In the same letter, the former Washington Football employee detailed that she had at least a witness to the events.

Tiffani Johnston’s allegations statement:

Tiffany Johnston described the implications of Dan Snyder in new sexual misconduct allegations in front of the US House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Reform.

Johnston said she “learned that job survival meant I should continue my conversation with another co-worker rather than to call out Dan Snyder right then, at the moment.”
