Proceedings are underway this morning in a steriod hearing on Capitol Hill, as baseball great Roger Clemens faces his accusers under oath.

The seven time Cy Young award winner denies ever using steriods, but his former trainer, Brian McNamee, says he injected the pitcher with performance-enhancing drugs at least 16 times.

Both will be testifying under oath before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Clemens maintains his accomplishments in baseball did not come from steriods, or human growth hormone.

Clemens released his opening statement to the news media prior to his testimony today. To read it, click on the link on the left side of the page called 'Roger Clemens' Statement'.
