Congressman Says FBI Should Halt Clemens’ Investigation

March 5, 2008

ESPN.com reported that Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-NY) has sent a letter to the FBI asking them to stop the investigation of Roger Clemens. He said “the FBI is too busy with more important crimes to spend time trying to determine if the ex-Yankees pitcher lied to Congress about taking performance-enhancing substances.”

“Roger Clemens has been shamed” he went on, “I think the public record is replete with examples of how he did not likely tell the truth. What is the public benefit of continuing with an FBI investigation?”

Well Sir, the public benefit of continuing the investigation is to determine if Roger Clemens willfully and blatantly lied to the Congress of the United States of America. The same USA, whose Constitution you pledged to support and defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I believe Roger would fall into the domestic category.

If I told a lie to Congress they wouldn’t hesitate to lock me up and lose the key. Should Roger Clemens be treated differently than Barry Bonds. We are comparing Apples to Apples here, sir. Actually Steroids to Steroids, and Lies to Lies. Because Roger is white and Bonds is black, should Roger get preferential treatment? I think not.

The good Congressman is not a member of the House Oversight and Government Committee, which heard from Clemens. I don’t know if Roger Clemens is one of his heroes or what the reason could be to make him believe Roger is above the law.

In a letter to U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey, Weiner wrote: “Whether or not Roger Clemens may have committed perjury should not compete with real national security threats for the FBI’s time, attention and resources.”

Yes, while we are at it, lets forget to prosecute the drug dealers, thieves, murderers, tax evasionists and just concentrate on terror.

I have said it before in this Blog and I will say it again. If Barry Bonds is prosecuted and found guilty then Roger Clemens had better do the same or we may see a racial divide which this country hasn’t experienced in some time.

And you Mr. Representative, why dontcha do what you are paid to do? Write some more laws that one of your colleagues may think is a waste of time and not prosecutable in the name of National Defense.
