Kaepernick’s lawyer seems to think President and Vice President violated federal law over anthem issue
At a time when the President has more than a few things to worry about when it comes to pending criminal investigations, at least one person thinks the President and the Vice President may have violated federal law in relation to this attack against the NFL over the anthem issue.
But the law contains a bright line that potentially may have been crossed. The NFL is a private employer. The President and/or the Vice President successfully pressured the NFL to change its anthem policy to remove the right of players of protest during the anthem, which amounts to an employment practice.
At a time when far more complex and convoluted facts are being considered by prosecutors for potential criminal actions by the President and those close to him, maybe there’s silver bullet is hiding in plain sight — one that could knock both the President and the Vice President out of office.
It’s unlikely that the dominoes would fall this way, but the law says what it says. If there’s a prosecutor who is willing to attempt to enforce it, who knows what might happen?
Seferian-Jenkins also did a stint in rehab to work on his own alcohol issues, including his own DUI in 2016 which resulted in a two-game suspension last year. And when he heard about Donahue’s arrest from several people including Jets athletic trainer John Mellody, he offered to help.
It was a natural thing, Seferian-Jenkins told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. I think the world of Dylan and the way he plays the game and the type of character he has. People make mistakes. It happens as you grow up. You can’t cross them off because they made a couple mistakes. I’ve definitely had my fair share of incidents. Everyone has a different story, but we’re all searching for the same thing: Peace and clarity. I think that’s what he’s doing. He’s really attacked it hard.
Their relationship began with text messages and turned to phone calls while Donahue was in a Florida facility, and Donahue said he appreciated the support from a player who had been through similar struggles.
I’m really happy for him, Seferian-Jenkins said. I’m hoping he can turn the page, because life’s too short to dwell on things that you made mistakes on. There’s too many opportunities for a young man — not just as a football player, but as a person — to let that completely affect your life. I’m happy he took the initiative to front it head on. That’s extremely important. Take responsibility. And say, ‘I need to quit this. This is causing a problem not only for myself, but possibly other people.’ That’s a huge sign of his growth and maturity.
