COPY-Clemens, accuser have credibility questioned in hearing

Associated Press - February 13, 2008 6:25 PM ET

ROCKET'S GLARE: Roger Clemens again denied using steroids or human growth hormone in a 4 1/2-hour congressional hearing Wednesday. His ex-personal trainer, Brian McNamee, claimed otherwise. The credibility of both was thoroughly questioned, and the net result, for now, is something Clemens has experienced many times in his pitching career: a no-decision.

RED STATE-BLUE STATE: Even baseball can't escape the political divide. Democrats appeared to be tougher on Clemens, while Republicans often saved their more searing questions for McNamee.

ON DECK: "They both can't be telling the truth," said the committee's ranking Republican, Rep. Tom Davis of Virginia, which means the possibility of perjury charges. He said the committee could refer the matter to the Justice Department for an investigation, or not. Or the Justice Department could decide on its own to investigate.
