Early indication is that Bonds is implicated in the Mitchell report for knowingly taking steroids. That alone does not make him guilty of perjury, but in my opinion is some critical evidence in the government's case. The prosecution will need to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Bonds did take steroids in order to establish a prima facie case of perjury. Bonds's lawyers will try and get him off by claiming that the exact language in the questions he was asked on the stand was ambiguous and his answers dis not necessarily contradict with the government's evidence. But with clear and convincing evidence of Bonds's steroid use now documented in this congressional report, the jury will certainly find Bonds less sympathetic and be less likely to let him slip through the cracks. If Bonds's lawyers get him off, they'll have pulled off the most impressive victory for a defense team since the O.J. verdict.
