  • It would seem this is the final nail in Vangone’s coffin – he can’t possibly go to trial now, he’ll plea

  • Krclaviger,

    Bless your soul for the delivery this most Jubilate news on Good Friday and the first day of Passover.

    Is this all a sign from God? Probably not.

    So many praise to you, Krclaviger!!!!

    This news just made my weekend !!!!!!!!
    …..As long as Clare Bronfman gets 5 years or more!!!!!!!!!!

  • Thanks for the update – looking forward to further details of whatever actually transpires. Kathy Russell is hardly a surprise, though it seemed as if there was some small possibility she might hold out as a deluded Raniere loyalist.

    I will definitely have been wrong if Clare Bronfman takes a deal that includes actual time behind bars – I fully expected her to use fight to the bitter end, hoping her money would buy her a better outcome. Perhaps the prospect of all the exposure at trial seemed worse – including possibly also to family members, who might have brought some pressure to bear.

  • “Illegal Entry and Money Laundering (RA 5)Racketeering Act Five alleges a conspiracy to encourage and induce the illegal entry of an alien for financial gain and money laundering. This racketeering act arises out of a scheme by defendants and co-conspirators, including Bronfman, to obtain an investor visa for Jane Doe 3,to work in the United States, by making it falsely appear as if Jane Doe 3 had the funds to qualify for an investor visa, when in fact she did not.”

    RICO statutes being used in connection with illegal aliens and money laundering…This is yuge! How many cases are out there connecting money laundering and illegal aliens and sex trafficking with a big money heiress ( Seagrams) using the RICO statutes? Plus it ties in the Clinton campaign illegal contributions? I said weeks ago that RICO is one of the big sticks to smash the deep state. The wheels of justice may turn slowly but eventually the perps feel the wheel. They are lucky they don’t get this wheel of justice because our constitution has outlawed cruel and unusual punishment.

    • There’s all too much of this that goes on in individual, isolated cases – no grand conspiracy.

      The relatively small donations limited to Clinton’s 2006 Senate campaign, are a sideshow, comparatively. The real question is, how did the Bronfmans and NXIVM buy or otherwise wield the influence they had on the Albany area political, judicial and law enforcement systems? And because of the lingering effects of that, we may never even see any Albany-based cases, or only a very limited federal one on the sex crimes and avoids addressing broader corruption.

  • Dont get too excited. Following the smollet case, the Lori Laughlin mess and given the jurisdiction , we all know they wont do jail time. They each will get a token slap on the wrist, followed by appearances on Dr. Phil.

    • I can understand your pessimism. However this case is so much more than NXIVM and little frontboy Raniere. This is only the tip of the iceberg. Some of these folks that are pleading guilty are also giving information to the right people who are in place to go after their masters.

  • Five moles down in the game of Whack a Mole.

    Now we have the Cult leader Rat left.

    What will Keith Raniere do?

    He’s been passd over on Passover by his past live Nazi’s glas.

    Raniere, Deal or no deal?
    Will he roll the dice or cut a deal himself?

  • Fantastic! As another poster said, all guns will now be pointed at Raniere. As it should be!!

    I wonder if the Court can impose any conditions on Clare Bronfman that would restrict her ability to file more harassment lawsuits.
