Congressional Leaders Ask N.F.L. for Documents From Washington Team Inquiry

Two members of Congress have asked the N.F.L. for documents related to the league’s investigation of widespread harassment and misconduct within the Washington Football Team, raising the possibility that more of the 650,000 emails captured in that inquiry may be disclosed.

Representative Carolyn B. Maloney of New York, the chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, and Representative Raja Krishnamoorthi of Illinois, the chairman of the Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy, sent a nine-page letter to Commissioner Roger Goodell on Thursday, asking for information about the “hostile workplace culture” at the team and the league’s handling of the matter.
