Filmmaker breaks down describing Nxivm's duplicitous ideas and evil intent - 2019-05-09
VillageDianne is out from the courthouse overflow room again with another report from the Nxivm trial. Today, the prosecution is getting testimony from filmmaker Mark Vicente.
But first, we have Dianne's impressions of yesterday's cross-examination of the prosecution's first witness, a former DOS 'slave' named Sylvie…
During the cross-examination it was hard to hear Keith Raniere's attorney Marc Agnifilo at times because he would step to the side of the podium where the mike was located. But he started out by observing to Sylvie that in 2005, her opinion about J'ness was very different than it is today. Yes, she said, she had some positive opinions in the past. And that was the main thrust of Agnifilo's questions, to see if he could get her to express the positive feelings she had about the training and about Keith Raniere and Clare Bronfman.
