Daniel Snyder Answers Congress’s Questions About Commanders Harassment Claims

The Washington Commanders owner Daniel Snyder testified Thursday morning in front of a congressional committee that has been investigating widespread allegations of workplace misconduct at his team, including claims from former staff members that directly accused him of inappropriate behavior.

Snyder gave a voluntary deposition under oath via videoconference from Israel, where, his lawyer said, he was observing the first anniversary of his mother’s death. The testimony before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform ended weeks of back-and-forth over the terms of his appearance, which culminated in an agreement announced early Thursday morning that Snyder would answer questions under oath.
