The FBI raided the Saratoga County, New York residence of Clinton Global Initiative member Nancy Salzman on Tuesday.
The hours-long search of Salzman's single-family residence on Oregon Trail in Halfmoon, NY took place a day after Keith Raniere, the leader and a co-founder of NXIVM, the secretive Colonie-based organization, was arrested in Mexico on charges of sex trafficking and forced labor.
He was sought by the FBI based on a federal criminal complaint filed the U.S. attorney's office in Brooklyn, which opened an investigation of Raniere's organization last fall.
NXIVM is a multi-level marketing organization that offers personal and professional development seminars. Based in Albany County, New York, NXIVM was founded in 1998 by Keith Raniere. News reports and former members have referred to NXIVM as a cult.
In 2017, The New York Times reported that a "secret sisterhood" within NXIVM referred to female members as "slaves", branded them with Raniere's initials, and required them to provide nude photos or other potentially damaging information about themselves if they wished to join. In March 2018, Raniere was indicted on federal charges after being arrested in Mexico on sex trafficking charges.
In October 2017, The New York Times published an article which detailed women's experiences being branded while under the supervision of senior NXIVM executive Nancy Salzman.
On December 15, 2017, the ABC news magazine 20/20 aired an exposé featuring interviews with many former NXIVM adherents; the report included an interview with the mother of actress India Oxenberg, who alleged that her daughter was in danger due to the group. Several former members reported financial and sexual predation carried out by NXIVM leaders.
This is the type of person that Hillary and Bill Clinton found desireable to be members of the Clinton Global Initiative. Given Bill Clinton's alleged proclivities toward women to whom he is not married, it seems to "fit" that he and his wife would find folks involved in Sex Trafficking, very valuable.

TV Actress Allison Mack is allegedly named as CC1 in the federal complaint against Keith Raniere.
She is expected to be arrested shortly, sources say.

As of yesterday, Mack was in Mexico, living with Raniere.
Raniere himself was arrested yesterday by Federal Police in Mexico and immediately extradited to the USA.
It is believed the actress, who appeared in the hit TV show ‘Smallville’, will face sex trafficking charges.
Mack, 34, has been a member of NXIVM since 2006. Sources say she gave up her acting career at the direction of NXIVM leader Keith Raniere aka ‘Vanguard’. She works closely with NXIVM leader Clare Bronfman, an heir to the Seagram’s fortune.
Raniere, Bronfman and Mack are believed to have conspired to form and fund the brutal ‘master-slave cult’, which depends on blackmail to keep women in slavery.
Bronfman allegedly financed the entire operation. There has been no comment from the Bronfman family or their trustees.
The women who were coerced into slavery were branded on their pubic region with a hot iron in an excruciatingly painful procedure with the initials of Raniere and Allison Mack.

Keith Raniere — the co-founder of an allegedly torturous and psychologically manipulative secret society, NXIVM — was arrested by police in the resort town of Puerto Vallarta and brought to Texas on Monday, according to the Brooklyn US Attorney’s office.
“Keith Raniere displayed a disgusting abuse of power in his efforts to denigrate and manipulate women he considered his sex slaves,” FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge William Sweeney said.

“These serious crimes against humanity are not only shocking, but disconcerting to say the least, and we are putting an end to this torture today.”
Raniere’s influence extended to Hollywood where he roped in Smallville star Allison Mack who allegedly recruited 25 women into joining the cult, which also reportedly included Battlestar Galactica actress Nicki Clyne.
Sci-fi star Clyne is believed to be one of those who handed over damaging material as “collateral” in a bid to prove her loyalty to DOS — which stands for “dominus obsequious sororium” — Latin for “master over the slave women”
