American prosecutors in the sex cult racketeering case of NXIVM founder Keith Raniere claim Canadian co-defendant Clare Bronfman, the Seagram’s heiress, has been paying the legal fees of their fellow defendants and even witnesses, and allegedly advising them to keep silent.
This is a “potential conflict of interest” that is “compounded” by the fact that Bronfman is not just a benefactor, but also a defendant, United States attorney Richard P. Donoghue claims.
Bronfman, Raniere, and their four co-defendants in this federal prosecution, including the actor Allison Mack, are accused of what prosecutors describe as a “long-running racketeering conspiracy, among other crimes.” Charges include sex trafficking, identity theft, tax evasion, and involuntary servitude. Salacious details of the group’s rituals have emerged over recent months, including an alleged practice of branding the skin of women recruited as sex slaves.
Bronfman, 39, is part of the Canadian Bronfman family that made its fortune with the Seagram’s liquor distillery business. Her older sister Sara was also deeply involved in NXIVM, so much that their father Edgar Sr., who died in 2013, reportedly made efforts to rescue them from what he called a “cult” and to protect their inheritances after they lost millions in investment schemes.
Just another mega powerful jewish family whose wealth was derived from criminal activities but I guess with today's nigger thug life mindset that makes them heroes.
