Congress questions independence of NFL’s Washington probe


AP Sports Writer

Members of Congress say an investigation into sexual harassment of women employed by Washington’s NFL franchise was not as independent as the team and the league claimed. The House Committee on Oversight and Reform released documents that showed the league and the team agreed to pursue a “joint legal strategy” related to the probe. The private agreement was signed days after the league said it had taken over an investigation of the team initiated by owner Dan Snyder. The committee also found that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell asked that the investigation’s findings be delivered to him orally, rather than in a written report.
