(FOX NEWS) – Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Saturday that a Manhattan grand jury’s decision to indict former President Donald Trump during his third bid for the White House is “very political” and “not a matter of justice.”

Bush, who challenged Trump for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016, noted in a tweet that Trump was indicted on case that other prosecutors refused to move forward with before Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office revived it recently.

“Bragg’s predecessor didn’t take up the case. The Justice Department didn’t take up the case. Bragg first said he would not take up the case. This is very political, not a matter of justice,” Bush, the second son of former President George H.W. Bush wrote in a tweet.

“In this case, let the jury be the voters,” he added.
