Chelsea Clinton failed miserably in another attempt to get the best of President Trump. Clinton lit into the President on the subject of Civil Asset Forfeiture.
In case you don’t know, Civil Asset Forfeiture gives the government the right to seize the assets of people who were merely suspected of a crime, not convicted. According to the libertarian Institute for Justice, the total dollar value of assets seized by law enforcement through civil asset forfeiture exceeds losses from burglaries.
On the subject of Civil Asset Forfeiture, Chelsea tweeted:

Wow! President Clinton signed the Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 2000 into law.
Who knew? Obviously, not Chelsea.
The Political Insider reports:
Chelsea Clinton attempted to smear Donald Trump yesterday – unaware that she was attacking the policies of her own father in the process. It all began with the Department of Justice releasing new guidelines on civil asset forfeiture, greatly expanding the government’s ability to seize assets from private citizens.
