McNamee Claims to Have Physical Evidence Against Clemens

Brian McNamee handed over vials, syringes, and gauze pads to federal investigators, claiming he now has tangible evidence that Roger Clemens took steroids and HGH. Sources told ESPN that the evidence was delivered sometime in early January. The samples are said to have Clemens blood and traces of the illegal substances. If found to be true, Clemens will emerge is one of the biggest frauds of all time.

According to McNamee’s lawyer, Earl Ward:

“I think this is a significant point in the case. We believe that this is significant corroboration.”

In response to knowledge of the evidence, one of Clemens’ lawyers, Lanny Breuer, said that McNamee has “manufactured evidence” and called the allegations “desperate smears.” He continued:

“It is just not credible,” Breuer said in a statement. “Who in their right mind does such a thing?”

This should be very interesting leading up to the open Congressional hearings next week with Andy Pettitte, Chuck Knoblauch, Clemens, and McNamee.
