U.S. Federal Government Investigates Lance Armstrong: Sports News at YouWager

The United Stated federal government is investigating Lance Armstrong for obstruction, witness tampering and intimidation, according to what was learned by YouWager experts.

Back in February of 2012, the U.S. attorney for Southern California dropped a two-year investigation of Armstrong.

Just last month the 41 year old cyclist confessed in an interview with Oprah Winfrey to having used performance-enhancing drugs throughout his career.

In addition, the former seven-time Tour de France winner also faces a Wednesday deadline to cooperate with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency in hopes of having his lifetime ban from competition reduced.

According to reports the current investigation is being conducted by an office different to the one that originally pursued Armstrong.

The previous case also was spurred by disgraced cyclist Floyd Landis. Furthermore, another situation arose during a “60 Minutes” interview last May when former teammate Tyler Hamilton said he saw Armstrong use EPO during the 1999 Tour de France and in preparation for the 2000 and 2001 tours.

During that investigation Armstrong assembled a legal team, hired a spokesman and briefly created a website to address any of the allegations reported by the media.
