The Nxivm-5 Go on CBS Morning to Defend Raniere; Vicente Responds to Clyne on Twitter

The Nxivm-5 – Nicki Clyne, Michele Hatchette, Suneel Chakravorty, Marc Elliot, and Eduardo Asunsolo, AKA ‘We Are the Forgotten Ones, AKA ‘Make Justice Blind’ –appeared on CBS This Morning with Nikki Batiste.

This is the same group that has announced they “suspect” the prosecutors of criminal conduct in their prosecution of their master Keith Alan Raniere.  They have presented prosecutors with what they call an “affidavit” (it’s really a questionnaire) requiring them to swear that they did not commit prosecutorial misconduct, tamper with evidence or intimidate witnesses – and have demanded the prosecutors individually fill these documents out and return them by Wednesday.
The prosecutors are not under any legal obligation to comply with the request.
This appearance by the Nxivm-5 is part of the campaign to excite public interest in their movement to “expose” the alleged malicious prosecution of Raniere and to make arguments that he is innocent.
The gist of their argument in this interview seems to be that the prosecution used Keith’s sex life to prejudice the jury and dirty him up, which as Michele said “is nobody’s business.”
In the interview, both Clyne and Hatchette admit to being members of DOS.
Batiste asks Clyne and Hatchette if they were branded and if they had sex with Raniere.
They declined to answer.
Whistleblower Mark Vicente thinks it is a little late to be crying foul. He wonders why the Nxivm-5 did not speak up at the trial.  His Twitter thread speaks for itself.

Because I’ve been blocked by most #nxivm loyalists/true believers, I have to resort to screenshots. I’m struggling along with @julia76856080 & @ivynevares & others to understand how a group blowjob of #raniere upholds ethics, compassion and critical thinking. (1/2)

Also you guys were NOT silenced. You had 7 weeks during the #nxivm trial to speak up and defend your Lord and Master #raniere But crickets… you just sat in court giving me the stinkeye. 

@BlindfoldHer  are you joking? Hasn’t there been enough branding and coerced rape? (2/2)

I’m not a party to any of the litigation, just someone who just followed the trial. But THANK YOU Mark. This effort makes me feel like I’m being gaslighted. Raniere had the chance to speak in his own defense at his trial, and he didn’t. IIRC, he didn’t even call witnesses.

I wonder how long she’ll stay loyal to him. She reminds me of Squeaky Fromme trying to keep Manson’s ship afloat after he and all his major followers were inside. I guess I feel sorry for the members still in the way you only can when someone is just lost by their own directive.

and  @BlindfoldHer  Are the Bronfman sisters still paying lawyers, keeping the filing spigot, or firehouse, on full blast? Apologies, not sure where they are at this point.
