Geragos Expected to Testify Against Avenatti – and Spared Indictment

A superseding indictment has been unsealed against celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti in the Nike extortion case – which will postpone his trial – previously scheduled to start this month – until January.

Nike, a multinational, publicly held corporation headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon, produces and markets athletic apparel, footwear, and equipment – and sponsors athletic teams in many sports at the high school, amateur, collegiate, and professional levels.

The key change in the superseding indictment versus the original is that the conspiracy charge against Avenatti was dropped.

This tells us that his partner in the extortion case, celebrity lawyer Mark Geragos, is off the hook. In the original indictment, Geragos was referred to as an unnamed co-conspirator.

The dropping of the conspiracy charges almost certainly means Geragos will testify against Avenatti. It also means Geragos likely made a deal to avoid criminal charges in return for his testimony.

Geragos’ testimony against Avenatti, especially their private discussions leading up to and during the alleged extortion attempt, will help prove intent and make this a stronger case against Avenatti.

This may, however, severely damage Geragos’ reputation – for he certainly seems to have been part of the alleged extortion plan.

The superseding indictment has three counts.  It drops the conspiracy charges but adds a count of wire fraud to the extortion and fraud charges. The indictment is in the Southern District of New York.

In brief, here is what the case is about:

In March 2019, Avenatti was contacted by Gary Franklin, the director and head coach of an amateur youth basketball program based in California.

On March 5, Avenatti met with Franklin. Franklin told Avenatti that, for years, his basketball program had a sponsorship agreement with Nike which paid Franklin’s program $72,000 annually. Franklin wanted Nike to reinstate its annual sponsorship.

Franklin provided Avenatti with information regarding what Franklin believed to be misconduct by certain employees of Nike involving the alleged funneling of illicit payments from Nike to families of certain highly-ranked high school basketball prospects.

Avenatti told his client he believed he would be able to obtain a $1 million settlement from Nike.

On March 19, 2019, Nike’s lawyers met with Avenatti in New York City.

Avenatti told them that his client, Franklin, had evidence that Nike employees authorized and funded payments to families of top high school basketball players and attempted to conceal those payments, similar to illegal conduct involving a competitor of Nike that had recently been the subject of a criminal investigation by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.

Avenatti said he intended to hold a press conference the following day to publicize the misconduct at Nike.  Avenatti said he knew the annual NCAA men’s college basketball tournament – an event of great significance to Nike and its brand – was about to begin, and because he was aware that Nike’s quarterly earnings call was scheduled for March 21, 2019 – his press conference would maximize potential financial and reputational damage to Nike.

Avenatti said he would refrain from holding that press conference if Nike agreed to pay $1.5 million to Franklin as settlement for any claims Franklin might have and if Nike hired Avenatti and Geragos to conduct an internal investigation of Nike.

After the meeting, representatives of Nike contacted the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.

On March 20, 2019, Nike’s lawyers spoke with Avenatti and Geragos on a conference call, which was recorded by law enforcement.

Avenatti said he expected to “get a million five for our guy” [Franklin] and be “hired to handle the internal investigation,” adding, “if you don’t wanna do that, we’re done.”

Avenatti said on the recorded call, “I’m not fucking around with this, and I’m not continuing to play games. You guys know enough now to know you’ve got a serious problem. And it’s worth more in exposure to me to just blow the lid on this thing. A few million dollars doesn’t move the needle for me. I’m just being really frank with you. So if that’s what, if that’s what is being contemplated, then let’s just say it was good to meet you, and we’re done. And I’ll proceed with my press conference tomorrow. I’m not fucking around with this thing anymore. So if you guys think that you know, we’re gonna negotiate a million five, and you’re gonna hire us to do an internal investigation, but it’s gonna be capped at 3 or 5 or 7 million dollars, like let’s just be done.  And I’ll go and I’ll go take ten billion dollars off your client’s market cap. But I’m not fucking around.”

Avenatti also said that an internal investigation of conduct at a company like Nike could be valued at “tens of millions of dollars, if not hundreds,” saying, “let’s not bullshit each other… We all know what the reality of this is,” adding that while he did not expect to be paid $100 million, he did expect to be paid more than $9 million.

Avenatti then agreed to meet with Nike’s Counsel in person the following day, Thursday, March 21, the date of Nike’s scheduled quarterly earnings call and the beginning of the NCAA tournament, to present the exact amount he wanted from Nike and under what terms it would have to be paid.

On March 21, Avenatti and Geragos met with Nike’s lawyers in New York. That meeting was secretly video and audio-recorded by law enforcement [with the consent of Nike’s lawyers].

At the beginning of the meeting, at the direction of law enforcement, one of Nike’s lawyers said he did not believe that a payment to Avenatti’s client Franklin would be the “sticking point,” but that the lawyer needed to know more about the proposed “internal investigation.”

Avenatti said he would need a $12 million retainer to be paid immediately and that would be “deemed earned when paid,” with a minimum guarantee of $15 million in billings and a maximum of $25 million, “unless the scope changes.”

Nike’s lawyer said he never received a $12 million retainer from Nike and had never done an investigation for Nike “that breaks $10 million.”

Avenatti asked if he ever “held the balls of the client in your hand where you could take five, six billion dollars in market cap off of ’em?”

During the meeting, Avenatti said an “internal investigation” could benefit Nike by allowing Nike to “self-report” to law enforcement any alleged misconduct, and that it would be Nike’s choice whether to disclose such alleged illegalities or not.

One of Nike’s lawyers said, again at the direction of law enforcement, that he did not think paying Avenatti’s client $1.5 million would be a “stumbling block,” but asked whether there would be any way to avoid Avenatti carrying out his threatened press conference without Nike retaining Avenatti.

Avenatti said that he did not think it made sense for Nike to pay Franklin an “exorbitant sum of money in light of his role in this.”

Avenatti added, “If [Nike] wants to have one confidential settlement and we’re done, they can buy that for twenty-two and half million dollars and we’re done. Confidentiality; we [Avenatti and Geragos] ride off into the sunset.”

Avenatti added, “I just wanna share with you what’s gonna happen if we don’t reach a resolution.”

Avenatti then laid out his plan for a press conference, adding that, “as soon as this becomes public, I’m gonna receive calls from all over the country from parents and coaches and friends and all kinds of people, because this is always what happens – and they are all going to say I’ve got an email or a text message or now, 90% of that is going to be bullshit because it’s always bullshit 90% of the time. Always. Whether it’s R. Kelly or Trump, the list goes on and on – but 10% of it is actually going to be true. And then what’s going to happen is, this will snowball… and every time we get more information, that’s gonna be the Washington Post, the New York Times, ESPN, a press
conference, and the company will die – not die, but they are going to incur cut after cut after cut after cut, and that’s what’s going to happen as soon as this thing becomes public.”

At the end of the meeting, Avenatti agreed to meet at NIke’s lawyers’ office on Monday, March 25, 2019, to hear whether Nike was willing to make the payments.  Avenatti said Nike would have to agree to his demands at that meeting or he would hold his press conference, saying “If this is not papered on Monday, we’re done. I don’t want to hear about somebody on a bike trip. I don’t want to hear that somebody has, that somebody’s grandmother passed away or the dog ate my homework, I don’t want to hear; none of it is going to go anywhere unless somebody was killed in a plane crash. It’s going to go zero, no place with me.”

After that meeting, where Nike’s lawyers essentially said they would pay Avenatti’s client the $1.5 million he wanted, but did not agree yet to pay Avenatti, he did not bother to tell Franklin.  Yet, he still planned to use the confidential information his client gave him.

Within approximately two hours after the meeting, Avenatti in what could be viewed as a warning to Nike tweeted – referring to a prior prosecution by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York involving employees of Adidas, a competitor of Nike:

“Something tells me that we have not reached the end of this scandal. It is likely far far broader than imagined … College basketball corruption trial: ExAdidas exec sentenced to nine months in … &”

On March 25,  Avenatti learned that law enforcement had approached Franklin.  He evidently smelled a rat – in the form of Nike’s lawyers or Nike themselves.  Avenatti posted a message on Twitter announcing he was holding the press conference:

“Tmrw at 11 am ET, we will be holding a press conference to disclose a major high school/college basketball scandal perpetrated by @Nike that we have uncovered. This criminal conduct reaches the highest levels of Nike and involves some of the biggest names in college basketball.”

Perhaps still thinking he could get the money from Nike, Avenatti went to the office complex of Nike’s lawyers in Manhattan for their scheduled meeting.

Before he got there, he was arrested by the FBI.


Avenatti came to fame after he represented adult film star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against President Donald Trump.

He also represented a woman who made accusations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

He briefly represented Nxivm leader and Seagram’s heiress Clare Bronfman, who retained him to go after this writer and in her Nxivm criminal case. Avenatti and Geragos attempted to negotiate a plea deal for Bronfman in exchange for providing evidence of criminal activities on another, unrelated matter [possibly Nike] to the feds.

In addition to the Nike extortion charges, Avenatti has also been indicted in California and New York on federal charges accusing him of stealing from his clients – including Stormy Daniels. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

  • It’s pretty dumb for Avenasty to tweet his extortion attempt to a billion people.

    Somewhere out there, the Teflon Don is laughing… Fuggitaboutit. He eight no wiseguy

  • Avenatti, another one that will probably end up dead in a cell before the victims get their case heard.

    What an absolute scum bag. Water finds its own level, Geragos is a known scumbag.

  • Re Roger Stone guilty verdict:

    The politically motivated prosecution of Roger Stone is like the impeachment of Bill Clinton for lying about a blow job under oath; or the following attempted prosecution of Linda Tripp, by the Maryland legislature. Politically motivated prosecutions only tear away at the fabric of our great nation.

    The prosecution of Roger Stone is a political prosecution and not one where a “true criminal has been prosecuted”.

    One side of America will see this prosecution as a win against Trump.

    The other half of America will see this prosecution of Roger Stone as a miscarriage of justice and deplorable.

    Personally, I believe prosecuting an older man for the charges he has been accused of to be a ridiculous endeavor. Roger Stone is no threat to the public or democracy. He is now likely to die in prison, considering his life expectancy will be cut short by the 3rd world conditions at Federal prisons.

    After Bill Clinton was tripped up by Kenneth Starr, President Trump would have to be insane to be subpoenaed or tricked into giving testimony.

    No rationale or patriotic person should be happy about the Roger Stone guilty verdict.

    • Of course YOU would think Roger Stone is innocent.
      To better understand the type of person Roger is- just read some of his actual comments (made thru his personal SM accounts and personal email) directed towards anyone who questioned him.

      In his comments, Roger referred to women as stupid, ugly, ignorant bitches….told a female journalist to ” go fuck yourself”….he called Bill Palmer (who reports on politics) a “piece of human excrement”….and that’s just a small sample.

      It’s pretty clear that Roger was aware that these people had evidence that incriminated him- that’s why he lashed out at them in such a childish manner.

      Not sure why you think this is normal behaviour for anyone, “Niceguy”. If you really do condone it, then perhaps you should drop the “nice” part…..🤔

      • Sounds like Roger Stone speaks to people in much the same manner as you address other commenters here at the Frank Report, Flowers. Last time time I checked being an asshole wasn’t a crime and that’s a good thing for your continued freedom. 🌺

          • Flowers seems to be projecting into other people today. She is most likely entering a period of personal transference with her present counselor or psychologist. She is acting out. I feel we should all show Flowers some sensitivity.

          • Lol. So, if I say that I think Roger Stone broke the law and therefore deserved his conviction, that means I’m projecting? So, I guess, if I’m projecting, then it means I’m really the one who broke the law?.Is that how it works?

            Wow….so many millions of people must be PROJECTING lately…..will there be enough therapists to help us all? Thats a valid concern!

          • These are just a few found after only a minute or two. Do you need more? 🌺

            Hey there Moronic Fucktard
            Nice of you to write yet another post based entirely on assumptions, including the incorrect assumption I wrote the post you replied to.
            I didn’t, but I did write 2 other posts today which do have my name on them. So if you want to criticize the ones I actually did write, my then I’ll reply back to you.
            Good luck, MF, though I’m bettING that you’re going to need a lot more than luck, soon.

            ShadowState & Scott
            Any opinions on why Heidi H. is following Cruella Bronfman on twitter.
            It seems a strange choice, all things considered.
            Any comments, Heidi?

            September 22, 2018 at 4:34 pm
            You’re so lady-like, Heidi.
            I bet you’re a real knockout in heels and a dress…since trannies are so popular with you rats.
            No answer to my question, eh?
            I wonder who you really are?

            September 22, 2018 at 5:43 pm
            Explain yourself, cowardly liar…..
            Oh yeah.. you can’t !
            Too funny.
            What “story” did I make up, Loon-onymous? That she ‘s following the evil one on Twitter?
            That a fact, loony one, not a story.
            Check it out for yourself if you don’t believe me.

            This was to Heather who at this point stopped using her name due to abuse but had the same avator

            September 27, 2018 at 7:24 pm
            Why would I waste my time on a lying troll?
            Just pointing out your lies and pettiness, since you’re too cowardly to own your own behaviour.

            September 27, 2018 at 9:07 pm
            Fuck off TWAT. I wasn’t talking to you, turd.
            I can see why you support rapists like Brett, as you both cant understand the word NO. I guess you’re another entitled, little rich spoiled frat boy.
            I hope the next woman you harass hauls off and slaps the smirk right off of your ugly face.
            I have empathy for real victims, not lying trolls like you and Heather (who are probably one and the same)
            How many aliases so you have, rape- boy?.
            I bet you’re a pedophile, too. Perverts like you usually are.

            Again to Heather

            September 27, 2018 at 11:44 pm
            How am I stalking you, crazy? WTF are you talking about now? You can’t even remember what you posted about me yesterday.

            The following was not directed at Heather

            November 1, 2018 at 2:30 pm
            Well, anonymous, so far today I’ve been able to stop at least 20 ball-sucking incidents from occurring. And that was just today….think of how many I can prevent during a whole week? What have you done today, anon, besides not understand some very simple sarcasm? Or pretend not to, is probably more like it.
            Happy trolling, anon and Mr. Ballsucker.

          • There’s no doubt Flowers is projecting and she may not have committed any criminal offences but surely she could be brought to justice through a civil proceeding. It’s well known just by reading her comments she’s broken many of the conventions of polite society and lacks civility when communicating with anyone who disagrees with her opinion.

          • Dahlia, most of my comments there dont use insulting names, and the ones that do were directed at people who had insulted me first….(which you would see if you read back to see why I wrote those particular comments)
            Or, do you think it’s okay for certain people to write insulting comments, but not okay for certain people to respond back to them? Hmmmm.

            You should check out Robert Morrow’s (Roger Stone’s co-author and former friend) recent podcast about Stone, if you want to hear a little about the real Roger Stone.

          • Projection
            After Frank’s trolls have called Sultan a million racist names, and have repeatedly called Shadow a creepy perverted stalker , you think insulting a person who defends rapists is a reason to sue?
            Hire a lawyer then.

          • Most woman will not be “nice” to people who support rapists and who lie about the victims. ….

      • Flowers,

        I have never said I was a fan of Rogers Stone. I have never stated I condone his actions or behavior. I clearly stated I believe he is being politically prosecuted. Hardly anyone has been prosecuted for lying to congress.

        Only Six people have been prosecuted for lying to congress in 58 years!

        Flowers regarding Roger Stone’s comments you say the following:

        “In his comments, Roger referred to women as stupid, ugly, ignorant bitches….told a female journalist to ” go fuck yourself”….he called Bill Palmer (who reports on politics) a “piece of human excrement”….and that’s just a small sample.”-Flowers
        You are denigrating a man for being ill mannered.
        Flowers, I am sorry, but being a rude asshole is not a crime. Roger is an asshole. Being an asshole is not a capital crime. Therefore…….
        …..Flowers all of your arguments are moot!

        Do you actually know the facts of the case?

        Flowers you should do some research.

        Did you know that Roger’s testimony to Congress was the catalyst?

        Flowers here is a starting point for your research….

        ….. “In a 2007 study, author P.J. Meitl found that “[a]lmost no one is prosecuted for lying to Congress.” Indeed, he found only six people convicted of perjury or related charges in relation to Congress, going back to the 1940s.”

        Flowers you need to separate your emotions from the facts; Only then can we have a lucid meaningful dialogue.

        “OMG Roger acted childish he lashed out because he is guilty, guilty people always lash out!”

        BTW: Flowers innocent people lash out to. You do it all the time……

        …..Then again maybe you are a guilty liar? You do lash out. 😉

        • ‘Lashing out” (as you refer to it) by providing true facts to contradict someone who is lying about you, is not the same as Roger calling someone an ignorant, ugly bitch because he didn’t like the truth that was being reported.

          Though it is quite amusing that Roger managed to incriminate himself in that particular incident… in fact, the prosecution used Roger’s own vile tweet as evidence against him.

          So “””Niceguy””” are you trying to claim that the prosecution is stupid, or that they lied about the facts and/or fabricated evidence? Are you claiming the jury members were stupid or corrupt, and that’s why they found him guilty?
          Give me a break….


          • Flowers,

            I am not claiming anything. I am stating that the prosecution was more along the lines of a political persecution.

            Politically or religiously motivated people are not stupid because of their beliefs. I am not claiming the jury or prosecution are stupid. Those are your words not mine. I have not called anyone “stupid”. Humans are tribal. You are acting like contrarian in a passive aggressive way. Why are you so defensive?

          • Pointing out the facts is not the same as defensiveness.
            You claim that Roger was unfairly convicted , so the flip side of that is that you must then believe the prosecution and the jury were inept or corrupt in order to ” fairly” convict him..

        • Flowers,

          “You claim that Roger was unfairly convicted”- Flowers

          Flowers I said, “prosecuted”.

          Did you read the following paragraph…….”In a 2007 study, author P.J. Meitl found that “[a]lmost no one is prosecuted for lying to Congress.” Indeed, he found only six people convicted of perjury or related charges in relation to Congress, going back to the 1940s”? The federal government can show an incredible amount of discretion when it wants to.

          Flowers, it is possible for parties in a dispute or even a criminal trial like with the Roger Stone prosecution and to have people behave logically and honesty and still do the wrong thing.

          A perfect example of what I am arguing would be the arrest and conviction of the man jogging along at 10:30 at night on a trail. The man stops on the trail to pee and is arrested. The man unknowingly peed within 300 feet of an elementary school. A police officer witnessed the man peeing and arrested him. The DA prosecuted the man. The jury found the man guilty.

          Everyone involved in the conviction of the man followed the law honestly. There was no corruption.
          Should the man have been prosecuted when clearly school was out and it was at night? Only the police officer and the jogger were in the area. The cop was in the school’s back parking lot near a park.

          Should the jogger have been prosecuted?

          The jogger is not innocent: he peed and exposed himself within a school zone.

          • So, you think Roger was unfairly prosecuted, but that he was fairly convicted? I’m not sure how you can believe both….

      • Flowers,

        I am now leaving Louis Carroll’s rabbit hole. I know you are lonely.

        Hopefully, your younger lover Bangkok will return soon… 😉

        • Niceguy, I agree Flowers must be very lonely but I see it as a direct result of her actions and the way she interacts with others so I have no compassion for her. If she’d only treat others as she wishes to be treated life could be a whole lot better for that petulant petal. The argument used to justify her comments that she was only acting in kind is laughable since she misconstrues comments as being abusive toward her at roughly the rate of 95%. She believes the world is out to get her and she can be as rude as she likes but others should allows defer to her. Good luck with that one Flowers 🌺

          • And your assumption rate is close to 100%.
            The ” world” is not out to get me (though you obsessed criminals trolls do rule the internet, you are not the world…), but it’s quite apparent that you, Projection/Dahlia/Agenda/So many aliases, are determined to harass me.
            Your attempts to intimidate me are incredibly transparent and unbelievably childish.
            If you really thought you could sue me, why did you not follow thru?

            BTW, my comments to your Heather alias were made after “Heather” told me I was wrong about how the US border guards operate at the Peace Arch crossing, and that I was lying when I said I had often crossed the border there. Then she claimed she couldn’t remember saying that. Hmmmm.

          • Dahlia,

            I always have to remind myself of the Flowers trap. I answer her questions with a honest genuine response and she always twist everything and insults me/everyone else…..And then claims she is the victim. 🙂

            Thank you for your kind words!

          • We allow your delusions flowers, folk here have tried everything: compassionate enquiry, offers of help if you let us know WHO is supposedly ‘harassing’ you, gentle humour, not-so-gentle humour.

            Please leave Heather alone now, its been a while since she was commenting here and when she was your were inexcusably foul to her, why? because at the time you were convinced that neither she or her illness, nor Heidi were ‘real’? you’ve had to eat humble pie over that, No? or are you still convinced that these people are fictional characters dreamt up by your tormentors and therefore deserve YOUR continual harassment?

          • Venus….you “allow” my “delusions”? Thats a very amusing comments. First, why do you think you are in control of the comments, and that you allow which comments are posted?

            Second, don’t you realize that making claims that someone is delusional are a very common gaslighting technique?…and since you have absolutely no personal knowledge of my situation, your malicious intent is clear.

            Obviously I must already know the names of my harassers, since as I mentioned previously they tried to intimidate me with a lawsuit… think about that. I guess everyone who has seen the documents, etc, are all delusional too?

        • Flowers,

          “Your attempts to intimidate me…”

          No one is trying to intimidate you. Who is threatening you? Seriously?

          I doubt the Frankreport would allow anyone to threaten any individual commentor.

          No one is intimidating you.

          I am again leaving the Flower Trap rabbit hole. 🌑🐰

          Good bye!!!! 🌸

          • Niceguy,
            As I already mentioned, the people who tried to scare and intimidate me with a bogus lawsuit, and who have a habit of trolling SM sites, are reading this forum. I know they are, because they admitted to it.

          • How appropriate that a thread on the filthy degenerate Avenatti is reduced to two of the biggest phonies on the Frank Report arguing over who is the bigger hypocrite.

          • Here’s what I think; for what it’s worth. Flowers keeps talking about a bogus lawsuit being used to intimidate her but I think someone was acting to protect themselves against Flowers. I think Flowers does everything she’s accused others of doing just as she’s done here at Frank Report since she started posting comments. I believe she’ll do just about anything to feed her own delusions because, whatever her truth may be, it’s something she’s either unwilling or unable to face. The fact that she has stubbornly refused to acknowledge how she mistreated Heather Anne is the red flag waving brightly in the wind. She now says Heather was fake. I think not. She just can’t accept she abused a dying woman who had to spend some of her last days defending herself against Flowers’ abusive attacks on her integrity.

    • What Trump is doing. First, he will NOT pardon Stone but he will only continue to draw attention to it (at least publicly). Why? Because Trump thinks long term, he thinks strategically. That is how he got so rich after all.

      Why would he do this? First and foremost, if Trump pardoned Stone, it could lead to Trump being removed via impeachment and even if it doesn’t, it would be terrible optics that could cost him re-election. A huge loss for Trump.

      Secondly, by simply drawing attention to it, it will allow Stone to successfully appeal the conviction. It will expose the corruption of the judge in the case and the larger corruption in the judiciary. It will also expose the corrupt judge selection process that allows the same few judges to get all of the most important cases and thwart justice at every turn. After enough is exposed, we will suddenly learn about secret investigations of these judges that have been occurring all along. This will lead to Stone’s judge (and probably many others) being removed. Of course, this will create more judicial appointments for Trump. A big win for Trump.

  • Well, of course. Geragos knows how to play the game more smoothly than the hyena, Avenatti could ever hope to even be enlisted into this highstakes bull-plopping. Geragos hasn’t evinced evidence of coke rages, beating up women or robbing Peter to pay Paul. Smoother operator.

  • In a politically charged trial with a biased, corrupt judge and jury Trump’s confidant Roger Stone was railroaded by a Kangaroo Court.

    Donald Trump had better wake up and realize that the corrupt Deep State is gunning for him.
    Pardon Roger Stone Now!

    Pardon Julian Assange Now!
    Pardon Edward Snowden Now!

    Roger Stone, confidant of Trump and WikiLeaks connection, found guilty on all seven counts
    The GOP operative was charged with making false statements, obstruction and witness tampering tied to his pursuit of Russian-hacked emails in 2016.

    Your comments reflect the despicable nature of your character, hate & fear of our foreign service officers & desperation to protect your corrupt & criminal acts. Your efforts to intimidate will fail. May your downfall be swift, your penalty onerous, & your legacy condemned by all

      • Stupid comment by Brennen. The communist spy master is one of the masterminds behind the coup. He is going to hang for treason against the United States. His desperation and panic is showing with every sick tweet. You are very stupid to even support the treasonous bastard.

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

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.” In addition, he was credited in the Starz docuseries 'Seduced' for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

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. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.
