Roger Clemens has issued a subpoena to the House committee that he's accused of lying to about using performance-enhancing drugs during his pitching career. The former baseball star wants all interview summaries, notes and memoranda related to the hearing on steroid use in Major League Baseball held three years ago by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

That includes communications between the committee and 20 people, including retired baseball players Jose Canseco, Chuck Knoblauch and Andy Pettitte. The committee revealed Friday that the list also includes Clemens' former personal trainer Brian McNamee, who told investigators he injected Clemens with performance-enhancing drugs.

Clemens told the committee that he never used steroids or human growth hormone. He is facing perjury, false statement and obstruction of Congress charges in federal court.
