Clare Bronfman, a Hillary Clinton donor has been arrested as part of the ongoing case against upstate New York’s NXIVM sex cult.
The NXIVM sex cult was financed by Bronfman and led by Keith Raniere and Allison Mack, who have both been charged with human trafficking.
Bronfman is reported to have performed human experiments on people at the cult’s Rainbow Cultural Garden, according to a former cult employee.
Bronfman also reportedly hacked Hillary Clinton’s emails through emails that Clinton exchanged with Bronfman’s father Edgar.
“Three other people — including NXIVM co-founder Nancy Salzman and her daughter, Lauren — were arrested in the Albany area in connection with the NXIVM case on Tuesday, according to Tyler Daniels, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Bronfman, the Salzmans, and Kathy Russell will be arraigned on racketeering conspiracy charges Tuesday afternoon. Lauren Salzman will also face two other conspiracy charges. Bronfman, who lives in the Albany area, is a longtime bankroller of NXIVM, which was founded by Salzman and Keith Raniere in the late 1990s.”
A liquor heiress is facing charges of funding a suspected US sex cult whose recruits were allegedly branded with the initials of its founder.
Seagram scion Clare Bronfman, 39, is accused of using her fortune to help finance Nxivm‘s operations.
Investigators say the organization is a sex-trafficking operation disguised as a mentoring group.
Six people have now been charged as part of the inquiry, including 35-year-old Smallville actress Allison Mack.
Ms. Bronfman’s lawyer said her client “did nothing wrong”.
