Among the other differences in their stories:
• Brian McNamee testified that he showed his wife the needles and other waste from the injection as soon as he got home that night, and that she played a role in putting them—along with the beer can—in a FedEx box. Eileen McNamee said she wasn’t even aware the box was in the house until shortly afterward, when she discovered it on a shelf in the basement during a time of flooding in the neighborhood.
When she asked him about the box, she said he replied that he was “saving things for his protection and it was none of my concern.” She said he didn’t tell her what was in the box and that he didn’t connect it to Clemens.
• Eileen McNamee said she saw the box again two or three years later in her husband’s bedroom closet and that it was open. She said she pulled out the contents and saw some vials and what appeared to be unused needles. She said she didn’t recall seeing a beer can in the box, but that there was Bud Light can with syringes sitting next to the box. She said she put the items back in the box and never mentioned them to her husband.
• Eileen McNamee indicated that the couple’s marriage began to deteriorate because of an incident in Florida in 2001—and not because of her husband’s relationship with Clemens. The jury has heard the 2001 incident referred to only as a “serious criminal investigation,” but it involved Brian McNamee being questioned about an alleged sexual assault in connection with a woman who was found to have a date rape drug in her system. He was not charged.
