Congress calls Clemens, McNamee to testify

The New York Times reports Congress has asked Roger Clemens and his former trainer Brian McNamee to testify before Congress:

The star pitcher Roger Clemens, his former trainer Brian McNamee and three others will be asked to testify under oath before a Congressional committee at a hearing Jan. 16.

In addition to Clemens, the House Oversight Committee will call Andy Pettitte, Chuck Knoblauch and Kirk Radomski, according to a person with knowledge of the hearing who asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to talk about it.


All five people are being asked to testify voluntarily, but the committee has not ruled out subpoenas that would force them to testify. Either way, they would be testifying under oath.

Maybe we'll finally get the truth out of Clemens if he goes under oath. Prepare for more shock waves to be sent through the baseball world.
