On this show we've covered the topic of sex trafficking and violence against children nearly 10 years ago. We also looked into the pizzagate scandal, a joint investigation among citizens, law enforcement and government agencies looking into the related sex trafficking, cyber crime and child abuse. Every year in the United States, 800 thousand children are reported missing and 300 thousand children are at risk of sexual exploitation. The U.S. State Department reports 600 to 800 thousand people are trafficked across international borders every year, 80 percent are female, half of that number are children. Recently, the Boy Scouts of America reported the filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, following multiple sexual child abuse lawsuits.
Dr. Lori Handrahan has been a returning guest since 2012 discussing child pornography within the United States government, education system, the U.S. military and law enforcement. She authored the recently published Epidemic: America's Trade In Child Rape. Past guest author and investigator Nick Bryant has written about the structures and dynamics of child sex trafficking in the books The Franklin Scandal: A Story of Powerbrokers, Child Abuse and Betrayal and Confessions of a D.C. Madam: The Politics of Sex, Lies, and Blackmail.
The Franklin Scandal story revealed how high the corruption and cover-up reached and Confession of a DC Madam did the same plus delivered another angle on the function of blackmail and leverage within the underworld of human sex trafficking. Everyone caught a glimpse of that underworld when details of convicted sex offender Jeffery Epstein's case made headline news.
Our guest Nick Bryant brought that research forward in 2012 but print media lacked courage to run the articles. His articles on the Epstein case were eventually published but in 2015. That same year, he acquired Epstein's black book with names, contact information and flight logs of those flying in Epstein's private aircraft to locations such as Little St James Island.
Now that he has been reported to have committed suicide, what happens to Epstein's case and all the evidence collected? What happens to those who recruited young women for Epstein and his network? Will the United States Department of Justice follow through on Epstein's case?
Guest - Nick Bryant investigated child trafficking for nearly two decades. He's recently drafted a petition with Change.org urging the Department of Justice to pursue the case.
Nick Bryants writing has recurrently focused on the plight of disadvantaged children in the United States, and hes been published in numerous national journals, including the Journal of Professional Ethics, Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology, Journal of Social Distress and Homelessness, Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved, and Journal of School Health.Nick has also co-written Confessions of a D.C. Madame, a firsthand account of how public officials and other well-connected individuals have been compromised or blackmailed by their sexual improprieties.
