Revealed: Chris Benoit “POSITIVE” drug test results raise doubts about accuracy of testimony.
Q: “Were you aware of any positive test results that Mr. Benoit had under the wellness program prior to his death?

Vince McMahon and Jerry McDevitt met with federal investigators from the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on December 14, 2007, when Mr. McMahon was invited to testify about allegations of steroid and illegal drug use in pro wrestling in the aftermath of the Chris Benoit Incident.
During this dignified testimony both men resorted to the use of the term “Bullshit” in respect to Government lawyers inquiring about serious public health issues in WWE relating to drug use:
Vince McMahon: …”it’s important that someone who tests positive, when they test positive we announce— which we haven’t run into that quite frankly. We haven’t run in the situation. And again the program is evolving guys, okay. You’re trying to do some sort of gotcha bullshit, okay. But the program is evolving.” Vince McMahon’s Testimony to Rep. Waxman’s Congressional Committee.
Jerry McDevitt: “I’m not going to allow you to harass this man. How is that pertinent to anything about whether this wellness program works? And you came here professing you have an open mind and you’re telling me that you didn’t have this in mind when you wrote this list? Bullshit.” Jerry McDevitt defending Vince McMahon during Testimony to Rep. Waxman’s Congressional Committee.
Vince McMahon’s Chris Benoit Testimony:

Mr. McDevitt: Hang on one minute……
