Waxman: "Someone isn't telling the truth"
Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) is the chair of the committee, and he is in the midst of reading his opening statement, which sets things up as not all that great for Roger Clemens.
Waxman said that Brian McNamee's credibility is increased by the testimony of both Andy Pettitte and Chuck Knoblauch. He said that, considering the testimony of both McNamee and Clemens and their contradictions, "Someone isn't telling the truth."
It gets worse for Clemens immediately. Waxman said there are "conflicts and inconsistencies in Mr. Clemens's account." He also said Clemens made statements "we know are untrue" and others that were "simply implausible."
We know now that Andy Pettitte has admitted to HGH use in 2004, as his attorneys have released a statement.
"In that affidavit, Andy informed the committee that in addition to the two shots a day of HGH he took for two days in 2002, he also took HGH for a one-day period in 2004, shortly preceding season-ending elbow surgery," three attorneys for Pettitte said.
Waxman is still going. More soon.
