Bush Cabinet Member Calls Trump, Clinton ‘Flawed Candidates’

A former attorney general who served in a Republican administration revealed Wednesday that he might not vote for the party’s presidential nominee this year.

“I’m a lifelong Republican; I believe in the values of the Republican Party. But there are some things about this candidate that trouble me,” Alberto Gonzales said on “Morning Joe” on MSNBC.

President George W. Bush’s attorney general called Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton “flawed candidates.” He explained: “When I look at the qualifications of someone in the Oval Office, integrity is one of the most important. I have some serious issues with the integrity of the Democratic nominee. I’m still wrestling with this. We’ve got some debates that are coming up and I think I want to see them standing side-by-side answering questions. We’ll see whether or not all of us become a little bit more informed.”

Regarding Clinton’s use of a private email server at her New York home while she was President Obama’s first secretary of state, Gonzales said: “The explanations are troubling. I think there’s more to learn about what happened here. and so I think we just need to wait and see. You know, this rush to pick a side, I think this is a very important decision here.”

Gonzales remarked that he is “somewhat concerned about (Trump’s) temperament and judgment,” adding: “I kind of worry about his reaction to criticism. You know, if you’re president of the United States, you’re going to make mistakes. It’s the nature of the job. Whether you make a mistake or not, you’re going to be criticized. You have to be able to accept that.”
