 WASHINGTON (AP) -Congress is asking the Justice Department to investigate whether former AL MVP Miguel Tejada lied in 2005 to committee staff when he was interviewed in connection with the Rafael Palmeiro steroids case, The Associated Press learned Tuesday.
House Oversight and Government Committee chairman Henry Waxman and ranking minority member Tom Davis were sending a letter to the Justice Department on Tuesday, a person who works for the panel told the AP.
The person spoke to AP on condition of anonymity because the congressmen had not yet announced their plans.
Waxman, a California Democrat, and Davis, a Virginia Republican, were to speak about the matter at the beginning of Tuesday's hearing on the Mitchell Report about steroids in baseball.
When the same House panel held a hearing in March 2005, Palmeiro told the panel : ``I have never used steroids, period.'' Palmeiro was suspended by baseball later that year after testing positive for a steroid.
The committee later looked into whether Palmeiro should face perjury charges, but eventually dropped the matter.
Palmeiro said his positive test must have resulted from a B-12 vitamin injection given to him by Tejada. That prompted Congress to talk to Tejada, who at the time was a Baltimore Orioles teammate. He was traded to the Houston Astros in the offseason.
