US Attorney Grant Jaquith - a Republican appointee of Donald Trump - does not necessarily have to follow the longstanding tradition of the office of turning a blind eye to the crimes of Bronfman-Raniere.

Pressure Continues to Mount on the NDNY To Do Something

Even before the current trial of Keith Raniere had gotten underway in the U.S. District Court in Brooklyn, NY, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Northern District of New York (NDNY) was already being scrutinized for its failure to do anything for more than two decades to take on Raniere’s crime syndicate.

The current U.S. Attorney for the NDNY is Grant C. Jaquith. He was appointed to that position on January 5, 2018 – well after the EDNY had begun its investigation of Raniere and his criminal cronies (Jaquith served in an acting capacity from July 1, 2017 through January 4, 2018).

Jaquith has reportedly tried to insert his office into the EDNY’s investigation of Raniere and NXIVM/ESP on a couple of occasions. Each time he did so, however, he was emphatically told to back off – and to stay out of the way until the EDNY had finished its work.

Just before the start of the EDNY trial, Jaquith and his staff were handed what could turn out to be a great opportunity to show that their office is no longer afraid of – or under the influence of – Raniere and his minions.

That’s because several of the charges in the EDNY trial were dismissed on jurisdictional grounds – and referred to the NDNY for follow-up.

The specific charges that are now in the hands of the NDNY are as follows:
– Sexual Exploitation Of A Child – Jane Doe 2 (Keith Raniere)
– Sexual Exploitation Of A Child – Jane Doe 2 (Keith Raniere
– Possession Of Child Pornography (Keith Raniere)
– Conspiracy To Commit Identity Theft Regarding Jane Doe 7 (Keith Raniere, Clare Bronfman & Others)

So, at the very minimum, the NDNY has four charges that it can prosecute against Keith Raniere, Clare Bronfman, and others.

And, to make it even easier, all the necessary investigative work – and all the requisite legal pleadings – regarding those four charges have already been completed by the EDNY.

Which means that unless the NDNY is totally incompetent – or totally corrupt – we should expect to see a second NXIVM trial get underway in the U.S. District Courthouse in Albany, NY sometime within the next year or so.

*****
But the second trial certainly does not need to be limited to the four charges that have already been referred to the NDNY.

To begin with, there are all the “predicate acts” that are being used to support the racketeering count in the current trial.

As Frank Report readers know, none of the defendants in the EDNY were actually charged with those crimes. Instead, the existence of those crimes is being used to demonstrate that Raniere and his cronies were engaged in an ongoing pattern of racketeering activity that was connected to the NXIVM enterprise.

The federal RICO statute delineates thirty-five separate offenses that constitute racketeering (e.g., serious crimes such as arson, kidnapping, murder, etc. – and less serious crimes like bribery, mail fraud, and wire fraud). To charge someone under RICO, federal prosecutors must allege that the defendant committed at least two of the listed crimes through a criminal enterprise within a ten year period.

The nineteen predicate acts that were listed in the second superseding indictment are as follows:
1. Conspiracy To Commit Identity Theft Regarding Jane Doe 1 (Keith Raniere & Others);
2. Conspiracy To Unlawfully Possess Identification Documents (Keith Raniere & Others);
3. Sexual Exploitation Of A Child Regarding Jane Doe 2 (Keith Raniere);
4. Sexual Exploitation Of A Child Regarding Jane Doe 2 (Keith Raniere);
5. Possession Of Child Pornography (Keith Raniere);
6. Conspiracy To Commit Identity Theft (Keith Raniere, Clare Bronfman, and Others);
7. Identity Theft Regarding John Doe 1 (Keith Raniere & Others);
8. Identity Theft Regarding John Doe 2 (Keith Raniere, Clare Bronfman & Others);
9. Conspiracy To Alter Records For Use In An Official Proceeding (Keith Raniere & Others);
10. Conspiracy To Commit Identity Theft Regarding Jane Doe 3 (Keith Raniere & Others);
11. Money Laundering (Clare Bronfman & Others);
12. Trafficking Of Jane Doe 4 For Labor And Services (Keith Raniere, Lauren Salzman & Others);
13. Document Servitude Of Jane Done 4 (Keith Raniere, Lauren Salzman & Others)
14. State Law Extortion (Keith Raniere, Allison Mack, Lauren Salzman & Others);
15. Visa Fraud (Clare Bronfman);
16. Sex Trafficking Of Jane Doe 5 (Keith Raniere, Allison Mack & Others);
17. Forced Labor Of Jane Doe 5 (Keith Raniere, Allison Mack & Others);
18. Forced Labor Of Jane Doe 9 (Lauren Salzman & Others); and
19. Conspiracy To Commit Identity Theft (Keith Raniere, Clare Bronfman & Others).

Taking into account the guilty pleas that have already been entered – and making some reasonable assumptions about the details of the plea deals that have were entered into by Clare Bronfman, Allison Mack, Lauren Salzman and Kathy Russell – it’s likely that some/all of the following charges could still be brought against the original defendants in the NDNY:

So, that’s a pretty good list for Grant Jaquith and his staff to get started on.

And, while they will obviously not bring all the listed potential charges against the original defendants, just having them undertake a thorough investigation with respect to those potential charges would be a great first step.

*****
The next step, of course, is to identify who else should be charged in the NDNY with NXIVM-related crimes.

Opinions will certainly differ on this matter – and I think that in the end, the best way to approach this is to think of these other potential defendants in terms of levels or types rather than as individuals.

The first level/type that the NDNY might want to investigate are all the members of Raniere’s so-called “inner-circle” – minus, of course, those who subsequently defected and began providing information to the government (and those who are deceased).

As detailed by the federal prosecutors in Exhibit GX-362 in the Raniere case, that would include the following:
– Daniela Padilla Bergeron
– Alex Betancourt
– Nicki Clyne
– Jim Del Negro
– Monica Duran
– Loreta Garza
– Rosa Laura Junco
– Jack Levy
– Dawn Morrison
– Ivy Nevares
– Emiliano Salinas

Emiliano Salinas & Alex Betancourt
Jim Del Negro head of the High Council

Even though she was not included on the prosecution’s list, I believe that Sara Bronfman certainly deserves to be investigated for the role that she played – and, according to some, still plays – in the NXIVM crime syndicate.

Clare [l] and Sara [r] Bronfman – they belong together in federal prison
*****

The next level/type that the NDNY might want to investigate are the +/- 300 individuals who rose to the level of Coach in the NXIVM crime organization. We have previously published that list of names – and will be happy to provide it to the NDNY.

*****
And, finally, another level/type that the NDNY might want to investigate are all the government officials and law enforcement officials in the Albany, NY area who did nothing to stop Raniere’s 20-year crime wave – or who, in some cases, may have aided and abetted him along the way.

This would include, but not necessarily be limited to, the following:
– P. David Soares: Albany County District Attorney
– Karen A. Heggen: Saratoga County District Attorney
– James A. Murphy III: Saratoga County Court Judge & Former Saratoga County District Attorney
– Richard S. Hartunian: Former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of New York
– Vadim Thomas: Special Agent in Charge of FBI Field Office in Albany, NY
– Andrew Vale: Former Special Agent in Charge of FBI Field Office in Albany, NY
– George P. Beach II: Former Superintendent of the New York State Police
– Rodger Kirsopp: New York State Senior Investigator

*****
As we previously reported, the Times Union has already called upon Jaquith to initiate an investigation into NXIVM’s illegal activities in the Capital District area.

And we’ve now provided a road-map that should help him and his staff to get started on that most important mission.

Now, let’s see what, if anything, actually gets done…

  • So “unless the NDNY is totally incompetent – or totally corrupt – we should expect to see a second NXIVM trial get underway in the U.S. District Courthouse in Albany, NY sometime within the next year or so“? Then basically what you’re realistically saying is that a second NXIVM trial will never get underway at all. Nobody hold their breath waiting.

  • How about the State of New York Attorney General launching a special investigation and prosecution of NXIVM and the NXIVM defendants or would that be asking too much?

    In fact New York State has its own version of RICO for what it calls Enterprise Corruption

    Article 460 – NY Penal Law

    460.20 Enterprise corruption.

    460.22 Aggravated enterprise corruption.

    460.25 Enterprise corruption; limitations.

    460.30 Enterprise corruption; forfeiture.

    460.40 Enterprise corruption; jurisdiction.

    460.50 Enterprise corruption; prosecution.

    460.70 Provisional remedies.

  • Perhaps the DOJ needs to appoint a Special Prosecutor and a Special Team of lawyers and agents to handle the NXIVM case.
    If there are up to 100 criminal defendants in a case an ordinary US Attorney might need some help.
    The regular US Attorney can handle the day to day cases while the Special Prosecutor concentrates on this one massive criminal gang.

  • I’m wondering randomly why the prosecution is using circles in those charts to describe a pyramid scheme. Surely they can afford a pyramid chart in addition at least. With the money Clare’s contributing to have her sentence shrunk?

    Wow.

    • Why don’t they pay for fancy pyramid charts?

      Cuz this ain’t a Hollywood movie, dummy.

      The jury would just be turned off by a glossy, Hollywood-type presentation.

      The Enron defense attorneys used expensively designed charts to impress the jury. But look where it got them.

      Grow a brain and get a clue, Mistress Heidi. 🙂

  • I hate to be the bearer of bad news (okay, I actually enjoy it) but…

    Claviger is WRONG yet again.

    NDNY is most certainly NOT feeling pressure to bring charges against NXIVM.

    Nor are they LIKELY to bring charges once the EDNY trial is over.

    Here’s 6 reality checks for Claviger:

    1) NDNY is a federal agency which doesn’t revolve around Albany politics or local Albany news papers. The US Attorney in charge of NDNY has NO PRESSURE whatsoever to make NXIVM a target. He can ignore NXIVM. This whole news topic will fade way into the sunset once the defendants are sentenced in the EDNY case.

    2) The remaining charges (which could be tried in the NDNY) are difficult and complex cases to win, requiring many months of investigative efforts. The NDNY would have to devote TONS of man hours (and spend millions of dollars) to prosecute people who have ALREADY been prosecuted and sentenced to jail. It’s like whipping a dead horse.

    Contrary to Claviger’s belief, the NDNY can’t just have the EDNY feed them a few boxes of files and be ready for trial in a month, it doesn’t FUCKEN work like that you ASSHOLE! Nor will Penza travel to NDNY to try the cases herself, you dipshit.

    3) Why the FUCK would the NDNY devote huge financial resources (and manpower) towards prosecuting a complex case WHEN most of these people are ALREADY going to fucken jail anyway?

    Again, it’s whipping a dead horse from the NDNY’s perspective.

    4) Truth is, Claviger is telling us tall tales and engaging in wishful thinking. The NDNY will never bring charges once the EDNY case is over.

    5) I’ve consulted with a psychic who agrees with me (this same psychic helped me to predict the winner of a Superbowl).

    6) Claviger is full of shit, as usual, which leads me to believe he’s not a real defense attorney cuz his judgment isn’t very realistic. I’m guessing that he’s a failed trial attorney and is now a personal injury ambulance chaser.

    • Frank, you’re a real pussy for not posting this comment yesterday.

      This comment does NOT abuse any other members.

      Claviger is an Admin here and not a member, just like you, thus he’s fair game for abusive comments according to your own guidelines (you said admins were fair game). 🙂

      You simply hate the TOPIC and POINT OF VIEW of my post.

      Thus, you’re now censoring us for having points of view which piss you off.

      You’re a coward, Frank. I have lost all respect for you, sir. 🙂

      I hope you get ASS CANCER and wind up with Satan’s pitch fork being shoved up your butt. 🙂

  • One question which will need to be answered is “Where is all the money?” I think the FBI would be wise to check for diamonds sewn into Nancy Salzman’s corsets and girdles.

    • Lol. Good one. Bet the pass-the-buck to the Fed’s EGGHEAD’s running the Evil Empire State would like it, too

  • Kim Constable should be investigated too.

    In November 2016 Allison Mack traveled to Belfast and met with Kim Constable, a member of NXIVM who is involved with /Rainbow Cultural Gardens.

    Some people have speculated that this trip could have involved sex trafficking.
    This issue should be investigated by both American and British authorities.

    Picture of Kim Constable and Allison Mack.

  • Simply being on a Coaches list shouldn’t be treated as criminal. Coaches just delivered the Modules in Ethos, and assisted the head trainer in Intensives, and recruited people into a program they had perceived as helpful to themselves. Yes the program was grossly overpriced (Landmark or Tony Robbins are cheaper, a self-help book at the library is free), and their perception of its usefulness was what Rick Ross calls an “engineered epiphany” (Landmark and Tony Robbins do the same thing).

    Even green-sash level people running outside Centers, like Susan Dones or Sarah Edmondson or Mark Vicente, knew little to nothing about the criminality and depravity in Albany. And when they learned, they shut down their Centers and left.

    Getting to Coach level just means someone was bilked out of about $50,000 dollars.

    • I didn’t say that all the NXIVM Coaches committed crimes (I suspect some did – and some didn’t). But I do think that the NDNY investigators should interview as many of those people as possible in order to get a clearer picture of what type of illegal activities were going on in NXIVM. In reality, more than half of the Coaches are in Mexico – which means that they probably won’t be interviewed.

      • And that’s a serious problem you got there…For instance, Allison Mack doesn’t seem like she was really into much of any of the crime…yet
        – Aiding & Abetting : Maybe (but not much based on testimonies) and this also could include all the victims (including people like sylvie)
        – Blackmail : It was only in DOS and she has pleaded so it won’t be trialed twice)
        – Bulk Cash Smuggling : Any proof?
        – Coercion : Same as Blackmail, it’s only in DOS and she pleaded
        – Conspiracy : Conspiracy of what? are you really a lawyer?
        – Criminal Facilitation : hard to prove, she pleaded for the crime they have proved she commited…she is done with that
        – Criminal Mischief : ? which one? the one you pointed (without proofs)?
        – Criminal Nuisance : ?
        – Defrauding the Government : Proof? i Don’t see anything that shows that
        – Extortion :….seriously ! she already pleaded that
        – Fraud: …
        – Harassment : Who? where? proofs?
        – Hazing : …
        – Hindering Prosecution : excuse me? the prosecution was hindering…She was cooperative…
        – Mail Fraud : Proof?
        – Money Laundering : Proof?
        – Obstructing Governmental Administration : Proof?
        – Perjury : Where? when ? Proof? I remind you she hasn’t yet appeared in court…perjury is in front of a judge (in a court, after the oath)
        – Tax Evasion : Proof?
        – Tax Fraud : PrOOF?

        You’re back at your old “accusation without proofs”
        If a NDNY does a trial, it will be on things that can be proved…That means the child sex exploitation and possession of pedopornographic image…
        I also doubt that anyone but Raniere would be charged this time…

    • To me, a key part of the question is how much the corruption in Albany bled out to the far reaches of the organization – typically there are signs of that even on the fringes, though individuals on the periphery may also miss them. I agree with krclaviger, all the coaches at least ought to be questioned to see what they knew of what was going on.

      For instance, did local centers and coaches follow the practice of accepting (and perhaps also sending “uplines”) cash payments, and evading taxes and foreign currency transfer restrictions?

    • Oh no.. they were taught at the least, not to pay taxes and to humiliate and degrade people during EM’s. I will bet my life Christine Collins has never paid a dime in taxes. And she was brought in by Nancy. She’s married to a member. These things should be looked into. Some are still actively promoting and traveling to continue this horrific cult. Make them accountable!

  • you know what was truly radical was that statement from andrew cuomo draped by letitia james chuck schumer sillybland and bill deblazio all PROMISING to get NXIVM erradicated <===anyone have the link to this?

    DO THE RIGHT THING NEW YORK this is child rape trafficking

    • LOL, you think this band of demonic democraps is going to do anything. They are complicit with Raniere as they greased the skids for NXIVM. There will be no justice until all the political hacks and crooked cops are brought to justice for this demonic entity, they enabled and profited from.

      • The people who greased the skids in Raniere’s early days were the Republicans who controlled Albany back then. NXIVM and the Bronfmans were employing the services of D’Amato’s (R) lobbying firm, cozying up to and providing untold benefits to NY state Republican senators (at least one of who was indicted for corruption) – the Bronfmans’ biggest donations went to their campaigns. NXIVM to this day employs a politically-connected Republican firm to represent the company.

        The Bronfmans, typically, played both sides, giving to both Republicans and Democrats, and then later on when Democrats were more influential in Albany, using various of them to continue their scheming. In the end it’s probably a wash, though if you look at their influence efforts in Albany that actually apparently bought them some sort of protection and maybe even favors, the most obvious ties are actually to Republicans.

        To paint it as a partisan issue is to ignore the real problem of systemic influence-peddling and corruption. And it is, ironically, also the same sort of culty, us-against-them, conspiratorially-tinged thinking that Raniere’s followers engaged in.

        • “To paint it as a partisan issue is to ignore the real problem of systemic influence-peddling and corruption.”

          Now you’re talking. Who says you’re a plant? Coulda fooled me. Always admired your writing style if we don’t always agree. You still owe me a dinner but I may bring a taste tester. Lol. How’d you know about my brother(s)? That’s some seriously motivated research skill! Even if you really are way too far left-leaning at heart. Stay centered!

          • Heidi, I’m a centrist who often gets pegged by partisans one one side, as being a partisan of the other.

            It is the case that when someone takes a very partisan position, I may challenge it. Here, those really pushing blatantly or even bitterly partisan agendas, such as where they refer to the other side with derogatory names and slurs, mostly skew right, so I’m mostly deconstructing those sorts of positions. I’ve realized that I need to be more explicitly clear that my issue is actually with the corrupt politics of both sides, though this isn’t the first time I’ve referenced the systemic problems, or that the Bronfmans playing the typical game of giving money to both sides.

            p.s. I haven’t forgotten about dinner, I’ve even been holding off on a trip to the city to see if you were going to come for some of the trial.

          • Interesting that Mexico is on page 53, the #38 ranked worst country, and it’s primarily Christian. We need to give Raniere more time to fix this problem. I suggest we turn him loose on the cartels in order to convince them they are not integrated.

        • The Bronfmans also employed Roger Stone and Franf Parlato for public relations jobs, both of them pro republicans if I’m correct. The morons who tries to portray NXVIM as a democrat–liberal organisation are really stupid ideologists unables to admit the truth, to grounded in their retarded conpiracy theories.

          • here is a RETARDED {hate this word} conspiracy theory

            WHERE THE FUCK IS NYS LEADERSHIP NOW>>>>>>>>?????crickets so fuck off

            NYS is a cesspool stop pointing fingers its a uniparty and we AINT in it

            when i threaded the question to the link hey THERE ARE OUR LEADERS if i a nobody who knew nothing about NXIVM know about NXIVM where the fuck ARE THEY??????

            STUFF CUOMO!!!!<==== and sillyblandblind who lied and said she never heard of nxivm and then a day later offered a correction due to confusion about the question?

            child rape trafficking and not a peep ……unacceptable!!!!

          • Stone was in for a brief moment. He saw what a scam it was and got the hell out. New York has been a one party state since 2007. The buck stops at the Governor and the AG. The New York Department of Revenue has also looked the other way as they are corrupt. Albany New York is a corrupt Democrat run hellhole. NXIVM was enabled by that democrat cabal. All the lies do not change that reality.

          • Most of the upper tier women in NXIVM were extremely liberal. No surprise as they are extremely easy to brainwash.

          • How do you explain that liberals were not the ones brainwashed by Trump’s obvious bullshit?

          • Liberals are dumber than a box of rocks. Hillary and Obama knew that and baffled them with bullshit. President Trump is doing a damn god job of delivering. Sorry that you suffer from liberalism, which is clearly a mental disorder. No wonder Raniere found you to be an easy mark

        • Can you prove that bullshit claim. Of course not. The cover ups and the skids being greased lead right to the higher up democrats who ran the New York AG as well as your boy Andy Cuomo Your lies are going to continue to be exposed.

          Love the soft money Old man Bronfman fed the Clintons. Of course his daughter continued the tradition with her illegal money. Wonder how much of the illegal donation money from Bronfman that Andy and his Albany cabel recieved. In a one party state that is easy to hide…..for now

          Edgar Bronfman Jr. and Edgar Bronfman Sr.
          CONTRIBUTIONS | HARD MONEY 16,600 | SOFT MONEY 710,000 | CLINTON FOUNDATION: 10K to 15K
          Shortly after the billionaire businessman Edgar Bronfman Sr. died in 2013, Hillary Clinton spoke at a memorial service in his honor. She described a meeting she had arranged in 1996 between her husband and Bronfman, who then owned the liquor company Seagram and Son, which she said lead to years of negotiation over the return of Holocaust assets held by Swiss Banks. “He exuded a confidence and honesty that won him the friendship and support of Presidents and Popes and people everywhere,” Clinton said of the former president of the World Jewish Congress. His son, Edgar Bronfman Jr., has continued his legacy of political giving, making it difficult to distinguish their donations in federal records. The campaign donation totals above include both men.

          • Sorry to be slow to get back to this, I was away from my computer that has the notes on it about things like NY State Senator Bruno (R) who the Bronfmans gave favors like private jet rides, reportedly some services from individual members, and possibly some of the under-the-table money that got him indicted for corruption. He may also be tied to the Bronfman’s biggest donations, the multiple $10,000 contributions to the mysterious NYS Republican Senate Campaign Fund that looks like something of a slush fund, and that no one has ever been able to explain.

            By all appearances the Bronfman girls have long been on the outs with their half-siblings, and were on shaky ground with their father for the last decade of his life, so I don’t think that the family’s political giving is in any way connected. But even if you do look at Edgar Bronfman, Jr., his second largest donations were to the RNC Republican National State Elections Committee:

      • we totally agree on this abdul….i have to suffer these idiots they never really let us vote you know its so rigged up the voters mean less than zero these days ….and ps anyone who is anyone knows nys runs thru alphonse d’mato and he is no democrap

  • There a lot of laws in the US. There are layers in abundance. I just hope there is enough *justice* to bring the NXIVM/DOS nightmare to a fitting conclusion. Claire Bronfman, who is 100% evil, with no redeeming qualities, deserves a long prison sentence. But America being what is, she’ll likely end up with a sentence that doesn’t dent her finances, or involve much discomfort. It won’t go so well for Allison Mack though. because she’s no longer wealthy or famous,

  • Why would you use an outdated coaches list, ignoring anyone who was or became a coach over the last 7-8 years. Seems like the 2017 coach list would be a better place to start, working down from the highest ranked. Or since you seem to want to go after anyone who was ever a coach, why would you ignore coaches from the first 10-12 years of NXIVM and what about the likes of Keefe and Unterreiner, who Frank called evil women, do they get a pass for all the crimes they committed?

    • Every one of my submitted posts with the “K” word in it has not been posted since editing began and I know why bc I know “K” a lot better than Frank thinks he does and he’s being pussy whipped to the bone by her.

      Who helped lure Frank in and deftly, I imagine, “handled” him all the while he temporarily prospered and did not want in any other regard during his stay at Clare’s stables? He can hope there’s no collateral on him.

      And despite all Frank’s done to protect her and her son she will never let on to a fraction of what she knows that implicates her until she’s confronted by investigators under real threat of taking the stand under oath for a reality check on cross-examination.

      The fact that she did not appear as a witness in this trial is probably owing to the fact she knows far too much about not only NX but it’s posse of public servants who sucked KAR’s dick harder (and with less coercion) than any of the brainwashed babes — or children he defiled — ever did.

      And worst case scenario it spells mistrial when the buried truth comes out and it will over my dead body, if necessary.

  • “The next level/type that the NDNY might want to investigate are the +/- 300 individuals who rose to the level of Coach in the NXIVM crime organization.”

    Being a coach, in itself, would make one guilty of what crime?

    Unless the coach did tax evasion, money laundering etc, he/she would not be a criminal.
