The Franklin Scandal: A story of Powerbrokers, Child Abuse & Betrayal by Nick Bryant is a chilling exposé of corporate corruption and government cover-ups. This in-depth account of a nationwide child-trafficking and pedophilia ring in
the United States tells a sordid tale of corruption in high places. The
scandal originally surfaced during an investigation into Omaha,
Nebraska's failed Franklin Federal Credit Union and took the author
beyond the Midwest and ultimately to Washington, DC. Implicating
businessmen, senators, major media corporations, the CIA, and even the
venerable Boys Town organization, this extensively researched report
includes firsthand interviews with key witnesses and explores a
controversy that has received scant media attention.
The Franklin Scandal is the story of a
nationwide pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich
and powerful. The ring’s pimps were a pair of Republican power-brokers
who used Boys Town as a pedophiliac reservoir, had access to the highest
levels of our government, and connections to the CIA.
Nebraska legislators nearly exposed the ring in 1990, but its
unveiling had the potential to produce seismic political aftershocks, so
a rash of deaths and a full court press by federal and local law
enforcement effected an immaculate cover-up.
State and federal grand juries in Nebraska and a former U.S. Attorney
for the District of Columbia played an integral role in the cover-up,
and the author has had access to thousands of documents that would
ultimately be sealed by the two grand juries. My documentation includes
Omaha Police Department reports and internal memos, Nebraska State
Patrol reports, Nebraska Department of Social Services reports, internal
Boys Town reports, victim debriefings, hundreds of the ring’s airline
The power elite sating their appetite for forbidden fruit via
pedophilia and pedophiliac sadism is an evil that dates back millennia:
Roman emperor Tiberius reportedly indulged in pedophilia and then
murdered his victims. Moreover, pedophile rings linked to the powerful
have recently been exposed in Belgium, Portugal, Chile, and Mexico.
The Franklin Scandal is the first
commercially-published book to tell the tale of a power elite pedophile
ring in the U.S. and also of the cover-up of its heinous crimes. Various
news organizations have attempted to break aspects of this story, but
the reports have either been ignored or mysteriously shelved. Major news
agencies, including ABC, have backed away from pursuing this story;
conversely, CBS abetted its cover-up. It’s obvious that very powerful
people have a vested interest in safeguarding this secret.
