I have confirmed from several sources that Keith Raniere would regularly faint when confronted with women angry about his lies.
Did Clare Bronfman fake a faint before Judge Garaufis today – just when he was pressuring her for answers that might reveal she was lying.
Sources who witnessed Raniere fake a faint told me that he would seem to grow light headed, or hold his heart and say he was having palpitations.
Here is one comment:
“That’s straight out of the Raniere manifesto on conflict resolution… Whenever I disagreed with him, he would conveniently faint. And I was very young and very naive at the time and believed he couldn’t handle the stress and was actually ill. I’d say it was quite a joke except he used it to be very manipulative. Clare should note that KAR’s ‘faint to fool em’ method doesn’t work on full grown, experienced adults.”
This sounds like a scam to me. Clare faked a faint – and conveniently too – just at the right moment.
Here are some pictures of her arriving in court.
