Congress/DoJ to go after Clemens on Perjury?

(Pablo Martinez Monsivais/Associated Press)

The New York Times is reporting that "A Congressional committee has taken the first steps toward asking the Department of Justice to launch a criminal investigation into whether Roger Clemens committed perjury during testimony about his use of performance-enhancing drugs, according to three lawyers familiar with the matter."

At this time, "A draft letter referring Clemens, but not his accuser, Brian McNamee, had been drawn up by staff members for the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform by the end of last week, according to two of the lawyers," though it noted that "McNamee could also be included in the referral by the time it is sent to the Justice Department."
