VERDICT IMMINENT – Does Not Bode Well for Vanguard

Keith Alan Raniere is presently residing at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, NY.

Frank Report has just learned that the jury in the case of the U.S. v Raniere has reached its verdict in the case – and will be brought back into the courtroom at 2:30 PM to make the announcement. We will be providing an update as soon as possible but, given the numerous charges involved in this case, this does not bode well for Keith Alan Raniere AKA The Vanguard AKA Master AKA Grandmaster.

Normally, in this type of complex case involving multiple charges, the longer the jury is out, the more likely that the defendant will be found innocent – at least on some counts. But with this type of quick turnaround – less than 5 hours of deliberations – it will be shocking if this is not a “GUILTY ON ALL COUNTS” verdict.

Viva Executive Success!

  • Why is the mini vanguard who ruined as many lives as Raniere, James Del Negro, still out there recruiting? Go, Frank – go get him next. He is truly a smiling demon.

  • “My dream…
    June 18, 2019 at 7:38 am
    Strawman poll as soon as they begin to deliberate… unanimous guilty on all counts… a little time to chat to make it look good… and done. Everyone goes home happy (even Mark A since he’ll soon be making $ off the appeals) except for Keith. Keith throws a temper tantrum. Good-night, end of story”

    I’m waiting for word of the temper tantrum.

  • And that’s the power of the jury system. In a civil law jurisdiction, with all Agnifilo’s deliberations ‘what’s the crime here?’ that appeal to professionals (lawyers) Raniere could reasonably expect even an acquittal. But with the working people of Brooklyn – no. I suppose class animosity, as in ‘The Bonfire of the Vanities’ of Tom Wolfe, did play a role here, too. The jury probably thinks that all of them – Salzmans, Bronfman, Mack – are guilty as hell.

  • Pins and needles over here. I keep refreshing Robert Gavin’s twitter feed. It’s been 20min. Come ON already!

    • “Will the rabbit hole now open up?”

      That’s an important question.
      It would be easy for America’s elite to wipe their hands and say the dirty work is done but they forget about all of the scandals like Jeffrey Epstein where prominent pedophiles with political connections go scot-free.
      And no one wants to pry too deeply into ties between NXIVM and prominent politicians in New York State or Mexico.

      It’s easy to make Raniere the scapegoat for all of the sins of NXIVM if it helps other wrongdoers avoid justice.
      Raniere would never have been able to wreak so much havoc over twenty years without a lot of help from a lot of people.

  • Under a post yesterday titled Verdict, I predicted a verdict in a day. Happy Vangone day, one and all!!!!

  • Wow!!! Incredible. Poor little Keith barely had enough time to finish his lunchables and he’ll be back in court for the verdict. Break a leg Keith!!! Buoahahahahahahahahhhhhhaaaa!!!

    • Your handle name suggests that either you were a part of this cult, or
      your spell check auto-corrected itself from NXIVM to Former Nexian Omar.. If not, what is Nexian?
