The Possibility of Another Superseding Indictment

For readers who question us about when the superseding indictment is coming – if it is coming – I think what Assistant US Attorney Moira Penza told Judge Nicholas Garaufis at a status conference on January 9, 2019, holds true today.

Penza told Judge Garaufis:

“The government continues to expect a superseding indictment in this case. Of course, we can’t promise a superseding indictment

“… There are a number of factors that are weighing into the timing considerations for a superseding indictment. Obviously, the government is cognizant of the trial date that is set as of now and we are moving expeditiously. One of the items that is in play is the privilege, the discussions regarding privilege as to a number of documents, a number of email communications that the government believes are relevant to our superseding indictment, and so one of the things that we are waiting for is resolution of a number of these privilege issues.

“In addition, there are always other complications with superseding indictments, but we do anticipate having one. We just can’t give the Court a precise date, but we do understand the benefit to the Court of having that type of certainty. We just can’t provide it at this time.”

***

I think the critical language here is:  “The government continues to expect a superseding indictment in this case….  we do anticipate having one.”

Sources tell me that the government is actively investigating this matter. Two new attorneys have been added to the prosecution team in recent monhs.

If the trial date is presently set for the end of April, I would predict that the superseding indictment will have to come sometime in March before the nitty gritty arrangements for trial get down to hard dates – and the release of material from the prosecution to the defense.

A superseding indictment almost certainly will result in the trial being pushed back until after the summer.

The government now says its expects their case to take at least 5 weeks to conduct – not counting the defense’s case. Judge Garaufis does not conduct trials in the summer.

I anticipate a trial in October.

  • You’ve been right on your predictions every time before, Frank. So I tend to believe your prediction. I’m just very interested to see WHO will be indicted. October sounds reasonable for the beginning of the trial. Does anyone know why some trials are public and others private? Like OJ’s for example. Is it up to the defense if they want it to be public? And obviously it really depends on how famous the defendants are for the media to even pick it up. I would love to make this trial my new reality show addiction lol

    • Sure does aspergers boy. Names, place, date and photographic evidence. Checkmate. Every time you jerk off to Crook, your aspergers gets worse. You have turned 100% to the spank side of the force. Your palm must have calluses.

        • You got nothing to win with. You lose, again. You can’t win a single argument with facts. You talk autistic shit and can provide zero evidence to support your spanks, so you resort to another cry baby, little girl hissy fit. Checkmate indeed!

  • Scott,

    Can you post your tweet to Kristin Kruek for everyone?

    Assuming Frank allows it to be posted and you are willing to share it with Frankreport.

    I completely understand if you do not want to post it. You may be scared and intimidated by Kristin Kreuk.

  • Tip for Mrs. Kathy Russell. The cell grids are suitable as a replacement for a ballet bar.
    The don’t have the right diameter, but better than none. It’s important to hold a cell bar at
    the correct height. A height of 110 cm or 3 feet 7 inch is recommended for adults.

  • Will the courtroom become a theater stage? Starring Allison Mack et al.
    Probably not because the judge won’t allow it.

    For a long time, Allison has changed her career goals to concentrate on her career
    as a hardcore criminal at NXIVM/DOS. But that doesn’t mean she hasn’t used her
    acting skills to deceive the people she’s targeting. That was comprehensive and
    enduring, a kind of permanent acting assignment. In this sense, she combined
    two careers. And now she is about to prove her acting talent in court.

    By the way, how about earning money for defense with merchandise or with Gofundme.

    What to wait for?

  • Um… I think one of the guest columnists or commentators at Frankreport hit a nerve.
    Wow!!! PoppyCock is on to something. Damn!!! Frankreport postings and guest articles have power.

    If you’re an intelligent person and have something to ‘say’ writing a Frankreport article does have power.

    I think that Kristin Kreuk twitter “tweet” is in a direct response to something connected… directly or indirectly to the Frankreport… Scott J Arizona congrats if you are the reason for the Kristin Kreuk tweet. Maybe you’re not so bad after all.. it was you? Right?

    https://mobile.twitter.com/MsKristinKreuk/status/1096482344217792513

    • LOL. Please don’t give Scot any credit. Kristin likely made her statement in regards to NXIVM due to a sensationalized article title that linked her to the “sex cult” because of her Smallville connection with Allison Mack that was constantly being tweeted for an entire day. This article also quoted Frank Parlato who only said that NXIVM used Kristin for recruiting purposes but didn’t tie her to the same allegations of wrongdoing that Allison was accused of. It’s been nearly a year later since that time and she likely posted this due to those events and also because she is a fan of John Green who is a writer and who is also a fan of hers. If my memory serves me correctly, there was a small twitter “conversation” between the two last year where she said she was a fan of his in a tweet relating to one of his books, and he responded with a tweet telling her likewise, i.e., that he was a fan of hers.

          • No creep, you call any information about Kreuk misinformation if it is remotely negative and people are sick of you. You are not Kreuk or her spokesperson. Nobody gives a fuck what you have to say because you have nothing to add to the conversation. You just shit and jizz on the conversation. Just f*** off and stop being you. Don’t you dare call people liars for pointing out facts you don’t like. These facts will never go away,, no matter how much you have aspergers hissy fits. You are consistently nasty and vile. A cry-bully. You are a liar who cries behind multiple aliases and lies about it when called out. You are absolutely pathetic. You have no position to insult others when you have been exposed as a seriously creepy stalker. Your mental derangement is a combination of an ISIS sex slaver, Sheldon Cooper from the Big Bang Theory, Ned Flanders from the Simpsons, the guy who killed John Lennon and your average twitter SJW crybaby. Now f*** off you literal nobody.

    • That’s weird. I seldom looked at his account, but he didn’t seem to post very often.
      I do know that another Scott Johnson account (which looked like it was a bot) tried to follow me a few weeks ago, and I saw that it was soon suspended. Hmmm….

      • Did you report the bot Scott that tried to follow you, Flowers?

        Perhaps there’s been a tragic mix-up of mistaken identity. …Wait! Could it, would it, was it DENNIS BURKE?! 😆

        • No, I didnt, but since that bot was later suspended, it must have been reported by someone.

          But that isn’t the way twitter works, Heidi. When you report a bot or an abusive account, you have to provide twitter with the account handle. There are probably several accounts using the name Scott Johnson, but they all have different handles.

          Twitter doesn’t suspend unless they see abusive tweets from the account in question (and twitter usually just suspends the account for a day, in most cases) or if the reported account is an obvious bot or is impersonating someone.

          • Bullshit lady. The twits at twitter are fucking notorious for suspending conservative viewpoints. Lady, that hole between the cheeks behind you is an exit, not and entrance for your head.

      • Agree, Niceguy, especially if Bangkok’s another Scott (Tex) Johnson alias.

        My guess is Schlock set up multiple Twitter accounts, which is against their rules, to do what he’s been doing on FR – respond to his own comments or posts and harass others anonymously or under an alias.

        You weren’t around when the comment section of this blog was best described as a “madman’s echo chamber.” When Schlock drove off all other commenters with insults and lies then proceeded to converse with only himself. Frank tried many interventions short of banning him and even now must spend precious time editing insulting, demeaning and untrue comments Schlock constantly submits.

        It’s not that Scott has nothing relevant to contribute, he does and he can be witty. He just has so many personality issues including projecting his flaws onto others, megalomania, etc. that he can’t stop himself from breaking rules meant to protect other users and the site itself from his harmful take-over antics.

        • I don’t see any evidence that Scott was doing that. I had looked at his account before and it appeared he didn’t post very often, so I don’t think he was using it to respond to sock puppet accounts.

          Twitter will only suspend it there was a complaint made to them by another account.

    • Meaningless bullshit. Twitter is a tool of the deep state. They constantly ban and shadow ban strong conservative voices. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/02/twitter-founder-jack-dorsey-admits-twitter-colludes-with-far-left-activist-groups-and-governments-like-pakistan-to-censor-twitter/ Not defending scooter as his idiocy will always bit his lame ass, How ever the scumbag Jackie Dorsey is a tool of the deepstate and his time is coming. Jackie is finding out that we have it all.

      • Truth…..

        The truth is that Donald Trump has promoted and helped Twitter expand more than anything or anyone else.

        Twitter should pay Trump for all of the free promotion and advertising Twitter has received.

    • Actually, it is a good thing that big companies start caring about the consequences of fake news and conspiracy theories. Deplatforming might be the only way to achieve this.

      The big media companies should be hold responsible for the harm done by groups like anti-vaxxers for instance. Spreading false information causes real harm. Just think of stuff like pizzagate. It was heavily promoted by Alex Jones’ infowars and ended up with some moron showing up and shooting up the place. There must be limits and people like Jones have to feel real consequences.

        • Don’t be so sure about that, Scott. I hear that Jones had more involvement with Stone and Manafort than most realize, and obviously Stone has committed a number of crimes….(the information on Stone’s crimes is just starting to be made public now) and the truth of it all will be much worse than most people will believe.

          I wouldn’t have believed it myself until this last year, when I started looking more closely at all this BS…. but it is true that Stone & Jones are a really evil duo. 😉

        • Jones is an instigator, who told these people to go there and investigate for themselves. This guy did as he was told by infowars. No need to play it down.
          What would you say, if certain media would tell their viewers to take their gun and investigate collusion in the White House or Trump tower?

          Some things are simply off limits. Jones is simply scaring people. They do irrational things like not vaccinating their children, which is leading to measles outbreaks at the moment. Do not tell me he is not responsible for that. Immunization is down to 75% now. It was 91% a decade ago due to stupid fear mongering.

      • You can’t curb free speech. However, I’m all for proving and/or showing that an item is false or fake information or that it isn’t supported and then removing it, or not allowing potentially damaging or inciting information until credible supporting evidence is provided for it.

        It’s better to show how such things are misinformation instead of just removing it and saying nothing because that just furthers the conspiracies.

        • I am not curbing free speech. Everyone can go out and shout as much as he or she likes to. But as long as you are using a company’s resources to do that, be it their servers or their web pages, you have to behave in a way they accept. The moment they don’t want your stuff on their property any more, they are free to remove it.

          There are even countries in which you are liable for stuff they are hosting. This must not necessarily bad as long as it is done the right way.

      • Interesting that you would spout such liberal jibbershit NOT! You didn’t seem to care when the 3 main networks of the 60’s ABC NBC CBS spouted propaganda and lies. Ever heard of Cronkite and Rather among others. Now CNN MSNBC New York Times and Washington Post put out lies and disinformation on a daily basis along with the previously mentioned disinfo operations. The 4 am talking points are the democrat propaganda machine lifeblood.

        You hopefully will learn what happens to some of your liberal gestapo buddies from the upcoming Covington KY lawsuits that are being filed by the boys attorney’s. Your deliberate hypocrisy is both vile and downright evil

          • I think people are sick of your drivel and constantly clogging up the board. I know I am. Please STFU and get lost

        • It’s mostly left-wing and partisan Democrat news landscape in the U.S. and abroad.”

          Progressive have made such a mess of things, that you know their followers truly show……Signs Of The Easily Fooled, because many Of The Truths They Cling Too depend on the MSM Point of View !!

          Instead of hope and change from these idiots, ……………we got Hoax and Chains !…Yet ……Try as progressives might,……three things cannot be hidden…The Sun, The Moon and The Truth !

          Progressives are now showing the rest of us how abnormally unintelligent, amazingly inarticulate, fantastically uncultured, extraordinarily uneducated they are, and apparently………they’re quite proud of all these things !!

          I know of No Time in History,…..Where Ignorance Was Better Than Knowledge…so I say to you all,….The Liberty Of Man Is Not Safe In The Hands Of Elitists !!

      • Is this an example of what you are crying about Willard?

        Networks Kept ‘No Collusion’ Senate Investigation Result Off Evening Newscasts, Report Says
        BY PETR SVAB
        February 15, 2019 Updated: February 15, 2019 Share

        Major broadcast networks excluded from their evening news the results of the Senate Intelligence Committee investigation, which found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

        Yet, in the past two years, the evening newscasts dedicated over 2,200 minutes, nearly fifth of their Trump-related reporting, to the Russia investigation, according to the nonprofit Media Research Center (MRC), which went through coverage on ABC’s “World News Tonight,” the CBS “Evening News,” and the NBC “Nightly News” between Jan. 21, 2017 and Feb. 10, 2019.

        After interviewing more than 200 witnesses and reviewing 300,000 pages of documents, the Senate Intelligence Committee has found no evidence of collusion between the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump and the Russian government, according to both Democratic and Republican sources on the committee.

        But the networks not only shut the news out of the nighttime news, but, in case of the NBC and CBS, from their flagship morning shows as well.

        “NBC’s failure to mention this on either Today or the Nightly News is especially egregious, since the story was broken by the network’s own Ken Dilanian on Feb. 12,” MRC stated in a Feb. 14 report.

        “Over the past two years, broadcast evening news shows have spent more than 36 hours haranguing viewers about potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Given their keen interest in the subject, you might expect a bipartisan group of investigators finding ‘no material evidence’ of collusion to be newsworthy. But evidently, you’d be wrong.”

        ABC’s “Good Morning America” dedicated less than one minute to the news on Feb. 13.

        • I have two simple questions Teddy,

          1. Why can the people not wait for Mueller to finish his job?
          2. Why do you ignore the results we already have, like for instance the people who did plead guilty?

          Trump might or might not have been involved in collusion in person, but he has people around him, who were involved in shady deals with domestic or foreign power. So no matter what Mueller presents, he helped to drain the swamp. A swamp that was in part created by Trump. Some of the people he got into office are corrupt and Mueller’s investigation pointed it out. This is something we should not forget.

          And to make it clear, the big media companies are not shouting “LOCK HIM UP” or are making up conspiracy theories. This investigation is based on facts. Mueller managed to deliver. I do not give a shit whether Trump will remain in office for 2 or 6 more years, but the connection to Russia and other foreign countries needs to be severed. For this to happen all the people who were actually involved need to be found and dealt with accordingly.

          • Interesting. I just read Teddy’s comments. Deadly accurate and not one of you simpletons refuted any of it. Give the hypocrisy a rest Willard. Mueller has process crimes that are going to become totally meaningless which is all this sham of an investigation has come up with. It is what you would expect based on who Mueller picked to be on the SP team. Hint , all democrats with close ties to the Clintons Tere was no collusion however there were FISA court abuses as well as a coup attempt by the corrupt head of the FBI and DOJ under that were Clinton and Obama lackeys. Now the chickens are coming home to roost as the Trump team is methodically cleaning hose contaminated agencies out. By the way simple minded ones, I see McCabe is starting to sing. Sleep well fools times are changing and not to your evil whims. The DNC ought to be made to pay every penny back to the Americn taxpayer for this sham.

          • Willard you are a total blowhard who spews idiocy

            Let’s talk facts with the Mueller Investigation
            The Crown Jewel in the coup was the appointment of special counsel Robert Muller to discover supposed 2016 Trump-Russian election collusion. Never has any special investigation been so ill-starred from its conception.

            Mueller’s appointment was a result of his own friend James Comey’s bitter stunt of releasing secret, confidential and even classified memos of presidential conversations. Acting DOJ Attorney Rod Rosenstein appointed a former colleague Mueller—although as a veteran himself of the Clinton email scandal investigations and the FISA fraudulent writ requests, Rosenstein was far more conflicted than was the recused Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

            Mueller then packed his investigative team with lots of Clinton donors and partisans, some of whom had legally represented Clinton subordinates and even the Clinton Foundation or voiced support for anti-Trump movements.

            Mueller himself and Andrew Weissmann have had a long record of investigatory and prosecutorial

            overreach that had on occasion resulted in government liability and court mandated federal restitution. In such polarized times, neither should have involved in such an investigation. Two subordinate FBI investigators were caught earlier on conducting an affair over their FBI-issued cell phones, and during the election cycle they slurred the object of their subsequent investigation, ridiculed Trump voters, and bragged that Trump would never be elected. Mueller later staggered, and then hid for weeks the reasons for, their respective firings.

            The team soon discovered there was no Trump-Russian 2016 election collusion—and yet went ahead to leverage Trump campaign subordinates on process crimes in hopes of finding some culpability in Trump’s past 50-year business, legal, and tax records. The point was not to find who colluded with whom (if it had been, then Hillary Clinton would be now indicted for illegally hiring with campaign funds a foreign national to buy foreign fabrications to discredit her opponent), but to find the proper mechanism to destroy the presumed guilty Donald Trump.

            The Mueller probe has now failed in that gambit of proving “collusion” as even progressive investigative reporters and some FBI investigators had predicted.

        • Hi Teddy,

          First off, I am a Republican.

          You, my friend, are spreading fictional propaganda. What are the exact name and serial number of the report?

          No answer is ever coming because it does not exist, you Alex Jones jock rider.

          Cat your tongue or is your wife sitting on your face?

          • What an idiotic comment. Do you ever shut the fuck up or are you a Scooter Johnson wannabe. You crap all over the place here yet say little of value. Yor mommy should take your phone away and make you actually read a book

        • So are Rachel Madcow and Don Lemon among may other left wing bullshit artists. I don’t listen to Jones since he is Mossad connected. If you don’t like the guy than shut the f up and turn the fucking dial.

  • Judge Garaufis does not conduct trials in the summer

    That may change if both defense and prosecution are ready May, June or July.

  • Is this regarding NXIVM?

    https://twitter.com/MsKristinKreuk/status/1096482344217792513

    We saw her name and the name of Allison Mack in a pedophile expose, lawsuit, and in those articles about financial crime planned on Necker Island. Women came forward and spoke about the terrible things their cult leader did to them. She doesn’t want to talk about NXIVM because she is not innocent, nor was Allison Mack before DOS. Child rape victims coming forward, published police report, an actual filed lawsuit with names and photographic evidence is pretty good evidence, especially when all three come out in the space of one month.

    Also this: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bt6aU9rFyva/

    The artist suggests Crook left the cult in 2012. She claims 2013. One is innocently incorrect, the other is telling porkies.

    Claiming you never “experienced” any illegal or nefarious activity is not the same as not knowing about illegal or nefarious activity.

    • The whole top tier leadership of NXIVM, particularly those who lived in the NXIVM village in Clifton Park, New York, knew of Raniere’s rampant pedophilia,
      Many are morally complicit and some are legally vulnerable.
      Sadly many of these NXIVM leaders are women who should have protected girls from the pervert Raniere.

      • Hi Shadow,
        Important
        Possible Money laundering clue. Please leave a comment confirming you have read this comment. Thanks
        I agree with you Alison Mack is some how involved in money laundering…. when she went to “France”, I believe she may have gone to Switzerland. Why?

        Because there was a photo on her Instagram account of her and her personal tour guide as well as her mother on a train that had a similar interior to the French High speed train that travels to Switzerland. I have traveled on a similar train with a similar interior myself with my wife just about 3 years ago.

        The photo on Instagram I tried to find again , because of an article you wrote I went.when I checked the Instagram account it had been taken off.

        France and Switzerland are EU countries Mack’s passport would not have been stamped.

        Do you “Shadow” or does anyone else have the travel photos of Mack and her foreign travel guide?

        All of those photos of the interior of that train have been taken down as well as the other photos of her an Nicki Clyne on the other trains. Why ?

        Why is the photo of her and Nicky on a commuter rail train still up and all the other train interior photos taken down.

        I think someone pointed it out to them that it would show that Allison and nicki were on a high speed France/Switzerland train.

      • And you know that because you lived in NXIVM village, right? So why are you not named, as you were clearly in the NXIVM leadership back in the day.

        Or are you just speculating again?

        • Dearest F.D.C Willard,

          Thank you for your lovely message, but no, I was never in NXIVM or any other cult in any way shape or form.

          I do however have two wonderfully efficient eyes and internet connection, thus, I was able to find a picture on the Instagram account of Allison Mack dated June 18th 2012 of the three cult members together in New York, four months after the Times Union expose.

          https://www.instagram.com/p/MBj1E8Ji1c/

          Once again, thank you for your lovely message.

        • Shadowstate is another propaganda blowhard like yourself. His reality are his own preconceived conclusions based on his emotions. Just like you

  • mk10art: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bt6NpzxlREh/

    Also “sultan” is over on Artvoice pretending to be someone else, white knighting Kristin Kook worse than ever before. He is literally responding to his own posts, having conversations with himself. There is something very very very wrong with this creature. He needs to be blocked from commentating for the sanity of these two sites. Giving him this platform only deepens his serious condition(s).

    • Gawd, you’re such a lying sociopath. I responded in the comments there literally two days ago for the first time when I followed an internet search to see my name once again being projected onto another Kristin supporter in the comments. I have always come here to post until just recently.

      Just because you’re a projecting, paranoid loser who thinks that everyone who supports Kristin is me because you do the opposite doesn’t make them me and never will. Kristin is a celebrity, and a pretty famous one in Canada WHO HAS THOUSANDS OF FANS ACROSS THE WORLD. Just because you think she’s a “d-list smell the fart actress” doesn’t mean she has only one fan who is me.

      You’re such a whiny, crying bitch.

      • You talk exactly the same when pretending to be someone else you vaginal yeast infection. After a year of reading your your completely mentally deranged psycho babble, you stick out like a baboons ass.

        • I write and sound nothing like the person you cast you vile comments onto on artvoice that you thought was me. You claim every pro Kristin related comment is written by me and start firing away. You’re bringing me up in places I haven’t even been to.

          You have the intellectual discernment of a turkey.

        • Accuse someone of something. When they defend themselves, assert that this mere act is evidence of their guilt.

          You don’t say something – the silence is evidence of your guilt.
          You say something in defense – your act of defense is now evidence of your guilt.

          Wala! You’re always guilty.

          Too bad both are logical fallacies.

          Grow up losers.

        • I leave Sultanof6 alone and I think everyone else should as well.

          I only made one joke/insult comment towards him
          .
          Sultan6 means well in his own way from what I have read. He is just a unique individual.

    • This is an unhealthy obsession. Do you mumble Sultan’s name in your sleep and dream of him, then wake up in a cold sweat or a hard on?

      • Nobody in the world gets sexually aroused by you old boy. Hence your chronic masturbation problem. But you mumble Kreuk’s name in your sleep (that you unfortunately wake up from), dream of her (in a jizz stained hijab), then wake up in a cold sweat (that has an eastern stench) with only a semi, as your low levels of testosterone affect your ability to harden your already disgusting small penile gland that must resemble a garden slug with the head gnawed off by a rat.

  • Crybaby Jane must realize by now that he is now a permanent resident at Club Fed. I think he must be making new friends by now, his ego would require it. I imagine he’s keeping warm with and mentoring a band of naredowell drag queens who suddenly have found themselves on 800 calorie a day diets (although on the upside, they’re not as exhausted as prior slaves, endless late night walks being prohibited in Fort Knox Woods)

    • He had to find someone to sell him ink pens. Not everyone has access to them. That was really his big beef with the cold conditions. He couldn’t get warm water to dye his hair before the next hearing.
      I’m still ROTFLMAF over his MDC cellblock beauty treatment. Clare is filling for a patent as I’m posting this.
