NEW YORK — Files containing information on Albany County District Attorney David Soares, former state Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno and former Gov. Eliot Spitzer were kept in a box in the basement of NXVIM president Nancy Salzman’s home, an investigator testified Thursday at the federal trial of Keith Raniere.
The files bearing those prominent names — as well as dossiers on notorious political consultant Roger Stone, U.S. Sen. Charles E. Schumer and Times Union Publisher George Hearst, among others — were discovered during a March 2018 raid on Salzman’s home at 3 Oregon Trail in Halfmoon, according to State Police Investigator Charles Fontinelli, who worked on an FBI task force probing NXIVM.
