How many millions of my tax dollars did this witch hunt cost? Do the Feds spend this much money going after hard drug kingpins?

One count of obstruction.

Maybe he can get pardoned the way Scooter did, for outing a CIA covert operative.

Sounds like even if he doesn't get a Scooter pardon, the typical sentence for "obstruction of justice" is a short term of house arrest. I wouldn't mind spending some quite time in his mansion.

No one is acting like they don't think he used steroids anymore. Can you think of a reason why the trainer refused to testify? Answer: Because Barry would have been toast if he did. Too bad they can't take the home run title away and give it to someone who deserves it.
