Clemens Letter Drafted, Sources Say

The New York Times is reporting that a letter has been drafted by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform into whether Roger Clemens made false statements during the February 13th hearing between him and his former trainer. 

During the four hour televised meeting, both Roger Clemens and Brian McNamee held steadfast to their claims that the other is not being truthful.

A spokeswoman for the committee Chairman, Henry Waxman, wouldn't comment on whether such a letter was drafted.  Waxman and high ranking Republican Tom Davis have been working together since 1995 to investigate the steroid issues in Major League Baseball. 

In light of this, McNamee's lawyer, Earl Ward, said he would file papers seeking a federal judge to dismiss the defamation suit filed by Clemens against his former trainer.  This is the latest effort to get his client out of any other legal hearings.

I say, Roger, just give it up!  You called for the hearing back on the 13th and you looked guilty in front of congress and in front of the public.  You've lost any possibility to enter the Hall of Fame, and you've lost credibility amongst the fans.
