Update: The NFL issues statement on new accusations against Dan Snyder.
“Today’s testimony underscores that all employees deserve a workplace that is free from harassment of any kind and where they feel safe reporting misconduct.” (2)— John Keim (@john_keim) February 3, 2022
Update: Dan Snyder has responded to today’s hearing and the accusations made against him. He has predictably called every negative things said about him a lie, and pointed to the changes the organization has made over the last 18 months.

The House Oversight Committee is holding a roundtable today, which also happens to be the day after Washington’s big announcement. It is not an official hearing, and no one will be sworn in before speaking to the committee. Committee members will be listening to the stories of former employees of the Washington franchise, and that will (maybe) lead to something down the line.

If you listen even less than ten minutes, you hear very specific allegations & horrible, awful behaivor women were subjected to from former exec. Mitch Gershman AND from at least one player.— Chris Russell AKA The Rooster (@Russellmania621) February 3, 2022
DISGUSTING. @NFL https://t.co/oHvcI6y1FK
Other allegations from one former employee "Denise" about a male executive once saying to another male executive -- "I can't wait to stuff my face in that P......." @NFL has a never ending problem here. https://t.co/eaKFHulIc8— Chris Russell AKA The Rooster (@Russellmania621) February 3, 2022
For those that are looking for a 'smoking gun' to out Snyder - perhaps this might be it. A former cheerleader told @RealSportsHBO that Snyder made "repeated & unwanted advances toward her." Different than another cheerleader accusation. @NFL culture is something else, man. https://t.co/KrZMJQkpLF— Chris Russell AKA The Rooster (@Russellmania621) February 3, 2022
Tiffani Mattingly-Johnston said at a team dinner "All of a sudden, Dan Snyder's hand was on my leg" ...She said she silenty removed his hand....After dinner, Dan tried to convince her to get in his limo and had to be stopped by his attorney, who said "Dan - very, very bad idea." https://t.co/7xl9kf9mvU— Chris Russell AKA The Rooster (@Russellmania621) February 3, 2022
