According to reporter Michael S. Schmidt, citing "two people briefed on the matter," "federal authorities have decided to indict Roger Clemens on charges of making false statements to Congress about his use of performance-enhancing drugs."

He and his former trainer, Brian McNamee, testified before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in 2008, "directly contradicting each other about whether Clemens had used the banned substances."
