WASHINGTON (AP) -Andy Pettitte's lawyer has been in discussions with congressional staff to have the New York Yankees pitcher dropped from the witness list at a House committee hearing about Roger Clemens.
The sides were talking into Monday evening, two people familiar with the committee's work tell The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because no decision has been made.
The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is holding a hearing Wednesday to look at Clemens' denials of allegations - made in the Mitchell Report by his former trainer - that the seven-time Cy Young Award winner used steroids and human growth hormone.
Pettitte gave a sworn deposition to committee staff last week, as did Clemens and trainer Brian McNamee.
