"This is War"

McNamee's lawyer:

"What does (Clemens) do, he calls him back with his lawyer in the room and a tape recorder going . . . He wants to play that game, he's going to get buried. I have no compunction about putting him in jail. This is war."

Fun quote, but what on Earth does he think his client has on Clemens that is going to put him in jail? If he had more dirt that would either implicate Clemens in drug stuff or, alternatively, set him up for a perjury rap, it would have been in the Mitchell Report already.

Of course, after seeing Clemens' demeanor at the press conference last night, it's possible that McNamee's legal strategy is going to be to goad him into physical violence during a deposition.
