Attorney General Eric Holder and the guy he and Obama have chosen to head up the Criminal Division of the DOJ are recusing/will be recusing themselves from the Roger Clemens investigation and any potential prosecution:
Attorney general Eric Holder has cited a conflict of interest in recusing himself from any legal matters involving Roger Clemens, the Daily News reported Tuesday.
Prior to his appointment by the Obama administration, Holder’s law firm represented Clemens during last year’s congressional probe into steroid use in baseball. Holder was a partner at Covington and Burling, a Washington D.C. firm that also employed Lanny Breuer, who was retained by Clemens.
Breuer has also been nominated for a top Justice Department post, and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told the News that Breuer will likely offer his own recusal if he is confirmed.
Just to clarify: Clemens at one point had two highly respected attorneys at his disposal, but chose to go all-in with Rusty Hardin. And they call Kenny Rogers the Gambler.
