Congress intervention into NFL, Washington investigation not unheard ofNovember 3, 2021 – Publications / Mentions
Thursday marks the deadline for the NFL to comply with a request from two House Democrats to turn over all documents related to the league’s investigation into the Washington Football Team’s workplace misconduct.
But as of Wednesday afternoon, the league had yet to do so, according to an official from the House Oversight and Reform Committee. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said last week that the league would “be cooperative” with the congressional request. An NFL spokesman did not respond to an email asking if the league planned to turn over the documents.
