It comes as no surprise to me that Federal authorities have now indicted baseball great Roger Clemens on charges of making false statements to Congress about his use of performance-enhancing drugs.
The lip licking, lip biting, forehead wrinkling and shoulder shrugging, and fidgeting, eye blinking, lip pursing, and scratching, word repetitions, vocal frys, and specific speech and voice patterns during key testimony were all body language “tells” which indicated that he may not have been telling the truth.

Clemens was charged with three counts of making false statements and two counts of perjury in connection with his February 2008 testimony before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. According to the United States Attorney’s office, Clemens faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and a $1.5 million fine, but under the current sentencing guidelines, a conviction would likely bring 15-21 months.
Brian McNamee who was Clemen’s former trainer testified as well and completely contradicted Roger Clemens regarding whether he had used the banned substances while he played baseball.
During the testimony it was clear to me that McNamee did not show signals of deception, He appeared forthright, direct, had excellent eye and face contact and did not show vocal or speech tells indicative of deception even though Clemens claimed McNamee made up the allegations.
Federal authorities convinced McNamee to cooperate with them in 2008 in exchange for not charging him with steroid distribution.
The body language analysis of Roger Clemens clearly illustrates and confirms how the body does not lie as the truth always leaks out. www.drlillianglass.com
