Clemens hearing: Rep. Dan Burton accuses McNamee of lying

Congressman Dan Burton heat things up at the Clemens hearing, accuses Brian McNamee of lying.

Clemens hearing: Rep. Dan Burton accuses McNamee of lying Just as you think the Roger Clemens hearing, testifying before the House Oversight, and Government Reform committee hearing on drug use in baseball, couldn't get any messier, here comes Congressman Dan Burton, asking former trainer Brian McNamee "That's a lie, right?" after reading his statement. And that's not all, Dan Burton was on McNamee's case throughout his testimony, saying things like  "You're here as a sworn witness yet we have lie after lie after lie. I don't know what to believe. I know one thing I don't believe. That's you!" and "Roger Clemens is a baseball titan, and with all these lies, you have destroyed him and his reputation. How can we believe you? This kind of circus really bothers me." Naturally, the comments made by Rep. Dan Burton are making headlines.

 Brian McNamee said in his opening statements that he had injected Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone (HGH) at least 16 times between 1998 and 2001, more often than previously admitted to lawmakers. "Make no mistake: When I told Sen. Mitchell that I injected Roger Clemens with performance-enhancing drugs, I told the truth. I told the truth about steroids and human growth hormone. I injected those drugs into the body of Roger Clemens at his direction. Unfortunately Roger has denied this and led a full-court attack on my credibility," said McNamee.

 So far both Roger Clemens and Brian McNamee have had had time explaining themselves in front of the Senate, rambled and stumbled during their remarks on Capitol Hill, while we are still far from the truth.
