Calling law enforcement: 2009 Video– Either Raniere is a murderer or a liar

Commenting on the video where Keith Raniere speaks about “killing” provoked this comment from Jamie Moses:

Frank this exchange is remarkable. I’ve watched it at least three times. The disconnect between her accusation and his answer is stunning. And here’s a guy who says on video that he’s had people killed. I don’t believe it…. but wouldn’t you think law enforcement would want to to confront him with this tape and ask for an explanation. Then what? He either confesses to murder or confesses he’s a liar.  Raniere painted himself in a corner here…. can’t someone take advantage of it?

WOMAN: … our company is falling apart.

RANIERE: You don’t have the experience of leadership. You don’t have the experience of preserving people’s lives with what you say. And the truth of the matter is ..

WOMAN: Well in a way neither do you.

RANIERE: Yes I do.

WOMAN: No you don’t… because your only company before this was Consumers Buyline and that in my understanding fell apart within a few years or went downhill after a couple years when you got sued or whatever it was.

RANIERE: Well, here’s the thing, I’ve been shot at because of my beliefs. I’ve had to make choices: should I have bodyguards? Should I have them armed or not? I’ve had people killed because of my beliefs and because of their beliefs and because of things that I’ve said.  And I’m mindful of that and I’m leading an organization that’s doing something very good.

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
