Roger Clemens makes the news again. Apparently he cannot stand Manny and A-Rod stealing the headlines.
Roger: Out (US AG)
The United State Attorney General Eric Holder, all busy with torture and such, is calling himself recused from the Roger Clemens investigation going on in DC with the FBI. Apparently the Rocket showed Mr. Holder how to throw a backdoor slider. From Reuters:
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has removed himself from the criminal probe into whether baseball pitching great Roger Clemens lied to Congress about steroids, a Justice Department spokesman said on Thursday.
The FBI began the investigation more than a year ago after Clemens denied in testimony before a congressional committee that he used performance-enhancing steroids. His former trainer testified Clemens had used steroids and human growth hormone.
Department spokesman Matt Miller said Holder was recused because he previously worked at Covington and Burling, a law firm that had represented Clemens.
Roger, meanwhile continues to maintain that Brian McNamee injected his rocket rear with PEDs. The Toronto Star carries this one:
Clemens again denied that former personal trainer Brian McNamee injected him with performance-enhancing drugs in a phone interview on ESPN. "He's never injected me with HGH or steroids," Clemens said of McNamee's assertions to baseball investigator George Mitchell...
Clemens said he chose to speak out yesterday because it was the release date of a book about his alleged drug use.
"It's important for me to do that," he said. "I've seen excerpts of the book and they're completely false. ... You know, guys, it's piling on. It's hurtful at times. But I'm moving on."
Clemens must have some reason for fervent denials. A deal with McNamee "Don't ask, don't tell what you're injecting".
Others are moving on too from the Clemens affair...like the Hall of Fame voters.
