  • Thank you Frank and all the brave souls that came forward to make this happen. I’d love to be a fly on the wall right now in Raniere world. Love to see him in handcuffs and chains, behind bars and hopefully in a crowded place with crappy food. Guess you’ll get to eat some meat without having to sneak around for it. Maybe some beanie weenies also.

  • Thank you Frank for all your hard work in keeping us up to date. I been following NXIVM as closely as I could over the years. It’s been unnerving to work in a building next them all this time. I’m hoping this is the first step in taking them all down, not just Keith Raniere.

  • “Raniere’s emails from a Yahoo account attributed to him were seized during the investigation and revealed evidence indicating he created the group and had female slaves assigned directly to him, according to the complaint.”

    LOL.

    The world’s smartest man. NOT!

    • I can’t believe that with Raniere’s ceaseless boasting he only “…graduated with a 2.26 GPA, having failed or barely passed many of the upper-level math and science classes he bragged about taking.” So underwhelming.

  • Wow! Thank you for the update, Frank!

    From the Times Union: “Keith Raniere, the co-founder of the NXIVM corporation, a secretive Colonie-based organization that an expert has called an “extreme cult,” has been arrested by the FBI based on a federal criminal complaint filed in the Eastern District of New York, according to a person briefed on the arrest.

    The complaint, filed recently in connection with an ongoing federal criminal investigation being headed by the U.S. attorney’s office in Brooklyn, charges Raniere with sex trafficking and forced labor.

    A person briefed on the investigation said the federal complaint does not include all of the charges that are being examined by the U.S. attorney’s office.”
