That said, I think Rusty Hardin is screwin' his client:
Hardin told The New York Times on Saturday that plans by Novitzky, a special agent for the Internal Revenue Service who has been leading a steroids investigation, to attend the oversight committee’s hearing while Clemens testified Wednesday were “unbelievable” and “brazen.” He had added, “I can tell you this: If he ever messes with Roger, Roger will eat his lunch."Those comments pissed off Henry Waxman, who is going to lead the public interrogation of Hardin's client on Wednesday, which is never a good thing. Moreover, considering Novitzky is an IRS agent -- a taxman with a gun! -- they also probably brought fresh scrutiny of Clemens' tax returns. Fair? No, but that's how the world works, and Hardin should know that.
I'm sure Hardin has his reasons for continuing to treat a legal representation like a PR campaign, but the positives he has thus far achieved for Clemens (no man can say Clemens isn't a fighter) are starting to be heavily outweighed by the negatives (risky civil suit, potential perjury trap, Debbie Clemens dragged through the mud, angry Congressmen and IRS agents).
Some have said that Hardin is crazy like a fox. They may be half right.
