D.C. Attorney General plans to take action against Dan Snyder following latest investigation

Estimated read time 2 min read


Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder has been the subject of multiple investigations, including two by the NFL and one ongoing by the U.S. House Oversight Committee on a wide range of misconduct issues, including sexual harassment. Now, Snyder faces another damaging hurdle.

According to The Washington Post, the Attorney General for the District of Columbia is planning to take action against the embattled Commanders owner. The office of Karl A. Racine (D) has conducted an investigation launched in April stemming from several issues, including financial improprieties allegations that emerged in a detailed letter from the House Oversight Committee to the Federal Trade Commission earlier this year.

Racine’s office is “moving full steam ahead,” and the NFL “will soon face accountability for their actions.”

“Snyder will no longer be able to dodge subpoenas or avoid testifying or answering questions,” an anonymous source told the Post.

Among the wide range of issues, the team was accused of withholding shared ticket revenue from the NFL.

Meanwhile, the NFL has investigated Snyder and the Commanders twice since July 2020. The league’s first investigation looked into the team’s toxic workplace culture following countless allegations of sexual misconduct. That investigation resulted in a $10M fine for the team, several resignations within the organization, and Snyder stepping away from the team’s day-to-day operations. Meanwhile, his wife and team co-CEO Tanya Snyder assumed the role of Dan Snyder.

The Committee launched an investigation into Snyder and the team earlier this year following the league’s handling of its first investigation. During Congress’s investigation, new allegations emerged of sexual harassment against Snyder from two former team employees.

Those new allegations prompted a second investigation by the NFL, which is ongoing and led by famed attorney Mary Jo White.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell testified to Congress. Then in July, Snyder testified after months of avoiding a subpoena.

Multiple reports have indicated that NFL team owners have become tiresome of Snyder and prefer him ousted from the league. However, a recent ESPN report indicated that Snyder claims to have enough “dirt” on Goodell, league executives, and multiple team owners, including Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to “blow up” the NFL.
