The House Oversight Committee has reportedly relayed a message to the Federal Trade Commission that the Washington Commanders and Daniel Snyder “may have engaged in a troubling, long-running, and potentially unlawful pattern of financial conduct, sources told The Washington Post writers Mark Maske and Nicki Jhabvala.

The Washington Post acquired a 20-page letter submitted by Reps. Carolyn B. Maloney and Raja Krishnamoorthi to FTC Chair Lina M. Khan. The letter was then shared with Roger Goodell and attorneys general Jason S. Miyares of Virginia, Brian E. Frosh of Maryland, and Karl A. Racine of D.C.

Former Commanders VP Jason Friedman told the Oversight Committee that some Commanders front office executives reportedly used the term “juice” to refer to money that was intentionally missing and hidden from the teams accounting numbers in order to be used for unrelated events.

The letter even reportedly cites documentation that the team’s financial blunders reportedly extended to tickets to games that were registered in Roger Goodell’s name.

It also alleges that the team inappropriately assigned money to a Navy-Notre Dame game and a Kenny Chesney concert in order to avoid being included in the NFL’s revenue-sharing pool, according to Nicki Jhabvala.
