Source: Raniere distances himself from collateral destroyed by Clare

Sexslave cult attorney, William F. Savino of Woods Oviatt Gilman (l) with sexcult client, Clare Bronfman (r).

A source told Frank Report that Clare Bronfman recently ordered the destruction of all the “collateral” that had been uploaded on Drop Box by DOS members.

Keith Raniere is said to have assured Miss Bronfman that since the “collateral” belonged to her, and her partners, Allison Mack and Nancy Salzman, she was free to destroy it.  He apparently did not explain to her that actions could be interpreted as obstruction of justice.

The destruction may have occurred because of Miss Bronfman’s criminal complaint against Sarah Edmondson of Vancouver.

Miss Bronfman blames Miss Edmondson for sparking a large scale exodus of members from ESP.

With the cratering of ESP, DOS recruitment is at a standstill.  Miss Bronfman reportedly believes Miss Edmondson informed ESP members about DOS.

Since it is a secret society, DOS recruiters should have had the right to be the first to tell potential ESP students about DOS and not Miss Edmondson.

For his part, Mr. Raniere reportedly is telling the women that since he is not an official member of DOS and has no proprietary interest in DOS, he, therefore, cannot have any direct or implied ownership of the collateral.

He reportedly explained to Miss Bronfman that it is “her decision” to destroy or not destroy the collateral after she “evaluates all the data”.

A source told Frank Report that not all the collateral was destroyed and that most of it is stored at undisclosed locations.

“Keith has explained and I believe it is his position that he does not own the collateral”, a source formerly close to Mr. Raniere told Frank Report. “Keith did not accept the collateral. He does not know where the collateral is. Allison Mack and the other slave masters requested collateral. Clare [Bronfman] took control of it. If the shit hits the fan, he knows nothing. His name is on nothing. He did not speak directly with Ben Myers or anybody about anything so he is in the clear”. 

Not only did Miss Bronman destroy collateral but some of the DOS slave masters did also.

“Some of the people destroyed a bunch of collateral after your story came out”, a source said. ‘They wanted to make sure Keith was protected. They were taking the collateral electronically. These weren’t hard copies.  You could print the photographs but it was all digital. It went up on Drop Box. Drop Box is a very secure service.  I think once you erase something, it’s gone”.

Raniere is probably safe in Albany County because the local District Attorney, P. David Soares, has close ties to Clare – and several members of his family have previously been involved in NXIVM. But if the Saratoga County District Attorney or the Feds ever get involved, then Raniere may be forced to finally answer for all of his illegal acts.

Is it possible to trick reality?

The question is mainly for Keith, but I’m sure he would just as well giggle at that given his operating world view. Yeeha.

But for the others, still in Vangard’s orbit, this concept of character is being used as a control mechanism. It’s not about your character, it’s about control and keeping you immobilized. Later in life you will reflect on this and be amazed that you ever entrusted so much authority to people who really hadn’t earned it, who lied along with some “skillful handling”. All the pressure and 2AM committee meetings and checkins keep you nice and busy and tired and soft and distracted.

He won’t be able to Vanguard his ass in jail. He’ll have a nice boyfriend or two that will dominate him and make him long for the days of scamming women and men out of their money and bodies.

It was reported that, before Vanguard Week:

1. Allison Mack would take complete responsibility to the insider community for DOS blachmail, slavery, and genital branding, and deny that Keith Raniere, Executive Success Programs, JNESS, and SOP had nothing to do with it.

2. There would be law enforcement action at the Albany-area, New York State, or US federal level regarding branding, blackmail, illegal immigration, computer intrusion, or tax evasion.

Is there a status update?

VanDouche is behind it all. Everyone knows it. He can try to wipe his hands clean of it, but can you ever clean something that is disgustingly dirty by default?

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.
