Under persistent questioning by Rep. Elijah Cummings, (D., Md.), who reminded Clemens that he was under oath, the pitcher insisted that he never admitted to Pettitte he used HGH, that Pettitte "misheard" and "misremembered." Clemens said Pettitte could have been referring to a conversation he had with his teammate about the stimulant "ephedra.''
Clemens called Pettitte "a very honest fellow," but continued to repeat that Pettitte misheard. He also said he doesn't remember having a conversation with Pettitte in which the pitcher asked Clemens what he would say if asked about his HGH use.
