Date Set for Clemens Deposition

From ESPN:

WASHINGTON -- Roger Clemens was asked by Congress to submit to a deposition or transcribed interview Jan. 26, more than two weeks before the House hearing where the pitcher and his former trainer, Brian McNamee, are to testify.

Letters were sent to Clemens, McNamee and three other people Friday by House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform chairman Henry Waxman and ranking Republican Tom Davis.

The letters ask the witnesses to meet with committee staff on specific dates leading up to the panel's scheduled Feb. 13 hearing.

"The committee asks that you provide testimony about allegations in Senator George Mitchell's report ... that you and other Major League Baseball players used performance-enhancing drugs during your professional baseball career," Waxman and Davis wrote to Clemens.

Not much to say here.
