This is a long time Verburggen strategy. Not only does it potentially give influence but it corrupts your adversary. He tries to get you in a compromising position to later use to his advantage

Wow! - agree with Hoggie UCI looks even worse. Was thinking though maybe this is why they finally decided to leave him under the bus.
I.e they found out that LA had offered USADA $250,000 and had given UCI only $100,000 Pat & Heine must be well pi$$ed.

Agreed LA and co had wealth of experience at this over the years - just copied the blueprint from the Soprano's

Question now; what happened in the 2004 timeframe to constitute a donation?

The start of the SCA case.

The first question I would have is why was this not revealed before now.

Surely athletes making donations to anti-doping authorities should be named and shamed. This would have looked bad for Lance if it had been revealed in 2004.

Rhetorical question.

"No truth to that story," Tim Herman said to USA TODAY Sports Tuesday. "First Lance heard of it was today. He never made any such contribution or suggestion."

Maybe there's no paper trail. If not and Tygart had revealed it LA and lawyers would have done what they did to everyone else, denounced them as liars and damaged USADA's reputation therefore hindering any future action it might take.
If USADA took the bribe - they were compromised, if they refuse it, reveal it but have no proof - it can be rebuked and any future USADA investigation can be pointed to as witch hunt (with even more creedance) or what they did refuse it and not reveal it - in which case LA's not lost anything. Classic chess move.
