Five More Arrests in NXIVM Sex-Cult and Human-Trafficking Investigation…

In April actress Allison Mack was arrested as part of an extensive investigation into a sick and twisted sex-cult connected to powerful Hollywood interests and New York political influence agents.

Today, Clare Bronfman (right), the wealthy billionaire daughter of former Seagram chairman Edgar M. Bronfman, was arrested amid a group of five more women.

NEW York – […] The new charges add a bizarre twist to a sensational case that generated headlines with the April arrest of Allison Mack, 35, an actress who allegedly recruited slaves for Raniere. A month earlier, Raniere, 57, was apprehended in Mexico and accused of sex trafficking and forced labor. He’s being held without bail. Both deny wrongdoing.

Bronfman, 39, is one of seven children of her father, a second-generation heir who captained Seagram’s expansion during his years leading the company. She, Kathy Russell, 60, Lauren Salzman, 42, and Nancy Salzman, 64, were allegedly members of Raniere’s inner circle who recruited and groomed sexual partners for him.

Prosecutors said Nxivm operated like a pyramid scheme, charging participants thousands of dollars for courses while encouraging them to sign up for more and recruit others. Raniere created a “secret society” within the organization in 2015, known as DOS, with women serving as “slaves” overseen by “masters,” according to prosecutors.

Recruits were expected to provide “collateral” before joining — including damaging information about friends and family, nude photographs and rights to assets — that could be used against them if they revealed the existence of the organization or tried to leave, prosecutors said. Many “slaves” were branded on their pelvic areas with a cauterizing gun with a symbol that incorporated Raniere’s initials, according to prosecutors. (read more)

    Ohhh so sad….lol~~~

    A lawyer for Kathy Russell, 60, complained that her client only has $2,000 in her bank account and counting beans for the self-help sect is her sole source of income — but the judge said too bad.

    “She’s gotta branch out,” said Judge Nicholas Garaufis as Russell was arraigned on racketeering charges in Brooklyn federal court.

    Russell — who is accused of helping Nxivm leader Keith Raniere commit identity theft in a scheme to smuggle a non-citizen into the US through Canada — entered a not guilty plea and was allowed to stay out of jail on a $25,000 bond, put up by a pal in Alaska.

    I never even saw this before. Sick twisted people~~~

    NEW YORK—Dozens of children fell ill from a mysterious disease at a retreat hosted in New York by the notorious NXIVM cult, according to a report by the New York State Department of Health.

    The 16-page report centers on Brandon Porter, NXIVM’s doctor, and accuses him of failing to report the outbreak of the disease. The document also accuses Porter of conducting a barrage of shocking human experiments, such as showing scenes of gruesome murder and decapitation to test subjects without their consent.
    He suggests that Raniere may have experimented with the food served at the event, using the students as test subjects “to learn some important lesson about human reaction.”

    “It might have been a drug experimentation on Keith’s part,” Parlato wrote.

    “Dr. Brandon Porter was there. Maybe somebody should ask him.”
