More Reasons Why Allison Mack, Nancy Salzman and Clare Bronfman Were Not Called as Witnesses

By Shivani

This is in response to K. R. Claviger’s post  Why Weren’t Some Potential Witnesses Called By The Prosecution?

By the way, that photo of Clare Bronfman is bone chilling and freakish. I’ve never seen it before.

This is the government exhibit photo of Clare Bronfman, the prosecution used to show the jury.

She looks demonic and it is as if it’s a mugshot in a bad movie kind of a facial expression, too.

Claviger mentioned – among those who could have been called as witnesses but were not called  – Joe O’Hara – writing that he was a convicted felon.

Claviger wrote “which automatically means he would have no credibility” to testify for the prosecution in Raniere’s case.

Nancy and Lauren Salzman, Allison Mack and Clare Bronfman are convicted felons too.

From a variant point of view, here’s.another slate of reasons how come these goblins didn’t get to testify, with Lauren being the exception here.

This is the photo the government used of Lauren Salzman in exhibits in the trial against Keith Alan Raniere.
Allison Mack’s government exhibit photo.

1) Allison Mack: Mack would have had to come up as witness before so many other witnesses were called who crucified her during their testimony. She lost credibility as a potential witness by exactly what was exposed about her in court.

Also, as the trial progressed, additional input from more witnesses became unnecessary to convict Raniere, and it would have become too repetitive. You learn to get a feel for the jury and never risk losing any of them to oversaturation.

2) Clare Bronfman: She arranged or at least semi-arranged an “understanding” that she would not be testifying, probably as part of her plea deal and perhaps somewhat nebulously. Her ivory tower is going to crash later.

3) Nancy Salzman: She was seen coming and going as a clever swine of a woman. She was not only a buffoon trying to act like a qualified therapist/executive. Nancy Salzman handed her daughters’ lives over to Raniere, and the prosecution team was well aware of this. It’s very likely, especially after deposing Lauren Salzman, that the prosecutors would find it more expedient to do their work without a word from Nancy Salzman’s twisted mouth.

    • I think both of you are projecting what you know about Bronfman into her image. If you didn’t know who she was, the question would be – if she was smiling a little more to show her missing teeth, do you think she’s descended from her brother/mother or father/daughter, and is she from Arkansas or West Virginia?

  • As was mentioned in your last report of why certain reasons people didn’t testify, you had said Toni Natalie had committed crimes that could be brought up in cross examination.

    Are there more than the computer trespassing case that she and others took and a plea deal on?

    Did her deal mean that after a certain time frame her & others records would be expunged of this crime as long as they didn’t break any other laws.

    They weren’t found guilty but the charges were not just dropped.

  • “Mack would have had to come up as witness before so many other witnesses were called who crucified her during their testimony. She lost credibility as a potential witness by exactly what was exposed about her in court.”

    Who? there is 1 damning witness, another one is not even connected and except a couple of mentions by Lauren, she wasn’t cited by anyone but Vicente and he defended her.
    An Lauren’s mention mostly discharge Allison.

    That is not true, nothing said in court would have destroyed her credibility…only lies would.
    It’s only because she could have given a context and support further the demonstration that she was a victim…There is no other Reason (atleast, none logical).
