Trump: “No Reason” to look into civil asset forfeiture.

President Donald Trump said on Tuesday there was “no reason” to curb law enforcement agencies that seize cash, vehicles and other assets of people suspected of crimes, a practice that some lawmakers and activists have criticized for denying legal rights.

The issue of civil asset forfeiture, created to disrupt the activities of organized crime groups, arose when sheriffs from around the United States told Trump at a White House meeting that they were under pressure to ease the practice.

Note the key word there.  Suspected.  Not convicted.  Not sentenced.  Suspected.

So if, for example, Donald was suspected of…  Oh…  I don’t know…  Tax evasion, they could theoretically take his Tower.  Because, as you know, suspicion = guilt, right Donald?
