If you're one of those people that think the FBI has better things to do than investigate Roger Clemens, you aren't alone. Washington DC. Congressman Anthony Weiner voiced his opinion on the investigation into Clemens. Weiner sent a letter to the Attorney General questioning the benefit of continuing the investigation into Clemens’ testimony to Congress, saying "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.”
Weiner has said that , “Roger Clemens has been shamed. 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?”
Weiner is right, the FBI has much better ways to spend their time than investigating Clemens, but at the same time, you should not be allowed to lie to Congress and get away with it. And that is the dilemma here. You can't let people off the hook in these circumstances.
Clemens should work a deal out with the FBI where he agrees to admit that he lied, but gets to stay out of jail. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. Clemens, and his lawyers, have chosen this course and he will have to live with the consequences.
