RT @llondo: Given how quick the jury's returning a verdict in Clemens case, I'll put not guilty at 10:1 and "can we have autographs" at 3:2.

General consensus is a quick verdict is good for #Clemens, but that's speculation. No clue what they decided.

How much money did the government waste on this Roger Clemens trial?

Verdict in the Roger Clemens case will be announced in a few minutes. Comes only on the second full day of deliberations.

Maybe it's just me but are there not more important things than the Roger Clemens verdict for congress to be concerning themselves with??
— Conner King (@king_conner) June 18, 2012
If only Roger Clemens had led a gun running operation that led to the death of a Border Patrol agent instead of lying to Congress.

Why is our government even concerned with Roger Clemens?
— Li Tyler (@LiTyler1) June 18, 2012
I can't believe Roger Clemens is being prosecuted for lying to Congress. People do that all the time. They're called congressmen.

Twitchy will update as soon as the verdict is announced.
On-scene reports rolling in.
People filing into courtroom. No sign of Clemens. Wireless still out.

Still waiting, Twitter users continue to amuse.
The fate of my baseball card collection is hinging on this verdict… #clemens

They're lying. RT @davidharsanyi: (AP) Jury says it has reached a verdict in Roger Clemens perjury case.

Roger Clemens is really putting a crimp in my day. #iwannagohome

Roger Clemens is guilty of a bunch of things, most of them not illegal. But this case should never have been brought.

I applaud the Government for spending $20,000,000 on Clemens trial so I can use it to kill 90 seconds on my show tomorrow

When court case jokes collide:
To think that Roger Clemens could once have been the Democratic nominee for president of the United States.

Update: Not guilty on count one.

Roger Clemens found not guilty on all counts in congressional perjury trial.

ROGER CLEMENS NOT GUILTY ON ALL 6 COUNTS
— Tyler Peyton (@tylerjpeyton) June 18, 2012
Consensus on Twitter is, shall we say, not very complimentary of the Department of Justice. Deservedly so.
Not surprised Roger Clemens was found not guilty of lying to Congress. DOJ prosecutions of Barry Bonds & him were giant wastes of taxpayer $

Clemens notwithstanding, lying to Congress is still a crime. Still waiting for Pelosi to ask DOJ to prosecute those CIA briefers.

Error on DOJ — Roger Clemens acquitted on all perjury counts. Plans celebration w/ John Edwards, Bear Stearns hedge fund managers

Not guilty verdict for Roger Clemens on obstruction of charges retrail another setback for DOJ- wondering why was congress probing doping?

Clemens case and the John Edwards case = huge embarrassment for DOJ ~> Clemens found not guilty of lying to Congress http://t.co/2d16YjZ9

Maybe now they can focus on, you know, things like Operation Fast and Furious?
