I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

They’re Closing In On Roger Clemens

Now that stories like this are coming out, I think we can expect to see a perjury indictment in the very near future:

Federal authorities investigating Roger Clemens on perjury charges have found performance-enhancing substances on the drug paraphernalia that his former trainer said he used to inject Clemens, according to people briefed on the case.

The discovery of the substances could bolster the claims of the trainer, Brian McNamee, that he used the various items — including syringes, vials and gauze pads — to inject Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone.

In February, it was disclosed that federal prosecutors had linked Clemens’s DNA to blood residue in at least one of the syringes that McNamee handed over to authorities. Clemens has not denied that McNamee injected him, but he has maintained that the substances McNamee used were Vitamin B12 and the painkiller lidocaine.

Clemens could have avoided all of this by keeping his mouth shut, or telling the truth when he volunteered to testify under oath.

    Oh, I thought “people are never prosecuted for perjury”? Isn’t that what Democraps told us during the Lewinsky scandal?

    “Trolling for perjury”… just one of the statist’s tools for control.

  3. Perhaps, but Clemens set himself up for this by requesting the hearing.
