George John Mitchell, is a former Democratic Party politician and United States Senator who currently serves as chairman of the worldwide law firm DLA Piper and also as the Chancellor of the Queen's University in Belfast, Northern Ireland. That said iy all he is a Politican and they all lie so how true can this report be
On March 29, 2006, ESPN learned that Mitchell would head an investigation into past steroid use by Major League Baseball players. Mitchell was asked by MLB Commissioner Bud Selig to investigate steroids charges, mainly against Barry Bonds, brought by recent revelations in the BALCO (Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative) trials of Victor Conte and Greg Anderson. Selig has said that revelations brought forth in the 2005 book "Game of Shadows" were, by way of calling attention to the issue, in part responsible for the league's decision to commission an independent investigation. To this day he is known to have held meetings with only two active players, Jason Giambi, who was ordered to meet Mitchell by Commissioner Selig in light of his public admissions on the issue, and one additional player whose name was initially not made public but was later revealed to be Frank Thomas.
Mitchell released a 409-page report of his findings on December 13, 2007. The report includes the names of 78 former and current players for whom it claims evidence of use of steroids or other prohibited substances exists. This list includes names of Most Valuable Players and All-Stars, such as Roger Clemens, Andy Pettite, Miguel Tejada, Denny Neagle, Paul Lo Duca, David Justice, Barry Bonds, Eric Gagné, Todd Hundley, Randy Velarde, and Benito Santiago.
While a number of recent players for rivals of the Red Sox (the Yankees, the Orioles and the Blue Jays) appeared on the list released by Mitchell, Mitchell's report did not include the name of any player on the Red Sox roster as of the report's issuance, which led some observers to conclude he had "Conflict of Interest 101." 
Mitchell has taken on a role similar to that of John M. Dowd, who investigated Pete Rose's gambling in 1989.
