A spokesperson for Dan Snyder fired back at the Oversight Committee’s hearing on workplace misconduct at the Commanders, calling Wednesday’s hearing a “politically-charged show trial.”

“The committee’s decision to release a ‘report’ and introduce legislation prior to the hearing is proof-positive this was always going to be little more than a politically-charged show trial, not about uncovering the truth,” the spokesperson’s statement read, via Ben Standig of The Athletic. “Hopefully, the committee will utilize its resources going forward for more pressing national matters, instead of an issue a football team addressed years ago.”

Snyder’s attorneys responded to committee chairwoman Carolyn Maloney on Monday, reaffirming that Snyder would not be in attendance at Wednesday’s hearing because of a scheduling conflict, but now, it may no longer be voluntary, as Maloney announced at the hearing that congress intends to issue a subpoena to Snyder to appear at a testimony next week.
