The jury has reached a verdict in the Roger Clemens perjury case.

RT @nbcnews: BREAKING: The jury has reached a verdict in the trial of Roger Clemens. It is to be announced in court around 4:20 p.m.

Immediate reaction:

MT @marychastain: I wish Congress cared about Holder lying to them as much as they do Roger Clemens lying to them. #RememberBrianTerry

— Jim Antle (@jimantle) June 18, 2012

RT @llondo: Given how quick the jury's returning a verdict in Clemens case, I'll put not guilty at 10:1 and "can we have autographs" at 3:2.

— Gabriel Malor (@gabrielmalor) June 18, 2012

General consensus is a quick verdict is good for #Clemens, but that's speculation. No clue what they decided.

— T.J. Quinn (@TJQuinnESPN) June 18, 2012

This roger Clemens situation is flat out stuck on stupid

— MS (@mel4bamagriz) June 18, 2012

IF convicted, Clemens could get max 30 years, though more likely to be 15-21 months under sentencing guidelines @Reuters #MLB

How much money did the government waste on this Roger Clemens trial?

— Ryan Cox (@RMCx2) June 18, 2012

Verdict in the Roger Clemens case will be announced in a few minutes. Comes only on the second full day of deliberations.

Maybe it's just me but are there not more important things than the Roger Clemens verdict for congress to be concerning themselves with??

— Conner King (@king_conner) June 18, 2012

If only Roger Clemens had led a gun running operation that led to the death of a Border Patrol agent instead of lying to Congress.

— Sam Valley (@SamValley) June 18, 2012

I will be shocked if #Clemens is found guilty. A quick deliberation by the jury is good for him. #MLB

— Will Kunkel (@KunkelW) June 18, 2012

Why is our government even concerned with Roger Clemens?

— Li Tyler (@LiTyler1) June 18, 2012

I can't believe Roger Clemens is being prosecuted for lying to Congress. People do that all the time. They're called congressmen.

— Baratunde (@baratunde) June 12, 2012

Twitchy will update as soon as the verdict is announced.

On-scene reports rolling in.

People filing into courtroom. No sign of Clemens. Wireless still out.

— Jim Baumbach (@jimbaumbach) June 18, 2012

This live tweeting of the Clemens announcement is riveting.

Heh.

“Roger Clemens” is, of course, currently trending on Twitter.

Update:

Clemens from @TJQuinnESPN: Prosecutors entering courtroom.

— Steve Berthiaume (@BertDbacks) June 18, 2012

Still waiting, Twitter users continue to amuse.

The fate of my baseball card collection is hinging on this verdict… #clemens

— Katelyn T (@kmtom) June 18, 2012

They're lying. RT @davidharsanyi: (AP) Jury says it has reached a verdict in Roger Clemens perjury case.

— David Freddoso (@freddoso) June 18, 2012

Nice.

Roger Clemens is really putting a crimp in my day. #iwannagohome

— Chris Hoenig (@Chris_Hoenig) June 18, 2012

Roger Clemens is guilty of a bunch of things, most of them not illegal. But this case should never have been brought.

— Dan McLaughlin (@baseballcrank) June 18, 2012

I applaud the Government for spending $20,000,000 on Clemens trial so I can use it to kill 90 seconds on my show tomorrow

— Peter Burns (@PeterBurnsESPN) June 18, 2012

When court case jokes collide:

To think that Roger Clemens could once have been the Democratic nominee for president of the United States.

— Jim Antle (@jimantle) June 18, 2012

Update: Not guilty on count one.

RT @ShannonBream: Clemens has arrived in courtroom. #VerdictWatch

— Ben (@WyattBEarp) June 18, 2012

Clemens, Count 1: Not Guilty

— Matthew Keys (@MatthewKeysLive) June 18, 2012

He walks.

Roger Clemens found not guilty on all counts in congressional perjury trial.

ROGER CLEMENS NOT GUILTY ON ALL 6 COUNTS

— Tyler Peyton (@tylerjpeyton) June 18, 2012

Consensus on Twitter is, shall we say, not very complimentary of the Department of Justice. Deservedly so.

https://twitter.com/amaeryllis/status/214824707747360768

Not surprised Roger Clemens was found not guilty of lying to Congress. DOJ prosecutions of Barry Bonds & him were giant wastes of taxpayer $

— Michael Pilla (@michaelpilla) June 18, 2012

@snarkandboobs @TwitchyTeam What a waste of taxpayer's money.

Error on DOJ — Roger Clemens acquitted on all perjury counts. Plans celebration w/ John Edwards, Bear Stearns hedge fund managers

— Edward Wyatt (@wyattnyt) June 18, 2012

@washingtonpost: #BREAKINGNEWS Roger Clemens found not guilty of all six charges in his perjury trial.” & @Doj won't even question Corzine

— James Koutoulas, Esq (@jameskoutoulas) June 18, 2012

Not guilty verdict for Roger Clemens on obstruction of charges retrail another setback for DOJ- wondering why was congress probing doping?

— Andrea Mitchell (@mitchellreports) June 18, 2012

Clemens case and the John Edwards case = huge embarrassment for DOJ ~> Clemens found not guilty of lying to Congress http://t.co/2d16YjZ9

— Alfred Spellman (@AlfredSpellman) June 18, 2012

Maybe now they can focus on, you know, things like Operation Fast and Furious?
