Source: ‘MONSTER’ Superseding Indictment expected within three weeks

MK10ART: Keith Raniere and the other Nxivm defendants.

Editor’s note: I have not and never have been in communication with anyone from the Eastern District of New York Department of Justice. My source in this story is a lawyer familiar with the case.

According to a reliable source with information about the ongoing investigation of Nxivm, a superseding indictment is around the corner and it will be a “monster” the lawyer source says.

“It will include new charges for Keith and Clare and others – and will name new defendants.”

All told, the new “monster” superseding indictment will surpass, the source says, everything heretofore charged put together.

As for longer sentences, the source says that Clare, Nancy and Lauren will have additional charges that will greatly extend their present “vulnerabilities” which presently range in the 3- 5 year prison sentencing guidelines range.

As for Raniere – who is already facing life in prison – he may earn enough new charges to put him behind bars for several hundred years.

“Based on the charges and if he is convicted, which seems likely, he will go to a supermax facility. He will never see daylight again. He will die in prison.”

Kathy Russell and Allison Mack, the source said, are less likely to be hit with significant new charges.

As for new defendants, our source singled out Alejandro Betancourt as the man most likely to be charged and suspects that at the top levels at “Main Justice” (the Washington DC headquarters of the DOJ,) a deal was cut with Carlos Salinas, brokered by high-level Democrats, to spare Emiliano Salinas from an indictment.

This despite the fact the EDNY was pushing for his indictment on the rather quaint theory that if someone committed a crime, they should be charged regardless of political connections.

It remains to be seen how that will play out.

“I’d say it is 50-50 on whether they will indict Emiliano despite the fact that he directly conspired in a serious criminal plot to destroy the enemies of Keith Raniere.”

The big news, of course, is that this expected superseding indictment may be the culmination of the 17-month investigation into NXIVM  – and will take us into brand new territory. The scope and breadth may be wider than anyone anticipated.

It is not known if any public officials will be indicted.

As for timing: “The superseding will have to come out really no later than March 15th,” the source said. “The prosecution cannot just spring it on the judge at the last minute. The trial is currently set for an April 29 start date. We are getting into the trial zone soon, that time when a lot of things happen in the month or two leading up to trial that are specific to the charges and are wasteful expenditures of time if there is going to be a superseding indictment. The superseding should come before the intense preparation for trial occurs. Once it comes – with its batch of new charges and new defendants – it will push back the trial most likely beyond Labor Day. It is my understanding that Judge Garaufis does not like to subject jurors to trials in the summer.”

Stay tuned.

  • Burke er uh Bangkok, I mean, likely will have very little time to post here once this monster superseding indictment is unsealed.

  • Indict Emiliano Salinas, Alejandro Betancourt, Dr. Brandon Porter, Dr. Danielle Roberts and Nicki Clyne.

    If Carlos Salinas doesn’t like it, then let him piss into the wind.

    If Harvard University does not like it (Carlos and Emiliano are graduates of Harvard), then let the boys at Harvard piss into the wind.

    If necessary, have another superseding indictment later in the year.

    • In the 1860s the Democratic Party supported the slavery of black people even if it meant the destruction of the United States of America.
      Today’s Democratic Party supports the sexual slavery of women to avoid indicting corrupt foreign politicians.
      The Democratic Party is an organization of scumbags and hypocrites.

      ” our source suspects that at the top levels at “Main Justice” (the Washington DC headquarters of the DOJ,) a deal was cut with Carlos Salinas, brokered by high-level Democrats, to spare Emiliano Salinas from an indictment.”

  • If your source is correct, this is very exciting news although it’s disappointing but not surprising that there would be polical pressure to keep Salinas safe from prosecution. Do the high ranking Democrats include the Clintons? Kirsten Gillibrand?
    Will Vanguard have to wear orange in the future? And will it clash with his hair?

  • Looking forward to it. Hope they nail Rosa Laura Junco for the illegal immigration and forced labour and Raniere’s sexual assaults on the Mexican teenager. Who skates the next round will be informative.

  • I certainly welcome Frank’s news about a ‘Monster’ superseding indictment coming down the pipe, since both Keith & Clare are animals who deserve MANY years in prison.

    Keith is a human manifestation of a pot bellied pig who is poorly hung.

    Clare is a human manifestation of an ugly mule with half a brain.

    *However, I know that Frank’s ‘source’ is telling us things that are verifiably UNTRUE.

    In my opinion Frank’s source is unreliable.

    Here’s WHY I think this…

    Firstly, Frank has said that he’s not in communication with anybody from the EDNY (which I assume to be true, since Frank is a fairly trustworthy guy).

    Frank has further said that his source is a lawyer ‘familiar with the case’.

    That’s the problem here.


    …Because the grand jury process is FUCKING SECRET and there’s no way for a ‘lawyer’ (an officer of the court) to know the SECRET DETAILS about a future Grand Jury Indictment UNLESS he’s affiliated — in some way — with the prosecutor’s office seeking the indictment.

    The ONLY other possibility is that this ‘lawyer’ is getting leaks from Penza’s team so that he can relay them to Frank Parlato to be published on his blog, which is basically the SAME THING as Frank being in ‘indirect’ communication with the EDNY.

    I find it HARD to believe that a self-righteous prosecutor like Moira Penza has purposely leaked SECRET Grand Jury info to a 3rd party lawyer, with the understanding that he’ll be leaking it to Frank Parlato for use on his blog.

    I don’t believe that Penza’s staff would do that because THEY DON’T GAIN ANYTHING by having Frank mention this ‘monster indictment’ a few weeks before it actually comes out.

    Thus, if the EDNY did not leak this info then HOW THE FUCK did a ‘lawyer’ (an officer of the court) attain this SECRET Grand Jury information in the first place?

    My guess is that Frank’s source is a lying sack of manure who’s merely GUESSING about what he THINKS is likely to happen.

    I smell a rat here.

    I smell something RANCID here.

    Of course, it’s possible that Frank is lying to us about his source being a ‘lawyer’ (since Frank is fond of obfuscating facts to protect his sources).

    It’s possible that Frank’s source is REALLY an FBI agent investigating the case for the EDNY.

    However, if that’s the case then the FBI team would be considered a part of the EDNY prosecution team (i.e. they’d be forbidden from leaking secret grand jury info).

    I therefore don’t believe that Frank’s source is working for the FBI or the EDNY.

    Methinks that Frank is relying on the GUESS WORK of a scumbag lawyer who has ZERO DETAILS about the secret Grand Jury process.

    Look people, it’s obvious to everybody that a superseding indictment is coming soon. It’s imminent. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out. Thus, it sounds like this ‘lawyer’ is just injecting his own OPINION about what he THINKS the indictment might include.

    • “I assume to be true, since Frank is a fairly trustworthy guy” <=== your own words betray your argument
      Frank is trustworthy {he smells good not rancid figuratively speaking i wouldnt literally}

    • You seem very focused on proving everyone a LYING SACK OF SHIT (to use your all-caps vernacular), and your reasoning is highly speculative. You seem to smell conspiracy theories around every corner. According to you, Heidi’s lying, Krclaviger’s lying and so is Frank. Would you speculate on their motives for posting false information here?

      If you want to do some digging, why don’t you, on some topics that sorely need attention? Then maybe you can offer up some substance rather than constant assaults on those who make actual contributions.

  • Former rankIng NXIANS, as you sit there reading this article, you suddenly stop what you were thinking and begin remembering the crimes you have committed for NXIVM and you automatically realize, YOU may be indicted next.

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.
