Physical evidence of Clemens' steroid use?

Lawyers for personal trainer Brian McNamee say they turned over physical evidence to federal prosecutors which would prove that Roger Clemens used performance-enhancing drugs. Reportedly this evidence includes syringes used to inject Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone in 2000 and 2001.

Clemens gave a sworn deposition Tuesday to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. He said that in his deposition he denied using any performance-enchancing drugs. McNamee is scheduled to give a deposition on Thursday. The public hearing is set for February 13.

A Clemens lawyer, Lanny Breuer, issued a statment saying that McNamee "apparently has manufactured evidence" and called all the allegations "desperate smears," adding, "Who in their right mind does such a thing?" Apparently Breuer has never heard of Monica Lewinsky and her infamous blue dress.

Clemens had better hope that this evidence is manufactured, or else there's now proof that he lied under oath to Congress. -- Joe Guckin
