Washington Commander owner Daniel Snyder reportedly conducted a “shadow investigation,” attempting to discredit accusers.
The House Oversight and Reform Committee released findings showing that Snyder built a “dossier” on those who came forward alleging workplace misconduct as part of the “shadow investigation.”
Snyder didn’t attend Wednesday’s congressional hearing, but he has been subpoenaed to appear before the committee next week.
Commissioner Roger Goodell attended virtually and made a statement that includes, “the workplace in Washington was unprofessional and unacceptable in numerous respects: bullying, widespread disrespect toward colleagues, use of demeaning language, public embarrassment, and harassment.”
The NFL has fined Snyder and the Commanders $10 million and Goodell has stated that “to the best of my knowledge,” Snyder is no longer involved in the day-to-day operations of the franchise. NFL owners have reportedly been counting votes on removing Snyder. It’s possible that Wednesday’s Congressional hearing or Snyder’s upcoming testimony changes the math.
