WASH­ING­TON— The FBI has be­gun in­ves­ti­gat­ing whether Roger Cle­mens lied to Congress when he de­nied tak­ing steroids, of­fi­cials said Thurs­day in the case of an­other base­ball star snared in a long-run­ning in­quiry into drug use by pro­fes­sional ath­letes.

Cle­mens, the All-Star pitcher and seven-time Cy Young Award win­ner, main­tains he has never used steroids or other per­for­mance-en­hanc­ing drugs. His for­mer per­sonal trainer, Brian McNamee, claims oth­er­wise, tes­ti­fy­ing that he in­jected Cle­mens with hu­man grown hor­mones and steroids at least 16 to 21 times from 1998 to 2001.
