(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) Former President George W. Bush's White House chief of staff has launched an attack on GOP front-runner Donald Trump, claiming the businessman "isn't fit for the office our former boss held with such distinction."
In an email to the the private Bush-Cheney Alumni list, Josh Bolten also said that a Trump nomination would cripple the Republican Party and kill its standing at the party of limited government.
"I don't have to tell you how important this election cycle is to the future of the Republican Party, and to our country.
