Rand Paul Joins Trump in Condemning Sessions

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) tweeted out Thursday morning criticizing Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to revive the federal civil asset forfeiture program, calling it “unconstitutional.”

Sessions announced Wednesday that the Department of Justice will allow federal officials to seize property that they believe to be connected to illegal activity, even if the people haven’t yet been charged with a crime.

The department defended the action, labeling it as a necessary tool to fight crime, but civil rights advocates say that the law can be easily abused.

Paul has long advocated against civil asset forfeiture.
