WASHINGTON -- The defense in the Roger Clemens perjury case has rested, without the former pitcher testifying.
After the defense said it had rested its case, the jury was cleared from the room and U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton asked Clemens if he was aware of his right not to testify.
Clemens came up to the podium, leaned in, and said, "Yes sir, I am, not testifying."
Walton asked him if he had a chance to discuss the decision with his lawyers.
Clemens replied, "Yes judge, I sure have."

    Lying to Congress. Does anyone else see it as ironic? What's the penalty when Congress lies to us? Additionally, Roger Clemens is being tried for the same thing John Kerry did upon his return from Vietnam. John Kerry lied to Congress. However, his lies prompted decisions that affected the negative outcome of that war. Just a little more serious than Clemens lying about beefing up for baseball.
