Donald Trump called on Sheriff Harold Eavenson of Rockwell County in Texas to “destroy” the career of a state lawmaker in the same state because they are an opponent to civil forfeiture.
Eavenson told Trump: “On asset forfeiture, we’ve got a state senator in Texas that was talking about introducing legislation to require conviction before we could receive that forfeiture money.”
Trump replied that he could not believe a state lawmaker would not support this practice by police which involves seizing money and property of individuals suspected of committing a crime – before they’ve been convicted.
Eavenson added: “And I told him that the cartel would build a monument to him in Mexico if he could get that legislation passed.”
Trump asked for the name of the senator and said: “We’ll destroy his career.”This post was originally published on this site
