Former Florida Gov. “Jeb” Bush, grandson of the late U.S. Sen. Prescott Bush, whose assets were seized in 1942 for business dealings with the Nazis under the Trading with the Enemy Act, announced Tuesday that he would “actively explore” a campaign for the 2016 Republican Presidential nomination.
His grandfather, U.S. Sen. Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany, the London Guardian has reported. The Guardian obtained confirmation files discovered in the U.S. National Archives in 2004 that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism. His business dealings, which continued until his company’s assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, led to legal action by the family of a slave laborer from Auschwitz.
The evidence has also prompted one former US Nazi war crimes prosecutor to argue that Prescott Bush’s action should have been grounds for prosecution, for giving aid and comfort to the enemy.
The case was reviewed by Ben Aris and Duncan Campbell of The Guardian Washington Bureau, in an article titled, “How Bush’s [George W. and Jeb’s] grandfather helped Hitler’s Rise to Power,” on Sept. 25, 2004.
Jeb Bush is also a founding member of the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) established in 1997, with war hawks including Dick Cheney, who has defended torture for which the Japanese were convicted of war crimes after World War II.
