Colin Kaepernick’s lawyers plan to subpoena Donald Trump and Mike Pence as part of the collusion lawsuit he brought against the NFL.
Yahoo Sports reports that Kaepernick’s lawyers will seek to force Trump, Pence and others who are familiar with Trump’s stance against players who take a knee during the national anthem.
“The aim will be a dive into the administration’s political involvement with the NFL during Kaepernick’s free agency and the league’s handling of player protests, sources said. This after recent disclosures that multiple owners had direct talks with Trump about players kneeling during the national anthem.”
“The content of those conversations between Trump and owners – as well as any forms of pressure directed at the league by the administration – are expected to shape the requests to force the testimony of Trump, Pence and other affiliated officials, sources said.”
Donald Trump has been railing against players taking a knee, who he called “sons of bitches,” to protest police brutality and racism. He demands that they stand for the national anthem and respect the flag. He has zero credibility to talk about patriotism. The five-time draft dodger doesn’t even know the words to the Star Spangled Banner and God Bless America.
