Attorney Tom Davis Denies Allegations Against Client Dan Snyder In Letter Sent To Congressional Committee
Dan Snyder’s attorney Tom Davis, who led the congressional committee for four years, reportedly wrote a nine-page letter to the committee regarding its investigation into his client. Davis claims that the Committee has not once requested to interview any of the current Commanders staff, and that it is not being “fair, thorough, or bipartisan” to the Commanders Owner. Davis has denied the allegations against his client when speaking to media, and believes strongly that the committee will not succeed in their endeavors to remove Snyder from the National Football League by finding him guilty of any wrongdoing.
“I believe the Committee will fail in its effort to push Mr. Snyder from the NFL—principally because Mr. Snyder is innocent of the allegations against him—I harbor no illusions that this Committee will change its present course or behavior,” Davis said.
Snyder is being investigated for alleged workplace misconduct. The owner is accused of having not only failed in protecting his female staff employees but also attempting to cover up a 2009 settlement with Tiffani Johnston. Johnston is a former Washington cheerleader that has accused Snyder of sexual assault. Snyder is accused of putting his hand on her leg and then attempted to force her into his limousine.
According to Davis’s letter, the lawyer argues that evidence that is easily obtainable is being excluded from the committee’s investigative process. Davis also claims that his client’s legacy is being tarnished as a result of the legal case being highly publicized.
“I believe that the public has a right to know the truth about this NFL franchise and why the Committee has decided to insulate itself from highly relevant information that has been available from the inception of the investigation, and that runs counter to the Committee’s preconceived narrative,” Davis said.
The investigation will continue through the Oversight Committee with the purpose of uncovering the truth of what took place involving Dan Synder and what took place inside the walls of the Washington Commanders franchise.
Snyder bought the franchise in 1999 for $800 million dollars. At the time of the deal, it was the most expensive transaction in sports history. Synder has increased the team’s revenue by more than $100 million since taking over as owner. The team was named the now very controversial Washington Redskins until 2019. The name was then changed to the Football Team for two seasons and they are in their first season as the Commanders. Since taking over, they have won four division titles and have made it to the divisional round three times.
