The FBI assigned Kiper to the FBI Academy as chief of investigative training in 2011. He reported problems to the training division’s leadership. He said the division misled the Office of Management and Budget about the training of new agents and analysts.
He made disclosures to the highest-ranking officials at his work site. He hoped these FBI executives would make positive changes.
Kiper said, “I was just trying to do the right thing — as I’ve always done.”
Instead, the FBI demoted Kiper from a GS-15 to a GS-13 position and transferred him to another division.
“If every other law enforcement and intelligence agency can protect disclosures of waste, fraud, or abuse… why can’t the FBI?” said Grassley. “Whistleblowers should not have to fear retaliation for speaking up… And, they should not have to rely on Congress to see justice done.”
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.
Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premieres on May 22, 2022.
