As superseding indictment looms, Raniere’s attorneys want to see new search warrants of Raniere and Bronfman email accounts – and Salzman devices
December 9, 2018
Is there going to be a superseding indictment?
There are indicators to suggest one may be forthcoming.
For instance, the Government does not want to reveal to the Defense everything contained in the latest trio of search warrants and affidavits used to obtain them.
The Government claims the sealing of portions of the warrants is due to their ongoing investigation. The fact of an ongoing investigation is evidence that a superseding indictment is on the horizon.
It may also yield hints as to what – if any – new charges the Feds may be contemplating bringing against the present NXIVM defendants and perhaps others.
The recent addition to the prosecution team of Assistant US Attorney Kevin Trowel – whose work has been in the Public Integrity Section of the US Attorney’s Office – is further evidence that a superseding indictment is coming and that there may be new defendants.

A link to more ‘what ifs?’
I need something more solid.

Going on over a year now, still no chafing.
This surety is called the confirmation bias, whereby we seek and find confirmatory evidence in support of already existing beliefs and ignore or reinterpret disconfirmatory evidence. Now a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study shows where in the brain the confirmation bias arises and how it is unconscious and driven by emotions. Psychologist Drew Westen led the study, conducted at Emory University, and the team presented the results at the 2006 annual conference of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology.
During the run-up to the 2004 presidential election, while undergoing an fMRI bran scan, 30 men--half self-described as "strong" Republicans and half as "strong" Democrats--were tasked with assessing statements by both George W. Bush and John Kerry in which the candidates clearly contradicted themselves. Not surprisingly, in their assessments Republican subjects were as critical of Kerry as Democratic subjects were of Bush, yet both let their own candidate off the hook.
The neuroimaging results, however, revealed that the part of the brain most associated with reasoning--the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex--was quiescent. Most active were the orbital frontal cortex, which is involved in the processing of emotions; the anterior cingulate, which is associated with conflict resolution; the posterior cingulate, which is concerned with making judgments about moral accountability; and--once subjects had arrived at a conclusion that made them emotionally comfortable--the ventral striatum, which is related to reward and pleasure.
"We did not see any increased activation of the parts of the brain normally engaged during reasoning," Westen is quoted as saying in an Emory University press release. "What we saw instead was a network of emotion circuits lighting up, including circuits hypothesized to be involved in regulating emotion, and circuits known to be involved in resolving conflicts." Interestingly, neural circuits engaged in rewarding selective behaviors were activated. "Essentially, it appears as if partisans twirl the cognitive kaleidoscope until they get the conclusions they want, and then they get massively reinforced for it, with the elimination of negative emotional states and activation of positive ones," Westen said. www.scientificamerican.com...

LOL. Not a single one. Anyone who thinks Q made predictions is either misunderstanding 'the plan' or simply delusional. Plans will always change, adapt, compromise keep pushing forward to the goal is attained.
Q is part of one massive (global scale) psyop filled with disinfo/misinfo twist and turns every step of the way. Nobody understands any of the posts, just pieces here and there but no answer key. One big show that some of us are just trying to keep up with and take great interest on trying to just follow along with the occasional 'predictions' on what may occur. I don't bow to DJT or Q or anyone for that matter.

Q's accuracy obviously concerns you more than it concerns us. You should relax and not Focus so much on Q being right or wrong.
These ATS browser pop-ups on mobile are torture. I had to close the whole window and start the above message over again and speak really fast just to post it before the next pop-up occurred.
