Hillary Clinton with Pam Cafritz's mother Buffy Cafritz

It’s Hillary Clinton, of course – Frank Report identifies presidential candidate DOJ claims Nxivm illegally supported

One of the gems of information contained in Document 414 , that notable filing by prosecution, wherein they ask the judge to rule on admissibility of a raft of crimes and misdemeanors that that racketeering enterprise known as Nxivm allegedly engaged in, but were not charged for, is the following, and is found on page 24 of  the document. 
It alleges an illegal scheme to support a certain candidate for president of the USA.
While the prosecution does not name the candidate Nxivm allegedly illegally supported, Frank Report will identify her:  She is Hillary Rodham Clinton.
There is no allegation that Clinton was a co-conspirator in the scheme.
Here is the relevant portion of the document
Campaign Contribution Evidence
i. Facts
At trial, the government intends to introduce witness testimony and documents demonstrating that in 2007, the defendants and their co-conspirators were involved in an illegal scheme to exceed contribution limits to a presidential primary campaign.
Witness testimony, corroborated by documentary evidence, will demonstrate that at least 14 members of the Nxivm community, including at least five defendants and co-conspirators made the maximum campaign donation to a primary campaign with the understanding that they would be reimbursed by [Clare] Bronfman or Nancy Salzman.
At the suggestion of a political operative, who has since pleaded guilty to an unrelated New York state bribery charge also involving campaign contributions, the contributions were “bundled” and presented to the candidate at a fundraising event attended by conspirators, including Nancy Salzman.
A cooperating witness who attended the event will testify that the defendants and their co-conspirators made the contributions in hopes of obtaining political influence to advance their own agenda, including targeting perceived enemies of Raniere. The government will also seek to introduce evidence of similar conduit contributions to other elected officials, as well as use of other political lobbyists in attempts to gain influence.
ii. Admissibility The defendants’ and co-conspirators’ involvement in the conduit contribution scheme and related acts described above, is direct evidence of the charged racketeering conspiracy. Their work together to commit crimes as part of a coordinated effort to curry political favor, evidenced in part by the records of maximum contributions by members of Nxivm on the same day, demonstrates the relationship of trust among the defendants and coconspirators, which is proof of the Enterprise’s existence.
… The same evidence also demonstrates the nature of the criminal relationships between the defendants, which defendants are attempting to portray as a purely legitimate association. The evidence of the conduit contributions is also direct evidence of the existence of the Enterprise and the pattern of racketeering activity because it is probative of the defendant and co-conspirators’ “us[e of] harassment, coercion and abusive litigation to intimidate and attack perceived enemies and critics of RANIERE,” (Indictment ¶ 6(f)).
Specifically, the bundled campaign contributions were part of an attempt to curry favor with a presidential nominee to advance the goals of the defendants and co-conspirators, including by obtaining indictments against enemies and gaining advantages in litigation.
… Moreover, the conduit contributions is also probative of motive and intent as to the DOS-related acts and charges, because the evidence at trial will demonstrate that one of the defendants and co-conspirators purposes in forming DOS was to have a pyramid of collateralized powerful women who he could order to do things for him or order to vote in a group to “turn elections.”

Finally, because several cooperating witnesses are implicated in the campaign contribution scheme, such evidence is also admissible to corroborate their testimony and to front issues that are expected to be raised on cross-examination.

A few additional notes:
About $60,000 was donated to Hillary Clinton by Nxivm members who were reimbursed by Bronfman [not Salzman]. The reimbursement was illegal. Bronfman made the reimbursements in cash.
Nancy participated in the recruiting and managing the donations [by check] and reimbursing the more than one dozen members who wrote checks to Clinton.
Again, there is no evidence that Hillary was aware of the illegal nature of the contributions.
The idea – approved by Keith Raniere – was to please her enough to get her to order some of her minions in law enforcement to focus attention on getting Rick Ross indicted in Arkansas, and Toni Natalie and Joe O’Hara indicted in New York State.
Unfortunately for Keith Raniere, it didn’t work out – and Hillary lost in the primary to Barack Obama.
Then, sadly for Raniere, in another election eight years later, Donald Trump defeated Hillary and his appointee as US Attorney in the Eastern District, Richard P. Donoghue, had no qualms about seeking an indictment for Raniere.
Ironically, Raniere’s associates recently pinned a great deal of hope on Democrats taking the majority in the US House of Representatives last November.
There were several Raniere supporters who actually rejoiced because they believed that the Democrats in the House would pull strings to get Raniere freed or get a plea deal that would see him walk out of jail with no prison time.
Of course, it was a ludicrous notion – like so many notions of those who followed him.
Such are the fates of the Vanguard.

  • While Trump is an amateur at getting away with crimes, the Clintons are masters at it. They will never be caught.

  • Ah ok ignore my last question I get it now. Frank feel free to delete that comment as well as this one as it adds no value to the conversation.

  • I don’t understand this. Why is it a statement on Clinton for a person or group of people to donate to her campaign? Isn’t that how the campaigns run? On donations? The amount donated seems like a very small amount.

  • Interesting. I always suspected there was some connection but I couldn’t figure out what their angle was. Probably why one of the followers wrote a book about Ivanka Trump; trying to get her attention and support. Another form of “love bombing” and flattery.

  • I have no doubt that if Hillary had won in 2016, the NXIVM case would have been quickly and quietly buried.
    Just like the pedophilia case against Jeffrey Epstein was buried nine years earlier.
    And 77,000 votes would have flipped Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.

    As it stands right now, the government is failing to use the full force of the RICO law to bury NXIVM once and for all.
    NXIVM will rise again only under the control of the Salinas Family which is more disciplined than the Bronfmans, the Salzmans and Raniere.

    • I’m sure reviving NXIVM is #1 on the Salinas family 2019 to-do list. #2 on the list is reenacting the day their beloved family pet died.

        • Assange allegedly committed crimes associated with U.S. citizens. If Mexico allows NXIVM to restart in Mexico, against Mexican citizens, or even American citizens in Mexico, there’s not much the U.S. is going to do about it.

    • You know what shadowboy. I am one of your harshest critics on here. However when you get way from your fanatical obsession with Allison Mack, you make some very accurate and outstanding comments.

    • The Shadow Says: “I have no doubt that if Hillary had won in 2016, the NXIVM case would have been quickly and quietly buried.
      Just like the pedophilia case against Jeffrey Epstein was buried nine years earlier.”

      I’m not defending the Dems (or Bill Clinton who was associated with Epstein)..but the Epstein case was settled in 2007, under Bush, and the US Attorney who corruptly gave him a soft sentence is now the Labor Sec for Trump, who admitted he and Epstein were friends and fellow-pussy hounds.

      Both parties can be corrupt

      • Let’s talk Trump and Epstein.

        In 2007 Trump was not associated with the Republican party.
        Indeed Trump at that time donated lots of money to the Democratic party particularly a Democratic Senator named Hillary Rodham Clinton.

        Moreover a little known fact about Epstein is that he had a business partner named Les Wexner, of Victoria’s Secret.
        Wexner is a Republican.but he dropped his friendship with Epstein after the pedophile scandal.

        Because Epstein’s mansions were equipped with video cameras it is believed that Epstein was running either a blackmail scheme or a brownstone operation for an intelligence agency.

        Lastly in a brand new article from the Daily Beast published on 4-16-2019 it turns out that Epstein is running a private charity called “Gratitude America Inc.” which funnels money to an All Girls School, Harvard University and even Sir Elton John.
        Why is a convicted pedophile like Epstein donating money to an All Girls School?
        Is it a harem or a stale of girls?
        Epstein has lots of protection from very high up in both political parties.

        REVEALED: We Found Billionaire Pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s Secret Charity
        Through a shadowy private foundation, convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has continued to shell out cash to celebrities, elite universities—and an all-girls school

  • You claim that there are still NXIVM supporters out there, and that these supporters believed that the Democrats would pull strings to get Keith released. This part sounds like a fabricated story….even if there were current NXIVM supporters , how would you know that they were cheering for the Democrats?

      • My comment wasn’t about how much money NXIVM donated, it was about how it was possible for Frank to know the following:

        “There were several Raniere supporters who actually rejoiced because they believed that the Democrats in the House would pull strings to get Raniere freed or get a plea deal that would see him walk out of jail with no prison time.”

        If these NXIVM supporters actually do exist, how could Frank know that they believed this?

  • That makes sense since it was a Clinton fundraiser where Kristin Gillibrand was sitting with Nancy Salzman at one of the NXIVM tables.

    • So it’s been reported, anyway – as far as I know there is just one witness, though I’d say he’s relatively credible.

      The other interesting thing from what I can tell, is that NXIVM’s political donations were pretty much limited to 2006-08 campaign cycles, with a few donations in 2005 and 2009, and then nothing after. They seem to have had a big push on, and then for whatever reason gave up. It would be interesting to know the full story behind that, including whatever means they found that did gain or buy them influence.

  • The Bronfmans also spread their money around by at the same time giving to the National Republican Senatorial Committee as well, and their largest donations of $30,000 to a NY State Republican campaign fund – with zero to state or local Democrats. Those big Republican donations may be more closely tied to their obviously successful efforts to gain influence around Albany, shielding NXIVM while getting help in persecuting their enemies.

    • Do you have the names of who those State Republican candidates were that received the donations?

        • That is my point. Political parties are donated to by all types of individuals and corporations. They all play both sides. However Gillibrand and Clinton are mentioned specifically in the Bronfman scheme to get around legal donations.

          Anoymaker is trying to equate general donations to the illegal donations of what Bronfman and Salzman did to skirt campaign finance laws. Typical spin

          • Sorry, I didn’t mean to imply equivalence.

            A lot of this gets spun in a partisan way, when I think it’s indeed just reflective of how people play both sides – and how both sides play the game. I wanted to point out that the Bronfman money that went to Republicans may be less of an obvious scandal, but it’s more of a mystery – and perhaps actually more key to the influence-buying that had an impact on NXIVM’s ability to get away with things, something that I hope won’t get lost in the partisanship.

      • They were just give to the NYS Senate Republican Campaign Committee – the Committee’s bare bones website doesn’t say what money donated is used for, or even what the group does. That was at a point when Republicans were in control of the chamber and Pataki (R) was governor. From LilSis:

        Clare Bronfman:

        NYS Senate Republican Campaign Committee
        • 4 contributions · $21,600 (Mar 16 ’06→Oct 26 ’06)

        Sara Bronfman:

        NYS Senate Republican Campaign Committee
        • 1 contribution · $10,000 (Mar 16 ’06)

        • Of course they donated to the party in power. That is a given Now that the state is a one party machine many donations from all over are given to the State Democrat Campaign committee. Clinton is a specific name and I would like to see more names if they are out there. Of course there is corruption all around.President Trump first had to deball the corrupt republicans before he could focus on the evil globalist democrat machine. Many corrupt republicans in bed with the filthy democrats. Basically until President Trump it has been the uniparty destroying America
