Jesus, is everybody issuing a subpoena to this guy?

Courtesy of The Hill:

NFL free agent Colin Kaepernick’s legal team will reportedly seek federal subpoenas for President Trump and Vice President Pence to testify in his grievance alleging NFL owners colluded to keep him out of the league.

Yahoo Sports reported Thursday that lawyers for the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback will look to compel testimony from Trump, Pence, and others who are familiar with the president’s stance against players who protest during the national anthem.

Sources told the site that the subpoenas would likely focus on the Trump administration’s involvement with the NFL since Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the 49ers in 2017.

Yahoo Sports noted reports that Trump had spoken directly with some NFL owners about the protests, with sources telling the outlet that those conversations, and any pressure exerted on the NFL from Trump officials, would shape the subpoenas.

You know Trump may end up spending so much time giving testimony in response to so many lawsuits that he will not have time to do his job. 

And yes, that’s a good thing.

    “Parker holds a deep animus against LGBTQ people, and he believes that his judicial decisions should be driven by his conservative religious beliefs. Parker once compared a federal judge, who ruled against the now-defunct ban on gay members of the military serving openly, to Al-Qaeda. He also wrote a judicial opinion claiming that the Supreme Court’s decision permitting same-sex couples to marry “conclusively demonstrates that the rule of law is dead.”” if judges do not openly defy Obergefell, they will sentence the nation’s children “to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.”

    “There is no law against leaking sensitive government information that is not classified.”

    “In an Oval Office conversation memorialized in one of former FBI Director Jame Comey’s now-famous memos, he and Trump discussed prosecuting a leaker as a “head on a pike,” in Comey’s words, to warn other government officials off of talking to the press.

    Later in that conversation, Comey said Trump went a step further, joking about jailing reporters who publish leaks: “They spend a couple days in jail, make a new friend and they are ready to talk.””<NOT FUNNY.

    race baiting rump “very cleverly tapped into this issue.”>” It’s a national version of what Ed Gillespie tried in the closing days of the Virginia gubernatorial election: running on Hispanic gangs and “ungrateful” football players and hoping to stem a loss by enraging enough white people to blunt Democratic enthusiasm.” “Trump’s habit of ignoring the economic message preferred by House and Senate Republicans in favor of the culture war tropes that propelled him to the White House is increasingly seen as an asset,” reports David Drucker for the Washington Examiner.” ” “Trumpism” has only worked for Trump. voters have suggested that what they want is less of Trump, not more.”

    “Sources told the site that the subpoenas would likely focus on the Trump administration’s involvement with the NFL since Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the 49ers in 2017.”

    Key part of that sentence: “Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the 49ers in 2017”

    Sorry, but Kaepernick and his collusion lawsuit is a joke. You cannot force an owner to hire a player they don’t want. How is this going to work, draw straws and whoever gets the shortest has to give him millions and put him on a roster? He had a couple lucky first seasons and he is a great athlete, but he is a one act one read quarterback that has no ability to read defense or hang back in the pocket, every defense figured that out and basically disabled him completely his last season when he went 1-10 as a starter. His lawyers will be unsuccessful with their subpoena attempt which is more about publicity and hype than reality (reference Stormy Daniels and her ‘all star’ legal teal lol).

    Not a troll. Just a realist.
