WASHINGTON — Seven- time Cy Young winner Roger Clemens, who was indicted last week on charges of lying to Congress about steroid use, is adding a former federal prosecutor to his team, ESPN.com reports.

Michael Attanasio, a federal prosecutor in Washington from 1991 to 1999, who is now a partner in the firm Cooley LLP of San Diego, is hopping aboard the defense team. The firm has a D.C. office.

The all-star defense team once included prominent Washington attorney Lanny Breuer, who was with Clemens when he testified in 2008 before Congress, ESPN.com reported. Breuer now heads up the Justice Department’s criminal division.

“Everybody wants to say we should have a Washington lawyer, and they may be right,” one of Clemens’ defense attorneys, Rusty Hardin of Houston, who noted that  Attanasio is based in San Diego, told ESPN. “But Mike was with the DOJ [Department of Justice] for eight years out of Washington and he knows his way around there.”
