Kaepernick's Lawyers Expected to Subpoena Trump in NFL Collusion Case — CBS Sports

  • President Donald Trump on field during the national anthem prior to the CFP National Championship presented by AT&T between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Alabama Crimson Tide at Mercedes Benz Stadium

The report states that the aim of the subpoenas is to determine the extent of the administration's involvement with the National Football League in regards to Kaepernick's continued status as a free agent.

Sources familiar with the the collusion case, which is being fought behind closed doors, told Yahoo Sports that Kaepernick's lawyers will seek the subpoena in the next few weeks.

"I think we'll have the Caps, we'll see", Trump said, referring to the Washington Capitals, which clinched the Stanley Cup Thursday night.

'Wouldn't you love to see one of these [NFL team] owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, "Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out!" "This one lifts me". Allegations that he was blackballed from the league for his high-profile and highly controversial on-field protests against police brutality, which saw him kneeling during the USA national anthem, have roiled ever since.

Trump's comments come four days after the White House disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles from a Super Bowl celebration.

Of those, Putnam's office conducted a further review on 365 applicants and then revoked 291 of their concealed carry permits. She then claimed that when she was entrusted with the database in 2013, she was only a mailroom employee.

As our own Jake Weindling has thoroughly documented, the NFL had absolutely no good skill-based reason to keep Colin Kaepernick out of the league. The policy makes it a team-by-team decision as to whether a player would be disciplined for protesting during the anthem.

"They're not proud enough to stand for our national anthem, I don't like that", Trump said to reporters outside the White House on Friday, criticizing the protests as "talk, talk, talk".

The president also previously has said players who kneel during the anthem should be fired. "These are real actions of intelligent athletes who have consciences who do what we always say we want athletes do - don't just make a bunch of money, don't go out there and hot dog it - be about something serious". The vast majority of cases of racial inequality that have drawn protests have been at the state level regarding local police officers' treatment of minorities.

The deposition list is part of a grievance case filed by Kaepernick against the NFL which claims that the NFL blacklisted him after he spearheaded the National Anthem protests that have sparked controversy around the nation. Kaepernick has not been signed by a team since opting out of his contract with the 49ers following the 2016 season.
