Andy Pettitte’s attorneys released this statement:
“At the committee’s request, Andy Pettitte voluntarily met with representatives of the committee this morning, and fully answered all of the inquiries made of him in a sworn deposition. Out of respect for the sensitive nature of these proceedings, and out of deference to the committee’s request for confidentiality, we, on behalf of Mr. Pettitte, will not comment on the nature or specifics of his testimony.”
Roger Clemens will have his deposition taken tomorrow. One of his lawyers, Rusty Hardin, said that Clemens will not take the Fifth Amendment.
The real action will be Feb. 13 when the committe parades Pettitte, Clemens, Chuck Knoblauch before the television cameras along with their accusers, Brian McNamee and Kirk Radomski.
Don’t hold your breath waiting for the truth to be defined. McNamee will claim one thing, Clemens another and Pettitte will say he knows only what he did.
