Jeb Bush calls indictment against Rick Perry 'ridiculous'
Jeb Bush says the indictment against Gov. Rick Perry of Texas seems "politically motivated and ridiculous."
Bush wrote that in a tweet on Saturday afternoon as Perry was dealing with the allegations he used his power to pressure a district attorney to resign.
"The indictment of @GovernorPerry seems politically motivated and ridiculous," Bush wrote. "Major overreach and an encroachment on his veto authority."
Perry, who, like Bush, could run for president, tweeted back: "@JebBush Thank you for your support."
