Roger Clemens’ perjury trial is coming up soon, and one of the little skirmishes in advance of it is whether Clemens would be allowed access to the notes of the investigators who helped put together the Mitchell Report. Today a judge ruled that, yep, he can have access to them.
The specific notes in question are the ones dealing with the questioning of steroids dealer Kirk Radomski and Clemens’ trainer Brian McNamee, each of whom said that they provided drugs to Clemens. Presumably he wants to be able to cast doubt on their stories and use it to bolster his own contentions.
No word on whether or not he’ll get to see the note that says “this whole investigation was half-assed from the start in an effort to make it look like Major League Baseball was doing something about steroids; it really only caught the low-hanging fruit of the PED epidemic and, in the end, told us very little.”
At least I assume that note will be in there somewhere.
