According to Yahoo Sports News, this awesomeness is happening:

After months of circling President Donald Trump during NFL depositions and discovery, Colin Kaepernick’s lawyers are expected to force Trump directly into the ongoing legal battle between the quarterback and league.

Kaepernick’s legal team is expected to seek federal subpoenas in the coming weeks to compel testimony from Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and other officials familiar with the president’s agenda on protesting NFL players, sources with knowledge of the quarterback’s collusion case against the NFL told Yahoo Sports.

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.

There will be extra steps that Kaepernick and his lawyers have to go through because this is a collective bargaining case, but wow…this may be the first attempt at testing that “can a sitting president be subpoenaed” question.

  1. So people who give the flag the finger in private are protected. But not those who bend their knee in cause….maybe they should just shout out their concern..maybe THAT will be protected by the first amendment. Trump is such a frickin’ ass.
