Fat Billy: "Not Guilty"

Roger Clemens appeared in federal court yesterday and pleaded not guilty to felony charges of perjury and obstruction of Congress.

At the hearing, "the prosecution handed over to Clemens' attorneys a 34-page 'master index' and 12 computer discs of evidence prior to the hearing, including all of the testimony of witnesses who appeared before the grand jury. Also being turned over to the defense are memoranda of the FBI's interviews with potential witnesses."

Dana Milbank, Washington Post: "The clerk read out the case, 'United States of America versus William Clemens, a.k.a. Roger Clemens' - as if the defendant were hiding behind a nefarious alias."

Jury selection is set for April 5, 2011.
