Clemens fumbles on why he retained McNamee

After Clemens’s lawyers accused Waxman of “innuendo” for asking Clemens why he asked his former nanny to come to his home last Sunday before congressional investigators talked to her, Clemens struggled to come up with an answer to Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D., D.C.), who enumerated the things McNamee did–like giving Debbie Clemens HGH, and giving him an amphetamine, etc.–and asked why Clemens still kept him in his employ.
“I’m a forgiving person,” Clemens finally managed.
Said Norton: “I’m sure he’s going to heaven.”
The committee took a 15-minute recess.
