I am not the least bit surprised with the acquittal of Roger Clemens on perjury charges. Indeed, I predicted the verdict nearly a year ago.
Brian MacNamee wasn’t a credible witness while former teammate Andy Pettitte wasn’t a reliable one. Indeed, this case would never have to come to pass if members of Congress weren’t so vain as to want to see themselves on TV with an MLB legend and if Clemens hadn’t stood up to Henry Waxman’s browbeating. I wish Judge Reggie Walton had dismissed the case after he declared a mistrial last July.
While justice has been served in a court of law; the question is whether Clemens’ reputation will be restored in the court of public opinion.
