Marrs, J. (2000). Rule by secrecy: The hidden history that connects the trilateral commission, the freemasons, and the great pyramids. New York,
"Nepotism runs deep in The Order as seen in the fact that modern finances of the Russell Trust were handled by John B. Madden Jr., a partner in Brown
Brothers Harriman, formed by the merger of Brown Bros. & Company and W.A. Harriman & Company in 1933. Madden started there in the 1940's working
under Senior Partner Prescott Bush, father of former president George Bush, all of them members of Skull and Bones." (p. 92-3).
Marrs (2000) reports that, "a more recent example of members' fierce loyalty was shown in the 1980's scandal of President Bush's connection with
the criminal activity in the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI). As the bank's illegal activities came to light--involving many
prominent names--attempts were made by the Bush administration to block or blunt any meaningful investigation. Finally a formal investigation of the
BCCI was launched by the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Terrorism, Narcotics, and International Operations headed by Massachusetts senator
John Kerry" (p. 93).
"Kerry was chairman of the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee, which had received significant BCCI contributions, and he was also a member of Skull
and Bones. The Kerry-led investigation foundered. Jack Blum, a special counsel to Kerry's subcommittee, stated, 'I proposed a serious
investigation of BCCI and was brushed aside....A high-level cover-up of everything concerning BCCI was set into place after Customs stumbled across
their money-laundering operation in Miami, and it's still in place" (p. 93).
