Sessions acknowledged criticism of the policy on Wednesday, saying that as the DOJ encourages civil forfeiture whenever appropriate, "we must protect the rights of law abiding people whose property is used without their consent."

He noted that the federal government will not adopt seized property unless the state involved provides information demonstrating that the seizure was justified form the beginning with probable cause.

Sessions added that there will be enhanced training on asset forfeiture laws, noting that the depart will adopt smaller seizures of cash only if there exists some level of criminality.

President Donald Trump himself was in favor of asset forfeiture, discussing the topic with sheriff's around the country back in February.
