Roger Clemens to be indicted, thoughts?

NEW YORK – The New York Times reported on its website Thursday that federal authorities have decided to indict Roger Clemens on charges of making false statements to Congress about his use of performance-enhancing drugs.

The Times said it based its report on information from two people briefed on the matter and said an announcement is expected in the near future.

Clemens and his former trainer, Brian McNamee, testified under oath at a hearing before a House committee and contradicted each other about whether Clemens had used the banned substances.

The committee held the hearing in February 2008.

  • Disgusting, absolutely disgusting. Congress has absolutely no business dragging people into their lair and questioning them about ANYTHING. Here we sit with tax cheats, communists, thieves and crooks in our Government who have skated free for ages and this is what they think is important?

  • Actually gertie, he has not been proved to have been using drugs. You can assume you know he did but that's not even the issue here. He is being indicted for lying to congress, a place he never should have been. They based it on the thoughts of 2 people, 2 people. There is no proof yet of any guilt.

  • He shouldn't have been usung the drugs but it should be a matter between Clemens and his team. Who cares.....

  • Our tax dollars hard at work. I find it laughable that a bunch of thieving politicians have anything negative to say about a sports figure under suspicion of using enhancers. While they are concocting ways to sneak millions / billions of dollars for pet projects into bills that have nothing to do with each other they confuse the masses by making the sports figure the bad guy. Smoke and mirrors.

  • Sweet,


    Is Clemens a republican, or is it just a slow day at the DNC propaganda office?

    Oh who cares. I am not keeping track of Roger Clemens. Big deal. I am not assuming anything. I did read he admitted at one time that he did use performance enhancing drugs. But if that wasn't true....fine. I don't care. Who in the hell cares?

    Is it a slow day for you that you felt compelled to answer?
