Kaepernick's Lawyers Look to Subpoena Trump, Pence in NFL Fight

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 Report: Kaepernick's Lawyers Look to Subpoena Trump, Pence in NFL Fight

Kaepernick's lawyers have already made informal attempts to coordinate and schedule depositions with Trump, Vice President Pence and other administration officials, according to a person with knowledge of the talks who requested anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the discussions.

Kaepernick became the first player to sit and later kneel during the anthem as a way of protesting police brutality and racial injustice.

The website said lawyers for Kaepernick, who is a free agent, want the two to testify in his grievance alleging NFL team owners colluded to keep him out of the league.

It appears Kaepernick lawyers may feel the same way, as they are reportedly expected to try to subpoena Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and "other officials familiar with the president's agenda on protesting National Football League players", sources told Yahoo Sports.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Trump told Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones that him criticizing the anthem is a "strong issue" for him. "Tell everybody, you can't win this one".

"They disagree with their president because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country", Trump said in a statement.

That is, except for Republicans, who think Trump is doing just fine when it comes to race.

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross also said that the president changed his view of the protests after he came out in strong opposition. 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.

However, no Eagles players kneeled during the anthem last season, a fact former Eagles wide receiver Torrey Smith pointed out on Twitter, calling Trump's decision to cancel the Eagles' visit "a cowardly act". This one lifts me'.
