“They were clearly colluding because they were intimidated by the president. The only reason — and the owners will admit this — that they haven’t signed him is because of Trump, and they’ve colluded because of Trump.”
Former San Francisco 49ers players Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid are aiming to prove NFL owners colluded to keep them out of the league due to the players’ decision to kneel during the national anthem prior to games in protest of racial inequality and police brutality.
To prove collusion, Geragos’ team will seek to show that Trump improperly impacted NFL owners’ decisions regarding Kaepernick, and that owners then advised one another not to sign the quarterback, SBNation reports.
During Geragos’ conversation with Amy Dash, the lawyer implied that action could be taken against Trump for violation of a statute that explicitly forbids influencing the NFL’s decision regarding Kaepernick.
“There’s a specific code section that says if you — for a political, partisan reason — take an action to affect somebody’s employment in the private sector that that is, not only a criminal offense, but actionable, as well.
“Under the plain language of the statute, clearly, both Trump and Mike Pence have violated it. Not only are they covered persons under the statute, but there is irrefutable evidence … that it was done for partisan, political purposes. ‘Fire that son of a bitch’ was at a campaign rally.”
The NFL has proved by their own actions that they do not care about the fans anymore, that they are driven by greed and political agenda’s. The NFL has allowed players and teams to blatantly cheat and allows criminals to earn millions. Now they are aiding the Democrats to use a new avenue to attempt to impeach President Trump.
Simply boycotting the NFL is not enough at this point, “We The People” need to unite and send a direct message to the NFL that we will not tolerate their criminal behavior nor will we tolerate their hate and anti-America agenda’s.
