The new Nxivm superseding indictment is here — and this is what’s new in it

[Keith Raniere]

Nxivm watchers have been anticipating this for some time, and today the new superseding indictment landed and we have a copy. One of the biggest changes from the previous indictment is that Nancy Salzman has been removed as a defendant now that she’s pled guilty.

But there are other changes, namely the addition of charges against Nxivm leader Keith Raniere for sexual exploitation of a child and child pornography.

Here are the new counts, as spelled out in the indictment…
