House committee accepts Commanders owner Dan Snyder’s offer to testify virtually


Dan Snyder, owner of the Washington Commanders, has accepted an invitation to testify online on July 28 from the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform. Tuesday, Chairwoman Carolyn B. Maloney wrote to attorney Karen Patton Seymour to inform her that Mr. Snyder could testify via Zoom as long as he adhered to the guidelines outlined in the committee’s initial subpoena. This would guarantee that Mr. Snyder’s testimony would be unrestricted and full, unlike if the deposition were conducted voluntarily. The committee has agreed to grant Snyder access to exhibits used in earlier depositions, interview transcripts, and descriptions of information that has been censored, among other things that his counsel had asked in a prior letter. Their ideal date after turning down multiple prior offers was July 28. Snyder has so far turned down invitations to testify before the committee on two different occasions.
