Well, there you go. The Greatest Postwar Pitcher and the Greatest Postwar Player (don't even think about arguing; it's not close) are now both under federal indictment for the crime of We Want Baseball to Conform to Some Arbitrary Never-Existed Standard of Pure Goodness and Wonderfulness.
It seems rather unlikely, you know, that Roger Clemens was unusually dishonest in his testimony to Congress. It's not at all difficult for anyone who has followed politics for some time to come up with a list of people who lied to Congress on far more important matters but were never charged with crimes. That this anything other than selective prosecution of two gentlemen who are very, very famous (and, perhaps not coincidentally, two guys who were always disliked by reporters) wouldn't pass a giggle test. In my book, it's a clear abuse, and a shameful disgrace.
(But political scientists are apparently not monolithic on this one; see Joshua Tucker for a different, albeit totally wrong, view).
