House Oversight Committee says Commanders owner Daniel Snyder refusing to accept subpoena


Washington Commanders owner Daniel Snyder is refusing to accept a subpoena from the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, according to a statement from the Committee Monday.

“Mr. Snyder has so far refused to accept service of the Committee’s subpoena,” the statement read via The Washington Post. “While the Committee has been, and remains, willing to consider reasonable accommodations requested by witnesses, we will not tolerate attempts to evade service of a duly authorized subpoena or seek special treatment not afforded to other witnesses who testified in this matter.”

During last week’s Congressional hearing where NFL commissioner Roger Goodell testified, committee chairwoman Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-N.Y.) said she intended to issue a subpoena to testify before Congress. Thus far, Snyder has refused to cooperate.

A spokesperson for Snyder released the following statement:

“Mr. Snyder has not refused to appear for a deposition,” the spokesperson said. “The Committee offered only one date — June 30 — and Mr. Snyder’s attorney is out of the country and unavailable on that date. Mr. Snyder’s lawyer has provided alternative dates to the Committee and looks forward to finding a path forward for Mr. Snyder’s further cooperation and to address remaining due process concerns.”

It’s unclear what the next step is from the Committee or Snyder.
