Brain McNamee is about to drop a bombshell. The former athletic trainer for Roger Clemens, who has claimed that he injected him with steroids and hGH may have something more than just his word to back his claims. As reported by the NY Times:
McNamee, Clemens’s former trainer, will produce “corroborative physical evidence” for Congressional investigators that he injected Clemens with performance-enhancing drugs, the trainer’s lawyers said Wednesday.
According to a lawyer familiar with the matter, McNamee had syringes used to inject Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone that still had traces of Clemens’s blood. McNamee gave those syringes to federal prosecutors last month when they came to New York to meet with McNamee and his lawyer, Earl Ward.
Lawyers for McNamee claim that during the time he injected Clemens, McNamee took the syringes with him to dispose he had the ability to dispose of them as hazardous waste at his home in Queens. It appears that McNamee did not dispose of all of them, and in doing so would be able to show via blood and substances on the syringe that indeed, Clemens used performance-enhancing substances. The syringes in question had been given investigators before the Mitchell Report was released, and has also been supplied to IRS agent Jeff Novitzky, who has been the key investigator in the Barry Bonds perjury case and PED investigation.
With Clemens giving a sworn deposition to the House Oversight committee that he has never used any PEDs, Clemens could find himself being charged with perjury, if indeed there is irrefutable evidence that he used steroids and human-growth hormone.
On the evidence, Ward said, “It’s evidence that was turned over to the federal government and that they’ve had for some time.”
