A lawyer for the man accusing Roger Clemens of steroid use is predicting the Justice Department will open a criminal probe into the pitcher's repeated denials.

The lawyer for Clemens' former trainer, Brian McNamee, says he thinks there will be a criminal investigation after Clemens testifies before Congress on the steroid allegations on Wednesday. McNamee claims he injected the seven-time Cy Young award winner with steroids and human growth hormone multiple times from 1998 to 2001. McNamee will also be testifying before the House committee on Wednesday.

Clemens' lead lawyer, Rusty Hardin, says he won't predict "what will or will not" happen in terms of a criminal investigation.

The House committee hearing is part of its probe into baseball's Mitchell Report, in which McNamee went public with his accusations against Clemens.
