I am very upset with this verdict! I mean, how am I going to sleep tonight knowing that Clemons lied to Congress about something that Congress should have NEVER EVEN BEEN INVOLVED IN and then he got away with doing to Congress, what it does to us everyday? Oh let me start counting the sheep now so that I might have some peaceful slumber!
Unlike that Brewer mvp outfielder what's-his-face. He did not ‘win’ the allegation against him, no matter what the 3 panel arbiters (bought activists) decided.
Excellent! Another overeach of the Federal Government has been smacked down and rightly so.
This should be good news for the value of my Roger Clemens rookie card.
But only someone with his wealth would afford a top-notch defense attorney.
I saw a chart the defense put up with all the flights to different cities the government sent lawyers to investigate and take depositions.
I bet the government spent 50-75 million on this case alone.
The fact that this is "news" to the news media, is a laugh when the same dudes could care less that Eric Holder is and has and continues to "lie to Congress (and thus the people of the United States of America!)
Erice Holder’s racist DOJ prosecuted Roger Clemmons to no avail. FU Eric Holder!! Clemmons lawyer bill must be half a million of so.
I don’t really care if someone lies to a bunch of stinking liars who lie everytime they open their lying mouths.
The lies were the charges.
I am so glad!
Good verdict. He didn’t lie to congress. If anything it was a fROIDian slip.
When did you first meet him? How many times have you been to his house? You talk with him on the phone today?
I never meet him so I could not say "I can't stand him". What gripes me about this is that somewhere there is someone, one person, behind this laughable prosecution. What a joke. Going after a guy that throws a little ball around.
Clemens should get every penny back that he spent on his defense and the people that prosecuted him should have to reimburse the taxpayers for this absurd folly!
Good. Lies are the currency of congress
We have had four prominent prosecutions that were going on that were at best dubious and at worse prosecutorial misconduct. Clemens, Edwards, that guy who filmed his roommate having gay sex, and Zimmerman. Clemens and Edwards are free. That guy who filmed his roommate got a minimal punishment. We’ll see about Zimmerman.
In the case of the first three, being a jerk is not illegal. In the case of Zimmerman, there’s just not enough evidence to build a case.
Actually, baseball has a monoply exclusion and is under control of Congress. MLB would need to drop their exclusion and then they could do whatever they want
