Update on Bronfman: Judge rules Clare can leave house for limited time – 7 days per week – to go to church, join fitness club

The terms of Clare Bronfman’s home detention are in writing on PACER [www.pacer.gov] – the Federal Government website  that records all federal court filings. The public can access on PACER documents for a fee.

The minutes from her last court appearance state that Clare Bronfman can – with prior arrangement with Pretrial Services – leave her luxury apartment in Manhattan every day of the week for a limited time period each day.

Here is the “Minute Entry for proceedings held before Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis”:

“Bail Hearing as to Clare Bronfman held on 8/21/2018. The $50 million in cash, securities, and other collateral needed to secure the bond has been finalized.

“Clare Bronfman will continue to be subject to home detention, but she is permitted to leave her residence for attorney visits, court dates, and religious services. She is also permitted to leave her residence for 90 minutes, three days per week, for exercise and shopping for food or other necessities, but only after providing advance notice to Pre-Trial Services.

“On the other four days of each week, she is permitted to visit a fitness center for exercise on a schedule that Pre-Trial Services must approve in advance.

“Additionally, she may not directly or indirectly associate or have contact with–except in the presence of her attorneys–current or former employees of, or independent contractors, for NXIVM (including any and all affiliated entities), any individual that she knows to be a current or former member of DOS, or any individual who is currently, or was formerly, on the Stripe Path, subject to reasonable exceptions agreed upon by the parties.

“The court directed Clare Bronfman to submit a legal memorandum to the court regarding some of the bail conditions to which she objects by September 4, 2018, and the court directed the government to respond by September 11, 2018.”


Still pending before the court is whether Clare can freely communicate with a NXIVM member – and her longtime bookkeeper – believed to be Michelle ‘Shelly’ Tarzia – who is expected to be a witness for the prosecution. The judge has not yet made a decision.

The prosecution objects to Clare speaking with the bookkeeper alone – but has no objection to Clare employing the bookkeeper – provided she only speak with her with a defense attorney present. The concern of the prosecution is that Clare might tamper with, bribe or intimidate the witness.

At her last appearance, Clare sought the right to spend the entire day out of her Manhattan apartment with limited travel to parts of Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn. Her attorney, Susan Necheles, indicated Clare was restless in her luxury apartment because she was used to jogging and being active outdoors and that the unfair restrictions on Clare were simply imposed by the judge because of her wealth.

She asked the court to allow Clare to be able to leave at 6:00 AM and return each night to her apartment at 8:00 PM. The judge denied this request but gave her attorneys leave to ask again in October.

It was read into the record at her bail hearing that several victims filed a letter with the court about her bail terms. It is assumed the victims strongly opposed her release from home detention. The judge has not made the letter public.

Clare’s attorney however scoffed at the letter, condemning its contents and authorship – essentially decrying the idea that there were any victims of Clare or that they had anything to fear from her client.

On my website, Frank Report, I raised concerns that Clare Bronfman may not have disclosed her complete financial holdings to the court – perhaps, for example, leaving off her extensive real estate holdings in and around Los Angeles.  That and the fact that she moved millions of dollars offshore – just prior to forming trusts with Goldman Sachs – might prompt the Feds to seek a full-scale forensic audit of her finances.

A few months prior to her indictment (but likely after she knew she was one of the targets of a Federal investigation), Clare put about $125 million in the hands of trustees with Goldman Sachs – in a trust with terms that she cannot replace the trustees or direct them as to how to spend the money on her.  This may have been done following advice of counsel as a protective move to avoid seizure – since the money is technically not in her control but in trust with her as beneficiary.

It is believed that in addition to the trust, millions of dollars were moved in April in anticipation of her indictment – some of it going offshore.  Curiously, Clare initially neglected to mention her holdings on Wakaya Island in Fiji to the court. When caught by the judge, her attorney said she did not list that asset because the property was undergoing renovation.

It is unclear why Bronfman failed to disclose her real estate holdings in Los Angeles to the court – unless, of course, she had previously transferred them to her sister, Sara, or someone else to keep them outside the court’s purview.

It has been widely noted that Sara Bronfman-Igtet did not appear in Brooklyn to help Clare make bail in late July – but pledged some $8 million of US real estate for Clare’s bail package.

Some speculate that Sara chose not to appear because she feared being arrested once in US jurisdiction. Sara is reportedly in France or England. France does not always accommodate the US with extradition requests. [if anyone knows Sara’s exact whereabouts, please advise me at frankparlato@gmail,com].

Clare’s various financial schemes might be for naught.  Sources say the Feds are not done investigating Clare and while the current charges are relatively few, there may be additional charges coming.

If it is proven Clare that misled the court about her assets, the prosecution might seek to have her bail revoked and have her remanded to Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) to spend her days in the women’s section of the same prison that her VanguardKeith Alan Raniere – resides in while he awaits trial.

Although they might be housed in the same facility, the two would not be able to communicate because MDC separates women from men.

In the meantime, Clare can now go to church or temple, join a gym, shop, jog, etc. for approximately an hour and a half every day.

She cannot spend time with NXIVM members – for such contact is strictly forbidden. For years, she has had a cadre of NXIVM minions – paid mostly at rates of some $15 per hour – to do her bidding.

The servant problem is tough in Manhattan but it appears, at least for now, she will have to make do with non-NXIVM servants.

Don’t be surprised if Clare, like Allison, makes a request to go outside the home for school, volunteer work, or even a job for her purported betterment. It might be granted if Pretrial Services approves and the prosecution does not object.

  • Just read a blind item reveal on cdan saying that freaks are paying to have sex with Allison Mack. How is this possible? Any truth in that?!!!!

    • Blind Items Revealed #2
      August 16, 2018

      This former A- list mostly television actress from a hit almost network show will probably never get another acting job again. The thing is though, there are producers and directors who are willing to throw thousands of dollars her way to hook up with her just so they can say they did it. This includes males and females. She gets a dozen offers a day and asked someone in power to let her have the chance to meet them all without saying it exactly in those words.

      Allison Mack


  • Suddenly these woman have found religion? Did Clare or Alison attend church before this?

  • Does it also include time for her to stop by a dumpster to pick up some new clothing?

  • When I first came on this site in the aftermath of Raniere’s arrest a common refrain was, “Why won’t the government protect us from Keith Raniere?”
    It is not the government’s job to baby sit you.
    You must protect yourselves.
    “The Gods help those who help themselves.”

    If anything, the government will protect rich powerful people like the Bronfmans and leave the sheeple to be fleeced.

    First of all you must be intelligent enough to stay out of cults or leave them if you find you’re in one.
    Say what one will about Kristin Kreuk, at least she eventually saw that NXIVM was a dangerous cult and ultimately, quietly left.
    And for that Kreuk is constantly vilified.
    Allison Mack stayed on enticed by the Bronfmans’ wealth and Raniere’s Rasputin-like powers and to many is considered a tragic hero.

    Many people in New York and states like Illinois and California see the non-stop corruption and scams and vote with their feet by leaving.
    If New York won’t or can’t reform itself it behooves you to vote with your feet and leave.

    Remember the saying, “Freedom is not Free.”
    It requires sacrifice and danger.

  • Clare isn’t Christian to go to a Church. She’s a rich Zionist from a well known Jewish family. That is why she is getting it easier than those who would’ve been charged with the same crimes but didn’t have the wealth or the family connection and name.

    When did these women (Clare, Allison, Sarah) ever care about going to church or the temple while fucking monks and an atheist conman? Give me a fucking break.

  • The judge has cost a lot of people there living since Clare cannot hire them. No guilt by the judge and no due process. The judge is On the side of the prosecutor. Many Nxivm members were working for Clare doing important jobs. But the judge shut it down. This is tyranny. Now Clare and Vanguard will make their plan and don’t be surprised if the judge is removed from this case for his bias. Keith is the smartest man. He will come out with a plan. Clare is not without resources and she has the best attorney in new York Susan Necheles. So this hanging judge who keeps People from working and driving many to Mexico to work is going to have to deal with Necheles who Mohr make a motion for his removal from the case for bias.

      “The judge has cost a lot of people there living since Clare cannot hire them. No guilt by the judge and no due process.”

      Yes Pea/ Nicki, we know you lost your job at the Knife of Aristotle.

      “Many Nxivm members were working for Clare doing important jobs. ”

      Yes, Allison was busy telling the DOS slaves when to service the Vanguard.

    • Pea give this link to some total stranger and also a family member who is not in your cult and get them both to go through these points with you. If you align with one under each number with both please seek help.

      Ignore number 1 as if you attended the 13 hour courses for days on end, you are already at that point and have probably completed it.


      P.S. this website link is independent and nothing I can influence btw.

    • so go get a job, Pea. The local McDonalds may pay as well as Clare does. Or use your experience at the important jobs you’ve been doing for Clare to beef up your resume for an even more important job.

      As for Clare – she can still hire people to come clean her home, do her shopping, etc.; they just can’t be NXIVM people. So maybe she’ll finally have to pay real prices for the services she wants since most people want fair pay for the work they do.

      And when all this legal wangling and trials are over, you can always go back to work for her if she manages t o stay out of prison.

  • Agree about things looking like the fix is in. What regular person when facing these kinds of charges would be allowed freedom to pursue these activities? Too bad about her previous lifestyle. I have never heard that being taken into account when one is under arrest. And does her previous lifestyle include religious services? My understanding is that she worshipped Vanguard. So does that give her permission to go to his cell for worship?

  • Did I say a few days ago that “The Fix Is In”?

    Now all of NXIVM’s elite is free to covertly communicate with one another.
    Except for Raniere and he was to busy eating and copulating to run NXIVM.

    • ……but many of the rest of us think you are an asshole. Your frequent posts and absolute lack of a life make you one of the most pitiful of the characters one encounters in the whole NXIVM Universe. At least Bronfman, Salzman, Mack et al had a purpose in life, no matter how misguided. You are mere algae floating on the Frank Report Tide.

      • I was never raised to give a damn about what the crowd thinks.
        Look at the stinking mess New York State is.
        Overcrowded airports.
        Subways that are hot and under frequent repair.
        The highest taxes in America.
        Bossy politicians like Michael Bloomberg.

        It is filled with voters who go along to get along and that’s why NXIVM flourishes in New York.

        The people in New York get precisely the type of government you deserve.

        “New York is the least free state in America, Cato Institute says”

      • Here’s the truth whether you like it or not.
        The people of New York live in one of the least free states in America where the political machine works for the powerful like the Bronfmans.
        And because you tolerate the rampant corruption you are condemned to live under the thumb of political machines and their criminal affiliates like NXIVM.

        And this is perhaps the most asinine statement I have seen in months:
        “At least Bronfman, Salzman, Mack et al had a purpose in life,”

        What was their purpose in life?
        To torture, swindle and enslave other people.

        With an attitude like that no wonder the people of New York are constantly being victimized by Cuomo, Bloomberg, Schumer, Gillebrand, DeBlasio and the whole parade of clownish politicians in the Empire State.
        Hitler and Stalin had purposes in life and there are millions of corpses to testify to those purposes.

        Compliant New Yorkers are the authors of their own discontent.
