Feds Charge 7-Time Cy Young Winner Roger Clemens With Lying to Congress About Steroids

WASHINGTON – The feds in Washington, as expected, let rip an indictment on Thursday charging seven-time Cy Young winner Roger Clemens with perjury, making false statements and obstruction of Congress stemming from his dubious testimony in 2008 before lawmakers investigating steroid use in baseball.

If convicted, Clemens, 48, of Houston, could face 15-21 months under the recommended federal sentencing guidelines, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

In February 2008, Clemens testimony before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform contradicted that of Brian McNamee, his former trainer. Clemens had denied ever taking steroids.

During his testimony, according to the indictment, Clemens said: “And like I stated in the press conferences and when I first came out to make my statements when I heard about allegations, basically it pertains to what (Strength Coach #1) is saying about me. It is false. I have not used steroids or growth hormone.”

The indictment when on to say: “In truth, and in fact, as Clemens well knew when he gave his sworn statement, Clemens knowingly received injections of HGH while he was an MLB player.”

In early 2008, the House committee held hearings titled: “The Mitchell Report: The Illegal Use of Steroids in Major League Baseball.”

“The FBI has a responsibility to ensure the integrity of the investigative process is maintained, and that includes the obligation of witnesses to testify truthfully,” Shawn Henry, head of the FBI’s Washington field office said in a statement.
