WASHINGTON (AP) - The judge in the Roger Clemens perjury trial has dismissed two of the obstructive acts in the charges against the former pitcher.
Clemens remains charged with two counts of perjury and three counts of making false statements before Congress, along with 13 other obstructive acts.
All relate to Clemens' testimony before Congress at a 2008 hearing and his deposition that preceded it.
One of the statements dismissed was Clemens' contention that he had "no idea" that former Sen. George Mitchell wanted to talk with him in preparation for the 2007 Mitchell Report on drugs in baseball.
Prosecutors rested their case Monday. The judge ruled against Clemens' request for a dismissal of all charges.
