Congress says it will issue a subpoena to Commanders owner Daniel Snyder

Jun 22, 2022

Washington Commanders owner Daniel Snyder might not be able to dodge Congress much longer.

After Snyder twice declined to appear before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform investigating him and the Washington Commanders, Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-N.Y.) said in a hearing Wednesday she plans to issue Snyder a subpoena that would compel him to testify.

Mr. Snyder has not been held accountable. His refusal not to testify sends a clear message that he is more concerned about protecting himself than coming clean with the American people. If the NFL is unwilling or unwilling to hold Mr. Snyder accountable, then I am prepared to do so," chairwoman Malone said. That is why I am an announcing now my intent to issue a subpoena for the testimony of Mr. Snyder for a deposition next week. The committee will not be deterred in its investigation to uncover the truth of workplace misconduct at the Washington Commanders."

This announcement came during a hearing in which NFL commissioner Roger Goodell virtually testified about the league's internal investigation into workplace misconduct within the Commanders. Though the hearing was about that investigation, the proceedings got heated at times when some members of the committee questioned the purpose of the hearing and attacked President Joe Biden's administration.
