Former President George W. Bush offered his condolences to the large family and friends of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who was found dead Saturday.
“He was a towering figure and important judge on our Nation’s highest court,” Bush said in a statement on Saturday evening. “He brought intellect, good judgment, and wit to the bench, and he will be missed by his colleagues and our country.”
