Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi is serious about getting the NFL to turn over all documents related to the WFT workplace investigation to Congress.

For weeks, Krishnamoorthi has been pressing the NFL to release “all documents and communications obtained in connection with the investigation into the WFT, its management, its owners, and any other matter relating to or resulting from the WFT investigation.”

Krishnamoorthi has given Goodell and the NFL until November 4th to hand over all documents in the WFT investigation to Congress.

Goodell, however, has stated that the NFL will not be releasing any documents pertaining to the WFT investigation because he didn’t want those who came forward anonymously to lose their anonymity.


“We’re very conscious of making sure that we’re protecting those that came forward,” “They were incredibly brave, incredibly open, and we respect the pain that they probably went through all over again to come forward.”

On Wednesday, congressman Krishnamoorthi reacted to Goodell’s comments by saying he hoped the NFL would comply by the November 4th deadline or else Congress will have to use tools at their disposable to force the league’s hand on the matter.

“I hope they do comply, most parties in these investigations do in some form or fashion, but obviously I hope they do understand that we do have tools at our disposal to compel the production of documents as well as live testimony. I hope that we don’t have to resort to that
