Was Roger Clemens at Jose Canseco’s House Party in 1998?

One thing that is really different in the testimonies of Brian McNamee and Roger Clemens is whether Roger Clemens attended a 3-day house party at Jose Canseco’s house during a 3-game series (June 8-10) between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Florida Marlins in 1998.

McNamee swears he saw Roger, Roger’s wife, Roger’s nanny, and Roger’s children at the party during the 3 days. Jose Canseco’s ex-wife Jessica claims she knows for sure that Roger’s wife was there, but was not sure about Roger himself. Roger’s nanny swears she saw Clemens at least once during the 3-day stay, and Roger’s wife and children stayed over Jose Canseco’s house at least one night.

Roger Clemens swears he was not there, providing a receipt for a round of golf on June 9, 1998. Many people, including Canseco, have said that Roger was not at the party during any point of the weekend.

Something else emerged when the evidence was stacked against McNamee in this story. McNamee told investigators that if they interviewed Clemens’ nanny, she would tell them Clemens was there. They sought the nanny’s name from Clemens’ lawyers, and they did not provide the information until Monday (2 days ago). The nanny testified that Clemens invited her to his house the day before (Sunday). Congressmen were upset that Clemens would contact the nanny before submitting her name over to investigators. Clemens argued that he told her to tell the truth. Interesting…
