Brian McNamee apparently lied before in a previous criminal trial out of Florida. This case was undisclosed at Congress but should be taken with a grain of salt.
One of the congressmen also alluded to several inconsistencies with McNamee’s testimony and concluded that McNamee lied initially to federal investigators when he withheld evidence of Clemens’ steroid use. McNamee later presented syringes and and gauze pads doused with Clemens’ blood and trace amounts of HGH.
The congressman was furious that McNamee would claim he was very good friends with Clemens, yet hold onto evidence for five years. Then, he didn’t present the evidence he held because he didn’t want to hurt Clemens, so he kind of was going back and forth with his loyalty to Clemens or to the truth.
