Congressional delays push hearing back to Spring TrainingBy
Congress is delaying their
unnecessary grandstanding hearing featuring the big names in the Mitchell Report.
The congressional hearing involving Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte and former trainer Brian McNamee was postponed Wednesday until Feb. 13 so lawmakers can gather evidence and coordinate their investigation with the Justice Department.
The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform was informing witnesses that the Jan. 16 session is being pushed back…
“The Justice Department told the committee it would be helpful if we waited until after Radomski is sentenced,” the committee’s minority staff director, David Marin, wrote in an e-mail to The Associated Press. “This also gives us more time to delve into more recent developments, gather more information, and depose all witnesses before they testify in public.”
Spring Training starts the next day. What a coincidence. I’m sure this has nothing to do with media attention focused on baseball right before pitchers and catchers report. The circus, indeed.
