Houston attorney Rusty Hardin represents former Astros pitcher Roger Clemens. Here’s his statement on Congress asking the feds to investigate his client for perjury:
Statement of Rusty Hardin:
The committee¹s decision is unwarranted and not supported by the facts. Fortunately, we now move from the court of public opinion, where there are no rules, to the court of law where the rules very specifically level the playing field. Whether it is in a criminal investigation or the upcoming civil trial, what has been a frenzied rush to judgment will be replaced by a careful and unbiased review of all of the evidence.
Roger Clemens has known from the beginning that if he chose to speak publicly and challenge what the Mitchell report said about him, he would one day face a criminal referral from Congress. The fact that he chose to testify twice under oath while knowing the short-term consequences is clear proof of how strongly he believes he has done nothing wrong.
Roger will continue to fight these false allegations with every ounce of strength he has.
