Some of the following is speculation, some observation. Some hard fact.
Take it all with a grain of salt.
By Mary Mary – a Former Insider
Nicki Clyne is possibly the most flippable of the DOS women. Nicki is kind of two-faced. She is not the sharpest knife in the drawer either. But she must realize the jig is up.
Wendy Rosen Brooks is trying to distance herself from the indictments. Her daughter has left NXIVM.
Charmel Bowden is sitting on the fence trying to distance herself. She was supposed to have been branded but the disruption caused by the Frank Report interrupted her scheduled branding session with Dr. Danielle Roberts. At age 60, she would have been one of the oldest branded women.
These women have all committed criminal acts. Keith Raniere got them to participate. They know it and if they thought they might get in real trouble, they might flip.
If Clare is given the green light to contact them, she may be able to hold them in line. They are afraid of Clare and afraid of being exposed in Frank Report.
Like Clare, Nancy Salzman cannot legally communicate with these women – except through intermediaries. Now, Nancy may be ready to flip – and maybe get off of serving any prison time – and Nancy did 10 x the crimes.
If these women knew for sure that Nancy was flipping, they would be far more likely to flip themselves and testify to the financial scheme they all participated in.
Steve Ose was around since the days of Consumers’ Buyline and participated in years of computer corruption. He moved to Texas with his family to work for a former contractor of Clare Bronfman”s.
He needed to get out of town. He is trying to lay low and hopes the statute of limitations passes on some of his computer crimes. He will flip before a fall. He is torn between the fear of the FBI, the fear of Clare Bronfman and the fear of being exposed as a NXIVM member – in his new life – he doesn’t brag about his [former?] devotion to his Vanguard.
Ben Meyers is married to Michelle Salzman. They got married after Keith was arrested and before Nancy did. Theirs was a romance that sprung up when Ben helped jail his girlfriend at one of Clare Bronfman’s properties because she would not sleep exclusively with Keith. There, Ben fell in love with Michelle who helped with the incarceration of the women for 18 months.
Ben also did a lot of computer crimes. He tampered with evidence. He lied in affidavits. He faces the threat of a long time in jail. Michelle has done lots of crooked bookkeeping and also could be indicted.
She assigned Angel Smith to collect the laundered money. I don’t think Angel even knew what she was doing.
I heard that Ben and Michelle pass along messages from Lauren Salzman to Clare and vice versa. Clare cannot communicate directly with Lauren so Ben or Michelle get messages from Lauren to Sara who passes it along to Clare.
Shelly Tarzia, Dazzle Ekblad and Matt McMorris as bookkeepers know a lot.
McMorris has cooked more books than people cook turkeys on Thanksgiving. He is the Power of Attorney for Alex Betancourt, Emiliano Salinas’ lover.
The FBI has spoken to most of them [not Alex] and, as readers know, Shelly is expected to be a witness against Clare and maybe Sara. She handled a lot of their financial doings and they were crooked. Funny they paid Shelly pretty good money despite Clare’s usual cheapness.
Sean Bergeron is a know nothing. After some 12 years in Executive Success Programs – he is still a waiter and like his Vanguard – one horny dude. He goes after other people’s wives, girlfriends, it doesn’t matter. He was recently visited by the FBI and he spoke to them for some time.
The FBI has also talked to the Rainbow nannies.
The NXIVM world is falling apart. But dummies like Sean will try to stay loyal to Vanguard.
Despite what you reported, I believe Sean is still married to Dani Padilla. She is in Monterrey as is Monica Duran and Loreta Garza. Sean was going out with Chelsea for a time but now he has a new gal and she does not seem to be in NXIVM.
I don’t know if Sean married Dani just to get her a green card. They were together for a time, but Sean always had other women and went after other people’s wives, but that is part of the tech – is it not?
Loreta Garza would be hard to flip. She is I believe in Monterrey and isn’t going back to the Albany house bought in her name with laundered money. She is hoping that being away in Mexico will help the Feds forget her role in Rainbow and not indict and extradite her. She reminds me of an ostrich burying its head in the sand and hoping no one notices her.
She is loyal to NXIVM but I am guessing she is shocked by Nancy’s alleged flipping.
Other NXIVM leaders are no doubt assuring her that Nancy is not flipping and the report of it is just more lies on the Frank Report.
Edgar Boone was making as much as $500,000 per year between pyramid scheme style pay from his downline and his share of the money smuggling over the border. But that was years ago. Of course, he did not report all his income.
In recent years, his income went way down. He was always a good salesperson but not a good coach. His head was too confused. As his income went down, his expenses went up.
NXIVM always gets the money out of their members not vice versa.
Edgar has been paying something like $200,000 per year for Rainbow for his triplets and for other NXIVM-related expenses. His father is wealthy, so he does not have to worry about bankruptcy.
His brother went to jail for a drunken driving death crash. He fled to Chicago and was nabbed by Homeland Security, I believe – and brought back to Mexico where he served some prison time.
So Edgar saw his brother try to flee Mexico and get caught in America. He saw his Vanguard flee America and get caught in Mexico. Edgar wants to flee but he realizes that he probably can’t – so he is waiting to see if he will be indicted.
He stopped tweeting in July a few weeks before Clare was indicted. He was expected to be indicted himself. His fears are not entirely unwarranted.
