Billionaire Clare Bronfman Funds Attorneys for Co-Defendants in NXIVM Cult Trial
Surprises are not always common in entertainment, but today we're thrilled to see that Jewish Billionaire and accused pedophile Clare Bronfman is donating large portions of her Seagram's liquor fortune to finance the defense of every NXIVM pedophile cult member against the Department of Justice.
Trials are currently underway with the efforts of the US Attorney's Office of the Eastern District of New York. Clare Bronfman is financing all of the legal services her co-defendants, in a groundbreaking display of oligarchy versus law and order.
The New York Times was given information about the Cultists having “doctors” who were using hot irons for branding women with Raniere and Mack’s initials.
The recruits of the NXIVM members had an inner circle of elites that called itself the “Dominus Obsequious Sororium,” or D.O.S., played “slaves” to their “masters,” and were urged to go on “near-starvation diets,” per the report.
Leading the investigation into the case is Brooklyn-based Assistant U.S. Attorney Moira Penza, who has so far remained tight-lipped about the prosecutorial aspect of the case.
The strange beliefs, the occult-like worship of both BDSM, slavery, brandings, a private island used for alleged pedophilia-laden underage sex orgies, and the addition of both political influence and Hollywood powerhouses make the NXIVM cult story a real life horror show.
In this article, we'll explore the rise to power of both Cult Leader Keith Raniere, leading membership roles, and the history of the financial backers of the cult, the Bronfman family.
To most, the Bronfman’s are considered the endless funnel of financial incentive for the existence of the cult, going as far as purchasing an entire island and now paying the legal fees of all of the accused involved.
Some say, Clare Bronfman, who is supplying the cash, is hoping she can buy her way out of pressing charges including an array of crimes, including identity theft, extortion, forced labor, sex trafficking, money laundering, wire fraud and obstruction of justice.
Richard P. Donoghue, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, and William F. Sweeney, Jr., Assistant Director-in-Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation, New York Field Office (FBI), announced the superseding indictment.
“As alleged in the superseding indictment, for over a decade, Keith Raniere was the leader of a racketeering conspiracy in which he and members of his inner circle committed a broad range of serious crimes from identity theft and obstruction of justice to sex trafficking, all to promote and protect Raniere and Nxivm,” stated United States Attorney Donoghue. “This Office and the FBI will continue to investigate and prosecute those who prey on others to such destructive effect.”
The Department of Justice is currently prosecuting the NXIVM pedophile cult via the US Attorney's Office in the Eastern District of New York.
The cult was allowed to fly under the radar for years, whereas they've accumulated a massive fortune and membership list of Hollywood celebrities and Democratic Party elected officials, including former President Bill Clinton and never President Hillary Clinton.
“As alleged, this long-running conspiracy crossed multiple avenues of criminal activity, which included, among other things, electronic monitoring; identity theft; extortion; victim smuggling; and illegal trafficking of a victim after a period of unlawful confinement. The details of these alleged crimes become more and grimmer as we continue to dig deeper into the conduct of this organization and its intended mission,” stated FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge Sweeney. “Today’s superseding indictment highlights our commitment to bringing justice to Nxivm’s many victims.”
What we know about the Cult Leader Keith Raniere, the membership of NXIVM, and the Bronfman Family:
Clare Bronfman is a Jewish heiress of the Seagram's Spirits. She's also one of two entitled Democratic Party elites that comes from a long family line of alcoholic beverage producers.
Her grandfather Samuel Bronfman was a Russian Jewish immigrant to Canada, who started a small distillery back in 1924, inevitably purchasing his competitor Seagram's which led to the family fortune.
Clare Bronfman’s father Edgar Bronfman and his brother Charles Bronfman inherited Seagram's back in 1971.
Edgar Bronfman worked for his family distilled beverage firm, Seagram, eventually becoming president, treasurer, and CEO before his untimely death in 1984.
During that time, Bronfman became a global elite, having mingled with some of the world's most influential leaders.
The connections of the Jewish power-broker are a sight to behold, having achieved power that many Presidents, Kings, Emperors, and conquerors would aspire to pursue.
As President of the World Jewish Congress, Bronfman has connections as per diplomatic ties with the Soviet Union and helped write the bloody and horrific Bolshevik history of the region.
The Holodomor, a man-made famine constructed by the Bolshevik influences of the Stalin regime, is responsible for anywhere from 7.7 million to 20 million Christians in Ukraine. To date, the Holodomor is only recognized by Ukraine and 15 other nations as the world's most deadly genocide.
Holodomor is rarely taught in history books because the perpetrators of the genocide are in control of the publishing firms writing books for Academia in both the United States of America and Europe.
Israeli media outlet Haaretz called Edgar Bronfman the “Prince of the Jews,” as the Jewish people idolize him for his proclaimed involvement in both politics, the mass production of alcoholic degeneracy, and philanthropy.

Scholars credit Bronfman as having legitimized the language of Hebrew across Russia, which is also reported via Wikipedia.
By legitimizing the Hebrew language in Russia, and contributing to Soviet Jews earning the right to legally practice Judaism, Bronfman became a folk hero.
Outside of his religious and capitalist enterprises, Bronfman was pushing for Jews to emigrate as dual-Israeli citizens from then-U.S.S.R. into the United Nations-backed occupied land belonging to Palestine known as “Israel,” Bronfman is something of a legend among the tribe.
Edgar's brother Charles is now 87-years-old, and reportedly worth anywhere from $2,400,000,000.00 (two point four billion dollars) to more after the family sold Seagram's to Vivendi for $34,000,000,000.00 back in the year 2000.

Once the family divested their Seagram's ownership, the two sisters Clare and Sara Bronfman, along with half-brother Edgar Bronfman Jr., each inherited an enormous fortune.
Edgar Bronfman Jr. would venture into Hollywood, becoming an award-winning film and music producer in the entertainment world of the liberal and progressive elite. He is not known to have been affiliated with the NXIVM cult, showing how brothers and sisters can be relatively opposite.
It's believed that the ambitions of Edgar were given a platform to venture into Hollywood through the ties of his father to Bill and Hillary Clinton. The Clintons are notorious for their left-wing Hollywood supporters.
Sara Bronfman would enter the realm of political interventionism, having assisted former President Barack Hussein Obama with his “Arab Spring,” overthrowing Muammar Gaddafi in via the U.S.-Libya Chamber of Commerce.

The Arab Spring and the toppling of Gaddafi have to date helped flood Europe with refugees and asylum seekers of wars American and Zionism forces are responsible for, including African Muslim majority countries, and the Middle East.
Outside of her American and Libyan meddling, Sara is well known in Canada's government for the creation of Canada-Libya Chamber of Commerce, which was founded on March 12, 2012, by Bronfman and husband Basit Igtet.

“In 2002, Sara and her sister, Clare, became involved in NXIVM. They had access to about $150 million in trust funds when they joined,” the Frank Report wrote. “Sara also had an affair with the Dalai Lama’s representative in America, Lama Tenzin Dhonden.”
Clare Bronfman took a strange turn along with her sister Sara Bronfman. The pair formed a non-profit organization called the Ethical Humanitarian Foundation after it was "conceptualized" by Keith Raniere in 2007, giving birth to what would eventually become the NXIVM pedophile sex cult.
According to the DOJ complaint, the group had ‘slaves’ and ‘masters’ and “during the branding ceremonies, slaves were required to be fully naked, and the master would order one slave to film while the other held down the slave being branded.”
On the NXIVM website last year, Keith Raniere stated that DOS, which is the elitist secret society of cult, was not associated with the NXIVM.
“As alleged in the complaint, Keith Raniere created a secret society of women whom he had sex with and branded with his initials, coercing them with the threat of releasing their highly personal information and taking their assets,” U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue in the Eastern District of New York said in a statement.
The Dalai Lama gave Keith Raniere the white sash which Raniere would give out a similar sash to beginners in NXIVM Cult.
Keith Raniere is alleged to have been a narcissistic cult leader, acting as if he were a miracle-performing savior of the caliber of Jesus Christ.
The NXIVM website further pads Raniere’s ego saying things like, “Noted as one of the world’s top three problem solvers, Keith Raniere was honored in 1989 by the Guinness Book of World Records in the category of highest IQ. He has an estimated problem-solving rarity of one in 425,000,000 concerning the general population.”
The mainstream media has offered little to no reports about the NXIVM pedophile cult or the ongoing criminal proceedings against the organization. This, in part, is due to the heavy influx of Democratic Party officials and A-list individuals tied to the NXIVM pedophile cult.
At The Goldwater, we've offered extensive coverage of NXIVM and in numerous previous reports have drawn out the connections to Hillary Rodham and William Jefferson Clinton as well as the Clinton Foundation.
Earlier this year, we found that Clare Bronfman financed the construction and maintenance of an entire island in Fiji for her elitist friends and members of NXIVM.
The Jewish Seagram's Heiress was left with a whopping fortune after her father had passed away, where she and sister Sara acquired an estimated $250 to $300 million each out of the billions in assets.
In Yiddish, “Bronfman” means “liquor-man.” The family is of Russian Jewish descent.
Cult leader Keith Raniere, also known as “The Vanguard,” remains held in the custody of the United States government without bond, pending extradition to and from New York for trial.
The total number of accused by way of superseding indictments are former Hollywood actress Allison Mack, the NXIVM founder Keith Raniere, Lauren Salzman, and Nancy Salzman.
For those unaware, Nancy Salzman is a sitting member of the Clinton Global Initiative, which connects the Clinton family directly to a woman whose house is being raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, a huge story, and the mainstream media hasn't processed this yet. Whether that's intentional or not is yet to be determined, although alternative media and investigative journalists are always ahead of the curve since we're doing our research.
She's also listed as a donor to Hillary Clinton's campaign for President in 2007, 2008, and 2016, according to the Federal Elections Commission, and if you input her name into the search results you'll see the data below.
Sometime around the conception of the NXIVM pedophile cult, large amounts of cash were being funneled out of the organization's elite membership and coffers into the campaign and “philanthropic” Clinton Foundation of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

This connection has yet to be explored by the mainstream media, and instead, the Clintons are protected as usual. Typical, considering the Clintons and various high-level Democratic Party donors are affiliated with the mainstream media.
The proof is in the reporting.
We also know that Democratic Senator of New York, Kirsten Gillibrand.
Page Six reported that Seagram Heiress Clare Bronfman is the largest supporter of NXIVM, and she's also listed as a top contributing donor to the Kirsten Gillibrand in 2010, linking another high-profile elite to a sex trafficking cult that enslaved and tortured women.
Page Six continued, “The lawmaker’s [Kirsten Gillibrand’s] dad, Doug Rutnik, worked as an attorney for Nxivm for four months in 2004 at a rate of $25,000 per month. “When he wanted to quit, he was falsely sued” on dubious grounds, said one source. “He ended up paying them back the $100,000 he’d been paid and signing a confidentiality agreement.'”
“Investigators said that Raniere preferred exceptionally thin women, so ‘slaves’ had to stick to very low-calorie diets and document every food they ate,” CBS reported on Raniere’s arrest. “As punishment for not following orders, women were forced to attend classes where they were ‘forced to wear fake cow udders over their breasts while people called them derogatory names,’ or threatened with being put in cages, court papers say.”
While unconfirmed, gossip has surfaced suggesting that Salzman told the court that due to a life-threatening illness she's seeking to cut a plea deal just last month. Back in August of 2017, she had tried to recruit others into the cult by claiming she had breast cancer and would use the NXIVM technology to “heal” her cancer.
“It would be pretty unusual for a defense lawyer not to consider what the government has to say,” her attorney Robert Soloway said when asked about the possibility that he was in discussions with the government to cut a deal for Salzman.
Salzman had her home raided by FBI Agents just one day after US Marshals found Raniere inside of Mexico, bringing him back into New York to face trial by way of extradition.
It was inside of Nancy Salzman’s home that Agents uncovered nearly $500,000 in cash and her eventual arrest on racketeering charges that put her into the spotlight.
Raniere and Mack are each charged with sex trafficking and conspiracy; for allegedly coercing women into joining a secretive master-slave society within NXIVM cult— where their “slaves” were forced to both orally and vaginally pleasure Raniere. As we mentioned prior, they went as far as to have his initials permanently branded onto their skin, and performed free physical labor as if they were “slaves.”
Keith Raniere claimed in speeches to his followers that he “wasn't born,” but rather “planted by our invisible alien overlords to be hatched” on August 26th of 1960
Per instruction, he claims he was raised by his father and his Mother who worked as a ballroom dancing instructor.
Keith, or rather “Vanguard,” would claim to have “all the necessary social skills to prepare the world for their return,” prophesying that the overlord extraterrestrials has chosen him.
He said that by producing the ”Kwisatz Haderach,” an old Chakobsa term that translated literally as "Shortening of the Way,” through a breeding program that had him as the only male, genetic contributor.
The new age religion apparently gathered serious financial influencers, such as that of Clare Bronfman.
Taking his cues from Cult leaders through the ages such as L. Ron Jeremy, Jim Jones, and even Aleister Crowley; in that it is much easier to invent a past than have actually lived what you claim. Raniere has a list of accomplishments that can only be referred to as chimerical.
Raniere claims to have founded countless successful companies in the past all across the world. That isn't correct, according to federal prosecutors, who say he's only interested in producing impressive profits for his investors.
In 2017, The New York Times reported that a "secret sisterhood" within NXIVM referred to female members as "slaves", branded them with Raniere's initials, and required them to provide nude photos or other potentially damaging information about themselves if they wished to join. In March 2018, Raniere was indicted on federal charges after being arrested in Mexico on sex trafficking charges.
In October 2017, The New York Times published an article which detailed women's experiences being branded while under the supervision of senior NXIVM executive Nancy Salzman, whose home was just raised today by the FBI, and is a member
On December 15, 2017, the ABC news magazine 20/20 aired an exposé featuring interviews with many former NXIVM adherents; the report included an interview with the mother of actress India Oxenberg, who alleged that her daughter was in danger due to the group. Several former members reported financial and sexual predation carried out by NXIVM leaders.
Questions we have long-since asked about the NXIVM pedophile cult have largely remained unanswered due to the unimpressive reporting of mainstream media.
Those who claim to be “journalists” in today's American press avoid focusing on the powerful connections of the NXIVM cult, and the Bronfman family.
39-year-old Clare Bronfman, who holds over $200 million from the Seagram's fortune, is now on trial for racketeering along with child-trafficking Hollywood elite and “Smallville” star Allison Mack, and the leader of the Democratic Party-connected sex cult NXIVM, Keith Raniere.
With three other top-ranking members of the NXIVM pedophile sex cult currently facing trial, in which many of those people are connected to the Democratic Party’s bastion of elite politicians, there are several unanswered questions.
Just what kind of a pedophile cult are we talking about here? Has this escalated into a child-sex trafficking scandal, potentially international?
Why were the Clintons taking cash from this group? How do the Clintons know the cult originally, through Bronfman Sr.?
Why is Senator Gillibrand and celebrities like Richard Branson and Allison Mack photographed together, yet deny that Branson played any role in the cult? Is Allison Mack facing serious sex trafficking charges?
Local 10 ABC also spoke to several witnesses who live near Oregon Trail, of which claimed they'd seen some of the victims coming and going from several homes on the street over the years.
“We first hand witnessed the sleep deprivation of girls who looked emaciated and walked with Raniere,” the witness said. “I actually shouted out my window for him to shut up. That we were families and we had young children. And they would walk 24 hours a day sometimes.”
Unsurprisingly, a former girlfriend of Raniere himself has also spoken out to ABC 10, saying, “He was my boyfriend. I was his girlfriend. There wasn’t a harem of women around him.”
Toni Natalie lives in Rochester now, but described the practices of Raniere as a “reign of terror,” further labeling the cult leader as a sadistic man.
Natalie says that Raniere first built the foundation of the NXIVM when he met Nancy Salzman in 1997.
“Keith needed that admiration. He needed to be idolized. And that was not something he was going to get from me.”
Natalie says she went to several “sessions” with Salzman at that time before eventually leaving Raniere in 1997.
“The last time I saw Keith was in April of 1999 and the last thing he said to me was ‘I will see you dead or in jail.'”
So what we're seeing is a man who not only enslaved women, potentially entire families, but also threatened murder, and also donated to Hillary Clinton's campaign for President as well as having founded the cult with Salzman, who sits on the Clinton Global Initiative, Bill Clinton's charity, and the media hasn't blinked an eye. Stunning.
For years similar allegations against the Clintons have been labeled as merely being “conspiracy theories,” and this arrest and FBI raid underscores that those attempts were misleading and propaganda to favor the Clintons.
Federal agents arrested NXIVM co-founder Nancy Salzman, her daughter Lauren Salzman along with longtime bookkeeper Kathy Russell after Raniere and Mack were brought in to accompany Bronfman for her role.
More concerning than the blackout via media coverage of the trial is that Bronfman is being allowed to bankroll the defense fees for all attorneys of her alleged co-conspirators.
The justice system is designed to bring about the best possible punishment for those guilty of serious crimes, and Bronfman’s finances seem to have been able to undermine that system.
Providing her co-defendants with the best attorneys money can buy would likely bring less chance that any deal is made with prosecutors, hoping that they can win over a jury of their peers.
Radar Online reports of a “shady trust fund,” which was set up anonymously to finance those on trial.
The judge questioned Raniere’s attorney, Marc Agnifilo, who spoke on behalf of all defendants, about why they’d hide this information.
“Do you think it’s significant for the court to know who created [the trust]?” the judge asked.
“On June 12, I told your honor,” Agnifilo said. “I told the government there was an irrevocable trust. We didn’t discuss the source.”
This brings about legal uncertainty, as there is no legal mandate preventing Bronfman from paying the attorney fees or others. However, it's ultra rare if not a first time that such a high profile case is having these financial issues surrounding legal fees.
To most, it would seem that a well-financed group of democratic party elites would benefit greatly from the least-possible conviction and sentence of the accused, if not an acquittal.
The information that Allison Mack, Keith Raniere, Nancy and Lauren Salzman, and Clare Bronfman likely have on several global elites could be devastating, and we're watching as she buys her way out of justice.
Where do we draw the line on what's acceptable?
The NXIVM case will surely decide this, dependant upon the actions of federal judges and prosecutors in coming days.
Watch the trial closely, because it's about to set a precedent for the future.
