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.”


The world’s smartest man. NOT!

2.26 GPA is decidedly average, nothing genius about it

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.”

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.
