall” that deals with the downfall of somebody who’s suppressive go around and speak that to anybody in their company about that?
