The President of the United States smirked and said he would "destroy the career" of a state senator. Everyone laughed. Is this America? https://t.co/BWiIOdQrEz— Peter Daou (@peterdaou) February 7, 2017
That lawmaker wants to reform the law regarding civil forfeiture where the government takes money and property even if there is no criminal conviction. (Even that goofy Texas Supreme Court justice has strongly suggested that it's time for reform.)
The Sheriff might be referring to State Senator Konni Burton who is very conservative, very pro-Ted Cruz, and very anti-Trump.
Edit: As of 10:00 p.m., the Sheriff is such a coward that he still won't tell us who he was referring to.
