No one has ever been prosecuted for lying to Mike Wallace, but Congress is another matter. Then again, if my little ju-jitsu analysis from yesterday was right, Clemens was poised to lie under oath in a civil suit filed by McNamee anyway, so maybe he's an in-for-a-penny-in-for-a-pound-kind-of-guy. Not saying he should -- dear God, don't lie under oath, kids -- but I reckon he might given what we know about the thin state of the evidence provided by McNamee to date.
And now that I think about it, if it took the feds several years to indict Barry Bonds for perjury when they had mountains of documentary evidence establishing his PED use against him, how could anyone -- even Congress -- pin a perjury rap on Clemens given what we know now?
Less salient question given that Congress is going to do what it wants to do, but one worth asking anyway: why in the Hell is Congress spending my money on this?
