Keith Raniere's attorney wants to bar evidence of Nxivm going after its enemies - 2019-05-14
Although there was no new testimony for the jury today, our correspondent Dianne Lipson says a fascinating dispute happened between the prosecution and defense over evidence found in Nxivm "prefect" Nancy Salzman's house. Here's her dispatch…
As previously advised, there is no testimony today because an alternate juror was sick. She is expected to be well tomorrow. However the lawyers and the judge discussed a matter concerning evidence found at Nancy Salzman's house.
In addition to the half million in cash and the electronic devices found when law enforcement searched Salzman's house, there was a plastic box containing financial records for Edgar Bronfman Sr., cult expert Rick Ross, reporters (including from the Albany Times Union), Toni Natalie, federal judges, politicians, political operatives, The World Jewish Congress, and Nxivm's own lawyers. Some of the materials contained hand-written notes by Kristen Keefe, who was in charge of the operation. Keefe had the role of Nxivm's legal liaison, though she herself was not an attorney.
