STEROID PARAPHERNALIA MIGHT INDICT CLEMENS OF PERJURYSteroid paraphernalia linking Roger Clemens to the use of performance enhancing drugs was tested positive to contain his DNA. This strengthens the testimony of Brian McNamee who was accused of injecting Clemens with PEDs and human growth hormone. Clemens did not deny that he was injected with substances but they were not steroids. He says just Vitamin B12 and lidocaine.

Clemens is accused of committing perjury for telling the Congress last year that he did not use performance enhancing drugs. McNamee says otherwise, producing evidence that would prove Clemens guilty. They included vials, syringes and gauze pads. Reports said that his DNA was found on one of the syringes and gauzes pads used to wipe his blood.

Rusty Hardin, Clemens’ lawyer, said that it was not surprising that evidence had surfaced.

It was in 2007 in exchange for not charging him with distributing steroids, McNamee was forced to cooperate with the federal authorities with their investigation of steroid use in the Major League. He provided the information to George Mitchell, federal investigator, that 3 Yankees players – Clemens, Andy Pettitte and Chuck Knoblauch – were using performance enhancing drugs.
