USA v. William R. Clemens a/k/a Roger Clemens

Roger Clemens Indictment accusing him of lying to Congress


Indictment of Roger Clemens, a former pitcher for the New York Yankees, Houston Astros, and Toronto Blue Jays, on charges that he obstructed Congress, gave false statements, and perjured himself about his use of steroids, performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) and HGH (human growth horman)

The indictment charges that Clemens lied to Congress in a deposition before staff of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, telling them that he did not use steroids, PEDs, or HGH:


I have not used steroids or growth hormone” (Deposition at 9); “I am just making it as possibly as clear as I can. I haven’t done steroids or growth hormone” (Deposition at 10); and “I never used steroids. Never performance-enhancing steroids.” (Deposition at 24.) CLEMENS also testified in the Deposition that he had never possessed or seen anabolic steroids or HGH, and that he had never discussed anabolic steroids or HGH with anyone. (Deposition at 65-71, 92-98, 101- 103, 170-175.)


He also testified under oath before the Committee on February 13, 2008, according to the indictment, stating “Let me be clear. I have never taken steroids or HGH" when he allegedly did on numerous occasions, according to The Mitchell Report.
