In 2007 the media had not quite figured out what #NXIVM was all about, but they were already digging.
While I was doing research for another NXIVM story, I found a very interesting article that was published on October 1, 2007, at The Washington Post.
Most of us have likely heard about the donations from NXIVM members to the #Clinton Presidential Campaign, but there haven’t been a lot of details released about that.
So let’s look at some more of the ties between Bill, Hillary and NXIVM.
All pull quotes are from The Washington Post article, unless otherwise noted.
A purported pyramid-scheme operator who was run out of #Arkansas when #BillClinton was governor has reinvented himself as the head of an upstate group accused of being a “cult” – and his devotees have pumped thousands into #HillaryRodhamClinton‘s presidential run.
Executives and top associates of the #Albany-based NXIVM group – along with their family members – donated $29,900 to Clinton’s presidential campaign, according to federal records.
The above snippet is fairly common knowledge for anyone who has been following the NXIVM case.
But there are things about the specific donors that are not common knowledge in 2019, despite being reported in 2007.
On March 14 and April 13, records show, more than a dozen contributions poured into Clinton’s coffers from NXIVM, an executive and group-awareness training organization led by #Brooklyn-born #KeithRaniere, 47.
Most were from first-time political donors, each giving the $2,300 maximum. (emphasis mine)
Why on earth would first-time political donors pledge the maximum amount?
Was your very first political donation anywhere near $2300?
For a group to donate to a specific candidate, that candidate has their specific interests in mind, one would assume.
If first-time political donors are giving $2300 (the maximum) they would have to believe that the candidate must be someone who really holds their interests at heart.
I don’t think that’s a bad assumption at all. #PedoGate #PizzaGate #SpiritCooking #StopHumanTrafficking #childsextrafficking repost @freedom_faction
