Jeb Bush weighs in on arrested Debbie Wasserman Schultz staffer

Private citizen Jeb Bush uses his Twitter account sparingly, often to promote school choice programs or other education reforms.

The former Florida governor and failed 2016 Republican presidential candidate tweets the occasional link to articles critical of President Donald Trump and in June called it “Inappropriate. Undignified. Unpresidential” when Trump attacked Mika Brzezinski. He also praised retired Gen. John Kelly as “a good man and a tremendous leader” when Trump tapped him to be White House chief of staff.

On Saturday, Bush drew attention to the recent arrest of an information technology staffer who worked for U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston, and several other House Dems — including Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton.

“The incompetence and terrible judgment displayed by Debbie Wasserman Schultz and House Democrats is jarring,” Bush tweeted.

He added a link to a Wall Street Journal column that says the arrest of Imran Awan and investigation of four other IT staffers is “a tale of massive government incompetence that seemingly allowed a family of accused swindlers to bilk federal taxpayers out of millions and even put national secrets at risk. In a more accountable world, House Democrats would be forced to step down.”
