Kaepernick's Lawyers Will Try to Subpoena Trump in NFL Collusion Case

Colin Kaepernick began kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality

The report from Yahoo! further illuminates how Kaepernick's lawyers could build the case for a subpoena. The athlete has accused NFL team owners of conspiring with one another to keep the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback from being signed to a team again, ending his football career.

NFL owners approved a new policy at the league meetings earlier this month that requires all players and team personnel on the field to stand during the national anthem.

Some Americans, including Trump, have called Kaepernick's protests an affront to the military and the flag of the United States, although Kaepernick has consistently denied that either was a target of his demonstrations. Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said Trump changed the narrative of the anthem protests a year ago when Trump implored players to stand for the national anthem and for teams to punish players that did not. Statements like these could prove vital in securing a subpoena against the president in the collusion case.

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross testified that Trump's comments 'changed the dialogue, ' adding that New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft had also discussed the anthem with Trump.

Kaepernick was the first professional athlete to "take a knee" during the performance of the national anthem in 2016, citing police violence and racial injustice in America.

In his testimony, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Trump spoke with him about the anthem.

In an October meeting the National Football League convened with players, owners and executives at its New York headquarters, multiple owners discussed the dangers of a public feud with the president, according to audio of the meeting that was secretly recorded and provided to The New York Times.

"It remains to be seen whether the totality of those incidents will be enough to convince the system arbitrator in Kaepernick's case or a federal judge to conclude that forcing depositions of Trump, Pence or others is necessary", according to Yahoo Sports.

As Robinson notes, there will be a lot of hurdles to clear before Trump could actually be forced to testify.
