NFL says it will oversee investigation of Commanders’ Snyder


AP Sports Writer

The NFL has moved quickly to take over an investigation into alleged sexual harassment by Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder. The announcement came hours after the Commanders said the team had hired an outside investigator to look into allegations by former team employee Tiffani Johnston. She told Congress that Snyder groped her thigh at a team dinner more than a decade ago and then pushed her toward his limousine with his hand on her lower back. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy says the league “will be retaining an investigator to determine the facts.” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says a team cannot investigate itself.
