An email made available to the frankreport from Barbara Bouchey to Sara and Clare Bronfman and others refers to how Matt McMorris a Raniere underling was instructed to alter her computer systems. This was common practice and while it is not dispositive proof of anything – since the plan was aborted, I know from my days as a consultant there that all Raniere had to do at any time was instruct anyone [with the exception of Bouchey] and poof – there went Bronfman money.

Here is the email; it gives  glimpse of the inner workings of Raniere and NXIVM even though neither is mentioned in the email. A serious question which ought to be raised is how much did the Bronfmans know or understand about their affairs as Raniere went through their assets at a $20 million per year clip?

Subject: Fiduciary Responsibility & Office Protocol


Hello Everyone,


Daz shared with me this morning that Matt called recently on behalf of Sara

Bronfman and asked Daz to perform certain tasks that might alter permanently

my office systems and computers. Matt is an outside consultant performing at

times certain accounting functions, but it would not be within his prevue to

instruct anyone working for my company to alter my systems. Even if he did

work for me, it is important that no one permanently alter my systems without

asking me first. Would everyone kindly make such requests to me in the future

since I need to supervise, have a fiduciary responsibility and need to approve of

such things before done. Would you let me know you received this and it’s

Without even asking Barbara, I already know she did not personally send this to you. It must have been in a public filing somewhere, so it would be nice if you list which filing it was.

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.
