The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has asked the Justice Department to investigate whether Roger Clemens lied under oath to Congress.
From its letter (PDF, web) to Attorney General Michael Mukasey:
We are writing to ask the Justice Department to investigate whether former professional baseball player Roger Clemens committed perjury and made knowingly false statements during the Oversight and Government Reform Committee's investigation of the use of steroids and performance-enhancing drugs in professional baseball.Meanwhile at the Astros' camp:
"We believe that his testimony in a sworn deposition on Feb. 5, 2008 and at a hearing on Feb. 13, 2008 that he never used anabolic steroids or human growth hormone warrants further investigation.
"This isn't a zoo!"
