McNamee Lawyer: Bush Could Pardon Clemens

Brian McNamee’s lawyer may have overstepped his bounds when he alleged that President George W. Bush could pardon Roger Clemens should The Rocket be indicted.

Richard Emery, McNamee’s lawyer, said that Republicans at the Congressional hearing were more harsh on McNamee than Clemens because Clemens is a friend of the Bush family.

“It would be the easiest thing in the world for George W. Bush, given the corrupt proclivities of his administration, to say Roger Clemens is an American hero, Roger Clemens helped children. It’s my belief they have some reason to believe they can get a pardon.”

Rusty Hardin, Clemens’ lawyer, fired back at Emery for the crazy accusation. He probably overstepped his bounds with this comment:

“Richard Emery just has to quit smoking his own dope.”

This situation is far from over.
