Investigation Not About Raniere– FBI Is Focus of Camila Child Porn Charges

Without passing judgment on whether their findings are accurate, I plan to translate the highly technical evaluations and conclusions of three forensic experts into a language I understand. I hope you do too.

The three experts are:

Dr. James Richard Kiper

 

Steven Abrams

 

Wayne Norris

I reviewed voluminous evidence, interviewed Dr. James Richard Kiper for more than three hours, interviewed Steve Abrams, and had a series of interviews with Suneel Chakravorty and Eduardo Asunsolo.

I am not qualified to determine if the findings are accurate or if there is another plausible explanation.

All three experts believe that the FBI tampered with evidence.

I am prepared to state that this becomes a government corruption case if the FBI tampered with evidence.

Whether the defendant Keith Raniere is guilty of possessing child porn or sexually exploiting a minor is not what I am investigating. 

Camila by MK10ART

It is irrelevant whether Camila will testify at a new trial. Some have argued that this entire issue of FBI tampering is moot since Raniere will be convicted based on Camila’s testimony at a new trial.

What is relevant to me is whether the FBI tampered with evidence. It does not matter if the child porn and sexual exploitation of a minor predicate acts of his racketeering charges were significant.

It does not matter if the jury would have found him guilty on the other charges anyway.

It does not matter if he gets a new trial.

Keith Alan Raniere

My opinion of the defendant has not changed. I was a critic before, I am a critic now, and I suspect if we find that the FBI tampered with evidence, I will still be his critic.

This investigation is not about Raniere. 

Instead, the FBI is the focus.

I understand that the supporters of Raniere have motives to see him vindicated. However, I am not interested in seeing him cleared. I am only interested in whether they have evidence that the FBI tampered with evidence.

For this one issue, we agree. 

I have discussed this with Raniere’s supporters, who were willing to share pertinent information. 

Eduardo Asunsolo and Suneel Chakravorty have claimed the FBI tampered with evidence for more than a year.

Chakravorty is a computer technology professional – and Asunsolo a businessman. They managed a thousand details to arrange for the experts and lawyers to get this far.

It is not enough to say that the defendant is guilty, so we will permit law enforcement to plant or alter evidence. The jury is entitled to factual, not altered evidence. 

I believe that vacatur is the proper remedy when a government agency tampers with evidence. 

Anything short of vacatur authorizes the FBI to tamper.

Finally, I do not allege that the FBI is guilty of tampering. But, if they are, then more than vacatur is required. Those who enforce the law are not above the law. There should be no whitewash for the sake of the reputation of the FBI.

Without losing sight of the presumption of innocence, if the FBI tampered with evidence, the prosecution of the bad actors should ensue just as it would if it were you or me.

Just as promptly too.

  • I agree. However, the defense alleged that the metadata had been altered on 68 of 123 child porn files. I haven’t heard anything about the content of the remaining files, but if they also pertain to child exploitation, then isn’t the rest moot? It doesn’t really make sense for the FBI to plant 68 files if they already had 55 files with metadata linked to Raniere.

  • Eduardo Aunsulo is still out there on social media straight up calling Raniere’s victims, ” liars”.

    Why does this hyper negative know-it-all (check out his Twitter feed) on all subjects, schmuck think he knows better than both Camila and RANIERE what happened and when between the two? Arrogance?

    Was Eduardo living on the tip of Keith Raniere’s penis from when Camilla was 15 years old? Was Eduardo just hiding in a stain on Keith’s filthy mattress while vanguard assaulted and photographed the genitals of women?

    Or is Eduardo just choosing to ignore all of the evidence and believe one disgusting cult leader with a prior history of being a con man over a very large number of credible females from over 20 plus years? And all of the empirical “data”?

  • The Rule 33 motion will be denied

    There was plenty of testimony on this during the first trial from Raniere’s defense who had hired their own experts.

    Cami has already testified under oath about her relationship with Raniere when it came to her settlement in the criminal case

    All this is a dog & pony show of Raniere’s

  • Suneel doesn’t really believe Raniere to be innocent. Suneel is in it for his attachment to wealth, the Bronfman name and the clout he thinks comes with his relationship to Clare.

  • Suneel has gotten wise and hired a solicitor to represent him in court. And not a civil or free speech specialist but a criminal attorney with experience in Unauthorized Use of a Computer and Identity Theft cases: Deborah Jill Blum

    https://www.deborahjblumesq.com/criminal-defense/

    He’s managed to delay proceedings by making a last minute request for clarifications about the order.

    Anyone interested can listen in via phone:

    SCHEDULING ORDER re 164 : Per a phone call received from Mr. Chakravorty on 4/20/2022 requesting clarification of this Court’s March 24, 2022 Order, a hearing is set for 5/5/2022 at 12:15 PM before Chief Magistrate Cheryl L. Pollak. The hearing will proceed via AT&T conference call. Dial 877-336-1839 at 12:15 PM. Enter access code: 380-1746 and security code: 20-0485. So Ordered by Chief Magistrate Cheryl L. Pollak on 4/22/2022.

  • There are a lot of “if’s” here, but everyone is losing sight of what could really be going on.

    If Suneel Chakravorty is a reptilian alien from Arcurus who has been sent to experiment on humans by setting up Keith Raniere as a felon when Vanguard is actualy the 2nd coming Christ, that’s a HUGE deal and way more important than some petty alleged FBI tampering.

    If Keith Raniere and everyone involved in NXIVM are actually holograms projected from a giant device in the sky disguised as “the moon,” that’s a HUGE deal and way more important than some petty alleged FBI tampering.

    If Nancy Salzman is the reincarnation of Adolph Hitler and is plotting to take power again in Germany after her release from prison and send all humans who aren’t NXIVM members to gas chambers that are being secretly built in an underground Antarctic base, that’s a HUGE deal and way more important than some petty alleged FBI tampering.

    Don’t trust “experts”! They are almost part of the plot to obscure the truth, which is always fair.

    Don’t take my word for it, either.

    Do your OWN research.

    In any case, whether Keith Raniere is guilty of the crimes for which he was convicted by a so-called “jury” is irrelevant. Don’t pay any attention to that — it is only a distraction from what’s really going on.

  • Re “Penis size can have a big impact on self-esteem and self-image.”

    What do you think Keith Raniere will think when he learns this and who was very careful to believe or claim that his penis is special or larger than others. Keith is American and has to be told that his penis is probably quite small or too short by international standards.

    A post on this topic and Raniere’s vanity would be an interesting topic to cover.

    Exceptionalism Sagging? American Penises Are Only 59th Biggest In World

    BY TYLER DURDEN

    SATURDAY, APR 23, 2022 – 05:20 AM
    American exceptionalism has led US citizens to believe they’re inherently different than the rest of the world. They presume they’re the best in everything, but this has proven not to be the case over time. The latest example is penis size. This might be traumatizing for some American males, but the US ranks near the bottom of the list in average penis size.

    According to The Sun, citing a new study, Americans have an average erect penis size of 5.35 inches and is shorter than their Ecuadorian, Haitians, French, Germany, Australian, Spanish, and even Indian counterparts. Not too far off from Japanese males at 5.34 inches.

    Online pharmacy From Mars developed a new poll from 86 nations and found the US ranked 59th. The largest were Ecuadorians, coming in at a staggering 6.93-inch average erect length. The smallest was Cambodians at just 3.95 inches.

  • So, Suneel lawyered up with an attorney who spoke out against NXIVM and KR!!! She will represent him in court on Monday.

  • Who gives a crap about Raniere, other than Ms. Pee Onyu?
    What is the FBI doing about Fentanyl imported from China?
    Right across from San Francisco’s Federal Building there is a mess of people doing the Fentanyl Crawl!

    WATCH: Fentanyl Turning Homeless Into Mindless Zombies

  • It feels like the patina of “expert” testimony has mesmerized some people. In many many court cases, both sides have experts who testify for them. The experts disagree with each other. And the jury or judge decides which experts are more believable. Just because Raniere has “experts” doesn’t mean they are right. And it doesn’t mean that the FBI won’t also have experts who contradict them.

    To give just one recent example, many people have claimed that talcum powder causes cancer and have sued over it. Mostly, they have lost at trial. A few have won. Opposing experts testified in each trial. So, does talcum powder cause cancer? Not sure. But it would be a real rush to judgment to say “yes” just because some experts say “yes.”

    • Sadly, I tend to agree with you.

      “This investigation is not about Raniere.”

      “ I believe that vacatur is the proper remedy when a government agency tampers…”

      It’s not about Raniere but Raniere must be set free depending on how the “investigation” turns out. That’s pretzel logic worthy of Nxivm.

      And to even call this an “investigation”, to give it credibility, to pretend it’s some kind of objective search for truth, is a leap of faith. A leap straight into Raniere’s desperate camp of misfits.

      • 100%. It’s a Keith Raniere appologists blog

        Frank speaks with the dead-enders all the time but claims to have no Keith or other convicted Nxivm criminals in prison updates because Tucson was only very recently locked down.That explains nothing about the rest of the time. But he’s always got an excuse.

        Frank knows why and how Keith got himself thrown into the SHU but withholds that info and makes Keith out be a victim.

        These repetitive posts about tampering with no substantial proof. Ad nauseum.

        Promises to post DOS handbook never materialize. Ditto more on SOP.

        In spite of overwhelming evidence Frank pretends to believe Nicki’s marriage to Allison was real. Allison herself says it was not. Lauren says it was not. India admits to commiting a crime by lying for them.

        It’s getting really obvious what’s up here.

  • “Without losing sight of the presumption of innocence, if the FBI tampered with evidence, the prosecution of the bad actors should ensue just as it would if it were you or me.”

    Exactly.

    I wonder whether the obscenely biased “legal expert” here on the Frank Report, “KR Claviger” – and her stans – can grasp this.

    I don’t think so.

    Alanzo

    • —KR Claviger” – and her.”

      Yet, once again the homophobic, sexist, transphobic, self-hating bisexual, Alonzo, taunts Klaviger by referring to him as “her”.

      Alanzo is a cult crusader and pedophile defender, but hates gay people. That makes a lot of sense — if you happen to be nuts. 🥜

      • It is also very uncomfortable and cringey when he tries to use younger slang. (Embarrassment shudder)

        • I could use the more age-appropriate term “…KR Claviger – and her flying monkeys – to enforce her obscene bias here on the Frank Report”.

          There. Does that make you feel more comfortable?

          • —There. Does that make you feel more comfortable?

            Yet again, the wise anti-anti-cultist, Alanzo, provides us with a glimpse of his eternal benevolence.

            Please Note: The ever witty Alanzo is quoting Bill Cosby.

  • This is just another puff piece. Restating everything about this matter that has been written for at least a year. But there is never any actual content or most importantly
    proof about the tampering.

    It is just an accusation parroted by three very creepy looking expert witnesses. Who are paid. They are hired by the DEFENSE to argue whatever they ask. If they were hired by the prosecution they’d say what they want. Expert witnesses are hired guns. Many are self-titled as “experts”. And this will go nowhere.

    Of course, it matters what Camilla says, if there’s a new trial. That’s your expert. She’s the child that was sexually exploited and in the photos. She is a first person expert. The jury will believe her over anyone else.

    Photos won’t even matter if Camilla testifies.

    If there’s a retrial (and there will be if this pie in the sky motion succeds) Keith is well and truly fucked. Honestly, a retrial would be so amazing. Let’s see that pedophile get convicted again!

  • Hours spent interviewing Chakravorty and the supposed experts who have been hired to dig up evidence for his cause is about as informative as talking to the cat.

    And trying to detach this alleged issue of tampering from the Raniere case is a nice pro-Raniere tactic. The tampering allegation is inextricably tied to the “question” of Raniere’s guilt. That’s why these gentlemen’s opinions exist. They were paid for. Paid for by the Raniere cult. It’s the only reason this “question” ever arose in the first place.

    So there is serious doubt as to the objectivity of these hired experts, given the methods and practices of the Raniere cult in the past.

    And where are the facts? All we have are the opinions of three alleged experts, one of whom is a professional trial witness. Another is a disgruntled ex-FBI administrator with ample reasons to denigrate his former employer.

    Opinions are not facts, even if they are “experts”.

    On Feb.26 the Frank Report ran Put Up Or Shut Up, an ultimatum to Chakravorty. I quote:

    “ …you have not presented any evidence…

    It is now one year and four months since you told me – as a journalist – that you had evidence of tampering with the Cami pictures…

    Where’s the proof? All you have is wishful thinking, magical thinking, that your Vanguard who raped that girl, will be released,..

    I don’t believe it…

    your confirmation bias is so astoundingly blinding that any evidence is contorted to your bias. You treat any evidence you have – even the most circumstantial – as dispositive proof that there was tampering.

    Really, Suneel, for a well-educated guy this kind of willful blindness is immoral. We need objective evidence, Suneel. Make your case.
    The asshole raped her. And they found pictures to prove he exploited her.

    It is time now, Suneel, to put up or shut up. If you cannot deliver some evidence within the next 48 hours of tampering,..”

    It’s now two months later. Still no facts. So why should I, or anyone, start believing the Raniere loyalists opinions about hypothetical FBI tampering?

    Forty eight hours has stretched to two months, and still no evidence. There’s a point where absence of evidence becomes evidence of absence. And that point has passed.

    What we have is bait and switch. Substitute opinion for fact and argue that’s just as good.

    Move the goalposts, change the subject, slither like a snake. Raniere taught his minions well.

    Try to keep the question open forever. Just like they do with the “question” of Raniere’s guilt. Now they’re doing it with the “question” of FBI tampering.

    They call it “keeping an open mind”. Pretend like it’s “truth-seeking”.

    And now they have the Frank Report playing their game.

    Well not me. Count me out. I don’t join cults and I don’t believe in conspiracy theories. And rest assured that no matter what they do the Raniere cult is never getting their Vanguard out of prison.

    • Am also sick of the false equivalence gambit on FR. I find it too much of an insult to my very ordinary intellect.

      • Completely agree. They learned it from Keith. When I see it, I tune out.

        There is sleight of hand everywhere. If they were smart, they’d realize that this approach is devaluing whatever legit points they have.

  • Who cares?

    Who guarantees the integrity of the copied data that the NXIVM dead-enders gave to their so-called experts, huh? They could have just as easily tampered with it, and they have an even greater motive to do so. They learned from one of the biggest manipulators and bullshitters on the planet.

  • So you posted up some of the interview clips of Steve Abrams, which I don’t know why you would decide to not post the whole thing as a reporter who claims “The Truth Is Always Fair”?!

    But nevertheless, you never posted up the interview of Dr. Richard Kiper. I would’ve thought that you would’ve done that by now, especially because of his caliber and notoriety in this field and I would think you would want people to hear what he has to say in this completely whole and unfiltered along with Steve Abrams?!

    I also don’t understand why you haven’t posted Suneel, Eduardo, or even Nicki Clyne’s full interview(s) that you did awhile back?!

    This is ridiculous, Frank! What the hell happened to “The Truth Is Always Fair”?! Well not when you fucking clip it!

    Even the mainstream news and all of their corruption will usually post the the full interview with somebody on their website even if they don’t show the whole thing on TV!

    Are you seriously more fucked up than than MSM is?!…….

    Here’s what I want to see from you, sir!

    THE *FULL INTERVIEWS* of:

    Steve Abrams

    Richard Kiper

    Nicki Clyne

    Suneel Chakravorty

    Eduardo Asunsolo

    NO CLIPS! NO BULLSHIT!

    Otherwise like many people say on here, you’re a hypocrite and don’t really give a shit about the truth! Even the courts in the U.S. make you swear by “the *WHOLE TRUTH* and *NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH* so help you God”!

    So let me ask you, Frank, if the truth is TRULY always “fair”, then will you allow the *WHOLE TRUTH* to be present before you say that catch phrase again or will you continue with only presenting small clips of it?!

    If not, then answer this, how is “the truth always fair” if you only give fragments (i.e. clips) of it?!…….

    Food for thought!

  • Keith knew at the trial IF and WHEN he took pictures of Camila.

    If the underage pictures are fake, Keith would have said so in the trial.

    If the underage pictures are legit, the FBI would have no reason to alter them.

    • What if the pictures are legit but they didn’t find them on the hard drive ? And had to plant them. Does that make it ok?

      Suppose Raniere is guilty of exploiting the girl but the FBI had to put the pictures on the hard drive to prove it. Pics they got from someone else. Maybe Camila’s sister who had them.

      • Wowww. Throwing Dani under the bus with NO proof. Classy move.

        Bet you wish that Daniela stayed in that sad, lonely, bare room for another 5 years?

        And not just because she was so beautiful and you’re jealous. You’re also morally bankrupt. And mean-spirited.

        Blinded by Keith’s blue jisim light.

        Keith never even liked you much. Ha ha.

      • ‘What if-ism’ – only attractive on winsome young girls in rom coms. you seem more drunk/been around the block/ very bitter @4am. Drink water and get some sleep, Princess Poison.
