Commanders: Republican, Democrats debate financial allegations

Although the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform has been actively looking into the misconduct surrounding the Commanders franchise, it does not seem that every member is in agreement on the probe.  

Republican James Comer of Kentucky questioned the motives and findings of the alleged financial improprieties in a letter to Democratic committee chairwoman Carolyn B. Maloney. 

“The primary mission of the House Oversight and Reform Committee is to root out waste, fraud, abuse and mismanagement in the federal government,” Comer wrote. “Unfortunately, your so-called ‘investigation’ into the Washington Commanders lacks even any foundation for exercising congressional oversight authority.”

Comer called the investigation “reckless,” adding that former Washington sales executive Jason Friedman should either have the ability to amend his allegations or that the investigation should be handed over to the Department of Justice.
