In his divorce proceedings Neil Bush testified that on at least three occasions when he was staying in hotels in Asia, a woman came into his room and had sex with him. He also revealed that he was paid $60,000 a year at Crest for providing "miscellaneous consulting services ... such as answering phone calls when Jamal Daniel, the other co-chairman, called and asked for advice."[2]

Heidner refers to Neil Bush as a "key member" of "Diligence and its sister company New Bridge... demonstrat[ing] the Western political and financial muscle working with the Yeltsin family".[3] Russian oligarch, Boris Berezovsky, was a major investor in one of Neil Bush's ventures, Ignite!.[2]
