While The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform continues to negotiate with Attorneys for Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte and Brian McNamee regarding when they will appear before the Committee, Chuck Knoblauch has been subpoenaed.
Knoblauch, a former player with The Minnesota Twins and New York Yankees, did not respond to invitations by the Committee and has been seemingly in hiding since being named as a steroid user by The Mitchell Commission.
It is unknown whether he has hired a criminal attorney.Knoblauch now has no choice but to appear or be held in contempt. Had Knoblauch been represented properly, his options would have remained open and he may not be in jeopardy.
Knoblauch has been linked to McNamee who has told The Mitchell Commission that he injected both Clemens and Pettitte, as well as Knoblauch, with illegal steroids. It is believed that McNamee obtained the steroids from Kurt Radomski who is scheduled to appear before Congress in early February. All of this is an attempt to determine whether or not Clemens’ denial of McNamee’s testimony is credible. While Knoblauch has been silent, Pettitte has already admitted to taking injections from McNamee.
