Clemens Can't Answer the Question of Why McNamee Was Telling the Truth on Knoblauch and Pettitte But Lying About Him...
And Why Honest Andy and His Wife Would Lie, Too

2:26 p.m.: Rep. Elijah Cummings (D., Md.), whose questioning began all of this 4 1/2 hours ago, came back to how it is that Andy Pettitte and Chuck Knoblauch swore to the veracity of Brian McNamee's testimony that they used HGH but that somehow, in Roger Clemens's case, he was lying. Cummings told Clemens and McNamee that after all the testimony, if he came into the room today and everything was "Even Steven," he would be inclined to believe "Mr. Pettitte." Why would Pettitte and Knoblauch admit that McNamee's testimony was accurate, but Clemens does not? "Andy and I are close friends, we were plane travel mates," Clemens said. "If he misheard me, on the subject that I was talking about, some gentleman using HGH for quality of life, like I stated, then he misunderstood that. I’m telling you again that he should have had no doubt in his mind when he came into the locker room when the ... LA Times report was released, about having us implicated in that ordeal, he sat down and looked at me, I still at that time did not know ... again, he looked at me wringing his hands white as a ghost, and asked me, 'What are you going to tell them?', and told him I’m going out there to tell the truth, I didn’t use any of this stuff, that alone should have took Andy off any kind of wavering about whatever he said."

"I take you at your word,'' Cummings said. "You say Andy Pettitte is an honest man. His integrity is impeccable. It's hard to believe you, sir. You're one of my heroes, but it's hard to believe you.'' -- Read the rest of the steroid hearings play-by-play in Extra Bases

Body Language Expert Pans Clemens' Performance

Lillian Glass, body language expert on MSNBC after hearings: “A lot of lip-licking going on [with Clemens], wrinkling of forehead, he’s reading… that makes you question what’s really going on with him. [On McNamee]: Direct eye contact… he was not nervous, the voice was flowing.”
