Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner wants the FBI to drop its investigation of former New York Yankees pitcher Roger Clemens.He says Clemens has suffered enough from the probe into steroid use.

The congressman added the FBI is busy with more important issues, and shouldn't spend time trying to determine if Clemens lied to Congress about taking performance enhancing substances.

Weiner suggests his fellow lawmakers have gone far enough with inquiries into steroids use by professional athletes in general, and says it's time for professional sports leagues to handle the matter.

The Department of Justice hasn't replied to Weiner's comments so far.
