Kaepernick expected to subpoena Trump in collusion case

Colin Kaepernick's Legal Team To Subpoena President Trump

Just over half of American voters support the new National Football League policy requiring players to stand for the anthem while 42-percent do not.

It has been months since Colin Kaepernick decided he was going to go at the NFL and their owners by accusing them of colluding to keep him out of the league because of his National Anthem stance.

Meanwhile, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said during his own deposition in this case that Trump had told him to "Tell everybody [in the NFL] 'you can't win this one'". The policy permits teams to choose to stay in the locker room during the national anthem, but calls for fines and punishment for any mode of disrespect.

"If the athletes have friends of theirs or people they know about that have been unfairly treated by the system, let me know."
According to Robinson, Kaepernick's lawyers hope to "draw a direct line" between Trump's attacks on protesting NFL players and the league's punitive treatment of those players.

"I am going to ask all of those people to recommend to me - because that's what they're protesting - people that they think were unfairly treated by the justice system", Trump told reporters at the White House Friday before departing for an economic summit in Canada. The attorneys would then have to present their argument to the collusion arbitrator overseeing the grievance, explaining why testimony from Trump, Pence or others in the administration is important to the collusion case.

Jenkins also released a statement which noted several initiatives Eagles players have taken to better their communities and also accused the White House of lying about the Eagles' perceived patriotism.

I don't understand why those who are offended by players respectfully taking a knee during the national anthem are not equally offended by stadiums full of fans screaming out "O", "Red", "Night" or "Braves" at games.

After heaping praise on "intelligent athletes" like Philadelphia Eagles players Malcolm Jenkins and Chris Long, as well as free agent Colin Kaepernick, for giving money to good causes, Dyson slammed "narrow-minded" Trump for speaking out against the anthem protests.

Trump also said he is considering posthumously pardoning boxer Muhammad Ali and evaluating thousands of additional pardon applications as part of an effort to address injustices in the criminal justice system.

Trump's comments are also the latest in a string of pardons he's granted, from Alice Johnson, a 63-year-old grandmother, to Dinesh D'Souza, a conservative commentator and author.

"In one way, it's easier and people find it fascinating", Trump said of pardoning celebrities.
