Clare Bronfman pleads guilty in NXIVM case
Apr 22, 2019
Clare Bronfman, heir of the Seagram’s whiskey fortune, has decided to plead guilty after everyone around her did the same. It seems she really had no choice, because even her sister Nancy Salzman is telling investigators everything she knows. This is an important event, because now the case will not drag on for months, and there will be multiple cases spawned from this one. The problem of human trafficking is rampant among politicians and corporate executives.
Bronfman will be getting off quite easy, actually, which indicates that her testimony against others is extremely valuable.
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Seagram liquor heiress Clare Bronfman pleaded guilty on Friday to harboring an illegal immigrant and enabling credit card fraud as part of an alleged sex cult based in upstate New York.
Bronfman, 40, entered her plea to the two criminal counts before U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis in federal court in Brooklyn, New York. She is one of several people charged in connection with a secretive organization called Nxivm, which federal prosecutors have described as a racketeering organization.
