Rusty Hardin, Roger Clemens's attorney,
said Tuesday night that he and other attorneys working for his firm have begun their own investigation into allegations that link Clemens to the use of steroids and human growth hormone. ...The only way Billy can win this is if he's 100% innocent -- and that seems highly doubtful. The allegations are way beyond anything for which Clemens can offer some Pettitte-esque "I did it once (or twice) and didn't like it" BS.
Hardin said the investigation of the allegations had found several individuals had not spoken with Mitchell's investigators, but who were around Clemens during the time in which he is alleged to have been using illegal performance-enhancing drugs.
"We are convinced the conclusions in Mitchell's report are wrong and are investigating the findings ourselves," Hardin said in a telephone interview.
A total assault on the charges may be the only way he can fight this. It's more than a little risky. This should be one hell of a crash and burn.
