[Opinion] Seagram’s liquor heiress Clare Bronfman is scheduled for sentencing today. She used her fortune to fund the notorious sex-trafficking cult, Nxivm.
According to a report in the New York Post, last year Bronfman pleaded guilty to charges related to her role as a top accomplice of Nxivm’s cult-ish leader and sexual deviant Keith Raniere.
The 41-year-old faces 30 months behind bars under federal sentencing guidelines — but prosecutors are asking for twice that, noting the extreme privilege she came from, not to mention her alleged lack of remorse.
“Bronfman did not commit these crimes out of need,” Brooklyn prosecutors wrote in a blistering sentencing memo earlier this month.

Bronfman pleaded guilty last August to charges of conspiracy to conceal and harbor an illegal alien for financial gain and fraudulent use of identification.
Her time at the side of self-help guru-turned-sex trafficker Raniere included her bringing young women into the country illegally, prosecutors have said.

Seagram’s heiress and accused Nxivm benefactor Clare Bronfman tried to buy influence for the alleged sex cult by illegally raising money for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, a former group member testified in court Monday.
Bronfman funneled thousands of dollars into Clinton’s campaign coffers — far in excess of legal limits to contributions — to “curry favor” with the powerhouse political family, according to Mark Vicente, a documentary filmmaker and former member of the Nxivm group that is accused of keeping women as sex slaves.
Recalling the incessant and repetitive questions posed to candidate Donald Trump after a former member of the KKK endorsed him, an endorsement he quickly renounced, why hasn’t Hillary Clinton ever been asked about her donor’s ties to sex-traffickers?
