NEW YORK—A former high-ranking NXIVM member confirmed the group had taken part in an illegal campaign contribution scheme to benefit the Clintons during testimony on May 13.

Born in South Africa and with a background in filmmaking, former member Mark Vicente, who later served on the group’s executive board, continued to divulge the inner workings of the umbrella organization, telling the court that the purported self-help organization led by Keith Raniere wanted to “curry favor with the Clintons.”

Vicente said the scheme was a “quiet, fraudulent attempt to make a campaign contribution to the Clintons, I think for the presidential race.” He added that the group had always had a “strong desire” to meet with those in politics.
