A source close to the House Government Reform Committee told the Washington Post on Thursday that the committee likely doesn't have enough evidence to charge Rafael Palmeiro with perjury related to his testimony before Congress in March.
"The investigation raises a lot of questions but we don't at present have enough facts [to bring him up on perjury charges]," the source said.
However, that doesn't mean that Palmeiro will be exonerated. The source said the committee will likely release the results of its investigation so the public can draw its own conclusions about whether Palmeiro knowingly took a performance-enhancing substance.
"What it will come down to is either Palmeiro knowingly took steroids or he did something [so] beyond stupidity that I don't know how to describe it," the source told the Post.
