Bursting Suneel’s Bubble:120 Years Won’t Change If Cami Pics Are Fake

Don't burst his bubble - but Keith Raniere is not going to walk on earth again.

By K. R, Claviger

I’ve held off commenting very much about Suneel Chakravorty’s latest attempts to prove that Keith Raniere should get a new trial because of what Suneel believes are “issues” regarding the photos of Cami that were introduced as evidence during Keith’s 2019 trial, so that Suneel had ample opportunity to thoroughly explain those “issues”.

MK10ART’s painting of Keith Raniere and Suneel Chakravorty, who dreams of freeing his friend.

Now that he is moving on to other matters, I would like to repeat what I’ve previously stated on several occasions about the relative unimportance of those photos.

Keith was charged with – and found guilty of committing – seven (7) felonies:

  1. Racketeering,
  2. Racketeering Conspiracy,
  3. Forced Labor Conspiracy,
  4. Wire Fraud Conspiracy,
  5. Sex Trafficking Conspiracy,
  6. Sex Trafficking (Nicole),
  7. Attempted Sex Trafficking (Jay).

Judge Nicholas Garaufis subsequently sentenced Keith as follows:

  1. Racketeering: 40 years;
  2. Racketeering Conspiracy: 40 years;
  3. Forced Labor Conspiracy: 20 years;
  4. Wire Fraud Conspiracy: 20 years;
  5. Sex Trafficking Conspiracy: 40 years;
  6. Sex Trafficking (Nicole): 40 years;
  7. Attempted Sex Trafficking (Jay): 40 years.

But instead of having each of those individual sentences run consecutively – which would have added up to 240 years – Judge Garaufis ordered some of them to run concurrently, thereby reducing Keith’s overall sentence to 120 years.

What Suneel has steadfastly ignored – and what is critical in terms of understanding why the Cami photos are so unimportant – is that those photos only pertained to three (3) of the sixteen (16) predicate acts that were part of the Racketeering charge.

Thus, even if Suneel and his three experts could prove that the photos of Cami were tampered with – which I think is highly unlikely – there would still be thirteen (13) “Proven” predicate acts to support the Racketeering conviction.

And, even if the Keith’s conviction on the Racketeering charge was thrown out altogether – which is even more unlikely – his sentence would still be 120 years. That’s because the 40-year sentence on the Racketeering charge and the 40-year sentencing on the Racketeering Conspiracy charge are running concurrently.

Portrait of Suneel by MK10ART. Claviger thinks this fine young man is merely wasting his time.

All in all, I think Suneel has wasted an enormous amount of time and energy trying to prove something that in the best possible scenario would likely not have any impact whatsoever on Keith spending the rest of his life in federal prison.

  • Suneel looks like he starred in a UNICEF or ‘March Dimes’ commercial. And shit didn’t work out….

  • K.R. Claviger-

    Great piece! It’s impossible to refute. It’ll be interesting to read Suneel’s layperson response.
    ***
    BTW: I think the BOP miscalculated Raniere’s release date.

    Name: KEITH RANIERE
    Register Number: 57005-177
    Age: 61
    Race: White
    Sex: Male
    Release Date: 06/27/2120
    Located At: USP Tucson

    I had thought with the 5 years off for time served Raniere would be looking at at least another 115 years in prison not 98 more years. Am I missing something….

    • There are several elements that go into the calculation of “Good Time” — and those elements are subject to change: e.g., there were several recent changes that increased the amount of “Good Time” that federal prisoners can earn.

      For estimation purposes, I still use 15% of the sentence as the maximum number of years of “Good Time” that a federal prisoner can earn — which for Keith would be 18.75 years. Thus, the figure cited by the BOP looks correct to me.

      • K.R. Claviger,
        I certainly wasn’t aware of “good time” being calculated ahead of time.

        Now Keith only has 35,728 days to go….

        • Well, just to be clear, federal prisoners actually earn “good time” on a monthly basis — and they can lose some of what they’ve earned if they commit certain infractions. But you can estimate how much “good time” a federal prisoner will earn while they’re incarcerated by using that 15% figure.

          • You’re absolutely correct: Keith will be on probation for 5 years after he finishes serving his 120-year sentence (That part of his sentence still makes me crack-up every time I think about it). 😂

          • You would think as many times as Raniere has been in the SHU, got caught with cell phone, etc., that he has already lost some of this “good time”.

            When can we expect an update on how Raniere, Mack, Bronfman and our newest prisoner, Salzman, are doing?

          • The BOP generally does not deduct “good time” from pre-trial inmates unless the violations are significant or reoccurring. That said, it is possible that Keith did lose some “good time” for his various violations while he was at the Metropolitan Detention Center. It’s also possible that his various violations at USP Tucson have resulted in the loss of “good time” (I think the “Release Date” that is posted by the BOP does not take into account any loss of “good time”, but I’ll have to verify that one way or the other).

            As for updates on Nancy, Allison, Clare and Keith AKA “NACK”, I won’t be able to get any until the BOP retracts its current COVID-a9 protocols. Per those protocols, correction officers/guards are not allowed to move around the prisons — which is why we haven’t been able to get any updates.

  • There is no way in hell Suneel Chakravorty could have known what was going with Cami, these photos, or this family.

    He wasn’t a big part of the NXIVM community during the time any of this was happening. He took his course work in NYC not Albany.

    He never met Keith Raniere until he was in a holding cell at the MDC waiting for his sentencing.

    The only one of the NXIVM loyalists who has had long term contract with Raniere is Nicki Clyne.

    She was a low-level coach and a low-level lover of Keith Raniere. She had no real power in NXIVM until DOS, when she became a Firstt Line Master.

    She wasn’t even a power Master. She didn’t have money, she didn’t recruit sex slaves for Raniere, and none had been branded yet.

    Clyne wasn’t even a good recruiter for NXIVM courses. Overall, pretty worthless to Raniere but for sex and worker-bee labor around NXIVM.

    Since she has stayed loyal to Raniere, is part of The DOSsier project, keeps the other loyalists in line, and helps to be Raniere’s mouthpiece, Clyne’s value has increased.

    Let’s face it, who is left to choose from people?

    Most of Raniere’s current loyalists weren’t in NXIVM for most of his reign of terror.

    Most didn’t live in Albany full-time. If they did come, it was for Vanguard week or a special training, and not that often.

    All were low level coaches, nothing as far the leadership was concerned.

    How many took advance courses, Jness or SOP?

    Any information they have gotten on what went on behind the scenes of crimes Raniere and the five others were arrested on other than DOS only a few would have some first-hand knowledge of.

    *Nicki Clyne some information on DOS but not all of it. Let’s be honest. Allison Mack was the Head of DOS. Nicki was low on the leadership considering who else were Masters.

    *Daniel Roberts less knowledge on DOS. Come on Roberts can’t rub two thoughts together. She thinks her behavior of branding women wouldn’t get her in trouble with the medical licensing board!

    *Michele Hatchette less knowledge on DOS and she was a nobody, tag-along in NXIVM and is in DOSsier.

    *Brandon Porter has knowledge on the experiments he held. But he is so messed up in the brain, he didn’t stop long enough to consider how doing unsanctioned research would affect his medical license. This was a guy who had a medical license and a PhD in research and was blinded by what Raniere wanted.

    *Marc Elliott has knowledge on the NXIVM Tourette’s study but it was also unsanctioned and ran by unqualified staff.
    To this day he doesn’t know what was happening behind the scenes of that study. Yet he continues to beat the drum of as if it’s the greatest invention to cure
    Tourette’s Syndrome. A bunch of convicted criminals doing time for serious crimes taking advantage of people. Really Marc Elliott!

    *Suneel Chakravorty came into NXIVM so late that head trainers know very little about the guy.
    Took his training in NYC. He admits to not knowing Raniere until the trial. Yet he’s pretending as if he knows the entire history of NXIVM.
    Truth is Suneel only knows what has been spoon fed to him by Raniere and low level NXIVM Loyalists.

    They are so busy trying to prove Raniere got a raw deal by the Justice Dept and the FBI they have a one-way filter.
    They all take in only information that fits what they want to believe

    Raniere Good, Everyone Else Full of Shit.
    Problem is, Ex-NXIVM members have it the other way around.
    They believed Raniere was good. Over time or all at once, they found out he, and NXIVM leadership wasn’t what they were selling by incoming information.

    NXIVM- Raniere Lovers haven’t had that date with reality-based data yet.

    They are too busy repeating Raniere lies for him.

    Most of the information they are spreading isn’t first-hand knowledge. They are lip-syncing Raniere made up history.

    They are the sheep in his flock

  • It’s always nice to read Claviger’s posts. Brings us back to reality from the endless speculation.

    As much fun as it is to discuss the unhinged fantasies of the Dead Enders about Exif files and baggies, this BS is going nowhere in a court of appeals. Alleged conspiracies and imaginative but fact-free accusations of FBI malfeasance will not even be considered by the panel of Federal appeals judges who might – might – consider Raniere’s appeal. Some readers of the Frank report may be inclined to believe the Government is corrupt and out to get us and the Justice system is rotten to the core and the BOP is running torture dungeons, but a Federal judge is not.

    I doubt Raniere’s lawyer, whoever that is these days, would even have the temerity bring it up. He’d look like an ass.

    So Claviger’s post was a welcome relief from all the bullshit. The Cami photos aren’t very important. They weren’t important to Raniere’s conviction and even less important to his sentencing. They’re a non-issue. And as for the accusation that they may have been faked, that remains a hopeful fantasy on the dead-enders’s part. They still haven’t produced a shred of evidence. Not an iota.

    Remember when Frank gave Chakravorty 48 hours to produce evidence the Cami photos were faked? That was back in February.

  • Frank, I think you could greatly add meaningfulness to this discussion by sending a few emails to the right people.

    You’ve already mentioned that it’s very possible that changing EXIF data may leave behind digital ‘artifacts’ (a different alignment of bits) which will differ from the ‘pattern’ written by the original camera.

    Yet, you have no idea if that’s true. Maybe it’s true. Maybe it’s not.

    So why not stop speculating and send a few emails to verify?

    1) Email the Canon Camera company and ask if 3rd party programs (which change EXIF data) will change the bits of a file in a way that’s different from the original camera.

    2) Email other makers of cameras and ask them the same question (just in case Canon doesn’t return your email).

    3) Email other ‘industry experts’ (not the ones hired by Suneel) to ask them the same thing.

    4) Email Suneel and ask him if he can guarantee, thru testing, that he’s already verified that his ‘EXIF tests’ did not leave behind any small artifacts which differ from the original file.

    *The government will likely bring up this point IF IT’S TRUE; thus, I find it hard to believe that Suneel wouldn’t have already verified if it’s true. It might not be true, but if it is, he’ll need to ‘expect’ the government to bring it up in their response to his motion. He’s a logical guy. He would have already had to investigate this issue.

    5) Why not conduct a test yourself? Just take an original photo, then modify the EXIF data (with any 3rd party program), then submit both files to an ‘expert’ to see if there’s any difference in the digital ‘artifacts’ left behind.

    Since Suneel is so desperate to convince you that the FBI truly did alter this data, he should be willing to pay for this small test which you may conduct independently of him (as the cost should be tiny). Why? Because you’d promise to publish the results of such a test, whatever they are, without bias.

  • I like the look in Suneel’s eyes depicted in the painting! Lifts up one’s spirits, doesn’t it? 😇🛸🌥🛰🪐

    • Alex
      I concur! It lifts my spirits, but I don’t know why. There is a “je ne sais quoi” element; Suneel looks surreal, he could be alien or a weird, ugly lookin dude – who’s to say. The painting lifts my spirit in an unearthly way. 🌎 🚀

      I bet Nicki gets drunk before banging Suneel, and I don’t blame her one-bit!

      “A six pack can make a 3 look like a 10.”
      -Scott Johnson

      👽🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺👩🏼 = 😍

      • Nice Guy, you must be immensely impressed with Scott Johnson that you can even quote him verbatim even though Scott Johnson has been absent for a long time.
        Is that a sign of adoration and appreciation? Do you miss him that much or have you had a few too many six packs of beer today?

        • Oh yes, I’m enthralled by Scott’s genius. He’s known as the “smarty pants” of the trailer park.

        • Who/What does Niceguy love more?
          1. Scott Johnson
          2. Bangkok
          3. Michelle Salzman
          4. His gifted right hand
          5. His authorized user AMEX Gold card
          6. His favorite asian masseuse at Happy Endings
          7. That upperclassman who turned him out in PE
          8. Gazing at Alanzo’s picture
          9. When Alex sends him love letters
          10. Valtrex

          • Number 3, 4, are number one. 😂

            And everything else is a tie 2nd place with the exception of Scott and Alonzo.
            ***

            A great reality show would be Scott and Alanzo cohabitating in a RV camper.
            ***

            Lastly why wasn’t beer on the list?

          • Good answer. Made me laugh. I’m a little disappointed I didn’t get an offended Alex taking a shot at me…

            I almost said shot-gunning Golden Anniversaries, but I got lazy and typed Valtrex.

            In all seriousness, Alonzo should go on Scott’s “radio show.”

          • NutJobValtrex coulda been:

            Viagra
            Gas station dick pills(made in China work)
            ***
            You’re a funny guy. You let Alex down.

          • Awesome idea-

            I wish Scott was still around. Scott would’ve given Alanzo a serious interview.

            And that would’ve been hilarious!

            😂

      • Nice Guy,
        I’m inclined to suspect it’s that rough 5 degrees rotation along the vertical axis of his left eye, that’s the root cause 🤔🧐☹

        • Alex-

          Yes, the 5 degree rotation. What a marvelous observation you’ve made; a true contribution to science.

        • Perhaps the photo has been tampered with by Suneel to deceive us, just as the Exif files have been altered to deceive the court about the authenticity of the Cami photos. Maybe this is a big conspiracy and to prove it Suneel provided his own tampered photo to Frank Report to prove how easy it is to deceive Frank Report readers because they believe what they see is authentic, which it is not, and Suneel proves how easy it is to fake evidence or photos without creating suspicion.

  • OK we get it, “Claviger”.

    Everything you say is important. Everything Suneel says is unimportant.

    No matter how many experts Suneel presents, no matter how many facts, you can not address the question of photo evidence tampering at all. And you want everyone else to ignore it.

    “Nothing to see here, folks. Move along!”

    I believe the dismissive quote from you was “Chain of Custody is just Chain of Custody”. It’s not important at all.

    We’re so lucky to have a legal expert like you here to explain all this for us.
