Even though former Washington Commander’s owner Daniel Snyder sold the team not long ago, it doesn’t mean all his troubles have gone away.

Democratic Congressman Jamie Raskin wants Snyder to be prosecuted for lying to Congress. Raskin wants Snyder to be investigated for potentially lying to Congress during his July 2022 deposition testimony.

Snyder had denied claims by Commanders employee Tiffani Johnston who said Snyder touched her without her consent when testified under oath.

Now Raskin wants the former Commanders owner to pay.

“Mr. Snyder’s statements under oath to this Committee, claiming Ms. Johnston’s allegations ‘didn’t happen’ and were ‘not true,’ as well as his assertion that ‘the whole claim is not true’ are inconsistent with the findings of Ms. White’s investigation,” Raskin wrote in an eight-page letter to Representative James Comer (R-Ky.), the chair of the Committee. “Mr. Snyder’s testimony to the Committee suggests a deliberate effort to provide false testimony in an effort to obstruct a Congressional investigation. These false statements are particularly troubling given that they appear to be part of a pattern of obstruction and misrepresentation that included Mr. Snyder’s efforts to smear Mr. [Jason] Friedman and his characterization of Ms. Johnston’s account as ‘outright lies,’ as well as his efforts to interfere with a prior investigation conducted by Beth Wilkinson.”

Snyder’s conduct while with the team forced him out, but he didn’t look for Raskin to get his wish regarding the prosecution of Snyder unless the Democrats take over the House again.
