42. I think that providing financing , credit lines, and contracts with Hitler is collaboration
He had his assets seized by a Democratic President because he was assured by a republican congress that he could continue his association with Brown Brothers Harriman (BBH),which acted as a US base for the German industrialist, Fritz Thyssen, who helped finance Hitler in the 1930s. The whole Nazi financial machine that powered Hitlers war efforts was a construct of Prescott Bush and Averill Harriman.

This 9/2004 article in the Guardian lays much of it out.

Prescott Bush was a collaborator because he saw dollar sins, plain and simple. There were no philosophical notions.

But to suggest he was not a collaborator is absolutely , positively FALSE.
