Saw this on the AP wire:

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-New York) said today that the FBI is too busy with more important crimes to spend time trying to determine if Roger Clemens lied to Congress about taking performance enhancing substances.

“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 said.

Weiner also suggested his fellow lawmakers had gone far enough with inquiries into steroids use by professional athletes and should let professional sports league handle the matter.

In a letter to Attorney General Michael Mukasey, Weiner wrote: “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.”

National security issues and actual crime more important than whether a retired ball player took steroids a decade ago? Careful there, Congressman, making too much sense could get you impeached.
