Business Insider: Conservatives are trashing Jeff Sessions’ controversial asset-seizure program by David Choi:
Republican lawmakers are up in arms over a new Justice Department directive allowing the federal government to take assets that were lawfully seized by local or state law enforcement officials.
Critics challenged the constitutionality of the program and alleged it encourages law enforcement agencies to seize property from individuals who were merely suspected of criminal activity and not formally charged with a crime, violating due process.
Party like it’s 1977. At least conservatives not trapped in 1977 have come around on the due process issues.
