    Clemens to Be Indicted for Perjury in Doping Testimony

    Federal authorities have decided to indict Roger Clemens on charges of making false statements to Congress about his use of performance-enhancing drugs, according to two people briefed on the matter.


    An announcement is expected shortly.

    The indictment comes nearly two and half years after Clemens and his former trainer Brian McNamee testified under oath at a hearing before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, directly contradicting each other about whether Clemens had used the banned substances.

    Part of me WANTS MLB held to the fire over doping, and Clemens, while I LIKED him as a pitcher... Lying under oath man.. dumb.

    I'm tempered by the fact that this ended up as a Gov't matter of this sort. The House and Senate have more important matters to deal with.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    This is just wrong. Not the story, but the fact that point for point, I agree with MrV's analysis.

    If Clemens lied to congress, well, that is a crime, prosecute him. On the other hand, why was this going before congress?

    That makes it a triple whammy then cause I agree with you, agreeing with Mr. V.

    Grandstanding and pretend morality, Congress at it's finest.

    When do we get to see Congress folks on trial before Congress?

    Look at the slap on the wrist Blago got. They play with a different set of rules.

    What the hell are you trying to say? Your post makes exactly zero sense.

    It's a fricking paradox is what it is.

    How can you lie to the biggest liars around?

    I really don't understand why Congress has to get involved either, it should be an internal MLB matter just like any other sport in the world.

    Honestly, if she were my guidance councilor, I'd be staring at her boobs the whole time.

    Yea, it's more funny to me than anything else because a lot of people don't take them seriously.
    It's unfortunate that people get caught in the crossfire of their stupidity.
