Swing, batter batter

It is not the least bit surprising that Roger Clemens may now be investigated by the Justice Department. His sworn deposition testimony and his statement under oath to the House Oversight Committee always seemed to me to be a setup, a slow pitch, for this obvious end result: legal action against him. If they can't get him for the steroids, they can try to get him for perjury.

Martha Stewart.

Scooter Libby.

Why on earth would Clemens, represented by competent counsel who surely advised against it, fall into this trap? Why do prominent people testify under oath when they don't have to, knowing this will give hostile authorities new ammunition? Must be a combination of ego and denial that scientists have not yet cracked.

    I have watched your shows many times and you are truly a professional at defending and protecting peoples rights. I lost my right to privcy when I had a falling out . MY family totally does not believe that this could happen.. They think I am very parinoid. because I had A history of it. I am taking a chance writing this to you. I read Fair Game. doesnt matter what your mentaly state is if people want to hurt you and have the powerto do so they can..I can,t prove any of this that iswhy I am asking for your helpI don,t want revenge just Justice and my privacy. If you decide that you do not want to respond to this that is okay. The complete story would be hard to believe.. I have great respect for you and what you have done for the victims. I don,t want to be a victim anymore.Is it right for a person to take away someones privacy because they had a falling out? Sincerely, DMZ
