HOW TO MAKE MILLIONS IN TEXAS WITHOUT HAVING TO DRILL FOR OIL : PRESCOTT BUSH JN
NO TO WAR - AUSTRALIA

George W.'s uncle, PRESCOTT S. BUSH JR. a former vestryman at a Greenwich, Connecticut Church, apparently inherited his father's predilection for acquiring unusual sources of income.

Prescott specialized in Pacific Rim business development. He worked on an $18-million project to build the Shanghai Country Club, a resort complex with tennis courts and golf course. His partners in the enterprise were a Chinese government organization and Aoki Corporation, a Japanese construction company

For his role in planning the undertaking, Bush was to receive 25% of the profits with no initial outlay, zero risk and an absence of operating costs.

(Hmmmmmm, isn't this suspicious? Have YOU ever been offered a deal like this?)

Prescott played the middleman in a $5-million deal in which 40% of a company in which he held considerable stock and was a senior adviser was sold to West Tsusho, a Tokyo based investment firm, which gave Bush a quarter million dollars for arranging the deal. In some countries, this payment would have been considered a kickback.

Later, Japanese police identified West Tsusho as a Yakuza dominated company. Yakuza is a Japanese Crime syndicate, something like our mafia. Ties were also disclosed between Aoki Corporation, Bush's country-club partners, and this same Japanese crime syndicate.

Although Prescott Bush represented himself as an expert on Asian business affairs, he responded to the Yakuza scandal as if he didn't know that Japan had a Mafia. Bush maintained that he was totally unaware that his Mafia deals were originating from some of the world's most ruthless, virulent mobsters.

A logical question arises: Why didn't he look a little closer? One logical answer could be that: "Dirty money looks pretty good from a distance." and "It doesn't hurt that my brother is the President of the United States," said Prescott S. Bush.

Defense Lawyer Charged With Destroying Evidence
Charges Stem From FBI Investigation Of Church Official In Child Porn Case

February 17, 2007
By EDMUND H. MAHONY, Courant Staff Writer

A Greenwich defense lawyer with a high-profile client list was charged with two obstruction of justice offenses Friday by federal prosecutors who say he destroyed a computer belonging to a church music director accused of collecting pornographic images of children.

Philip Russell, 48, of Stamford was charged in a federal indictment with obstructing justice and destroying evidence. He pleaded not guilty in U.S. District Court in New Haven and was released on $100,000 bond.

"My client maintains his innocence to the charges and he plans to continue to practice law," said Russell's lawyer, Thomas Williams. "Mr. Russell is optimistic that if the case is not dismissed, a jury will find his conduct to have been lawful."

Nothing made public about the allegations against Russell asserts that he knew the computer he is accused of destroying was evidence in an active investigation. U.S. Attorney Kevin J. O'Connor said certain knowledge of a federal investigation is not required in obstruction cases under sweeping federal criminal laws originally enacted to combat Wall Street accounting crimes.

"It is now not required that we show that the person actually had knowledge of the investigation," O'Connor said. "You only have to show that an investigation was foreseeable."

Nonetheless, O'Connor hinted that Russell was aware in some fashion that the computer was potential evidence in a criminal case.

"I don't think we have to get into detail in the indictment as to what he knew when," O'Connor said. "I think the underlying assumption is that he was aware of it, which I think frankly is why he was retained."

Russell was charged as the result of events that transpired over four days in early October, according to the indictment.

On Oct. 6, the indictment says, the FBI began a child pornography investigation of Robert F. Tate, who had been music director for 34 years at Christ Church in Greenwich. According to the indictment, Tate lived in an apartment owned by the church.

The next day, the indictment says, a church employee inadvertently discovered pornographic images on Tate's laptop computer. The church retained Russell on Oct. 8 to advise it on firing Tate and, on the same day, seized and secured the computer.

On Oct. 9, the indictment says, Russell and church officials confronted Tate, who resigned. Russell and the church officials permitted Tate to pack a bag and arranged for him to leave Connecticut for California. At the time, the indictment says, Tate removed and later discarded his child pornography. Finally, on the same day, the indictment says, Russell took possession of Tate's computer and "altered, destroyed, mutilated and concealed it by taking it apart."

Tate, 64, of Greenwich, who has pleaded guilty to pornography charges, admitted possessing between 150 and 300 sexually explicit images of children. He faces up to 10 years in prison. His sentencing is scheduled for April 12.

O'Connor said that if Russell is convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 on each count. Russell is scheduled to go to trial April 17, he said.

Russell's recent clients included Andrew Kissel, a wealthy Greenwich developer found slain in his home last year. Kissel was the brother of an investment banker killed in Hong Kong in what became known as the "milkshake murder" because his wife fed him a poisoned milkshake and then bludgeoned him to death.

Russell also represented Wendell Woodroffe, a former store clerk charged last year with spiking bottled grape juice at a CVS store that sickened more than 40 churchgoers in Darien.

An Associated Press report was included in this story.
