McNamee testifies in Clemens perjury case

Brian McNamee, the star witness in a possible perjury case against Roger Clemens, testified before a federal grand jury Tuesday in Washington, a sign that the panel could be nearing a decision on whether to indict the seven-time Cy Young Award winner for allegedly lying to Congress.

McNamee, Clemens' former personal trainer, spent more than 21/2 hours inside the courthouse. Accompanied by two lawyers, McNamee gave a quick wave to reporters as he left the meeting rooms but did not speak.

"No comment," said one of his lawyers, Richard Emery. "Everything is fine."

The grand jury has been hearing from witnesses for at least 16 months as it tries to decide whether a case can be made that Clemens lied under oath in 2008 when he told a congressional committee that he had never taken steroids or human growth hormone.
