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

In what he sees as a possible solution to the problem of NFL players kneeling in protest during the national anthem, Donald Trump says he will meet with protesting players and ask them to recommend someone whom they feel has been unfairly treated by the justice system.

Trump also said he is also considering pardons for some 3,000 relatively unknown people.

Meanwhile, away from the White House, Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt continued to make headlines for a growing list of scandals. "If the arbitrator grants the request, the lawyers will then have to seek the subpoenas in a district court under the Federal Arbitration Act", writes Fox News. If the arbitrator agrees, the subpoenas could be sought.

'The U.S. Supreme Court overturned the conviction of Muhammad Ali in a unanimous decision in 1971. Clinton provided more than four hours of videotaped sworn testimony in the Washington office of his attorney.

That said, it looks like they're going to try, and a amusing wrinkle here is that if Trump is forced to depose, he could make himself legally liable based on his testimony. That would only be step one, as Trump could decline and leave it up to a federal judge to determine if the president can be forced to sit for a deposition. "This one lifts me".

At the start of last season, Trump exhorted NFL owners to fire players who take a knee during the national anthem.

Trump lashed out on Twitter and disinvited the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles from their scheduled visit to the White House over their position on the anthem.

Since 2015, Germany has allowed more than a million migrants and refugees into the country, many from such places as Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.

Pence called the NFL's new anthem rules "a stunning victory for President Trump".

Recently, the National Football League implemented a new policy that teams could choose to require athletes in their arenas to stand during the playing of the anthem.

Trump, speaking Friday in front of reports ahead of the G7 summit, offered somewhat of a deal to the players who continue to protest.

Trump's comments appeared to be the first time he has acknowledged that players are protesting social injustice and police brutality rather than the anthem itself.

By a 58 percent to 35 percent margin, those surveyed in a Quinnipiac University poll voiced disagreement with the notion that players who, during games, protest police shootings of unarmed black men are disrespectful of America. Reid has been unsigned as a free agent this offseason. Now, Kaepernick's lawyers are reportedly seeking to subpoena Trump.

In the grievance filed against the NFL last October, Kaepernick claims that the 32 teams in the NFL have essentially blackballed him from ever playing in the league again.
