Clemens: McNamee injected legal drugs

Roger Clemens proclaimed his innocence in the upcoming 60 Minutes interview with Mike Wallace.

From the CBS website:

Baseball superstar Roger Clemens denies he cheated by using banned substances and says his accuser, former trainer Brian McNamee, only injected him with the painkiller lidocaine and the vitamin B-12.


When asked by Wallace if McNamee had ever injected him with any drugs, Clemens responds: "Lidocaine and B-12. It’s for my joints, and B-12 I still take today."

Clemens calls the accusation "ridiculous" and says he "never" used any banned substances.

"Swear?" asks Wallace.

"[I] swear," says Clemens.
It will be interesting to see the rest of the interview and the news conference the next day. I'd like to believe Clemens, but I really don't know what to believe anymore.
