Despite Suneel’s Bizarre Claims, Evidence Shows Raniere Abused Cami at Age 15

Camila by MK10ART.

Suneel Chakravorty fired off a screamer in his opening presentation of his challenge. I am giving him the full amount of rope he needs for his task.

He challenged me, and, unlike others of the more timid strain of humanity, Chakravorty is using his full name.

I will respond to the lad.

I want to respect him for his ability to foist brazenly bizarre, eccentric, and contrarian ideas out into the world at all costs to his own reputation, based on the incredible notion that Keith Raniere is a noble human being, falsely accused and convicted.

He is willing to offer any notion that strikes him as supporting ideals he put his heart and soul into: the NXIVM cause.  This kind of foolhardiness is not normally found in nature. Raniere must have trained him very hard for that.

Keith Raniere, according to Suneel, is one hell of a noble human being.

Cami

The subject Suneel started off with in his challenge is Cami. Yes, I know, not just Cami, but how the Cami-related evidence was tampered with to convict Raniere of abuse of her when she was a child of 15 – tampered through photographs and exploitation required to take photographs of a then-underage child.

Marie White’s grotesque painting of Keith Raniere as he photographs a child of 15.

Suneel emphatically states the evidence was tampered with – and that we are gullible fools not to believe him.

He says that whether Raniere sexually abused Camila is irrelevant and can never be proven. He may be mistaken.

In addition to publishing his screamer,  Suneel also contacted me. He read a court filing by Neil Glazer, a man who worked diligently to protect Camila since before the criminal trial. He is now her attorney.

Suneel pointed out that Glazer noticed me in his recent filing, referring to, though not by name, the Frank Report.

It was a reference to a time – long before the criminal trial commenced – when Frank Report was gathering evidence against Raniere and his supporters, and Glazer was gathering clients for his expected civil suit.

It referenced that at one time, Frank Report revealed the family name of the most important family in NXIVM – the family consisting of Hector, Adriana, Mariana, Daniela, Adrian, and Camila.

In NXIVM, their last name even had a nickname – and everyone knew them. They were an inextricably important part of NXIVM and to name them was natural to intelligent reporting about NXIVM.

This was at a time when only Daniela was anti-Raniere and the rest of the family, including Camila, supported him.

Now, Suneel wants to know why I, the hypocrite, have stopped publishing their last name.

I will explain how I stopped publishing the family name.

It had a lot to do with Glazer’s explanation of Camila being a victim.

Evidence of Abuse

But first let us return to why I think Camila was abused when she was 15. This would not exonerate the government if they planted the evidence of course. Both things can be true: i.e., Raniere abused her – and because the FBI did not have enough evidence to prove that, they created some.

 

Western Digital hard drive – the same model that the FBI seized from Keith Raniere’s library.

However, I would need to see hard evidence of such tampering, other than purely circumstantial stuff – like EXIF data is easy to change and the FBI examiner said it is hard to change. Or they found the child porn pictures 11 months after they seized the hard drive when, logically, you would think they would have scoured the hard drive and found it sooner.

The FBI said EXIF data was the best evidence they had to prove the dates of the photographs, and the camera they were taken in: i.e., 2015 and Raniere’s Canon camera. EXIF data is no proof at all because almost anyone can change EXIF data.  I know I can.

But that does not mean the FBI tampered with it. They merely were wrong when the FBI computer expert told the jury that EXIF data is hard to change and very reliable.

But I will need more than “confirmation bias” that, in Suneel, is so strong that I suspect his picture may be placed in future editions of books when defining the term.

Camila Was Abused

Suneel likes to make a lot out of the fact that Camila spoke at Raniere’s sentencing hearing, on October 27, 2020, a hearing I attended, without being under oath.

She spoke candidly and convincingly. 

Suneel is right: she was not under oath. She was the first victim to speak at his sentencing. It was the first time Camila, then age 30, made her voice heard. She did not need to come and speak. Raniere was already convicted.

But she came.

Cami by MK10ART

During the trial, the photos of Cami loomed large. The prosecution got hold of thousands of texts between Raniere and her. They spent a day reading them during the trial.  Those texts supported the date of when Raniere began to rape underage Camila.

As much as anyone, Cami helped convict Raniere, though she did not appear at trial.

Among the things Cami said in her sentencing statement, as Raniere listened a few feet away, were:

   – “I understand that the case that concerns me and my name has been mentioned repeatedly throughout the trial, but I was not here, and I was not heard…. During this trial I was advised by my lawyer not to speak with the Government and to stay invisible. But I have recognized the power I hold, and I am ready to retain my voice and stand up for myself…

– “He tried to replace my voice with his own, my thoughts with his self-serving ideas. He twisted my mind for so long that finding the strength and clarity to tell my story has been a slow and painful journey. And even now I realize that I still have a long road ahead of me….

– “I now realize I am stronger than he ever allowed me to know I was. He tried to control me because he knew that the knowledge I had about him and his actions toward me made him vulnerable.

– “I met him when I was just 13, and from the start, I did not feel comfortable around him.  I would even try to avoid being in the same room as him, but the adults around me would get mad at me for being rude and push me back towards him. This felt like a violation and a betrayal from the very people that were supposed to protect me.

– “The very first time I was left to have a conversation alone with him, we talked about how I placed second on my eighth-grade spelling bee contest. I continued to avoid him after that for some time, but years later, he told me how he knew I was special from the moment we met at 13.

– “He first had sex with me on September 18, 2005. He would expect me to celebrate September 18th as our anniversary together every year. That first time, which was my first time, I was 15.  He was 45.

– “This was after a few months of him asking me to go on walks in the middle of the night, which he would bring up topics of a sexual nature escalating in detail over time and asking me flippant questions about my sexual history, of which I had none.

– “He told me keep it all a secret, immediately severing me from my family and friends and effectively making himself my only resource. Beginning at that time, he would ask me to sneak out of the house that I was living in to meet him at places where we were isolated… so that he could have sex with me.

– “He would often take me to his executive library where he would ask me to take my clothes off before coming up the stairs to the loft as he watched. During these secret meetings when I was still 15, he took naked pictures — naked pictures of me.

– “The experience of being photographed is seared into my memory. As a 15-year-old that is not something you easily forget. He would have with me some type of sexual contact during every meeting. He wanted to take a picture with no exception.

– “While he hid our sexual relationship from others, he explained it to me by telling me I was very mature for my age, and the flattering and the romance of hearing that when you’re a teenager; I know now that it was false…. He used my innocence… to do whatever he wanted with me, not just sexually but also psychologically….

– “I left in 2017 thanks to my sister [Daniela]. When I walked away, I had the mind of a 15-year-old in the body of a 27-year-old….  Even after I left, I was still constrained by him.

– “I was distrustful of almost everyone, including my own family; and sometimes had moments of confusion where I felt unsure, I was — that it was right of me to leave. I felt completely alone.

– “Because of him I lacked documentation of legal status, even in Mexico.

– “It was not until a few months after his arrest that I began to truly break free of his control….

– “I never got to live like a normal teenager. I never went on a date until I was 29.  I never went to college….  I find it difficult to even conceptualize what I have missed….

– “He hid his abuse behind ideas and concepts of nobility, but there is nothing noble about abusing a child, abusing his authority, and taking advantage of me, my mind, my body, my spirit, my trust. He demanded loyalty, but was loyal to no one but himself. He left me weak, confused, and completely unarmed. He claimed to build me up, to love me selflessly, yet, he kept me blind and lost, controlling everything around me, including my perception of the world and myself.”

Suneel Chakravorty, supporter and advocate for Keith Raniere.
OK, Suneel. You might say that’s not proof, because anyone can say anything. She may be lying. Sure. But it is a fairly elaborate lie if it is a lie, which I do not think it is.
She said he took naked pictures of her at 8 Hale Drive when she was 15 and naked pictures of her were found there on a hard drive with EXIF data dates of 2005, which corresponds with when she was 15.  While EXIF data dates are not reliable, the FBI agents were never asked if they tampered. No evidence was shown that they tampered.
EXIF data dates can be true too.
You don’t believe Cami’s unsworn statement. She also made a sworn statement. It is under seal, but Judge Garaufis quotes a telling piece of it in his restitution memorandum:
Judge Garaufis
Judge Nicholas G, Garaufis sentenced Keith Raniere to 120 years in prison. It was not nearly long enough. By the way, he found Camila’s statement credible.

Judge Garaufis: “Camila’s sworn affidavit describes how, when she was an underage girl, the Defendant induced her to submit to pornographic photography sessions by initiating and maintaining an extended sexual relationship with her.

“Her account corroborates evidence that was presented at trial, which made clear that Mr. Raniere’s commission of child pornography offenses occurred in the context of a sexual relationship that began when Camila was 15 years old. Her affidavit describes the physical pain, and subsequent bleeding, that she experienced during one of their initial sexual encounters.

“In light of the fact that she was a minor, the court finds that her experience of physical pain occasioned by unlawful sexual intercourse constitutes a ‘bodily injury’ within the meaning of the MVRA [Mandatory Victim Restitution Act]. Accordingly, Camila is statutorily entitled to recover the cost of past and future mental health care proximately caused by the Defendant’s conduct.”

***

She was bleeding because the varmint could not wait for her to come of age. According to Daniela’s testimony, he did wait for her, Daniela, to come of age, which he evidently did not do with Camila. Too bad. He only had to wait two more years. It is not as if he did not have any other women to bed. He had her two sisters, and plenty of other women.
Ah, but women were not enough. He needed a girl of 15.
But let us put to bed the notion that Cami’s claims that Raniere had sexual encounters and took photographs of her were never made under oath.  They were made under oath, and she said he did it.
AGNIFILO EXCERPT

If that was not enough, Marc Agnifilo, Raniere’s attorney, admits Raniere took pictures of the child.  Sure, Suneel, you can say Raniere’s mouthpiece is not Raniere, but I was at the sentencing. Raniere did not object. He did not say to Agnifilo, “Stop, I did not abuse this girl when she was 15.”

He let him go right on.

Here is what Agnifilo said, and what the judge said too.

AGNIFILO: As your Honor knows, [Raniere] wasn’t charged with or convicted of having sex with Camila. He was charged and convicted of the photographs.

And if your Honor remembers my trial defense, I didn’t really dispute the photographs all that much. The way I disputed them is they were never shown to anybody and the jury shouldn’t consider them as either child pornography or as a racketeering predicate because they were photographs that were taken and then for the rest of time they just stayed on a device, they never got sent anywhere, never got shown anywhere.

So that’s how I dealt with the photographs at the trial. I didn’t say anything one way or another about them. I didn’t say at the trial anything one way or another about Camila at 15 years old.

Judge Nicholas Garaufis
JUDGE GARAUFIS: You were talking about intent, I’m just wondering how that works into your theory of intent here.


AGNIFILO: I absolutely admit that Camila is in a different category than other people in the case. There is no question, there is no question. And there is no doubt, and I never said anything to the contrary, and I don’t say that now.

JUDGE GARAUFIS: Go on.

AGNIFILO: What I think your Honor can glean from all this, and I don’t know if it cuts for or against him, but I’ll say it because it’s the truth. He’s in a 13-year relationship with [Camila], 12-year relationship with her. I don’t know if that makes it better or worse, but those are the facts. And my point, and it’s not a point that I think a psychological report, I thought that some of people who spoke this morning spoke absolutely eloquently about it, he doesn’t know how to leave people.

***

Agnifilo says it is a fact Raniere had a 12 year-long relationship with Cami, making her 15 when that relationship began. Raniere sat right there cool as a cantaloupe, or even a cauliflower, not disagreeing in the slightest. He was to speak a few moments later before the judge and he did not dispute what his lawyer called was a fact: He took photos and exploited Cami when she was 15.

Suneel responds to this by diverting the narrative to tampering and challenging me as to why I once thought Camila was culpable and now believe her to be a victim.

Prior to the trial, I believed Camila, though likely abused, had grown up to be another Allison Mack or Lauren Salzman.

After all,  Cami was a first line DOS master. She searched for virgins and “fuck toys” for Raniere. She participated in the sexual assault of Nicole.

Before the trial, I was told by sources that Camila was actively supporting Raniere, refusing to testify, despite the fact that the FBI found her 2015 nude photos when he was 15, just a month before trial, a huge break in the case and something that caused other defendants to scamper onto the plea bus – and save themselves years in prison as it turns out.

The Plea Deal Bus. It may not be big but those who fail to get on it, may spend many years regretting that decision. Cami drove the plea bargain bus.

I would not have brought this up, except that Suneel was quick to seize on Glazer’s comments about Frank Report. I think it fair to defend myself from Glazer’s or Suneel’s calumny that I wanted to out a child sex victim.

Glazer wrote, “Counsel [Glazer] have worked with media outlets to prevent public exposure of their [Hector, Adriana, Marian, Daniela, Adriene, and Camila’s] family name and the places where they reside, and those efforts have been largely successful. Their full identities were disclosed in two books about NXIVM published exclusively in Mexico and one news article written by the author of one of those books.

[Actually their names have been published in scores of Mexican news outlets. I won’t publish the links because that would out their last name.]

Glazer goes on to chastise me: “One publicly accessible blog [Frank Report] published their full names until mid-2018 and has reported on NXIVM using only their first names since then, although several anonymous commenters disclosed full names in the comments section in that blog. No other media outlet has fully identified them….

“While some have been identified on an internet site [Frank Report], one would have to first know their names and association with NXIVM to find those references through an internet search engine.”

I normally would not publish the following but since I have been referred to and everyone knows it is the Frank Report Glazer is referring to, I had better prove that my view of Camila changed over time.

Glazer and I had numerous conflicts. I was working to expose DOS, naming names, taking no hostages. This was before the New York Times or Moira Kim Penza were on the scene. I was the only one reporting on DOS.

Glazer came into the picture after Kristin Keeffe approached him to represent her and he watched for a while then started gathering clients for an intended civil suit.  He wanted clients – and once they became his clients – he wanted them protected. I wanted proof they were out of NXIVM and DOS or they were fair game.

It came to a head between Glazer and me several times between 2017 and recently, including circumstances in Brooklyn surrounding a woman who Glazer was unfairly criticized for trying to help, and we argued over Nicole, Daniela, and others.

We fought at times but most of the time we tried to help each other – him to get clients who could provide evidence to the EDNY and get witnesses. We had a dispute in April 2019 about Camila.  The government had just found Cami’s child porn pictures.

But she was not disavowing Raniere. She was, I heard, teaching the vile and dangerous Rainbow Cultural Garden program.  I thought that if defiling a 15-year-old is bad – teaching the Rainbow psychobabble to babies and children is worse.

I wrote to Glazer on April 2, 2019:

“My sources say Cami is in Guadalajara teaching children (Rainbow) the horrid doctrines of Keith Raniere, She is still all-in, still supports Raniere and is part of the movement to keep Nxivm alive. If this is true, she needs to be outed so that innocent people aren’t sucked in.

“After all she was the first DOS member. Now she is teaching children.

“Neil, I know Dani wants to shield her – but I can’t let Cami remain anonymous while she teaches Rainbow and may be recruiting women to be branded.

I am willing to listen to your rebuttal before I do a full expose on her. Normally I would not hesitate to out anyone who spreads the filth of Keith Raniere.”

Glazer wrote back:

“You are wrong, Frank. She is nowhere near all-in. She is slowly turning. Yes, she still teaches Rainbow but it is not out of dedication to ESP, Raniere or anything of the sort. She has a strong interest in child development and education and she feels she helped develop this. She doesn’t know any better, but even that is something she is thinking about. She is planning to pursue education, higher level education, and to develop a bona fife career in the field.

“I’m sorry Frank, but this angers me…. The mere suggestion that you might publish this sends a message… that…  you question the veracity of what I share with you…. She is maintaining regular contacts with her family, and I expect to be going back to Mexico to visit with her very soon.

“She is confused, struggling, but that is true of virtually everyone who left in their first weeks or months. The people who are not well intentioned are trying to exercise influence over her, but she is emerging into the world, taking those first small steps toward a real life.

“In all this, she is being ‘defiant’ to NXIVM. That is no small matter. Her contacts outside of NXIVM are secretive for the same set of reasons that so many others have been leaving as quietly as possible. Yes, this is slow, yes it can at times be fits and starts, but she is turning the corner….

“This remains a precarious situation. She is fragile. A post like this could drive her back underground. Among other things….

“You are going to do what you are going to do….

“This girl is a child sex abuse and exploitation victim. She was no first line DOS master [actually, it turns out she was, and she recruited at least one slave]  — she doesn’t have that personality and she kept to herself. She had no friends, no social circle, no way to do the DOS thing. If you want to drag her through the mud, lay meritless allegations based on sources who quite obviously to me do not know why they are talking about, I cannot stop you.

“Demonizing Cami based on poor quality information does nothing but hurt her. And her family, who are already in extreme distress. Leave her alone, please.

“This is a bright line I am drawing. Cami is off-limits, especially this kind of thing. Leave the [last name redacted] family alone. They don’t deserve this. They have gone through hell. Every time you post a [last name] story, it inflicts genuine hurt and distress….

***

I was persuaded by Glazer. It made sense. I did not include her last name in the article, but with this proviso, which I added, “I am genuinely, sincerely, concerned that Cami is still in Nxivm [DOS?]…. She was a child victim, yes, but according to the prosecution, as an adult, she was the very first DOS member, and a first line slave master.

“Now I hear she is teaching children! I hate the idea of children being taught 7 languages via the godawful Rainbow program. I think Rainbow is terrible for children. Cami is not merely in child education, she is teaching a program devised by Keith Raniere! Teaching little children – while she is branded and has never done one thing to take Raniere down.

“She is not testifying against him. In fact, she may be one of the Mexican women Raniere plans to call as a witness if the judge lets them testify via closed circuit TV.”

[Raniere’s attorneys asked that some women in Mexico be permitted to testify via teleconferencing. The judge denied the request.]

Hector, father of Camila and Daniela, and Raniere, the abuser of Camila and Daniela

I continued, “Maybe Cami is going to get out. I hope so. Then I would want to protect her. And I do agree that the [last name redacted] family has suffered a lot. But they were also big in Nxivm. The father was a despicable enabler who sided with Keith over his own daughter – Dani. The mother aided in her imprisonment also. What mother, knowing her daughter was imprisoned – when the months became more than a year, would not have made a giant noise, and stopped it? Instead she enabled it by going into the adjoining room. Cami too enabled her sister’s imprisonment. Mariana is the mother of Keith’s youngest son – her loyalties are likely with Keith. Where does Cami really stand? With Mariana and Keith and Nxivm or with Dani?

“Now I hear they are gathering forces in Mexico to keep Nxivm alive and Cami IS one of Nxivm’s employees. Hard for me to buy into her being just a victim. If it wasn’t you advocating for her, I would have published my story on her already.”

Glazer wrote back, “Frank, with all due respect, you clearly do not know the full story. Just by way of example, the mother was imprisoned as well, starting at the same time as Dani. When she got out and went to Mexico a year and a half later, she was cut off from contact with her family. This was all orchestrated and directed by Lauren [Salzman] and Raniere with substantial assistance from Nancy [Salzman]… and others in the inner circle.

“Cami has been interviewed. She is not testifying for Raniere. FBI victim services are in contact with her to make sure she knows they will help her to get help. No, she has not fully come forward, but she has been willing to stay in contact with them and the fact is they don’t need her testimony to prosecute and convict Raniere for what he did to her. Moira [Penza] told me, and this is a quote, “we have all the evidence we need.” From their perspective and mine this is a rescue mission, plain and simple. I will not tolerate interference of any kind in that mission….

“She is not an employee of any NXIVM entity. She loves the children, she doesn’t know any better, she grew up in NXIVM and was personally groomed and manipulated by Raniere in other ways since she was a child. They have not paid her in a year. They have not fulfilled any of their promises. She is still struggling, she doesn’t know who to trust, but she is making progress. She isn’t recruiting anyone and she has no other involvement. She’s a confused young woman who was mind-fucked, but who just wants to work with kids. They promised to put her through school, to help her get into a college, it hasn’t happened. These broken promises raise questions deep in her mind. Especially school, she wants higher education, she knows she needs the credentials and sooner or later she will come to see how ill-conceived this Rainbow thing is.

“This story you want to run is inaccurate and heavily biased [I did not run it because I gave her the benefit of the doubt]. Cami isn’t responsible for Marianna or her father, she barely talks to them. The father is still ardently supporting Raniere and refusing to accept the truth. To our knowledge, Marianna is a virtual recluse. She and Cami do not speak. She speaks to nobody in the family except her father, who is her sole means of support at the moment. He refuses to even hear the truth. Deep down somewhere is still a good man, but so far as I’m concerned he is a bad guy right now….

“I respect law enforcement and stay out of their way, but I don’t work for them, I serve my clients. And all NXIVM victims, all of whom are prospective clients as well…. I am building a civil case and have more than 80 clients to serve, and it grows by the week. If any client does anything to hurt anyone I have an interest in protecting, I will terminate the representation….”

***

This persuaded me: Cami was more a victim than a perpetrator.

And by April 2019, despite misgivings about her teaching Rainbow, despite the fact she was out hunting for virgins for Raniere, despite the fact she might be recruiting for DOS, I gave her the benefit of the doubt and held off on the story. I had almost a year earlier stopped using her last name.

So, what this all means to me is that Cami is a victim. Her last name should not be used but her story is important.

And Suneel, while I am open to hearing your tampering evidence, I wonder if you really, after reading Neil Glazer’s extremely persuasive emails, the judge, Agnifilo, and most importantly, Cami herself, do you really think she is lying?

Pray tell, Suneel.

  • Why does Suneel Chakravorty believe Keith Rainier, Nicki Clyne, Brandon Porter, Michael Hackett or the rest of NXIVM loyalists?

    None of what they say has been said under oath.

    Matter of fact, nothing you have said is under oath, Chakravorty.

    Suneel came into NXIVM right before the door shut down on the Cult.

    What’s that I hear…Oh ya, Mic drop, Chakravorty

    Everything you know is at least 2nd, 3rd, 4th class data.

    Those of us ExNx know that means you don’t know any of this from personal experience.

    You were not around when most of this was happening.

    You mostly attended programs in NYC, not Albany.

    Your knowledge is from other people or things you’ve read and filtered through your pea brain to support Raniere being innocent.

    In a court of law, that is considered “hearsay” and not factual evidence.

    Case closed, you’re excused from this case as you are not a reliable witness

    Bye-Bye, Baby, Good Bye

    Raniere’s never getting out of prison

  • Frank-

    Superb piece!
    ***

    If anyone hasn’t read this, please do; even longtime readers of the Frank Report.

    Frank has provided some previously unpublished details of his battle with Raniere — it’s well worth a read.
    ***

    One interesting tidbit is Frank’s communication over the course of time, before The NY Times story broke.

  • Awesome rebuttal!

    Obviously, no photos were touched up or faked. The dates were corroborated with testimony.

    Consensus by the prosecutors and Raniere’s lead counsel. Challenged and accepted by the judge.

    Maybe that was the practice swing for Harvard Boy I’m sure he will raise a more fruitful challenge to the illicit prosecution of KAR on his second real attempt.

    He has the stage.

    Thanks, Frank!

  • Looks like Keith has a copycat-https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/a-little-bit-culty/id1553334816?i=1000551732843

  • This shows how meaningless Suneel’s “case” is. He has barely any evidence, and all of it was either presented in court, or is completely redundant of things that were presented in court, or was not presented in court because it’s irrelevant.

    We can summarize each of one his posts thusly – “Here is some tiny bit of evidence. And here is a mountain of rhetoric and argument that requires you to only focus on my tiny bit of evidence, and forget all the evidence that came out in court. Anyone who doesn’t see it my way is brainwashed by the system.”

    I enjoy a good public de-pantsing as much as anyone, but this will get old quickly.

    • “Here is some tiny bit of evidence. And here is a mountain of rhetoric and argument that requires you to only focus on my tiny bit of evidence, and forget all the evidence that came out in court.”

      This is exactly correct. Insincere. A slight of hand. An attempt to shift everything else to a couple small points. Tons and tons of non-disclosure.

      Keith would be proud of Suneel’s actions. Suneel is coming off as a chump.

      • NutJob-

        I wonder who the real Suneel was before NXIVM.

        How close is the man we see today, to his previous self?

        I sincerely mean it.

        • I think he probably had a lot of pressure to become a lawyer. His parents especially (Indian parents) wouldn’t be supportive of ballroom dancing for their son. I’m guessing he has father issues which would explain his attachment to KR. I believe he wants to wear a cape and save the day. But he realizes he’s failing fast, and can’t handle it, hence the recent angry outbursts. He’s got a chip on his shoulder. I also bet he didn’t have many male friendships.

  • Suneel’s scored an own goal. Frank’s reply is full of backable info such as Judge G. referring to Camila’s deposition UNDER OATH which corroborates the findings in the trial. Either SC didn’t know (unlikely) or dismissed this piece of info out of hand because it didn’t fit with his ‘opinions’ – and hoped that no-one else picked up on this little detail … she did give evidence under oath. Now thanks to him starting this ‘challenge’, FP has put this back on the table. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, SC. Frank, thank you for explaining your rationale about using first names only/family name, and back it up with the info you have (not that you needed to explain yourself) – this is what a good journalist does (in my humble opinion): change your mind as more facts emerge, not start with a fixed viewpoint and make the facts fit (which seems to be Suneel’s modus operandi).

    • Yep. Been pointing out that Camilla did make sworn statements for a long ass time on this blog.

      No way authorities and powers that be were gonna embarrass themselves and tank a massive court case over not checking and rechecking the facts. And then checking and rechecking a 1000 more times. And getting sworn statements

      What if (another) lying loyalists purposely misled them? To torpedo the criminal case into a mistrial? OF COURSE Camilla made sworn statements.

      Don’t forget the medical information. And that sworn testimony about the date of the abortion performed on Camilla. And her written documentation of the beginning of her sexual abuse by Raniere. Way before any thought of any trial or civil case.

      Keith’s own texts to Camilla.

      There is a veritable mountain of evidence to support Camilla.

  • 100% what that other commenter said – and duh, no mystery that NDNY continues to sh*t the bed on pursuing strongly evidenced cases if it doesn’t serve NDNY’s best interest. FR has been covering that for ages.

    Thank you, Frank, for sharing the email exchanges and providing greater insight into the situation – especially for us longtime readers on the outside. I recall many pics and stories about their family over the years on FR and absolutely respected your decision to remove specific identifiers.

    Thank you for giving her the benefit of the doubt. I hope the text exchanges between KAR and Cami read in court reinforced what an impossible situation she was in.

    Thank you again for all you do.

  • Excellent rebuttal. It is crystal clear what happened to Camila. There is the absence of the scar on the photos, indicating she was not 16 when the pictures were taken. There is the similar pose of the dozens of women Raniere photographed: indicating Raniere took these photos of Camila. There is the fact that Raniere abused other underage girls before Camila.

    I’ve had enough of Suneel, Nicki, Hachette, Roberts, Porter, the and the other DOSsier-dumbo’s essentially denying anything untoward happened.
    Shame on them…….

  • Suneel Chakravorty won’t be able to take any of this factual information into his pea brain.

    His filter only goes one way: i.e., what supports Raniere was innocent.

    Anything else he can’t take in; it gets filtered out in his NOBUT FILTER

  • The NDNY never took up the charges against Raniere for child rape regarding Cami.

    Had they, Raniere would have been found guilty of child sexual abuse of her and child porn.

    The EDNY could not change Raniere for these charges because they happened in the NDNY.

    Once again, the NDNY does nothing even though the EDNY hands them a case wrapped up like a Christmas present.

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.
