Just in case you were wondering if the feds had given up on Roger Clemens:
Federal agents recently questioned a longtime associate of Jose Canseco and Roger Clemens as the Justice Department continues its investigation into whether the seven-time Cy Young Award winner lied when he testified under oath before a congressional committee that he never used performance-enhancing drugs.
The agents interviewed Glenn Dunn, Canseco’s Coral Park (Miami) High School baseball coach and a friend of Clemens since the 1990s, on three occasions in the last two months.
From the sounds of things, this Dunn guy does more to muck things up than to clarify anything, with his testimony backing Jose Canseco’s regarding that famous barbecue Roger may or may not have attended. McNamee says he was there. Many others with looser ties to Clemens and little incentive to lie corroborate McNamee’s account.
Those of us concerned that our government isn’t focusing on the important issues in the world are tearing our hair out that federal agents have spent a year tracking down the attendance list of an 11 year-old barbecue.
