Clemens attorney knows indictment still possible; feds asked former mistress about affair

The attorney for Roger Clemens tells the New York Daily News an indictment remains a possibility in Clemens’ federal perjury case.

"I’ve always thought it was possible," the attorney, Rusty Hardin, says. "Obviously they’re still moving forward. (Federal prosecutors are) calling people in the grand jury, all of which would be a standard thing."

A grand jury in Washington, D.C., continues to hear testimony in the case. Prosecutors allege Clemens lied under oath when he told Congress he never used steroids or human growth hormone.

The Daily News also reports that part of the feds’ probe focused on the sexual nature of Clemens’ extramarital relationship with singer Mindy McCready. During their questioning of McCready, they wanted to know whether Clemens suffered from erectile dysfunction, which is a possible sign of steroids use.

Fox News reports a sex tape featuring McCready includes her saying she and Clemens had an affair and that Clemens had ED. McCready is trying to prevent the tape from being released by an adult film company that obtained the video.

Hardin tells the Daily News he has no knowledge of the tape’s existence and won’t comment on it. "I think responding to trash only gets you in the garbage can," Hardin says. "So we’re not going to do it."

Clemens’ legal issues also include an ongoing defamation suit against Brian McNamee, his former trainer. McNamee told federal investigators he injected Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone from 1998 to 2001.
