Colin Kaepernick’s lawyers are reportedly preparing to seek federal subpoenas from both President Trump and Vice President Pence, according to a new report Thursday morning.
The former QB’s legal team will attempt examine both Trump and Pence’s “political involvement with the NFL during Kaepernick’s free agency and the league’s handling of player protests,” according to Yahoo Sports.
But it’s not going to be the easiest thing in the world to get the Commander In Chief on this one. (RELATED: Patriots Owner Robert Kraft Deposed In Kaepernick Collusion Case)
“The quarterback’s legal team first must notify the system arbitrator of the need for targeted depositions beyond the boundaries of the agreement between the NFL and the player’s union,” Yahoo continues. “That would entail presenting a detailed argument to the system arbitrator overseeing the grievance, spelling out the relevance and impact that testimony from Trump or others could have on the grievance.”
But this all depends on the arbitrator determining that Trump’s deposition would be worth everybody’s time and money. And the chances of that actually happening seem to be getting slimmer by the day.
