Roger Clemens Trial: Federal Agent Explains Evidence

The prosecution in the Roger Clemens perjury trial is having a much better day Thursday than it had on Wednesday. Federal investigator Jeff Novitzky took the stand before a one-hour lunch break and broke down the evidence that could land Clemens on the business end of a perjury conviction.

The New York Daily News, along with various other media outlets, live-tweeted Thursday's proceedings and called the questioning of Novitzky by Clemens' attorney Rusty Hardin a "very interesting showdown."

On Wednesday, a beer can containing medical waste that supposedly links to Clemens to human growth hormone use was presented as evidence and on Thursday, Novitzky discussed that Miller Lite can. He testified to taking the bottom off the can to access the contents.

Here are some of the tweets from the Daily News (Durham is the prosecutor):

This trial was moving slowly until Wednesday when Andy Pettitte testified that there was a "50-50 chance" that he misunderstood Clemens 12 years ago when Clemens allegedly discussed his use of HGH. However, the day ended with the jury seeing drugs and needles presented as evidence, along with the testimony of Novitzky.
