From the special American Free Press insert, pages A1-A3, Volume VIII, Number 36, September 8, 2008:
TARGET: TRAFICANT The outrageous never-before-told inside story of how the
Justice Department, the Israeli lobby and the mass media
conspired to set up and take down Ohio’s outspoken
Congressman Jim Traficant . . .
. . . From the pen of AFP correspondent Michael Collins Piper — the only journalist
Jim Traficant agreed to speak to from prison after being convicted on trumped-up
corruption charges. Traficant wouldn’t even speak to The New York Times!
If you ever had any doubt whether Jim Traficant was guilty of the charges on which he was convicted, they’ll be erased after you’ve read this amazing volume. The media was lying to you all along.
Here are the facts . . .
THE MASS MEDIA IN AMERICA played a considerable role in the illicit set-up and take-down of Congressman Jim Traficant by corrupt elements inside the Justice Department and the FBI. Time and again the media LIED to the people of Traficant’s congressional district and to all of the American people when they reported on the Traficant case. Only American Free Press told you the truth about the WHY and HOW of the Traficant case and why “THEY” were out to get him, determined to silence this courageous U.S. congressman. TARGET: TRAFICANT examines the campaign to “get” Traficant and exposes it for the outrageous fraud that it was. You’ll be astounded to see the lengths to which crooked prosecutors went to destroy Jim Traficant — a story you need to know about!
Here’s the Evidence Proving Beyond Any Doubt ‘They’ Railroaded Jim Traficant:
Jim Traficant refuses to accept a presidential pardon (or a reduction in his
federal prison term) for this very simple reason: he will not agree to admit
to — and apologize for — crimes he did not commit . . .
In TARGET: TRAFICANT, veteran author Michael Collins Piper—whom Jim Traficant has said was the only journalist to tell his story truthfully and correctly from the beginning—has assembled this eye-opening and disturbing overview of the campaign by high-level forces to set up and take down the no-nonsense populist congressman.
If you have ever had any doubts about Traficant’s integrity—doubts instilled by a long-standing media cacophony attacking Traficant—you’ll soon realize that the Traficant case represents one of the most outrageous and thoroughly illegal hit-and-run operations ever orchestrated in our “democracy.” It is perhaps all too representative of the high-level corruption for which the “Justice” Department has been found responsible time and time again.
Piper dissects the intrigues of the Justice Department and the FBI (as well as the maneuvers by the federal judge who oversaw the Traficant trial) and demonstrates, beyond any doubt, that Jim Traficant was absolutely innocent of all of the charges on which he was convicted . . .
TARGET: TRAFICANT features a special appendix outlining the whole shocking story of the Budd Dwyer affair!
Twenty years ago, Michael Collins Piper was the only journalist on the entire planet to expose the outrageous Justice Department and FBI frame-up of Pennsylvania State Treasurer Budd Dwyer . . .
On January 21, 1987, following his conviction on trumped-up corruption charges and facing a lengthy prison term, Dwyer continued to protest his innocence; and—at a crowded press conference broadcast on live television — Dwyer shot himself. Moments before he died, Dwyer begged for the press to tell his story, but his plea was ignored by the major media. Independent journalist Michael Collins Piper was the only one to take up Dwyer’s challenge . . .Now — in TARGET: TRAFICANT — Piper has turned his attention to the equally outrageous (and successful) campaign by the Justice Department and the FBI to destroy Jim Traficant.
