McNamee claims Clemens' foundation paid for drugs
Sunday, June 13, 2010
NEW YORK (AP) -- Brian McNamee told federal investigators that Roger Clemens' nonprofit organization paid him for his training services, including providing the seven-time Cy Young Award winner with performance-enhancing drugs, the New York Times reported on its website Sunday night.
McNamee told authorities investigating Clemens for perjury that the payments were made from the Roger Clemens Foundation from 1998-2001, according to several people briefed on the investigation, the Times reported. McNamee, who claims he routinely injected Clemens with steroids during that time, said he was also paid in cash and personal checks.
Clemens' lawyer, Rusty Hardin disputed McNamee's claims, telling the newspaper the former trainer had again lied to federal authorities.
